I think you have to try REALLY hard to end up with the wrong lipstick color on your wedding day. Why? Because with that gorgeous dress and amazing wedding hairstyle, chances are you’re going to look great no matter what color you go with. But there are a few lipstick colors that somehow always look beautiful, which means if you choose one of them your chance of picking the right one just went to 100%.
Whether you’re hiring a professional wedding makeup artist or doing it yourself, go to your local Sephora and get an idea of what color family looks best on you. The best way to do this is to identify your skin’s undertone and figure out if you have more yellow (warm) or pink (cool) undertones. One trick for figuring this out is to look at your wrists: If your veins are more on the blue side you’re pink, and if they’re more green you most likely have a warmer (yellow) undertone. Yellow undertones will want to stick to warmer lipsticks (IE: brick colors), while pink undertones will want something that’s more blue or purple-based (like a classic bright red).
Wedding Makeup Tip: I would decide on which lipstick color you want AFTER you’ve picked out your wedding dress and hairstyle. I think the two of those things have a tendency to inspire each other, and should influence the lipstick color you choose, too.
Below are my favorite lipstick colors for weddings. Remember to pick the right one for you based on your skin’s undertone, and it’ll be hard to go wrong!
