When it comes to choosing the time of year we get married, the season usually has a very sentimental connection to the bride and groom. Whether you’ve always dreamed of a snowy winter wedding or a breezy summer ceremony, you’ve put a lot of thought into the atmosphere. Just like every bride, each season has its own charm and distinct look. That’s why no matter the season, we’ve got wedding makeup tips for you.
With gorgeous warm weather, lots of vacation time and Mother Nature in her full glory as a backdrop, it’s no mystery why summer is the most popular time of year for weddings. But it comes with its own set of challenges, especially in the beauty department. Heat, sun, sweat and humidity can wreak havoc on your hair and makeup.
Look for oil-free, waterproof products with SPF when selecting make-up and moisturizer. Carry blotting papers with you for quick fixes, and look for sweat-proof, humidity-fighting hair products. Go to your favourite salon and have a professional give you a hair and bridal makeup trial using bright colours to match the vibrancy of the season such as aqua, tangerine or fuchsia.
After a long, cold winter, who doesn’t rejoice in the romance of fresh spring flowers and newly budding trees? What a lovely time of year to tie the knot. Shake of the harshness of winter (and the dry, damaged skin it can leave behind) by spending some time at the spa. Scrub off your winter layer with pumice and exfoliants. Pamper yourself with moisture-rich products like body butter and fresh spring scents like lavender or lily.
Top off your bridal makeup look with glowing shades that compliment your skin tone. Rosy beige, coral and lilac are all great colours for the season. You will be radiant.
Autumn is picking up momentum as a popular time of year to wed and it’s no surprise. With the searing heat of summer over and the gorgeous reds and golds in the trees, it can be a truly beautiful time to get hitched. So how can you make the most of this season?
Autumn is a great time to go smoky and sultry with your bridal makeup. Now’s the time to experiment with deeper shades of blush and lipstick. Deep plum, turquoise and brown can all compliment the season. Try greys and silvers for a dramatic, smoky eye complete with extra eyeliner.
Why not celebrate when the air is cool, the ground is white and everything seems a little bit magical? It can seem irresistible to get married near the holidays when some of the best memories are made. But of course winter has its own unique pitfalls when it comes to hair, skincare, wedding makeup.
The remedy? It’s all about moisturizer, bronzer and self-tanner. Give yourself a glow to combat the stark paleness of winter, by using tinted moisturizer. Avoid particularly bright or dark coloured makeup. Instead opt for more natural tones that bring out your inner-radiance.
