A sparkling winter wedding is the perfect backdrop for a bride’s special day. You will look like a fairytale princess with winter wedding makeup ideas that are simple to apply. For the best look start with a flawless foundation that will last throughout your march, photographs and reception. Play up your eyes with clean, dramatic lines. Finish off your winter wedding look with cheek and face colors will warm you up beautifully.
Full Coverage Makeup
Don’t let the title fool you; full coverage does not have to be cake-like or thick makeup. In the makeup world, many good brands will give you good coverage without making you feel as if you are smothering. The following three makeup suggestions work in tandem for a perfectly smooth winter makeup look.
• Yellow Concealer: Yellow concealer is the perfect cover up for most skin shades. However, if your skin is very light or very dark you will need to use a concealer color that matches your skin’s tone. Dab on yellow concealer to freshly moisturized skin. Do not worry about blending it in, just focus on covering brown or red spots.
• Crème to Powder Foundation: Starting at your forehead and working downward rub on your crème to powder foundation using a cosmetic sponge. Pay close attention to your neck and jawline. Blend your makeup down your neck.
• Mineral Powder Foundation: Mineral powder makes a nice finishing touch for your makeup. Sweep on the makeup starting at the forehead and working down. Never work upwards you will deepen any wrinkles you may have instead of hiding them. Use a wide kabuki brush to get the soft winter foundation you want.
Dramatic Eye Design
Okay beautiful bride, you know want everyone talking about your dress not your poor makeup choices. Leave the bad eye drama behind on your special day and use classic dramatic lines to make a beautiful lasting impression. Follow these steps for making your eyes gorgeous.
Dampen the eye area with eye primer. Liquid primer will hold your makeup in place and make the colors more vivid. Allow the primer to dry for a full minute before proceeding.
Sweep on sand or vanilla shade to your entire eyelid if you have ivory skin. Apply some sheer pink to eyes that have a natural rosy skin hue. Go a sheer taupe to brown eye skin. Use eyeshadows that have a very slight shimmery. You want your eyes to look like they were sprinkled with fairy dust but you do not want to look cheap. Too much of a good thing can be, well, too much!
Draw on liquid eyeliner to the top of the lashes. Start at the inside and work outwards. Extend the eyeliner slightly past the actual edge of the eye. Give the end a little classic Audrey Hepburn by lifting up the ends slightly. As a tip, use waterproof eyeliner.
Apply false eyelashes to the top lashes of your eyes. Tap on very black mascara to the bottom of the lashes.
Rosy Cheeks and Berry Lips
Use winterberry lip shades on your lips and line your lips before you apply your makeup. Do not go too dark and heavy on the lips but don’t be afraid of using color in your winter wedding makeup application.
Sweep on a lightest rosy red to the apples of your cheeks. Brush on a golden bronzer to the areas of the face where you naturally receive sun like your forehead, chin and cheeks.
Spend some time before the wedding day learning how to apply the makeup. Use the makeup in advance to insure you will not experience embarrassing makeup allergies on your wedding day. If you want to pamper yourself hire a makeup artist for your wedding. Play it safe and let her practice on your face before the wedding day.
