You’ve dreamed of your wedding day for so long. You want everything and everyone to look perfect and beautiful. The key to looking your most beautiful and stunning on your special day is having the right hairstyle and make-up that will last throughout the day. Hiring the best professional hair and make-up team is your ticket to looking your very best.

Don’t be afraid of make-up if you’re not used to it. The modern bride values beauty beyond make-up, but also recognises what make-up can do to enhance her inner beauty. Here’s what you can do to look your absolute best.

1. Regular skincare for good skin condition
Avoid having drastic changes done too close to your wedding date like having an invasive facials or spray tan. A good skincare regimen that includes proper hydration, exfoliation and moisturization gives you beautiful skin that will enable make-up to sit better and last longer.

2. What’s your dream wedding look?
Plan your look for your wedding day. Do you want simple, natural looking make-up and hairstyle? Or do you fancy an elaborate look, with an intricate hairstyle copied from vintage photos? How about a Korean-inspired look?

3. Who will do your hair and make-up?
When deciding on a hair and make-up team for your wedding, look at the portfolio of a few service providers and see if their style matches what you have in mind. Talk to your make-up artist about the look you want to achieve. A good bridal make-up artist is detail-oriented. He or she will study your features and will be honest to let you know if your dream wedding look will bring out your best features or not. The artist knows how to highlight your most beautiful features and understands how climate and lighting will affect your final look.

4. Book a make-up trial session
Request a trial session a few weeks before the wedding. Bring photos of your preferred look to your make-up trial. The idea is not just to copy a certain look. You should still look like you! The result should be a lovelier version of the everyday you. During the test run, wear a white blouse or dress with a similar neckline to that of your wedding dress. Also, bring along the jewellery you’ll be wearing. It will help your hair and make-up team visualise the look for the actual wedding day. Take some photos when you’re done and bring these on your wedding day appointment so the artist can easily recreate the look.

5. Have a touch-up kit ready
On your wedding day, ask a bridesmaid or friend carry a touch-up kit that includes your lipstick, powder blush and other needed make-up to freshen up your look throughout the day.
