10 Wedding Makeup Ideas for Winter 10 Wedding Makeup Ideas for Winter 10 Wedding Makeup Ideas for Winter

Whether you’re attending as a guest, standing at the altar supporting your best friend, or walking down the aisle yourself, there’s something to be said about pairing your makeup with the season. When it comes to winter, the last thing you want to do is flaunt ultra-bright eyeshadows and lipsticks, as they will clash with the overall cool tone of the season. To help you find the perfect face makeup, eye makeup, and lip color for your upcoming wedding, below we share 10 winter wedding makeup ideas you can’t go wrong with the cooler months of the year. And, hey, some of them can even transition into spring! Ready to nail your wedding makeup look? The makeup ideas below will be a great place to start!

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #1: Peachy Pout

Warm as it may be, peach is a beautiful color when paired with winter because it offers just enough color to brighten an overall look without seeming out of place. To enhance an otherwise minimal wedding makeup look, consider wearing the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Shining Peach for a high-shine, yet natural-looking approach or the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Peach Fuzz for a luxuriously rich, creamy lip.

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #2: Glossy, Shimmering Lids

You’ve seen glossy lids and you’ve seen shimmering lids, but when paired together, these eye makeup trends can create a winter wedding makeup look like no other. To see for yourself, dust your lids with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Paris Beach and top it off with a coat of clear lip gloss. Pretty, right?

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #3: Barely There Blush

Winter’s cooler temps make for beautifully flushed skin, but it also makes for an indoor wedding. To mimic the seasonal look, skip the bronzer and opt for a barely there blush, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush, to accentuate your bone structure and make the apples of your cheeks pop.

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #4: Big, Beautiful Brows

Bold brows established their popularity (and necessity) in 2017 and there’s no sign of the eye-framing makeup look going anywhere. To rock the feathery, defined arch trend, it’s time to rethink your eyebrow makeup game. Instead of relying on a regular old eyebrow pencil, stock up on the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Mechanical Pencil, L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara, and L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Raiser Highlighter Duo. Together these products can help sculpt, define, and highlight your arches into snap-worthy beauties.

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #5: Pearly Inner Eyes

The early ‘00s saw a surge in ultra-lit inner lids. Like most beauty trends, these pearly inner eye circles are back to slay the eye makeup game. To get the look, you can use the Paris Beach eye shadow from above or take a brighter shimmering approach with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette.

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #6: Tightlined Lids

Eyeliner on your wedding day may seem too dramatic for your otherwise natural look. No worries, with the help of a skilled tightlining approach, you’ll be able to both define your eyes against your face and the wintry background, while staying true to a natural-looking thick set of lashes. To get the look, use a pencil eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Eyeliner in Black to trace between your lashes as close to your eye as possible to create definition without drawing a super-noticeable line along your lash line.

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #7: Snowy Glow

Highlighter has never been more popular. Where it was once made to stand out against your skin, nowadays it’s about applying it so perfectly that it looks like you’re being hit by light at all the right angles every second of the day. One of the easiest ways to achieve the glowing look is with a few dabs of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops. The liquid formula easily blends into skin for a picture-perfect highlight, as opposed to a noticeable swipe of makeup.

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #8: Bold Burgundy Lips

If you want to rock a bold lip on your wedding day without clashing with the season, steer clear of a classic red lip and opt for burgundy. What’s more, take a matte approach for a more winter-friendly pout using the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Doesn’t Matte-r. Pucker up buttercup, you look beautiful!

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #9: Neutral Smoky Eye

As dark and gloomy as the winter may feel, weddings are never the time to rock a dark eye makeup look. Instead, try adding dimension to your lids with some well place neutral eye shadow. To get the look, play around with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette in Boudoir Charm to layer your lids with a medium color before filling your crease with a darker hue and lining your inner lids with a touch of the lightest eye shadow color. Whatever you choose, just be sure to blend thoroughly to achieve your most natural-looking eye makeup look. And hide dark circles under eyes with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, which is available in 14 shades to match every skin tone and undertone.

Winter Wedding Makeup Idea #10: Dewy Base

Last but not least, no matter which eye makeup or lip color you choose, you can never go wrong with a dewy base. Since winter is known for its drying effect on skin, rocking a hydrated, plump-looking complexion to a wedding can truly be your best accessory. To get the look, use a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, to stipple a dewy foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation, onto your skin. For extra dewy results, squeeze some of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer onto your makeup blender and stipple it onto your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose. Don’t be surprised if you find this to be your new go-to look.
