Doing your own make-up and hair? You have our approval, but make sure you follow this to a T: Research magazines, YouTube, and blogs for ideas and instructions. Shortlist the looks you like. Try them out and pick your favourites. Shop the products and tools you need. Pick quality over quantity. Practice, practice, practice. You need multiple sessions to achieve near perfection. Speak to your photographer and make sure the lighting is in tandem with your look. Recruit friends and family to assist you on the final day. Sleep soundly and eat well before D-day. You don’t want last-minute dark circles and zits.
