Top 10 Lip Colours For Your Wedding

Choosing the perfect lip shade for your special day can involve quite a few factors – you want it to compliment your skin tone and makeup style without it taking away from the whole look – less is more when it comes to a brides lip colour.

Ladies, this is meant to be the most special day of your life so picking the perfect lip shade is a fatal step.

Going back to the less is more statement, I generally mean no bright or harsh tones such as bright red or dark purple (unless being bold is what you’re all about, then by all means go for it).

I like to see bridal makeup as a way of enhancing the brides natural beauty. In sticking with this vision, I believe that finding the perfect soft toned lip shade is key which will add a beautiful and natural sheen to the lips.

This includes nudes, all different shades of nude, whether it be a pink nude, a brown nude or a peachy nude. It honestly depends on the look you are going for, keeping in mind the theme of your wedding – it is essential that the colour you choose ties in with every aspect.

Here are my top 10 lip colours for your wedding day – all work perfectly with every type of skin tone.


Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G – Nude Kate, $49.00

 NARS Satin Lipstick – Rosecliff, $40.00

 This shade is best described as a “soft rose” with light to medium rosy pink and warm undertones it adds the perfect blush to your lips. The finish also leaves your lips with the perfect amount of shine without looking to matte.
