18 Feb The Perfect Lipstick Color For The Perfect Bride
The lipstick color you wear on your wedding day speaks volumes, and for any bride, the search for the perfect color can be exciting and confusing at the same time. With your makeup in place, the lipstick helps complete your facial look. You would want a color that oozes confidence and elegance all in one glance.
When it comes to lipsticks there are many shades of colors. The exciting part is you can use different colors to make different statements depending on the occasion. Lipstick color shades can be used to express a certain aspect of your personality that may not be so obvious otherwise. Here are some exquisite lipstick colors you can use on your wedding day together and the statements they convey:
Red Colored Lipstick
Almost every girl has a shade of red lipstick in her handbag. Red is a powerful color signifying passion, energy, and independence. You can use this bold color to create a color contrast to the white dress.
‘Red is bold, sensual and look-at-me… a confident big city girl who doesn’t let the grass grow under her feet. But you’re not really quite as badass as you’d like to be… after all, it’s the signature colour of all those ultra-chic French women for a reason. Classic red would not look out of place in a country club or a silk-and-pearls restaurant. It’s a colour that you can wear from the ballrooms of the Ritz to the bohemian seediness of Paris’ Montmartre. In short, it’s the colour of a woman who is fun loving, passionate, energetic, independent and extremely adaptable. With a hefty side of lady-like chic thrown in for good measure.’ Read more from The Beauty Gypsy…
For the bride going for a bold, fierce, and passionate look, this is the color for you. It screams elegance and confidence on your big day.
Nude colored lipstick
Nude-colored lips are very catchy. This color gives a very natural look to the rest of your makeup. It comes in different shades, ranging from very light to very dark. The trick here is to find the right shade for your skin tone. Very light shades could make you look dull, and very dark shades could make you appear too aggressive.
‘Let’s face it, we girls absolutely love this one. Frankly, who doesn’t want to feel special and sexy at the same time? Heels, a hot hairdo, bold and mischievous eyes and a luscious lip color – that’s all it takes. Agreed that when you think flirty, you think red hot lips. But the appeal of natural nude lips is never sexier than in this mood. It’s men approved too, trust us. Try Scattered Petals, a shade so lovingly pink that it’s downright kissable. We’re also crushing on Sultriness. Well, the name says it all.’ Read more from BB…
These shades of nudes are for the brides who want to give off the elegant vibe in a subtle manner.
Plum Colored lipstick
This color is a red-purple hybrid. It is a royal, luxurious and uplifting color. You definitely want these three traits on your wedding day. It contracts the white gown very well, making your face pop, with the usual shades ranging from dark to bright. The dark shade can be used on formal occasions, while the brighter shade works best for fun and exciting events.
‘These subdued but unexpected lipstick tones pair well with dark or olive skin. Plum and raisin lipsticks are smoky, sensual and intriguing, which can either describe you right now or open the door to these aspects of your personality. Be chic, classy and just a little mysterious in plum or raisin colored lipstick.’ Read more from Color Psychology…
