This video features some of my thoughts and ideas about bridal make-up and kicks off my first bridal week on There will be more ideas and tips posted as blog entries throughout the week on my website. In addition to more tricks and tips, I’ll be posting two classic bridal make-up tutorials this week. There are many looks you can do for a wedding but for now I’m keeping it simple and elegant. Both of the looks can be taken further with the addition of eyeliner, individual lashes or more emphasis on either eyes or lips to suit the bride and wedding.

I can’t guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.

I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me or sent to me by make-up companies to use in my professional capacity as a make-up artist for fashion and celebrity photo shoots, red carpet etc. I am also sent products by many of the top magazines to judge for awards.

I do not accept payment and am not sponsored to make any of the films on this channel. Some of the links under the videos and blog posts on my site are affiliated however and as stated before, I only feature products I like, or want to try.



  1. Thank you Lisa, you are my favorite coach in makeup related tutorials. You are professional, smart, balanced, self-confident, and kind. I love your way of communicating, tone of voice, and excellent advices that you share with us. Big big thank you! I love your English accent too. 🙂

  2. Lisa, I just wanted to say how much I admire your work. It's so seamless and your clients always remain looking like themselves, and that is difficult to find in "makeup artists" these days. Just two days ago I had a bridal makeup trial and the natural makeup photos I sent transformed into this Instagram-esque look. I just felt so ugly. My eyes felt so heavy I could not blink properly. I wish there were more artists like you <3

  3. Hello Lisa. I'm getting married in upcoming summer holidays and I'm so confused about which foundation I should use. I've been loving the makeup looks you do and such an amazing makeup artist you are.
    My skin is thankfully very clear and but is a combination skin. I'm 24 and I for everyday, use Clinique BB cream for evening out my skin tone.
    I just want like the best foundation for my skin. Would you be kind enough to suggest me?
    Looking forward for you kind reply.

  4. +Lisa Eldridge What would be your current favourite indestructible, photography-friendly foundations for brides?  Getting excited about planning my look for my big day!  These videos are such a helpful resource!!

  5. Lisa, I agree with every word you say. as the date getting very close, and i will makeup myself, you helped me to place my thoughts and clean all the advices i get around.
    Thank you,

  6. Hi Lisa, I'm sure that you have been asked this question a billion times, and that i may have just missed your answer. But, what high street branded liquid or mouse foundations would you reccommend for long wear? my usual one has SPF in, which you say is not a good idea. Also, I have never worn primer in my life… is this a necessary step?

  7. my poor friend doesn't wear makeup and she's being forced to put some on. I told her it was merely a suggestion to wear a little, such as concealing around the eyes since she has dark under eye circles, for the sake of her photographs that'll be constantly taken. The first person she went to thanks to her mother was a woman that disregarded her wishes and my friend said she looked like a Renfaire whore at the end of it. She's kind of getting bullied by her mother, but most especially a really awful aunt to put makeup on and to have her hair done when she A) has no idea what's going on and B) has no care for anyone of it and regards it in the same way one does electroshock therapy. I've sent this video along to her in hopes that Maybe it'll help her see what someone who knows what they're doing suggests and that might help her find a better makeup artist.

  8. I wish you could do my makeup! I have really pink~ish skin and tend to blush horribly all over my face! I can't seem to conceal it and no one knows how to 🙁
    I really want to rock a red lip on my wedding, but seems like that dream is going bye bye T__T

  9. Hope you read this I NEED YOUR HELP!! My cousin is getting married in december, I should do her make-up. The problem for me is: she never wear make-up! Sometimes a little bit mascara and black khol, that's it. Now I'm searchin for the right Foundation. She has very dry skin, is pale as snowwhite, getting married in winter AND her skin is very sensitive, with much redness in it. I HOPE YOU READ THIS AND CAN HELP ME! I'M DESPERATE!

  10. Hi Lisa! I've been following you for a few years now and though I've watched these videos before I'm now taking good notes because I got engaged last week! These are so helpful, but I am wondering if you wouldn't consider doing a wedding series similar to how you did your foundation course? I'd love to hear your tips on what types of formulations to choose for various weather conditions, as well as how to decide what makeup look best suits the style of the wedding (formal, country, beachy, etc).

  11. Thank you so much for this video!!! I am asian and more on the tanned side. I do have a yellow undertone and I've had problems finding a great lip color for my skin for as long as I can remember. thus, I only stay on the safer side of things and apply nude/flesh tone lip glosses and very light browns, caramels. What colors would you suggest to try out? Thanks so much!

  12. What great advices!need one more of you.I have couperose skin and I have to hide my redness that is already visible and it will appear at the time, because I tend to be red when I get nervous would like your advice, as it should do,products that you find appropriate.I use the clinique makeup to the skin with not think it's the most efficient.the fact of living on an island (azores) also helps me not have access to many products .. In preparation for my wedding this worries me themost.

  13. I'm watching this to calm myself :). I'm going to do a test run of makeup on a bride to be who asked me to do her makeup next year. It's so good to hear that my ideas of bridal makeup are not at all wrong 🙂 and get ideas :). And I alo know now more questions that I have to ask her tomorrow to be able to do her makeup really well. I want it to be perfect :). I hope that the test run will go smoothly and she'll be happy and even happier on the big day :).

  14. Is there any photo-freindly foundation you would recommend? I wa stold that Makeup forever face& body is a good one, but someone else say it's not enough with the coverage…
