Winter is coming in DC, and it’s also time for winter weddings. Winter bridal makeup is not your usual wedding makeup. It usually takes skills of a professional Makeup Artist for Weddings in Washington, DC to make sure you won’t end up too pale or too red on a snowy season. However, if you are planning to do your own makeup, keep the following expert makeup tips in mind:
For Healthy Face Texture
Because of the extreme weather conditions of winter, your face can look darker or duller because of dryness. This calls for applying the right foundation for a flawless and patch less look. Finish it off with translucent powder. Do not forget to moisturize your skin before applying foundation.
For Just the Right Blush
Go for rosy shades leaning towards crimson. Reds and pinks will not be as flattering for it can make you appear frosty. You would need to blend it well and put a touch of translucent powder so as to keep away from dryness. Having a healthy rosy blush will add just the right amount of warmth on your look.
Beautiful Bridal Eyes
Make sure you put a base using a foundation and a concealer to make the eye shadow adhere. Use a gel liner or a liquid one on the eyes. You can choose to apply thin or moderate lining on the top lash line then use a milky liner on the water line to achieve a wintry feel on your eyes.
Eye Shadow Color
You can never go wrong in choosing some sweet pink or peach shades on the lids, you can apply each individually or use them together. Use softer pink shades on the center of the lids and then apply a darker pink on the lids towards the creases. To open or brighten the eyes, use a dollop of silver or ivory on to the junction of the nose then a hint of bronze on the crease.
Extra Tip: Since cold weather can dry and chap your lips, do these easy steps:
- Moisturize using a heavy moisturizer making sure it stays on for 10 minutes before blotting it off.
