You’ve chosen the dress, the seating chart is done and you’ve just about locked in your dream wedding day beauty look, it’s just lacking that that one thing that will tie it all together… your lip color for the day. Here’s some inspiration to help you discover the color you’re meant to be with.
Fabulous lips are the perfect finishing touch to your look for your wedding day. 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. Matte colors are trending right now as well as nudes and pale pinks, however if you are not one to follow trends and typically go for a bold color then go for it on your wedding day as well. After-all, you’ll want to look just like you on your most beautiful day.
Some questions to ask yourself when planning your lip color.
What’s your bridal style? Is it classic and romantic? Then a soft pink or a light creamy coral might be a good choice. Or is it more contemporary? Then perhaps opting for a pop of color or a rich matte color is the way to go.
For brides that just want a hint of color on their wedding day opt for a nude tone that offers a slight contrast from your natural skin tone. Your Makeup Artist can build the pigment to achieve a color that compliments your overall look creating the perfect finish to your flawless wedding day look.
What’s your day-to-day look? If you typically don’t wear lip color then a bold or dark shade might be a extreme for your wedding day. On the other hand if you typically wear bright rich colors then a soft or nude shade would be the opposite end of the extreme for you.
Rosey pinks, peachy blossoms, captivating corals, lush berries and subtle coffee tones are colors that work with virtually any skin tone. Take some these colors for a test run in your regular day or for an evening out and take some selfies with each before scheduling your makeup trial. Bring your test selfies with you and your artist can help you narrow down the winning wedding day shade.
