Not every woman can afford to pay a makeup artist every time she wants to have her face done. You too can learn how to do your makeup yourself, from foundation to eyeshadow, to concealers and everything in between. It’s all about learning the same makeup application techniques that professional makeup artists use.
Whether you’re a bride or wedding guest, you can learn to do your own wedding makeup yourself, like many other women who are not makeup artists do. It’s a necessary skill, especially because most professional makeup artists wither would not follow you to the village for your traditional wedding OR they are too expensive. In this post, you can learn how to apply makeup on yourself. Follow the makeup video tutorials below – watch and practice along with the 3 different videos of wedding makeup tutorials below – (i) the white wedding makeup tutorial, (ii) traditional wedding makeup tutorial and (iii) the honeymoon and occasion look makeup tutorial for black/ African / Nigerian brides.

Why Should You Learn How to Do Your Makeup Yourself?
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.
Last year, one of my girlfriends took a crash course on wedding makeup a few weeks before her traditional wedding which held at her home-town – and her makeup looked so gorgeous in her pictures. So, girl, you gotta have a backup plan – for just in case. 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?
