11 Favorite Winter Bridal Beauty Trends

We often give winter a bad rap in the beauty realm – duller hair, drier skin, yadda yadda- but we’re here to tell you, there is hope! We picked our favorite bridal beauty looks from winter and brought them all together to inspire you. So as you’re planning your look for next winter, look no further than Exquisite Weddings, we’ve got your back.

After scoping the blog-o-sphere we picked up on 3 awesome beauty trends for winter brides. Below you’ll find a little bit of everything, and most of the brides featured got married right here in San Diego. Meaning: the professionals who helped them look their best on their wedding day are available locally. How great is that?!

Check out the looks below and let us know which bridal beauty picks you love the most! If you’re a bride who’s still searching for her beauty guru, just look below the photo and give them a ring! (like a phone call – not that kind of ring)

Or hop over to our vendor guide where you can find some of our favorite bridal beauty professionals.

Bridal Beauty Trend: Go Vintage!

Dark lipstick and intricate updos are the name of the game in this trend. And we couldn’t be more excited! There is so much room to play with this trend – so show off those cat-eyes, smoochable lips and elegant hair.

Bridal Beauty Trend: Nothin’ but that beautiful smile

Thankfully, we are entering an age where natural beauty and radiant self-confidence are more desirable than a porcelain tone. San Diego is a shining example of this value in brides who love the skin they’re in and wear it proud! We love these natural looks.
