For most, getting married is listed pretty high on the “happiest day of my life” list and for good reason. It’s one of the only days where you get to profess your love for your person in a public way surrounded by friends and family (or a justice and a witness). It’s also a day when you want to look your very best — and while many employ the help of a professional to make sure their day goes off without a hitch, it’s also perfectly okay to try your hand at doing your own makeup for your special day. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up easy-to-follow, DIY bridal tutorials to help you get a look you’ll love.
