Remember our first encounter with make-up? We probably got it all messed up because we had no idea ‘winged cat eyes’ existed or that we could contour our face to make it look more… uh, shapely? Fast forward to today, make-up tutorials are our favourite way to pass time. And we have in our big fat make-up kit more than a few hacks. We love make-up!
But nailing the perfect bridal make-up is a different ball game altogether, it is not easy. And since we’re always solving all your problems while you’re busy with all the preparations, we have rounded up the best in the industry. Where to find them? Right in your city!
