Lip color, It’s More Than Just A Pretty Face

There is something special about the  bounce in your step… that only comes from finding the perfect lipstick.

It’s been so long since we’ve talked about lip color we thought we’d take this time to share a few tips and some of our favorite bridal lip looks.

Fabulous lips are the perfect finishing touch to your look for your wedding day and any day you want that little something extra.  While your lashes and brows frame your look lips are personal… they are intimate and next to your hairstyle your lip color is one of the biggest decisions to be made when planning your wedding day look.  We’re in LOVE with so many fabulous choices for today’s bride. From garden fresh hues, to colors that remind you of your favorite bakery sweets like a Raspberry Macaroon, to vampy reds there is a lip color for everyone.

Before you go overboard at the lipstick bar you need to define your skin tone.  In a nutshell there are five primary types of skin complexion; fair, light, medium, tan and deep.  In addition to your primary skin tone there are three types of undertones that work with primary complexion type;  warm, cool and medium.

For skin color with warm undertones deep plums, oranges, copper and gold really POP!  If you’re skin color has cooler undertones opt for soft mocha’s and nude colors add just the right touch.  Finally for medium skin tones pinks,  red berries and mauves pack a punch.

“When it comes to lipstick, red is a whole spectrum in itself. From bright, poppy, orangey-reds, to classic pillar box reds, and deep, vampy reds bordering on burgundy, there really is a red for everyone.”~ Harper’s Bazzar
