Bridal Beauty Tips from Debbie Jean

Choosing the correct shade of lipstick on your wedding day is an important part of your over all bridal make‐up look. Here are some useful tips to help you make up your mind on a suitable shade.
It’s important to choose a lip shade that is not to light for your bridal make‐up look – this way you won’t look to washed out in the full length photos.
When it comes to choosing the right texture it’s a matter of trial and error. Some women prefer moist formulas and others prefer matte. Either way it generally comes off, so touch ups on your wedding day will be required.
There is no set rule when it comes to lip products. If you have pink lips you may not require much lip colour whilst those who have pale lips might want to add some colour to the lips to brighten up their face. I for example only wear lip gloss and sometimes a lip liner and a gloss. Any combination of lipstick, lip liner and gloss is acceptable.
It is important when wearing lipstick ‐ to match the shade to your hair colour. For example orange red hair suits rusty browns, copper and warm shades. Red hair like brown/burgundy suits cool shades like plum, pink/brown and cool shades.
A handy trick is to apply a shimmery highlighter to the bows of your top lip. This creates a lovely highlight to your lips.
Whatever your choice in lip products I am sure you will make a beautiful bride.
