A winter bride, especially when there is a light snowfall, can be beautifully romantic and very fairy tale-esque. There is something elegant and magical about having a wedding amidst the natural beauty of an all-white winter with the decadence of fallen snow as a backdrop. To become this celestial winter bride, sparkle less, shimmer more and turn your winter makeup into a winter wonderland.
What’s not so fabulous is dreary and harsh winter light that can make any bride look less stunning in their pictures. Winter wedding makeup should be different from the make-up you would normally wear. To pull off that classic radiant winter makeup look it is important you have it professionally done.

My Darien, CT bride wanted classic makeup on her wedding day.
First, start with a luminous foundation like L’OREAL Paris Lumi True Match to give you a subtle healthy glow. You can also mix a small amount of Benefit cosmetics High Beam into your foundation to achieve a dewy radiant glow. On the eyes select, shimmers of white, silvers, and pink, for the lids only. On the lips, glossy nudes and poinsettia reds are classic winter wedding looks. Smashbox cosmetics have the best show stopping, high shine lip gloss, called Reflection High Shine. When selecting a blush color, I prefer Stila cosmeticsCustom Color blush in a soft shade pink (nothing too rosy) that will make your cheeks look flushed. Their Custom Color blush reacts with your skins pH to create your customized shade that’s perfect only for you. Bronzer is always a girl best friend but it should look effortless. Stila Cosmetics Custom Color blush in Bronze is perfect for all skin tone. To finish the look, select a full flirty mink style lashes, I’m obsessed with Urban Decay Black Velvet lashes. They will play up the romantic winter bridal makeup look. Be sure to nourish and moisturize your lips daily with lip conditioner weeks before your wedding day. Sara Happ One Luxe Balm Lip Slip is the best item for the lips, I’m sure your hubby would agree.

A beautiful day at the winter bridal photo shoot with New Orleans Bride Magazine. It’s always nice to get requested for any assignment in New Orleans to do makeup since I am not living there full time. And getting to work with Lisa, Theresa, and Erin is always a highlight. I actually enjoyed working with an all female staff on set. There were 6 dress changes and a cover shot. So I changed up the model look a few times using different lip and blush colors. I wanted to keep each makeup look soft, fresh, and perfect for any day bride. Can’t wait to see the finish product.
