Winter is one of the most beautiful times of the year, so it is no surprise that a Winter
wedding can be truly magical and the epitome of romance. Achieving the perfect bridal look
isn’t easy and can often be the one of the most stressful aspects of wedding planning
particularly when having to pick the perfect makeup and hairstyle to match your winter
wonderland wedding. This guide is here to do some of the work for you, giving you some
inspiration for festive hair and makeup to make your wedding planning that little bit easier!
When it comes to your bridal hair and makeup for a winter wedding, it is important to find
the perfect balance between your style and taste that encompasses your overall winter
wedding colour theme and stylish décor. It is important to remember that your hair and
makeup must complement each other and your overall theme as appose to clashing with it
and fighting for attention.

Loose curls pinned to the side

This is a stunning hairstyle of class and elegance that is super easy to achieve. Pin curl your
hair and swipe to the side using an accessory piece. To transform into a hairstyle fit for a
snow princess, use a silver crystal beaded hair clip. This will add some winter glam to the
hairstyle. Another great way to achieve an effortless look is by loosely curling your hair and
letting them hang down your back. Take two curled strands of hair from either side at the
front and clip them at the back so they meet in the middle using small bobby pins. Decorate
with a pearl beaded clip to give the illusion of sparkling snow ad luxurious glamour. This look
is perfect for those with long hair.

As this hairstyle is subtle and elegant, your makeup can be the star of the show. Depending
on you colour theme, you may opt for an eye look that incorporates this or that
compliments it. Warm tones of berry red and burgundy are perfect for adding that extra
wintry romance and can be achieved in your makeup look with a lip. If a dramatic eye isn’t
for you then a dark lip is the perfect alternative and the best way to make a seasonal
statement. Although a dark red lip is the most popular when it comes to a festive makeup
look, why not try a deep plum for a beautiful fall look. Not only will this look perfect with
your hair, but it will also compliment your white gown beautifully.

Winter Nest

The high bun is one of the most popular of bridal hairstyles. Embellish your bun by
surrounding it with assorted sized crystals to create a snow-queen headpiece that your
guests will not be able to take their eyes off.

As this is a bold hair style, wear with a soft makeup look to compliment the crystals. You can
achieve a soft makeup look by blending a neutral eye shadow into the crease. Smudge a light
brown shadow along the top waterline and blend upwards. Next, apply a brown eyeliner to
the waterline. This is less harsh than a black liner but will still give the same effect. The
brown will also make the colour of your eyes pop. Using the same brown shadow you used
on your lid, blend underneath your waterline. Apply a black mascara to complete this soft
eye look. When it comes to the face, avoid using blusher as this may clash with the bold
headpiece. Instead, use a bronze to contour the cheeks and a soft, champagne highlighter
on the cheek bones. Line your lips using a nude liner and apply a nude, light pink or clear

Side Braids

This is the perfect hairstyle for those who want to keep their hair out of their face as well as
looking super cute and stylish. Curl and pin the end of your braids to the back using a clip. Of
course, you can use any kind of clip it is completely your choice however to keep with the
winter theme, it might be a good idea to stick with a white or silver clip. A white flower is a
good idea and will look beautiful with your pretty braids.

You can go bold with your makeup as your embellish piece is at the back of your head. Why
not incorporate some face glitter into your look to create the ultimate festive eye? If you
want a sparkly makeup look, then try a smokey eye using a blend of black and brown
shadows, then apply a touch of glitter to the inner corner to add a pop of winter sparkle.
This will also elongate the eye shape and contour the middle of your face. If you want
something less subtle, then create a cut crease using a thick concealer and apply some loose
glitter to the lid using a flat brush. For a super winter look, use a mixture of silver and white
glitter. To make sure your glitter lasts all day, apply glitter glue prior to your glitter

Half Up/Half Down with Glitter

Prior to styling your hair, it is always a good tip to have it professionally blow-dried as this
gives the hair more volume that is likely to last all day. To achieve this look, gather your hair
at the crown of your head and secure with pins. For extra drama, sprinkle some loose white
or silver glitter through the hair for a winter princess look. This will compliment your
winter décor of soft twinkly fairy lights and flickering candles for that perfect winter wedding.
