Lip Shades Brides Want When

They Walk Down The Aisle.

If you don’t normally wear colour on your lips, your wedding day is not the day to be road testing.

We’re all for taking risks, but your big day comes with enough as it is, right? Looking like yourself (only, better) and choosing a beauty look that enhances your natural features should be the goal and a nude lip is just about the best way to do that. What product would last through a ceremony, pictures, toasts, dinner, and dancing — without getting all over my new husband’s face? 

Brides spend countless hours planning their big day down to the most minute detail – even when it comes to selecting the perfect lip shade to wear for the moment she kisses her groom. What’s a bride to wear for her ceremony to avoid getting lipstick all over her husband-to-be during the big “you may kiss the bride” moment? Or even worse, wind up smeared for the recessional photos?

 It’s safe to say lipstick serves as the finishing touch to a beautiful face, and for your wedding you want to make sure you’re making the right decision.  We searched high and low for some of our favourite lip colours (and formulas) out there so that you can take the guesswork out of the equation. 

Nars’s Audacious Lipstick gives smooth, buttery application, and this cool lavender-gray shade is basically your lips but better. (Audacious Lipstick in Dayle, $32, Nars)

One application of Marc Jacobs’s Le Marc Lip Crème gives you 10 hours of luxurious color. Although this lippie gives off a shade of pink, it’s a tried-and-true beige nude. (Lip Crème in Sonic Truth, $30, Marc Jacobs)
