Must-Have Winter Wedding Makeup Looks

By Britt Cunningham

There is something so captivatingly dramatic about a winter wedding. While many brides eschew the colder months in favour of balmier festivities, winter makes for an equally stunning celebration. Drawing inspiration from the clean, dramatic colours which burst through in winter, we’ve put together the ultimate list of Winter Wedding Makeup Inspiration.

When deciding on your ultimate Winter Wedding makeup look, consider a few factors. Do you want to look understated to allow your true beauty to shine through, or glamorous to mark the big occasion? How will your makeup tie in with the rest of your bridal ensemble? Consider the style of your dress, headpiece if you’ve opted for one, and jewelry. Is your bouquet bold and bright, or subtle and soft? And how will your makeup reflect the overall tone and feel of the wedding?

Whatever you decide, ensure your look reflects who you are and makes you feel incredible! Our Beautifinda Professionals are on hand to help you achieve the winter makeup look of your dreams. Read on for stunning wedding inspiration to take to your beauty appointment.

Snow-White Neutrals

Keep things light with snow-inspired neutrals. This fresh, minimal look allows your natural beauty to shine through. Nude or soft pink lips, complemented by glowing, dewy skin will create an understated, classic wedding look. Beautifinda Professional Cass Jory recommends preparing your skin to its optimum to achieve a luminescent result. Ramp things up a bit with dramatic eyes- you will have completely mesmerizing bridal portraits!

Ruby Rose Red


Turn up the vintage glamour with bright red lips. As a winter bride, consider edging towards deeper, crimson-based shades. These classic tones are perfect for more formal ceremonies and will tie in beautifully if you have a bouquet with ruby and white flowers, or heavy green folliage.

Shimmering Silver


Be inspired by the morning mists and introduce silver eye makeup into your big day look. Blend heavier greys into glittering silvers for a dynamic and flexible look. Sensational silver will make coloured eyes pop!

Pretty In Pink


Soften your look with pretty pastels. While seemingly a more summer shade, pastel pink will work perfectly with the elegant white bouquets that flourish in winter. Work with your BeautiFinda Professional to discover the perfect pink shade for your skin tone.

Glorious Gold


Bring some warmth to the brisk winter days with gold-hued makeup. This classic tone will work with a range of skin tones, and can vary from subtle gold eye makeup to an overall bronzed look. Balance this with a warm soft pink pout or bold crimson lip for a dramatic flair.
