It's extremely important to plan out the brides look prior to the big event. Lets be honest here, we've all seen the throw back pictures of some 80's bridal beauty. We highly doubt they were thinking "how can I make my look timeless"?
When it comes to bridal makeup less is more to achieve the timeless look. Focus on the eyes, a nice glow on the skin with a light tan and natural lips. Go with a foundation that is meant to be photographed.
