Visit with a few makeup artists before you're ready to walk down the aisle

With your wedding day on the horizon, you probably have more than enough things on your mind - from invitations to seating arrangements to planning out your reception menu. However, your makeup choices will be seen in your wedding photos for years to come, so make sure you stop in and visit more than one makeup artist to craft the perfect style.

When it comes to bridal makeup, conventional wisdom says that less is more. With this in mind, you're going to have to find a good mixture of tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and other cosmetics that won't detract from the look of your dress.

Ask around and try to find as many different opinions as possible. Visiting a few salons and getting a sense of what your skin will look like under varying light sources and when exposed to flashbulbs will be vitally important in planning out your bridal makeup.

Most importantly, have fun with the experience! It's not so often that you get to be pampered, not to mention the chance to try out new cosmetics, so enjoy every minute of the process to find the look that suits you.
