One of the primary concerns of any bride on her wedding is her appearance. Her dress, shoes, hair have to be perfect and of course her make up has to match too. She has many people to impress on the day – the most important being her husband who will be waiting expectantly to see the beauty whom he would have as his wife. This and the fact that the make up has to be all purpose i.e suitable for both the outdoors (natural lighting), indoors (artificial lighting) and the glare of the cameras flashing lights. This all put a lot of pressure on the make up artist who has to sculpt the best look to ensure that all these requirements are all met to his/her clients are expectations.

In this article we look at  Zimbabwean Makeup artists who if hired to style you on your wedding day will ensure that you look you best.
