A winter bride can be very fairy-tale and very romantic, especially when there is a light snowfall. But what’s not so fabulously is dreary and harsh winter light that can make any bride look less stunning in her pictures. On this day, your best beauty item will be a bronzer; a bronzing gel, a tinted gel, or a self tanning mist to achieve a natural summer glow on your skin. The L’OREAL Sublime Bronze line offer salon like self tanner, great to do especially if your going to wear a strapless dress. You want to make sure your foundation now matches your tan skin if you opt to do your own makeup.
When you are having a consultation with your makeup artist share with them that you would like to do more warm and glowing hues instead of dark and smokey. Select a full coverage foundation like L’OREAL Paris True Match Roller Foundation to help achieve a flawless pale skin. To compliment your bronzed skin select peach, coral, pink or a matte bronzer for the cheeks. If you decide to go with a red or a nude lip be sure to give them a high gloss.
Don’t forget to take care of the grooms favorite part-the lips. Be sure to nourish and moisturize them daily with lip conditioner weeks before your wedding day. My favorites are the lightweight L’OREAL Bare Naturale Gentle Lip Conditioner because it has minerals, conditioning Sweet Almond Oil and a soothing Vitamin E. I also love OCC’s Ultra-sheer Lip Balms, their deeply pigmented and moisturizing.
To be a radiant winter bride, sparkle less, shimmer more and turn your winter wedding into a winter wonderland.
