Wedding Lipstick: Shade of Pink or Shade of Red?

Red Lips BrideYou want to look absolutely perfect on your wedding day—that’s a given. But everyone’s always asking what you want: you have to pick out your dress, your hairstyle, and yes, your makeup look too.

Your wedding day doesn’t deserve just an ordinary makeup look. You need to go all out! And one of the best ways to glam it up is to pick the perfect lip color.

Don’t know where to begin? Well, lip color has a lot to do with the season, so consider these tips when considering which color you want to build your look with:

  • Winter Shades: Winter is a time of year when you don’t want to go too dark, but too bright wouldn’t be much better. You’ll want a clear, refreshing look compared to the quiet stillness the season offers, so the best colors are crisp, solid shades of red.
  • Spring Shades: Ahh—the season of color. Spring usually sees the return of beautiful blossoms and brings to mind pastel and bright floral colors. Keep in the same tone of the season by choosing a paler lipstick shade like soft pink or coral.
  • Summer Shades: Summer is probably the one season you can get away with just about anything. You’ll want to go brighter than you would in the fall, but bolder than you would in the spring. More intense shades of reds and pinks will brighten your face and bring the season’s style into your wedding look.
  • Autumn Shades: When you think of fall, you usually think of things like pumpkin and spice. Inorporating this into your lipstick color will help you play your style off the falling leaves and give you some great wedding pictures. Your best bet is to go with a lipstick that has darker tones, golden hues, or even a touch of brown.

As always, make sure to try your intended look out before the big day. The last think you want is to be late for your own wedding because you’re having a bad makeup day! Have fun and good luck!

    I just wore some lip gloss. Worked well for me, I already have a pretty nice shade of pink lips and I didn’t want my husband to be to have colored lips in our recession photos!
