Brides Today: What’s the one piece of beauty advice you have for brides on their wedding day?
Lisa Haydon Lalvani: Feel every emotion, trust everything you do, and live every moment to the fullest.
BT: Tell us about your makeup bridal makeup look.
LHL: My wedding was a close-knit affair with only a few of our closest friends. I did my own hair and makeup and kept things very natural. I dabbed concealer under my eyes and areas that needed it; applied mascara on my top and bottom lashes; contoured my eyes to give them depth, and applied a moisturising lip balm.
BT: A classic beauty trend that you think will never go out of style.
LHL: Beautiful skin.
