How To Wear A Bold Lip For Your Wedding

by Yisell Santos


Fall is in full swing here in Northern Virginia and as of late, it feels more like winter.  It's cold and my little sweater isn't cutting it anymore.  I'm already dreaming of spring and summer.  

Sigh...Spring, when the flowers bloom and all the beautiful bright colors start coming into play.  It's also one of my favorite times of the year to get married (other than Fall).  If you're getting married in the Spring, have you thought about wearing a bold lip?  Spring/Summer is the perfect time to wear a beautiful bold lip as your pop of color.  I love shades of Pink , Orange, Purple and Red for Spring.  That's right, you can absolutely rock those colors but it's all about finding the right shade for you.  Here are a few examples of how you can wear a bold lip for your wedding day.

Keep the eyes neutral with little to no color and thin liner. Add a pop of color on the lips to make a statement.  Great for a morning wedding.

Don't like the neutral eyes look?  Try giving your lashes some oomph or opt for shades of light gray or soft browns.  This is a wonderful look for an afternoon wedding.

Not afraid of color and bold makeup?  No problem!  Wearing a bold lip along side a smokey eye can be done!  Stick with dark browns, and plums on the eyes.  Stay away from black as it's too heavy when paired up with a bold lip.  Looks like these are perfect for evening weddings.

With that said, don't be afraid of color and try something new.  You may just start a bold lipstick collection.
