The best part about winter? The holiday cheer. The worst part? The dreary light that makes dark circles look darker and puffy eyes look puffier. Create a glow by using a little under-eye highlighter and having a hint of shimmer in your eye makeup. And don’t forget to set your concealer under your eyes. You can go an extra step by using a yellow or banana setting powder to get an even brighter look!
If your wedding falls in the middle of the holiday season, consider making your lips appear glossier and add a touch of sparkle and shimmer to your makeup. Just don’t use shimmer on more than one part of your face: Do your lips or your eyes, not both. Winter is also a great time to go dark with your lip color. Have fun and explore all those deep wine hues!
Concentrate on warm, glowing hues. If you tend to look pale in winter, invest in a self-tanner and check that your foundation is still a proper match with your skin tone. To make sure your skin doesn’t dry out from the cold, add moisturizing oils to your skin care routine. Use a petroleum jelly product on your nails, heels, and elbows. Drink lots of water. I cannot stress how much your water intake will make a huge difference on your skin. The end result? A radiant, lit-from-within look.
