One’s wedding day is an exhilarating and stressful experience. The makeup, hairstyle, and dress are essential to how confident a bride feels and how fondly and joyously she later remembers the event. For that reason, bridal makeup needs to be practiced beforehand, diligently planned, and properly executed on the big day. It also needs to suit the bride’s features, wedding dress, and even the season in which she is getting married.
