One Month Before
Make an appointment with your shortlisted makeup artists for a trial.
During the trial, its the time for you to share with the makeup artist what you like and for you to assess if you are comfortable with the makeup artist and his/her styles.
Do wear your preferred colour contact lens for the trial if you are planning to wear for your wedding day as the lens will affect the makeup looks.
Try to wear a plain white top for better visualization.

The Hens Party
You want to reward your bridesmaid before your wedding day as well as celebrate and pamper yourself. You may try a pampering group spa and a hot night out partying or a makeover photoshoot for the whole gang. Need help with ideas and planning of the Bachelorette Party? You could also consider a party planner like partyincrime to create a half day event for your sisters.
