Hair and make-up
|Q||I'm planning on doing my own bridal hair and make-up, but I'm not great at it. Do you have any tips that could help me?|
|A||Kat Sykes says: Having a lesson beforehand is a great way to build confidence. I love running these sessions with my brides. We'll work together to come up with a look that's manageable for you and will last all day. We'll look through your hair and make-up bag to get the best results with the products you already have, and I can also suggest some of my favourite tried and tested products too.
As well as giving you tips for achieving your desired look on the day, the prep in the run-up to your day is just as important. I'll also provide you with a personalised beauty routine to help your skin and hair to be at its absolute best and share my expert tips and tricks to leave you feeling confident in creating a beautiful bridal look.
If you're just feeling in a rut and would like to improve your skills my personalised classes can help with this too. I'll show you how you can use hair and make-up to flatter and enhance your natural features.

|Q||How to inject seasonal brights into every element of your wedding…|
|A||Alev Miller says: My ethos is natural make-up that's you but on a really good day so I really love it when my brides ask for something brighter and there are so many different ways to incorporate it into your look. You don't have to go bold or heavy, but a soft lilac eye, bright coral cheek or a glossy pink lip will instantly transport you into the realm of healthy wedding day glow. And who doesn't want that?
Hair accessories are also a very quick and easy way to inject some colour and there are so many options! Fresh or dried flowers, hair jewels just to name a few. Added as a side clip to waves or a pop of colour in a bun, the ways to style hair accessories are endless. With so many little details it's very easy to make sure your hair and make-up is as colourful and beautiful as you are.

|Q||I'm not used to wearing much make-up but I want to look flawless on our big day, whilst still feeling like me. Help!|
|A||Mathew Alexander says: For an effortless look it's important to choose a make-up artist who specialises in red carpet or event make-up rather than someone who specialises in bridal. A make-up artist with knowledge, experience and expertise in red carpet looks will know how to enhance your skin and features, without giving you a traditional bridal look. I'd always advise that you book a trial ahead of the big day to set your mind at ease. Ask for a look that'll give you enough coverage while enhancing radiance and creating definition of your face structure. A great professional will work like an alchemist, combining products to make formulas to achieve the best result.|
