I love a winter wedding. Twinkling fairy lights, and cosy fireplaces, fur capes teamed with delicate dresses and gorgeous wedding bouquets full of winter blooms. And for a winter bride, it’s a wonderful opportunity to create a unique, beautiful look.

Here are our 5 tips for beautiful winter wedding makeup.

1. Work with the light

PREP:

1. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep! No matter how good your makeup artist is, they won’t be able to get rid of bags under your eyes. 

2. If you plan on having a spray tan for your wedding day, trial that a day or two before your trial too. The tone of your skin will impact the colours your artist will use on your eyes, lips and cheeks. 

3. Wear white! Just as your skin tone effects the way colour sits with your hair and eyes, as does the colour you are wearing. You will get a much more accurate idea of what your makeup will look like on the actual day if you wear the same colour as your dress to the trial.
