Favorite Wedding Day Lipstick Shades
We are somehow already at the end of October and that means my wedding season is winding down. I still have a few more weddings to do makeup for and two more to attend (and I’m the maid of honor in one of those). But overall, my crazy season for 2019 weddings is pretty much over. This past year, in general, has had me a little bit too, and I hate to use this word, busy. I feel like I haven’t had a minute to breathe, catch up, relax, hang with friends and family – and that ain’t good!
But, today’s blog post is not for me to ramble on and on about the wedding season or me being stressed out, haha. It is about MY FAVORITE WEDDING DAY LIPSTICK SHADES. This post is for you, my bride-to-be! If you want the absolute perfect lipstick on your wedding day (and to wear beyond, obvs), look no further. You can rock any of these lipstick shades at your shower, bachelorette, rehearsal dinner, wedding day, honeymoon, and beyond in your everyday life.
Being a makeup artist, I know a little thing or two about lipstick. I’m talking brands, shades, formulas, textures – you name it. Today, I’m sharing my top eight favorite wedding day lipstick shades that my brides love. These are the most popular shades in my wedding makeup kit that I go through pretty quickly. Before we dive in, let me just say that the majority of my clients have fair to medium skin tones. Not every one of these shades would look amazing on someone with a deeper skin tone, so just keep that in mind. Okay, okay, now let’s dive in!
