There’s a reason your wedding day is called the most important day of your life. That is the day when you are the woman of the hour; and all eyes are on you. So, obviously then you need to look perfect from head to toe.

We are sure you are going for your makeup trials and zeroing in on a bridal makeup look, but have you given a thought to what lip shade you are going to wear? A lip colour not only ties your makeup together but also adds the glam factor to your bridal look. Let us help you pick the right lip colour for your wedding.

Here are some important things every bride should consider while picking a lipstick colour for her bridal makeup look.  

 

Skin tone

Skin tone

The lip colour you will be rocking at your wedding should be apt for your skin tone obviously, but also remember to keep the undertone of your skin in mind for the big day. If you have a warm undertone, stick to blue-toned reds and pinks, while orange-toned reds and pinks work best for cool undertones.

 

Your wedding outfit

Your wedding outfit

If your wedding outfit is the classic red or green, don’t think twice, just go for nice red lip colour. Nothing goes better on a red and golden lehenga than a matchy-matchy red pout. However, if you’re going for a golden bridal outfit, you can team it with anything from a red or maroon to a nude lipstick. For pastel outfits, cool-toned shades like pink and peach are your best bet.

 

Time and season

Time and season

Pick a lighter shade like peach, pink or red, if you are having a day wedding and go for bolder shades like deep red, burgundy and brown, if it’s a night-time affair. You can check out the Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color range for some gorgeous bold shades for Indian skin tones. Summer shades like orange, mauve and rose pink work for day weddings, while winter shades like berry, burgundy and fuchsia can be worn for a night-time wedding.

If you are opting for statement eyes like shimmer or metallic, pick a muted matte lip shade like nude brown, coral pink, peachy brown, mauve or cherry red. However, if you are going for a minimal makeup look with dramatic kolh-lined eyes, pair it with a bold chocolate brown, scarlet red, bright pink or deep plum lip and add a pop of colour to your bridal look.
