Professional make-up tips for your wedding day!

Professional make-up tips for your wedding day!: Image 1 Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life, so it's important for you to feel relaxed and confident and able to enjoy it.

Choosing your bridal make-up can be very personal. Some brides prefer to do their own make-up, while many choose to enlist the help of a professional make-up artist to take the pressure off.

Here Maria Meskheli International Make-up Artist and Creative Director of Delfy Cosmetics shares her top tips for bridal make-up application.

On your wedding day it's essential that you choose a flawless and long lasting foundation to match your skin tone. I recommend Delfy Cosmetics Water Proof Foundation (35ml), £25. This luxurious double wear, long lasting and water resistant foundation provides natural and buildable coverage. It brightens the skin tone and softens skin imperfections for a beautiful radiant finish on your Wedding Day.

Highlight and contour with Delfy Cosmetics Golden Shimmer for Face (30ml), £25.This luxurious silky and shimmering highlighting gel has a lightweight and pigmented formula, which reflects light and enhances your natural radiance for a luminous photo ready finish on your Wedding Day.

For extra definition, I use Delfy Cosmetics Water Proof Long Lasting Eyeliner, £10.80 to accentuate the outer edges of the eyes and make the lashes stand out. This eyeliner has a very long and slim tip for precision application. I start at the outer edge of the eyes and work in towards the nose, making the line thinner so it gradually fades into the lash line.

Striking lashes are a must have on your wedding day. To define the lashes, I use Delfy Cosmetics Extra Volume Mascara, £17, that provides a stunning 3D lashes effect, adds volume and provides intense colour to the lashes. The unique applicator is able to reach the most inaccessible lashes in only a few strokes, accentuating and tripling the volume of lashes.

I line and colour the lips using Delfy Cosmetics Lip Liner Water Proof, £8.80 that has a smooth, creamy texture and makes the lip colour last longer.

I complete the look using Delfy Cosmetics Velvetly Matt Lipstick, £16. Enriched with Vitamin E, Aloe Vera and Rosehip, this luxurious lipstick with a velvet texture provides a beautiful matt finish without drying the lips, for the perfect bridal pout to say 'I do'.

For beautiful bridal nails, I apply Delfy Cosmetics Haute Couture Nail Polish (15ml), £12.50. This professional quality nail polish with a gel texture gives an extreme lacquered shine and provides an intense colour for up to seven days. Simple and easy to apply, Delfy's Haute Couture Nail Polish contains Citral, a natural active ingredient with strengthening and hardening properties to, seal and protect the nails on your wedding day!
