If there is one thing we can guarantee on your wedding day, it’s that you will spend the entire time smiling, so it’s imperative that you have impeccable lip color to best enhance your pout. But before you lacquer your lips, there are a few elements to consider.
According to Brides magazine, you should exfoliate your pout once a week with a gentle sugar scrub. This will keep your lips soft and supple and help lip color best adhere.
From greeting loved ones to smooching your sweetie, you want to make sure you don’t kiss your lip color goodbye. For lasting lipstick, makeup artist Paul Innis told the publication that prepping your pout is key.
Innis recommends lining and filling in lips with a pencil that matches your natural lip color. To set the liner, cover your pout with a single ply of tissue and dust face powder over your lips. Line and fill your lips one more time and then apply color with a dry lip brush.
While a shiny pout may seem like a good idea for pictures, avoid gloss if you’re going to be outside – if there’s a slight breeze, your hair (and veil!) will likely stick to your slick lips.
