The Best Lip and Cheek Stains for Fall Brides
Whether for pre-wedding bridal events or the wedding day itself, we love two-in-one lip and cheek stains for brides. They are easy to use, they look incredibly natural when applied correctly, and they create a pretty, monochrome beauty look that's perfect for such a special occasion. We especially love lip and cheek stains for the autumn months, as you can trade in your summer-ready neon shades for vampy, dark colors—think berries, wines, and reds—which are perfect to wear for a fall celebration. (Of course, if you're after that pale pink, classic bridal look, there are plenty of lip and cheek stains to achieve that timeless aesthetic, too.)
Stains, whether in liquid or cream form, also go on seamlessly—we love how easy it is to blend them in—and can easily be reapplied without looking cakey or heavy with layers. What's more, you can easily apply them on the go: More often than not, two-in-one lip and cheek stains are formulated so that you can just use your fingers to blend the formula into your cheeks and lips—you'll be ready to go in a flash. That makes them perfect for wedding-day touch-ups. Some two-in-one stains contain skin-loving ingredients like antioxidants that will act as an added layer of protection against aging free radicals in the air.
Perhaps best of all, two-in-one lip and cheek products are available in practically any type of formula you prefer, whether stick, pencil, pot, doe-foot, chubby—and the list continues. Here, we have rounded up some of our favorites to infuse a pretty, fresh-faced look into your fall bridal style.
