Isn’t it magical to have your wedding amid the natural splendor of all-white winter? Visualize holding a marvelous wedding reception indoors with clear white snowy backdrop outdoors! It’s truly a delightful “fairyland-like” experience.
However, in this wintry condition, with cold chapping the skin, much care and consideration is needed to achieve your dream bridal look. In winter your skin tends to become lighter. Not only that, the natural lighting too would be dimmer than summertime. So, your makeup should be more striking and attractive rather than the light summery kind.
Begin with a quality foundation close to your own color to balance out your skin tone. If you wish to put in a trickle of color to your skin, try a lightly tinted moisturizer instead. Once the foundation has been set with loose powder, a natural tint of bronzer can be swept over the whole face.
Blush your cheeks with warm tones. Though soft peach shades might work wonders in summer, choose somewhat intense hues like nutmeg, deep coral, medium to deep rose or mauve colors for winter.
Go for eyeliner and mascara that is smudge-proof and waterproof. Use black or brown on your upper lid and brown on your lower lid. You can also apply white eyeliner on the tear line to make your eyes appear bigger and brighter.
If your skin tone is warm consider metallic-yellow, bronze, toffee and russet cocoa shades for your eyes. You may even opt for cooler shades like silvers, gray, pewter and mushroom. Another hip wintertime trend for your eyes- layer your eye shadow so that there is a soft color like white beneath, flanking the eyelashes. Then, infuse colors like burgundy or rose to the top and blend in.
For your lips, try out eye-catching colors such as terracotta, cinnamon or warm red. Raspberry reds, rosy pinks, burgundy, sheer coral and copper shades are all exciting lip shades for winter.
Typically wintertime renders everyone to show up the glitter and the shine, but step back from this for your wedding. Though gleam and shimmer are beautiful, they may make you look oily, plus they appear awful in photographs.
