Hair & makeup artist Alli's top three tips for wedding makeup perfection:

  1. Keep makeup quite natural and light, remember, the photos will look very dated if you go for a strong fashion look.
  2. Wear waterproof mascara, just in case you cry (with joy of course!).
  3. Don't overload the lip gloss as you will 'kiss' it off very quickly. It's always handy to give your lipstick and powder to a female relative who will have a handbag for later touch-ups.
