And if it's related to makeup, it's usually best to rely on a professional's help so you look your absolute best, and you don't have to fumble around with makeup on your big day.

Here are Singapore's Top 10 Bridal Makeup Artists, based on votes on Pollbook.
1) Cynthia Oh
Cynthia's repertoire is awesome to say the least, as she has background in styling for editorial photo-shoots, meaning she knows exactly what will look good on camera - something very important for brides who want to look their best in their wedding photos.

2) Valerie TangYong
Valerie TangYong has won awards for her styling, and her work has also been featured in many local bridal magazines.
