If you are one of those brides to be who feels that you are fairly comfortable with creating your own wedding look, then maybe doing it yourself is a great option for you.   It's far cheaper and after all you know your skin type and what shades and colours suit you. 

The brands represented are just a few of the professional make-up ranges available.

To help you with your choices we have included the top brands to give you an idea of what is out there.

We suggest that you try a few out and see what suits you.  Wear it for a day to see whether it is long-lasting or would need reapplying during the day.

After all this is your big day!
