Winter wedding makeup tips for the winter brides

Winter wedding makeup tips

Winter weddings are enjoyed a lot by the guests for the sumptuous lunches and dinners but are dreaded by most brides-to-be. For the simple reason, that winter brings along problems like dry skin, chapped lips, and limp hair. Getting the right bridal makeup is the key to look gorgeous like a princess and get those dreamlike wedding pictures. We have here some winter wedding makeup ideas that will make all brides-to-be glow.

Moisturize your skin

One of the most important winter bridal makeup tips includes keeping your skin hydrated. Winter robs your skin of moisture and dry skin will make any kind of makeup look flaky. You can never have enough water but more than that; apply a moisturizer generously on your face every time you wash it and before applying makeup. Apply skin-renewal night cream before going off to bed. This will keep the skin hydrated and moisturized throughout the night and you will wake up to a supple cream the next day.

Lip care is a must

Even if you are using the moistest lipstick you cannot apply it on your lips without a coat of lip balm or petroleum jelly. Lips tend to get chapped and dry in winter and it shows from under your lipstick if you skip this basic step. For plump looking lips give them a base coat of lip balm. Add this to your list of winter bridal makeup tips because chapped flaky lips is a strict no for the brides-to-be.

Do not skip the SPF

It may go against the rules but you need to break a few rules and follow some when it comes to winter bridal makeup tips. One of those is including SPF rich sunscreen in the winter makeup kit. This is applicable for all and not only the brides-to-be. Ultra violet rays are weaker in winter and you don’t get tanned easily. But, it tends to cause wrinkles, premature ageing, dryness, and damage the skin. During winter, opt for water-resistant sunscreens free from fragrance and parabens. This practice will make you glow on your D-day and even before after.

Apply cream-based makeup

Go for a combination of powder and cream-based makeup as it will keep your skin moist throughout the day. Also, touch-ups are easier to do in a cream-based makeup. Cream-based eye shadow, blusher, foundation, and liquid highlighters are easier to apply on the face during winters. You can also add serums to your makeup for a dewy look.

Try the bold look

Summers are when you keep the color palette subtle but winter gives you the chance to go bold. When you want everything around you to be bold and bright, why not go for some bold color lipsticks like deep maroon, berry, wine, and crimson red along with bold smoky eyes. Bold colors tend to stay for long and look great against the bleary winter setting.

Use waterproof makeup

You need waterproof makeup in all seasons, unlike the myth that you need it only to protect your makeup from sweat in the summer months. Cold harsh winds and even smoke during wedding rituals might make you teary-eyed. After, no brides would want their face to get covered with running mascara and smudged blush and kohl.

These winter bridal makeup tips will make you look like a princess right out of a fairy tale wedding. The signs of happiness that comes from a perfect wedding makeup will automatically show up. Keep yourself hydrated before, during, and after the wedding day as it helps to retain that glow for a longer time.
