There was much publicised about whether Kate Middleton did her own make-up for the wedding, and if she did, it really is pretty brave considering the amount of scrutiny that she knew she would be under. But more and more brides are choosing to do their own make-up as most fear that they won’t end up looking like themselves. Personally I think I’d still love to get my make-up done as I doubt I’d ever be able to make it stay put all day but if you were getting married abroad then it would definitely pay to know how to do your own make-up.

With this is mind there are some really great professional courses specially tailored to bridal make-up like the one at The London College of Fashion or opt for a private make-up lesson courtesy of The Session School which can be done at your home or at their London studio. Alternatively visit some of your favourite make-up brands like Bobbi Brown or MAC who will offer expert advice and lessons on how to create the perfect look for your wedding day.
