58 Red Lip Ideas For Holiday Weddings

red lip ideas for holiday weddings cover

A statement lip color can play the perfect accessory for those wanting to express their personality – or simply add a little drama for night, besides, a bold lip can work with any kind of wedding dress trend. Executing loud lips on your wedding day boils down to confidence. Here are some tips on what to do, and avoid.

Consider Wearing Red Lipstick At Night

From the first kiss (and many thereafter) to the close-up, off-guard photo inevitabilities, and – not to mention – navigating the wedding breakfast and free-flowing champagne: Bold lipstick can face many obstacles on one’s wedding day. For this reason, brides traditionally opt for a soft shade like a nude or natural pink for the day. Less maintenance means less risk and stress. At the same time, if red isn’t your signature shade, a bride runs the risk of regret in years to come. But an easy way around wearing red – or a similarly loud shade that’s not your usual go-to – is to pop one on for night. Just as you might update your outfit for evening, adding a splash of color on your lips can play up your look, giving you a new style with minimum effort.

Choose Wearable Red

When it comes to lipstick, red is a whole spectrum in itself. From bright, poppy, orangey-reds, to classic pillar box reds, and deep, vampy reds bordering on burgundy, there really is a red for everyone. If you know your shade, great. You’ll likely be confident in it already. But if not, Basile says to try first experimenting with a darker variant. A darker red is elegant, classic and sophisticated, and doesn’t scream ‘sexy’. It’s this that makes it more wearable than a classic red, she says, and wedding-appropriate (unless, of course you want to channel sex kitten vibes – go for it!). Alternatively, a fun, electric chilli red looks modern and playful, while nicely brightening the complexion – as celebrity Solange Knowles demonstrated on her wedding day.

Practice At Home

Every beauty expert will have advice on finding The One for you when it comes to red lipstick, but at the end of the day you are the one wearing it and your opinion is the only one that really matters. Invest in some mini lipsticks in shades you love and try them out at home. Ask yourself how you feel in each shade, test whether the formulas stay put through eating/drinking and how they fade, and check if it photographs nicely or reads differently on camera. This will all help you with the following point:

Never settle for something you’re not entirely comfortable in. This will affect your confidence and cause unnecessary anxiety. As a bride-to-be you’ll have enough stress from your never-ending wedding already – don’t add to it.

Layer Lip Products

When you’ve chosen your shade, apply it as make-up artist would. Apply a matching liner all over the lips (not just on the lip lines), layering a matte-finish lipstick applied with a lip brush on top. Next, to achieve sharp definition outline the edge of your lips with concealer. Finally, spritz with a make-up setting spray.

Top Up Your Lips

You can apply your lipstick straight from the bullet, but you’ll get much more longevity from a lip brush – so keep a mini brush in your clutch. Don’t apply your lipstick to the inside of your lips as this is when you get transfer on your teeth. And, to avoid your lippy coming off on your champagne flute take a tissue and blot it between your lips as the final step. Or, where possible, sip your drinks through straws.
