It’s your big day—the day you’ve possibly waited for almost all your life (for those hopeless romantics) or the one that you’ve been planning for long and hard! Naturally then, you want everything to be perfect. While you’ve spent days choosing the colour of your bridal outfit, you might be in a bit of a dilemma as far as your makeup is concerned. While it’s up to your makeup artist to tell you what will work best with your outfit, a little research prior to that important makeup trial might actually help you. So here we are giving you a list of lippies that might work well with the colour of your bridal outfit…

If you’re wearing red…

You’re wearing the most loved bridal colour—a bright vermillion red that can never let you down. How do you do justice to your lip colour with something as gorgeous as that? We suggest picking a nude that’ll offset beautifully against the red. But if you want to go all out with a traditional bridal look, don’t hesitate in picking a red that matches the red of your sari/lehenga/salwar suit.

If you’re playing it slightly different yet sticking to a traditional bridal outfit colour like maroon or marsala, know that you are sure to look drop dead gorgeous on your big day because this colour always does justice to Indian skin tones. To do your lips on your wedding day, ask your makeup artist to pick a maroon that matches your bridal outfit or a taupe colour that will complement the look beautifully in case you don’t want an overdose of maroon.

Congratulations on being brave and picking a shade that most brides steer clear of. Whether it’s a sari or a dull silver lehenga, it’s sure to make you stand out on your wedding day. For your lip colour, pick a bright fuschia pink that’ll add that much-needed pop of colour to your look or go for a deep plum to give your makeup a vintage vibe.

If you’re having a Church wedding or opting for a white lehenga with floral work on your big day, know that white will always be a winning colour if you like experimenting. With your white bridal outfit, pick a matte tangerine or even a peach both of which will go beautifully with your look.

If you’ve picked a royal blue number for your big day, kudos to choosing something out of the box. What will work well for the lips when it comes to a look like this is a scarlet lip colour—a hue that’ll colour block beautifully. You can even opt for a peachy coral lip colour if you want to tone things down.

Love pink instead of red? We don’t blame you—pink is always the right choice for us girlie girls as far as a bridal outfit is concerned. A coffee toned lip colour or even a rose nude will do perfect justice to your lips if you’re going for a pink bridal outfit.
