Dewy complexion

"Many brides want a fresh dewy look to last the day. Here I prepped the skin and used ️Make Up Forever primer, and built up my Bobbi Brown foundation so it wasn't noticeable. I lightly contoured and highlighted first with cream then powder, both from Anastasia Beverly Hills contour palette. For the eyes I used my trusty naked palette, Browns, for that soft all-over look with Maybelline Gel Liner lightly smudged to give a smoke and natural Eylure lashes to boot. Finishing with MAC Creamy Modesty topped with Shu Uemura Pink Glitter Gloss for that girly pop and MAC blush on the cheeks." Jas Virdee, make-up artist

Soft chignon

"I love the romanticism of flowers and braids combined - and flowers can be a really cost-effective way to make any hairstyle look extra special. For this look I teamed a fishtail braid with a soft messy chignon and arranged the flowers by hand to match the bouquets. This hairstyle is perfect for anyone who wants an up-do that can be designed to hide their ears or be softer around the face." Michelle Lacey, hair and make-up artist at Bumblebee Bridal

Neutral and natural

"It's all about the eyes for this look. I used warm brown tones blended together for a more subtle take on the smokey eye. Individual lashes and just a hint of gold glitter (I love bareMinerals Queen Phyllis) make the eyes pop. Smudge brown eyeliner into the lash line or for a more dramatic look, use black gel liner. I love this look because it is versatile and can be adapted to suit everyone." Michelle Lacey, hair and make-up artist at Bumblebee Bridal

Statement style

"Occasionally a bride wants to opt for something different. In this case we went for a smokey eye balanced with a nude lip. The skin is prepped and primed to give a flawless base with Make Up Forever, followed by cream highlight and contour buffed in using Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour, the foundation is then stilled on top using Bobbi Brown. This is then set, followed by Powder Nightlight and contoured again with Anastasia Beverly Hills, to give more depth and definition. For the eyes, I used Maybelline Gel Liner and added Carbon Black Shadow from MAC, smudging upwards to soften a harsh look. Add to this some wow lashes for that showstopper look. For the nude lips, we went for Creamy Modesty from MAC - a firm favourite with all my brides, and a blush to complete." Jas Virdee, make-up artist
