Going to be a winter bride? Make sure you look your best with these seasonal beauty tips.

Your Eyes

The best part about winter? The holiday cheer. The worst part? The dreary light that makes dark circles look darker and puffy eyes look puffier. Create a glow by using a little under-eye highlighter and having a hint of shimmer in your eye makeup.

Your Lips

If your wedding falls in the middle of the holiday season, consider making your lips appear glossier and add a touch of sparkle and shimmer to your makeup. Just don’t use shimmer on more than one part of your face: Do your lips or your eyes, not both.

Your Skin

Concentrate on warm, glowing hues. If you tend to look pale in winter, invest in a self-tanner and check that your foundation is still a proper match with your skin tone. To make sure your skin doesn’t dry out from the cold, add moisturizing oils to your bath; use a petroleum jelly product on your nails, heels, and elbows; and drink lots of water. The end result? A radiant, lit-from-within look.
