Best beauty products for autumn / winter weddings
08 Oct 2020
We've got the top beauty products for eyes, face, lips and skin ideal for autumn / winter weddings
As many 2020 summer weddings were pushed back to autumn and winter due to coronavirus, not only do we have to re-think our outfit choices to celebrations we will be attending but also our make-up look as well.
The change in season not only means a change in colour tones but also the harsh weather can start to play havoc for our skin.
Whether a bride or a guest, we've got 12 beauty products available right now to ensure you are looking your best for the big day.
Independant UK beauty brand, NICMAC, produces sustainable, vegan and cruelty-free make-up specialising in custom made refillable palettes, vibrant eyeshadows and make-up brushes.
Owner and founder of NICMAC beauty, Nicola, says: "For an autumn winter look for weddings this season, choose warm autumnal tones such as our Aniseed, Nougat, Cola Bottle and Mocha Cream shades. You can even create your own autumn / winter palette with our Nic & Mix customisable palette."

Savvy Minerals by Young Living
Shadow Essentials Eyeshadow Palette from Savvy Minerals by Young Living include matte, shimmer and satin shadows for the perfect autumn eye look in one.
Formulated without talc and made with cruelty-free ingredients, the shadows are longwearing and buildable whether you are looking for a subtle wash of colour or a bold dramatic eye.
The Sahara Sunset palette includes Cloud 9 (a pale white satin), Elite (a burnt orange matte), Drift (a medium brown matte) and VIP (a gold bronze shimmer)
Ideal for those looking to add a few tones from the seaon into their make-up look, the Countryside Lavender Eyeshadow Trio from Burt's Bees features a three-step simple eye look; with a lid, smokey and highlight shade.
For a warm subtle glow, the Celestial Skin Shimmer Blush from Mii Cosmetics adds radiance and warmth to cheeks and temples.
Use a cream contour palette instead of power during winter months, like the Makeup Forever Cream Contour five pan palette. Not only will it add hydration, but it is more controlable to build and blend.

If you suffer with dry skin during the winter, use a primer before applying your make-up for an extra boost of hydration and to avoid make-up clinging to dry patches. The Benefit Porefessional Pearl Primer will not only act as a perfect winter base for make-up, but the pearl shimmer will help illuminate your skin for a healthy glow.
Experiment with different nude shades for upcoming weddings as the winter season allows you to get away with deeper nudes, browns and taupe lip shades. The Burt's Bees liquid lipstick in the shade Niagra Nude, is a rich deep brown warm toned nude perfect for the season.

If you are after a bold lip to rock this winter, choose berry reds, deep wine and dark plum shades.
The Savvy Minerals lipstick by Young Living is a medium coverage product to give your lips a pop of rich colour and a fuller look with just the right amount of shine, colour and pout to your lips.
If you already have your fave lippy on hand, use a topper gloss to change your look from day to night. The Sleek Loud and Clear lipgloss can transform any lip product for a shiney and glossy evening look.
The miracle for dry skin sufferers, apply the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask before bed and wake up with smooth hydrated skin which lasts for 72 hours; enriched with avocado oil for intense, targeted skincare.
