So, grab a cup of hot cocoa, cosy up by the fire, and let’s dive into some makeup tips that will make you the belle of the winter ball!
Hydration Is a Must

Winter weddings are all about that ethereal glow. Opt for a highlighter that gives a frosty, fresh feel. Dab a bit on your cheekbones, down your nose, and on your cupid’s bow for a radiant finish that says, “I woke up like this” Look that’s Gram-worthy.

Bold Lips Are the Trend
Don’t shy away from bold lip colours. Winter is the perfect time to rock those deep reds, plums, or even a daring berry shade. Not only will your lips make a statement, but they’ll also add a pop of warmth to your overall look.
