A winter wedding can be a bride’s dream come true. With the beautiful mist, cold evenings, classic white backdrops, flower decor; weddings during this season could look like they’re straight out of wonderland. But all this beauty demands that the bride is equally stunning. Here are some bridal makeup trends from FabFit Makeup artists that are catching up with the winter brides.
When you’ve put on your dress and swept your hair into its prettiest style, you’re bound to wonder: what’s the best kind of makeup to complete your look? It can be stressful trying to get everything to go perfectly. But don’t worry, we at FabFit have got you covered! Here are some bridal makeup tips & trends for the perfect winter bride
1. A Frosted Winter Glow for your bridal makeup
Gone are the days for dark contouring and sharp brown angles. Instead, an opalescent, glossy highlighter can give your cheeks and jawline the lift that you want in a more subtle and season-appropriate way. Steer clear of bronzer or glitter, go for a minimal touch of blush, and focus on that shimmery glowing look. You can also use an illuminating finishing powder for this fairy tale bridal makeup.
2. Wispy Eyelashes to unravel the bridal makeup
Eyelashes can pull your entire bridal makeup look together. A perfect look for the winter are wispy and are heavier on the eye’s outer corners. You can use full sets to achieve this look or apply individual lashes – whatever gives you the most romantic look!
3. Dark, Bold Lips with an attitude!
If you want to make a bold statement with your bridal makeup, a deep purple or dark maroon lip can really make a sexy, dramatic impression as you stroll down the aisle. If you prefer more classic bridal look but still want to make heads turn, go for a bold red lip colour and sharp eyeliner.
4. Smoky Eyes
Not a fan of bold lipstick? Go bold and enigmatic with your eye makeup look instead! A smoky eye is a sultry, sexy, and mysterious look that can be undyingly romantic. Just remember to keep the rest of your bridal makeup simple in contrast, and use waterproof mascara and eyeliner!
5. Golden Eyes
Many winter brides stick to darker or more muted looks, but if you’re a fan of glitter looks, use a gold eyeliner and compliment it with similarly coloured eyeshadow! Finish the look with black, wispy eyelashes and you’re all set to go.
6. Full Brows
Many brides make the mistake of getting a little too liberal with the tweezers before their wedding, but full, feathery brows are actually incredibly beautiful winter statements. Use brow gel to keep them in place, enhance them by filling in any gaps with an eyebrow pencil, and show off the brows you were born with!
7. Natural Beauty with minimum bridal makeup
Sometimes, going back to basics is what it’s all about. Go for a natural look with light pink or coral lipstick – or a subtle tinted lip balm – in a pale hue, barely there eye makeup, and a mere touch of blush. The weather is likely to give you naturally rosy cheeks anyway!
8. Coloured mascara
This is a bit of a bold choice, but if you’ve always been one to experiment with your makeup, it could be a great decision! Burgundy, blue, or other uncommon but still dark and subtle shades can add depth to your eyelashes, giving them a dreamy look.
