Top Winter Wedding Beauty Trends 2017

There’s nothing like a winter wedding to melt even the iciest heart. Glistening snow, candlelight and glowing embers in the fireplace create a magical backdrop for a life-altering occasion. So what are the hottest winter wedding beauty trends heating up aisles and alters everywhere this season?

Cold weather, warm lips – A nod to the ultra-glamorous bold lips of days past, present and future, a warm, berry colored or deep red lip is a bold statement that will warm up your audience in no time!

You do you – If you don’t typically wear layers of makeup, don’t try to reinvent the wheel for your wedding day. Stick to a good, natural looking foundation and go for subtle accentuation of your lashes and lips.

Feelin plucky – The over-sculpted, barely-there brow is out and the bold, barely plucked brow is in. If you are not blessed with full lush, a-la-Brooke Shields brows, carefully fill in your brows with a good eyebrow pencil to make your eyes pop and to get the exact shape you want.

Wonderfully wound – Our love of delightfully woven, romantic braids has spilled over into the winter wedding landscape.  Graceful fishtail braids and braided crowns elegantly weaved with pearls, lace and any other accessory you like, are creating beautiful lookd on brides everywhere.

Flower Power – They may not bloom in winter snow but a flower crown lends a bit of magic to a winter wedding look.

 Rapunzel in the house – As if channeling a fairy tale, long, gently tousled curls lightly pulled back or accentuated with a jeweled barrette will have you channeling your inner princess bride!

The up-don’t – If you can’t decide between a classic up do and free-flowing locks, the half-up, half-down look is a great option. You can even incorporate a pretty braid as your method of pulling the half-up part off.
