Winter weddings are always a risk, weather wise. You never know when a snowstorm or a blizzard might hit.
It’s not all bad, though. The cool temperature and no sweat can save your makeup from melting or making your face look slick and oily. Plus, winters are a lot kinder to your wallet since winters are considered the off-season for weddings.
However, that still doesn’t mean that your makeup can last the entire day without falling apart even slightly even in the winter season. Your hair, especially, can get dry and retain static electricity that can severely affect your hairstyle. With a few pro tips, you can learn how to make your hair and makeup last if your wedding is planned for the winter season this year.

Focus on your skincare
The dry weather in winters can take a toll on your skin. For women who naturally have dry skin types, winter can be especially bad. Moisturize your skin regularly months before your wedding. As the winter time approaches, switch to thicker and gooey moisturizers since your summertime lotions might not have the same effect on your skin in the dry, winter season. You should also try to avoid sitting near heaters or fireplaces that can make your skin crack and dry.
Again, as the dry season approaches, you should be extra careful that your entire body is fully hydrated. This means that you should increase your daily water and fruit intake to fight against the dryness.
Use waterproof products
It doesn’t matter if it’s a winter wedding or a summer wedding, if you’re a bride-to-be you should try and stock up on makeup products that are waterproof. Waterproof products will help your makeup last longer than other non-waterproof ones. In the winters, especially, where an unexpected snowstorm or hail can damage your look, waterproof makeup products can go a long way.
Consult and book a professional makeup artist to make the most of your winter wedding. These experts can truly help make your wedding makeup last even in the stormy days of December.
