Wedding days are special. It’s the first time you get to celebrate your love with your family and friends who care deeply about you. And it can be a grand affair, so why not make it extra special? A colored lip is an easy way to do just that!

Be You

The best way to figure out what color lip you want to wear on your wedding day is by asking yourself: what is my personality? How do I want to feel on my wedding day? The color of your lip is an important detail that can fit into the overall aesthetic of your day.

When you hire a makeup artist for your wedding day, they can help guide you and select a color that works best for you. The great thing about colored lipsticks is that there’s no rulebook for how people should choose their colors—so if you know what color you want, go with it!

Pop of Color with the Seasons

A colored lip can look great any time of year! Summer and fall weddings are a great time to play with pops of color on your lips while in winter you can opt for more earthy hues. Consider the color theme of your wedding, the backdrop outside (bright sun or a snowy field), and the color of your hair. While there is no right or wrong choice, it is a great way.

Long-Lasting Lip Color

If you’re going for the bold look, make sure your makeup artist uses high-quality, long-lasting lipstick. It’s not uncommon for some colors to fade after drinking and eating, but if you want your lips to stay true through dinner and dancing, it’s best to invest in one that won’t budge. If you’re still worried about how much wear your new lipstick will get on the big day, mention this during your makeup trial and test out how it lasts throughout the day.

When it comes time for dinner or drinks at the reception, touch up your lip color as needed, and be sure to keep a compact handy for quick reapplication.


With help of a professional makeup artist, you can pull off any lipstick look on your wedding day. Whether it’s a pop of color or a subtle nude, we think it’s important to wear a color that feels good in the process and will last you from the first look to the last dance.
