Bridal makeup is all about enhancing your natural beauty, however, this doesn't mean you can't have fun with your bridal look no matter what time of year you are planning on getting married.
Pastel tones look lovely during spring weddings to coincide with the brighter days and blossoming trees. Choose rosy or sugar pink lips and cheeks, paired with washes of sheer mint green, peach and lilac eye shadow. For a dewy complexion, choose a highlighter with a soft pink undertone and go for gloss or cream finish lip products instead of matte for an added glow. White or nude eyeliner on the lower waterline will also brighten eyes and if you want a smoky eye use brown eyeliner instead of harsh black.
Summer is the perfect time of year to show off bronzed and glowing skin. Use coral, peach and rose gold tones on the eyes and lips for added glow and warmth. Avoid heavily contoured cheeks by gently applying bronzing power to the temples, cheeks, jaw line, and blend out to achieve a natural sun-kissed effect. For an extra glow, use a complexion booster or liquid illuminator with gold undertones to reflect light on the high points of the face for youthful, glowing skin.
The time of year for warm colours and matte finishes is autumn. Stay on-trend with copper tones, smoky plums, brick reds and deep greens. Don’t be afraid to add drama with smoky eyes and winged eyeliner. If you are going for heavy eyes, keep the lips nude with a clear shimmer gloss. Choose a highlighter with a slightly gold undertone to warm the complexion. Add loose gold shimmer to your eyes in the evening, this will not only change your bridal look from ceremony to evening, but the gold will reflect the amber tones of the season.
Finally, winter is the season to have some fun with your bridal make-up look, from red wine lip colours to sparkly eyes. Shimmering metallic eye shadow is a great way to add iridescence and depth. Don’t be afraid to add drama to your eye make-up, winter is the best time of year to get away with heavy smoky eyes and glitter topped shadow.
