Seal your vows with a kiss on your wedding day. Make your lips perfectly kissable with preparation and proper lipstick application. From saying “I do” to toasting at your reception, your lip color must be camera ready and last through a day of eating, drinking and kisses. Truth be told, lip color does not always stay on 24-hours-a-day, maintain your wedding day lip look with helpful tips and tricks to assist and promote color longevity. Read on to learn more about wedding-ready lips for your big day.

Before Wedding Lip Care

As your wedding approaches, take the time to protect your lips from the elements. Particularly, if you are getting married in the summer or winter, during these seasons lips may be more prone to drying and chapping. Protect your lips with lip balms or creams specially formulated for lip care and sun protection. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, exercising and eating a healthy diet, this helps improve the skin quality of your lips and your entire body.

About Lip Augmentation

If you are interested in lip augmentation your options may include injectable fillers, lip implants and lip augmentation surgery. Always consult with a medical professional. For a less invasive option, consider over-the-counter lip plumpers, these are lip glosses containing ingredients intended to make your lips look bigger.

Choosing a Lip Color

Selecting a lip color is a personal choice based on individual preferences. Decide in advance if you want to showcase your eyes or lips. The most popular color for wedding day lipstick is pink or red. Lipstick colors range from natural nudes to electric neons. Coordinate the color to your overall wedding look.

Prep and Prime

On your wedding day, exfoliate and wash your lips as you would your face. Afterwards, pat your lips with a soft cloth and ensure they are thoroughly dry before applying lip color. Optional, apply a moisturizing primer to help extend lip color duration and lip liner to emphasize fullness.

Longevity and Application Tips

Blot your lips after applying lipstick; this helps lip color last longer. Use lip gloss or lip lacquer to add shine to your lips. Before walking down the aisle, check to make sure there is no lipstick on your teeth. When taking a bite of your wedding cake, try to keep your lips off the fork. Include an extra lip color and lipstick brush inside your wedding day make-up touch-up kit.
