Makeup Tips for a Winter Wedding

Hi Bellas,

When it comes to wedding makeup, there are certain tips and tricks you can use to make sure your bridal look is on point for the big day. If you’re looking for some tips and advice on how to apply makeup for a winter wedding, look no further. Here’s a list of makeup ideas and advice from our team that will make sure your Winter bridal makeup looks perfect!

Choose Long-Lasting Products
The last thing you want is to have your makeup start to fade or smudge after an hour or two on the dance floor. To avoid this, it’s important to choose long-lasting products that won't need frequent touch ups throughout the night. Look for products with staying power such as waterproof eyeliners and mascaras, transfer proof lipsticks, and long-wear foundations. It’s also important to ensure that all products are well blended so that they don’t separate or flake off during the night.

Go Bold!
When it comes to Winter weddings, a great option is to go bold! This is especially true in the winter months when many people opt for darker colors like burgundy, navy, or black. A bold eye look helps create drama and adds depth to your overall look. Plus, darker colors will help draw attention away from any redness in your skin due to cold weather conditions outside. If a dark eye isn't your style, you can instead go for a lighter shimmer eye and vampy lip combo. Reds and burgundies are classic options for lips.

Choose Hydrating Products
The cold winter air can be drying on skin so it's important to choose hydrating products whenever possible. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid which will help keep skin hydrated throughout the night without feeling greasy or heavy. Additionally, you may want to consider adding an extra layer of protection against dryness with a lightweight but hydrating facial mist that can be applied before applying foundation as well as throughout the night if needed.

Achieving flawless makeup at a winter wedding doesn't have to be difficult; it just takes some planning ahead and knowing what kind of products work best in colder temperatures! By following these tips from your experts at IMA, you'll be able to apply your bridal makeup with confidence knowing that it will stay put all night long - no matter how much dancing and celebrating you do! Good luck!
