Hey there, winter brides! We can all agree that winter weddings hold a magical charm all their own, but let’s be real - the cold temps can throw a serious curveball at your beauty game. No worries, though! We’ve got some tips to keep you glowing on your big day.
Nourish Your Skin
First things first, winter air and skin dryness go hand in hand. Start your beauty routine by keeping things simple – a rich moisturizer will be your biggest ally in combating the winter dryness. Treat yourself to hydrating masks in the days leading up to your wedding – a little extra love goes a long way, and after all, your skin deserves a spa day too!
Windproof Your Look
If your heart is set on an outdoor ceremony, consider the winter wind as your invisible guest. Protect your face with a reliable, hydrating sunscreen and opt for a foundation that can withstand the elements. These practical choices will ensure that you look flawless and let you enjoy your day without constant touch-ups. Practical and pretty – that's the goal.
Makeup That Lasts
Winter weddings mean extra hours of celebration and your makeup should be the LAST thing on your mind. This means that you need makeup that can party as hard as you do! Invest in long-wearing foundation, setting sprays, and waterproof mascara to keep your makeup looking picture perfect from the ceremony to the last dance.
Berry Tones are Your BFF
There's something undeniably enchanting about a bold lip in winter - it’s like an exclamation point to your look! You can’t go wrong with beautiful berry tones like reds, burgundies, or plums. These deep and sophisticated colors will add just the right pop to enhance your bridal beauty.
Don’t Fear the Flyaways
Winter weather might bring a bit of static, but fear not. Here are a few things you can do to keep those flyaways in check. Beat the dryness by using a humidifier in your getting-ready space, keep a travel-sized bottle of hair serum or static-reducing spray in your bridal emergency kit to smooth any rebellious strands, and neutralize static-generating accessories like veils and hair pieces by rubbing them with a dryer sheet. Just like that, you’ve kicked the cling!
Glow from Within
Real Talk: a healthy bride is a happy bride! Maintain your natural glow by taking care of yourself. Stay hydrated, get enough sleep, and include antioxidant-rich foods in your diet. Your genuine radiance will outshine any makeup routine.
Accessories for the (Winter) Win
Now that we’ve covered all things skin, makeup, hair, and health - let’s talk about accessories to keep you shining, not shivering! It is no surprise to anyone that the winter weather can be a wild card. Wrap up in a faux fur shawl - it’s like a cozy hug against the winter chill. Opt for delicate lace or satin gloves to keep those fingers toasty without sacrificing style. Lastly, ditch the traditional heels and rock a pair of cute boots or booties. Winter, meet your match!
So, winter bride-to-be, as you navigate the frosty road to "I do," remember that whatever the weather, you’ve now got all the tips and tricks you need for a fuss-free winter wedding filled with unforgettable moments. Cheers!
