3 Holiday makeup wedding looks

Whether you’re the lucky bride or a guest of a winter wedding, these three holiday makeup tips will have you shining during the ceremony and all throughout the reception. After all, it is the holidays so a little sparkle is a must!

Natural & dewy

If your attire and event call for a subtle makeup look, highlighting your best features is the simple way to go. Start off by mixing tinted moisturizer and foundation for a natural glow. Highlight brow bones with a soft peach color like LORAC eyeshadow in Moonstone. Brush eyelids with a shimmery, light eyeshadow of your choice and add some white eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes — try Sephora eyeshadow in Aspen Summit. To bring out your eyes, add some black or brown eyeliner and a coat of mascara. Finish off by brushing on Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze, and swipe on some berry lipgloss for a refreshed, dewy look.

Bold & sultry

Going for more of a statement look? Start by using matte powder or whipped foundation. After, swipe eyeshadow primer onto your lids like Urban Decay’s Primer Potion to ensure your eyeshadow stays on all night. If you want to go for a smoky eye, then MAC eyeshadow in Bronze will give your eyes a smoky look without being too heavy. Dust eyeshadow on top and bottom lids, and then line bottom inner lid with black eyeliner. Add two coats of mascara for full, thick lashes. For cheeks, you can add some light bronzer or subtle blush like NARS blush in Orgasm. Because your eyes are smoky, going for a nude gloss is ideal. If your eyes are only slightly smoky or you’re wearing no eyeliner, then try a burgundy red lipstick like Makeup Forever’s Rouge Artist Intense lipstick in shade 44.

Colorful & playful

If you want to have extra fun with your makeup look, opt for bright colors. Use liquid foundation and blend evenly. For your eyes, blend MAC eyeshadow in Aquadisiac on top eyelids and swipe Rimmel London Eye Glistener in Stand Out underneath your eyes. The teal and sparkly green will make your eyes pop. Make your eyelashes stand out with Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. Then dust a subtle brush of peachy pink onto cheeks for some color. Finish your playful look with Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in Berry Rose.
