Lip Looks: Make A Statement

Make a bold entrance with a lip style that looks like you lined your lips for days! This look is definitely for a night look or those that want a bright, bold lip.

Apply lip crayon as your base layer.

Lip Looks: Day to Night Pout

When it comes to transitioning day to night, you’ll want something that gives a bit of a pout. This lip look takes you from a hint of color to a pop of shimmer to make your lips go ‘POW’!

Apply a lip shimmer balm as your base layer. This five pack from Burt Bees is – wait for it – the bees knees! I couldn’t resist it!

Later on in the day or night, simply layer on the Body Shop’s Honey Bronze lip shimmer for the perfect pearlesque shimmer that will make your lips twinkle like the stars.

Lip Looks: The Perfect Pink Gloss

These lip looks are sure to look amazing!

For the perfect pout, the easiest thing is a balm-slash-stain that lasts all day. This Beach Tint by BECCA is the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to the perfect pink pout without the lip plumper! This is sure to knock your groom’s socks off and seal your ceremony with a sweet kiss. Swipe a soft, non-shimmery gloss over it after the big kiss, and don’t worry about your lipstick for the rest of the night!

Another amazing product for stay-all-day color: the Ulta Collection Matte Lip Tint. Once it’s on, it’s on and it’s PERFECT!

Be sure to keep the lip looks you choose handy in your Bridal Emergency Kit!
