DIY Tutorial: Simple Rehearsal Dinner Makeup

It’s my favorite thing to see all the beautiful makeup styles available for brides. What’s even better? Being able to learn how to do it yourself! As a photographer, it’s so fun to see the magic happen when a bride sits in the hair and makeup artist’s chair. I’ve worked with Linda Margarita, who is so gifted at what she does on the wedding day. She, along with her assistant Madi, teamed up with me to document a DIY look for your own rehearsal dinner, engagement photos, or even a night out with your love. If you don’t feel confident doing this on your own, definitely consider hiring Linda for your wedding day. If you’re feeling brave and want to try this on your own, just follow these easy steps below:
