Past Cypriot brides, your make-up tips please

Hi ladies,

Reaching out to you as would like to know if all of you who have already been married in Cyprus had make-up done?

I am getting increasingly worried about it. I have booked a lady who has come highly recommended on here and elsewhere but would like your feedback on whether you had foundation in the heat, if your make-up stayed on all day/night etc?

Hope I'm not sounding desperate but I'm panicking that I will either look too washed out or too dramatic and would really be unhappy with either as you can imagine.

I'm getting married in June so know it'll be hot! Eeeeek!

Thanks xxx

    Hi hun, I did my makeup my self, I didn't have any problems, I used a mist spray from body shop before I applied my makeup and afterwards to set it. I didn't have to touch it up at all.

    mandz u look really amazing, love everything, hair make-up dress! WOW.

    Thing is, i'm quite pale which is why I would like some assistance with it. I have really blonde hair and with my ivory dress dont want to look too washed out but at the same time dont want to have it over the top x

    ButterflyRobin thanks for the lovely comments. I am usually fairly pale, I had 10 days to catch the sun before the wedding!! I say do what is right for you, i wanted control over my own makeup as it is so personal, that said the professionals know what they are doing, maybe take some examples of what you want with you.
