Why Should You Learn How to Do Your Own Wedding Makeup

With many traditional weddings taking place in the bride’s hometown/ village, it can sometimes be hard to convince your favorite makeup artiste to follow you to the villa’. Besides, can you afford to pay for taking them out for their base? Besides that, there shouldn’t be an excuse for a bride’s face to look really dolled up on her traditional or white wedding day. After all, after the wedding nko? Your groom expects you to keep looking pretty when escorting him to occasions – unless you want him to be looking at other pretty made-up faces when both of you go out together.

And that is, by learning how to DIY (Do It Yourself). Even the rich girls (like Hate Middleton) DIY, why not you – if the need arises?
