21 Brides Who Said "Yes" to a Bold Lip
Whether a bold lipstick defines your everyday style or going-out look, you shouldn't discount this statement makeup choice for your wedding day. Although your makeup is a smaller big-day detail, a daring lip color can help define your overarching bridal aesthetic—so it's important to give your look plenty of thought. Your makeup will be captured in photos you'll cherish forever, after all. Luckily, you have unlimited options to consider, especially if you decide to create your beauty look around a bold or bright lip. From glamorous red to a moody plum (and everything in between!), the shade you choose is entirely up to you—just make sure it works with your skin tone. A flattering color isn't the only deciding factor, though. You can customize your pout's finish by opting for your preferred shade in either a matte, gloss, or stain form.
It's important to note that other elements of your wedding should influence your choice of lip color. Take your accessories into consideration, like the bouquet you'll carry down the aisle. This bride did just that: With the help of Mimi B. Tran, she decided on a coral lip that complemented her rose-filled clutch.
Other colorful details featured throughout your big day can also impact your lip shade, from your groom's suit to the color of your wedding dress. Even your event's style can inform your pout. We believe a classic day deserves a traditional, glam lipstick (like a cherry red!), for example. With the right hue, a bold lip is sure to wow—even on the most minimalistic brides. Ahead, we've rounded up the inspiration to prove it.
