How to create a winter-inspired look

How to create a winter look Q – We’re having a winter wedding, and I’d love to incorporate the time of year into my hair and make-up. Do you have any suggestions?

"If you’re having a winter wedding, here are some things you need to take into account with regards to your hair and make-up.

"Fresh flowers can be the perfect finish to your hairstyle, but you’ll need to make sure the blooms you choose can withstand the colder temperatures.

"Snowdrops or hardy greens such as ivy will help create a festive look. Add some sparkle with a tiara or decorative hairpiece.

"Be aware that your hair will become dry and look a little dull this time of year. To help it look glossy, I would deep condition it with a hair mask. I always offer my brides a treatment that adds shine and volume up to three months before the big day.

"With the potential for rain, sleet and snow, I advise my brides to choose a structured up do that will last throughout the day, regardless of the weather.

"Remember to drink plenty of water in the months leading up to your wedding to ensure your skin is thoroughly hydrated. Mild exfoliation once a week will get rid of any dry, dead skin cells, while a rich moisturiser will keep it soft and smooth.

"Use a soft, subtle blusher on the cheeks rather than a hue you would use in the summer months. This will ensure you’re not adding colour to potentially already flushed cheeks. You can also choose a full coverage foundation to avoid this problem.

"Adding a pop of colour to the lip is a real statement that looks lovely this time of year."
