We'll start with the African-Caribbean chicks!!!I saw this flawlessly made up bride via Bella Naija and although I suspect she may have gone for a professional make up artist, I think with some practice our DIY brides can achieve this look. If you prefer to be made under, just go for more subtle lip colours.

So I contacted the very inspiring author Sisi of MyModest Mouth, and she was very happy to share her video tutorial on make up practice. She will be doing make up for a bridal party in the next couple of weeks. I'll definitely keep you posted.
Hope this helps.

A few budget beauty tips ahead of your wedding :
- Invest in Clarisonic Mia brush- for deep cleansing of your face and a face steamer from Argos. It leaves your face with a glowed up look!
- Water has to be your best friend! I am not talking sips of water, I mean drink bottles.
- Up your fruit consumption, dried, fresh....just eat fruits!
- Use a good cleanser. I use Clarins when I'm rich and Simple when I am seriously broke
Alternatively, if you choose to use a professional make up artist I advise that you do 3 things.
- First, scout around for pictures of the ideal look you're going for.
- Book a make up artist months ahead of your wedding day and always have a trial.
- A friend.... (here we go again)soon to be wed was advised to go for a timeless look rather than a trendy one as your wedding photographs live forever. You really don't want to look back in regret.Always have a good honest friend around for reassurance ~ you must look hot even if you are going for a natural look!
