This is a common problem for brides, especially because your wedding day is when you want to look and feel your best. I recommend finding a make-up artist whose work suits the look you're trying to achieve and who is also experienced in working with your skin type.

I offer my brides a skincare consultation when they book with me. This helps me understand their skin needs, and I'll also cover the styles and shades that suit their features. Naturally, our complexion changes throughout the year, so be mindful of selecting shades to suit the time of year you're getting married.
