Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. From finding the perfect dress to choosing the right makeup, there are so many aspects to consider. However, when it comes to picking the perfect lip color, many brides tend to get stuck. With so many shades and hues available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one that complements your skin tone. But don’t worry – with a little guidance, you can easily find the perfect lip color that enhances your bridal beauty. In this post, we’ll share some expert tips and tricks for choosing the perfect lip color for your skin tone on your wedding day.

Determine your skin tone

The first step in choosing the right lip color is to determine your skin tone. You can do this by evaluating the undertones in your skin. Undertones are the colors that show through your skin and can be cool (pink or blue) or warm (golden or yellow). The easiest way to determine your undertones is to look at the veins on your wrist – if they’re blue, you have cool undertones, and if they’re green, you have warm undertones. If you can’t tell, you likely have a neutral undertone.

Pick the right undertone

Once you’ve determined your skin undertone, it’s essential to choose a lip color that complements it.  If you have warm undertones, opt for warmer shades of red, such as oranges or corals. 

Cooler undertones  When spending time in the sun these tones tend to darken but do sometimes burn. If you have cool undertones, go for shades with blue undertones, such as pink, berry, or mauve.

Neutral undertones of course the most versatile, and contain a mix of shades found both in cooler and warmer undertones.  Although they are the most versatile in the color spectrum they are also the most sensitive to the sun and tend to burn very easily.   Neutral undertones work well with just about any color in particular red berries and mauves.

Don’t forget to consider the rest of your makeup

When choosing your lip color, be sure to keep your overall makeup look in mind. If you’re going for natural or minimalist makeup, you may want to choose a more neutral shade. On the other hand, if you’re going for a dramatic look, consider a brighter or bolder color. Your makeup artist will help bring it all together with the right shades for your eye shadow color and blush to ensure that everything works together nicely.

Test before committing

Lastly, it’s important to test out your preferred lip shades before the big day. You can do this by swatching on your wrist or better yet, trying it on your lips. Wear it for a few hours to test how it looks and feels on your lips. This way, you can ensure that it looks perfect with your makeup, dress, and skin tone.

Don’t forget to bring your favorites with you to your trial.  Your Master Makeup Artist is always willing to give you the best advice on how to make your choice, so bring a few with you to your trial or your appointment.

Remember to consider your wedding theme and dress, the rest of your makeup, and test out your preferred shades to ensure that it looks perfect on the day.
