Having a Christmas wedding is a lovely thing. Everyone is full of spirit, the weather is cold, but crisp and it’s party season. Adding a wedding into the mix is just the icing on the (Christmas) cake.
While you may be holding your nuptials around the Christmas period, you may not want to have a Christmas ‘themed’ wedding. If you want to sway away from a ‘Christmas’ wedding, you can still incorporate the joys of the season into your wedding makeup look without making it too obvious.
Remember, you don’t have to do it all. Just a gentle nod to the season can be enough – and will make your look pop with all the joys of the time of year.
#1 Beautiful berry lip
Finish your overall look with a primed and lined berry colour, like this one from Charlotte Tilbury. The smooth matte formula in ‘Festival Magic’ hydrates your lips while providing strong colour to stand out on your big day.
#2 Just add glitter
We’re not talking school disco vibes, but you can’t deny that glitter is inherently Christmassy! You can incorporate glitter into your bridal makeup look by adding some fine flakes to your eyes to bring glamour and sparkle. Try Eyetallics from Trinny London for maximum payoff. Alternatively, use a high-shimmer highlighter, like the Diamond Light Highlighter from Too Faced for a pure high-shine radiance that works on any skin tone.
#3 Clean, cool base with a healthy glow
You don’t always have to use colour to portray the season in a subtle way. Why not reflect the cold and crisp weather with a flawless, clean base, set off with a beautiful rosy glow, as if you’ve just stepped in from the outside? Pairing Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Foundation with some subtle Cloud Paint from Glossier will achieve this effect.
Never heard of this new trend? It’s up and coming, and one that Christmas brides will love – a way to make your eyes look bigger and brighter. Replacing strong pigments, eye-lighting “eyelighter calls upon gentler washes of iridescent shades to achieve the same eye-opening effects”. Create an ethereal effect for a stunning, winter-friendly statement look!
