If it wasn't for my husbands work schedule, I would definitely have got married in winter - I love the thought of a really crisp winters day, a nice fur bolero and some nice glam crystal touches in the day. I know my wedding day has been and gone but I did my make up earlier and thought it would look lovely as a winter bridal look, you don't want to look washed out or too made up for the day.
I decided to create a winter wedding look here:
I went for a natural contour, netural metallic eyes with a touch of liner and some white to highlight the inner corners of my eye. I have lash extensions on at the moment but I think false lashes are a must for wedding make up as they look great in photos (remember, those photos will be around for a LONG time) - I'd probably use quite a fluffy style like Ardell Demi Wispies. Rather than using gold highlighters, I used ones with a pinky tone as I feel like that works a bit better in harsh winter light and looks a little bit softer. I've also finished off with a pink lip as I think it works better than a nude one in winter.
Here's a little out-take of me mid-contouring (I used normal Rimmel Concealer and Illamasqua Gel Sculpt) too ha ha:
- TooFaced Born This Way Foundation
- Rimmel Concealer
- Illamasqua Gel Sculpt
- Sleek Face Form Contour and Blush Palette
- Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow
- Topshop Smokey Eye Palettes
- MAC Penultimate Eye Liner
- Rimmel Scandalyse Mascara
- MAC Chatterbox Lipstick (blotted to mute)
I think this type of winter wedding look is really easy to recreate and would look gorgeous with a statement hairpiece/tiara, something crystal and ice-like maybe. I love these beautiful hairpieces from Rosie Willett Designs:
Rosie Willett Designs - Zara 1 - £388
Rosie Willett Designs - Amaris - £195
I spotted a bridal make up tutorial on her website too from Carley Musleh from Beauty Sauce which is fab.
