Expert Lipstick Tips from Love, Honour & Be True

1. Stick To Your Style
For your wedding you need to find a lipstick which is in keeping with your bridal makeup as well as your personal style and wedding theme; if you don't wear red lipstick, don't start on your wedding day.
It is important to be true to your self and choose a shade which enhances your natural beauty.

2. Marry with Moisture
A moisturising lipstick (like our Love, Honour and Be True) is best for a wedding – this kind of formula will keep your lips looking their best and will wear off the most evenly and naturally.
Anything too glossy will feel too sticky and mark everything, even your husband to be.

3. Make it Last
Apply your lipstick in several thin layers, blot between applications this will give the most lasting finish.
4. Stock Up
Always purchase the lipstick that is applied by your make-up artist. And give your bridesmaid the job of looking after it on your big day. This way you can reapply when you need to.

5. Nude No-No
If you are choosing a nude make sure it is not the same colour as your skin – concealer lips are a no no.
6. Trial Run
Trial your lipstick before your big day; whether this is at your makeup artist trial or at home so you know you have chosen a colour you are happy with, which suits your look and suits your skin tone.

You may now kiss the groom!
They're such good tips, don't you think? Especially the nude one, I think I'm a tad guilty of “concealer lips” myself sometimes!
