It's the day on which all eyes are on you, and choosing the wedding makeup to best complement your bridal look is an important detail to consider: you need to be photo ready. In search of professional advice, we've spoken to makeup artist Emily Turnbull of Love Moi Makeup, who gives us the top bridal makeup trends for 2015.

"The most popular bridal looks tend to be either very natural, or those which are timeless and won't look dated in 10 years time," explains Emily. "The most important thing to remember when deciding on your wedding day makeup look is to choose something which feels like 'you' and makes you feel confident and your most beautiful."

1. Natural Beauty
Natural feature enhancing makeup sounds simple but usually requires as many products and as much time as more dramatic looks. The most important elements to a natural look are usually evening out and perfecting the skin, defining brows and eyes and adding a natural flush of colour to lips and cheeks. This is perfect for brides who dusky wear very little or no makeup day to day, and don't want to look too different on their big day.

2. Bold Metals 
Metallic elements look beautiful to reflect light and add shimmering tones for a glamorous bridal look. Choose gold or pewter on the eyes for warmer skin tones, and silver, champagnes or rose gold to highlight fair skin and eyes and add glow and texture for a modern and defined makeup.

3. Pinup Beauty 
For a makeup lover, a gorgeous bright lip and a full winged liner accompanied by flawless velvet skin is a gorgeous timeless look which is feminine and fun. Hollywood reds, damsons or hot cerise pink in matte tones with plenty of liner and lashes, and defined brows are a nod toward the glamorous 1940s and 1950s. This looks works for almost anyone who has the confidence to pull it off!

4. Smoky
Eyes are more often than not the feature that most brides want to draw focus to and smoky, defined eyes are a great way to do this. For your wedding day smoky eyes need to be soft and not too heavy, ensuring the eyes are defined but still look wide and open, and most importantly the definition suits your eye shape.

5. The English Rose
Perfect for fair skin tones, using pinks, pastels and plums, another beautiful soft look perfect for all seasons. Focus can definitely be more toward the lips for this look - choose from raspberry to rose to damson to petal pink, and team with a with a soft neutral eye for a timeless and beautiful look using universally flattering tomes.
