Do-It-Yourself Bridal Makeup Tips
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. You want to look and feel your best, and that includes your makeup. But with so many things to think about and budget for, hiring a professional makeup artist can seem like an unnecessary expense.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to do your own bridal makeup that will still make you look like a million bucks on your big day. Here are some tips to help you achieve a beautiful, DIY bridal makeup look.

Apply the concealer with a brush or your fingertips in small dots and then blend it with patting motions.
5. Set your makeup with powder. Once you've applied foundation and concealer, use a large powder brush to lightly dust translucent powder all over your face. This will set your makeup and help it last all day long.
6. Add some colour to your cheeks. Give yourself a healthy glow by applying a peachy pink blush to the apples of your cheeks. Smile while you apply the blush so that you can easily see where your cheekbones are and blend the colour upward toward your hairline.
7. Define your eyes. Start by applying a nude eyeshadow all over your eyelids as a base colour. Then, use a darker shadow to create
