I’ve already in previous blog posts written about wedding eyes and eyebrows, now lets focus on the lips!
Beautiful lips are essential for a bride, and it is a very important part of the bridal makeup. You can choose from a wide range of lip products such as matte, sheer, shimmery, glossy and creamy lipsticks.
Firstly its really important to take care of your lips as, they are very sensitive and tend to dry out easily. I always tell my brides to moisturize their lips even more the week before the wedding as cracked lips are not very nice on your wedding day and the lipstick goes on unevenly.
Secondly, always remember to use sunscreen for the lips when you are out in the sun!
My favorite moisturizing lip product at the moment is Lip care mix from Makeup Store.
Try using a combination of three lip caring products – peeling, mask and lip balm. The green crème is a mild peeling. The white creme is a softening mask that can be used during both night and day. The white creme can also be used as a remover for lipstick. The pink creme is a lip balm that can be used everyday.
So which colour should you go for on your wedding day? Most brides prefer a neutral shade like pink, nude, beige pink or rosy brown. If you go for a soft eye makeup it looks pretty to have a stronger lip colour on most women. The best way is to try out different shades on the day of your trial and decide from there which one you like the most. One good thing to remember is that small lips look bigger in softer glossy colours where bigger lips tend to look better with a darker shade with a matte texture.
Here are 3 great ways make your lip colour last longer on your wedding day:
- You can use a lip primer before applying the color (I like lip insurance by too faced)
- Line your lip with a lip pencil before or after applying the lipstick.
- Another great tip is to apply the lipstick 3 times and after each time you bite off the colour on a piece of tissue paper and after the last time divide the paper in 2 so you end up with a thin layer of paper, hold it over your lips and gently powder with a loose powder on the paper over your lips.
Hope you found this helpful, keep enjoying the summer and I ll see you in my next blog post!
