Five Red Lipsticks Perfect For Brides

A red lip is one of the most classic and unwavering beauty trends there is. The bold colour has been used as a symbol of female empowerment and femininity for years.

While traditionally brides go for classic nudes and lighter pink shades, you can’t deny how perfectly a pop of red completes a fresh face and white dress.

Thanks to the huge range of red shades available, you can still customise your look to fit your theme or wedding vibe and deliver a touch of excitement without having to step too far out of your boundaries. After all, it’s important to look and feel like your confident self on your wedding day!

Here are our favourite red lipsticks for your bridal beauty look…


Giorgio Armani Beauty Rouge D’Armani Lipstick in shade Four Hundred

This iconic red from Armani Beauty delivers a vibrant yet classic shade in a long-lasting, velvety smooth formula. As far as reds go, it’s a neutral colour meaning it will suit a huge variety of skin tones and wedding themes.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in shade Red Carpet Red

Inspired by old Hollywood, this shade is a true ruby red that is rich and bold. It delivers a matte finish but is a very hydrating formula and will give you glamourous film star vibes for your big day.

M.A.C Creamsheen Lipstick in shade Dozen Carnations

The M.A.C brand is synonymous with red lipstick and they create some of the best sellers there are, but it’s one of their lesser known shades you should try. This tomato red comes in a creamy, balm like formula that has a slightly sheer finish. It’s best for Summery, beach weddings.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in shade Louise

As a more unexpected choice, this brick-red shade is for the bride who wants to make a statement without having to go for bright colours. It perfectly complements a lot of skin tones and the satin finish formula is comfortable to wear.

CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in shade No. 5

Does it get more iconic than a CHANEL lipstick styled after their most iconic fragrance? No, it doesn’t. This lipstick is a bright red with a touch of a blue undertone that pulls it back from being too Summery. The finish is matte without looking dry and the texture is super creamy.
