Finding the Perfect Lip Colour For Your Wedding Day: Embracing the Personal Choice

Your wedding day is an occasion where every detail matters, from the dress to the flowers to the makeup.

When it comes to your makeup, one of the most important decisions is choosing the right lip colour. Picking the perfect lip colour for your wedding day is not just about following trends; it’s a deeply personal choice that reflects your individual style and personality. In this blog post, we will explore why selecting the ideal lip colour is essential and provide some tips to help you find the perfect shade for your big day.

1.  Enhancing Your Features:

    Your wedding day is all about looking and feeling like the best version of yourself. The right lip colour has the power to enhance your natural features and bring attention to your smile. Whether you opt for a soft nude shade, a bold red, or something in between, it should accentuate your lips and complement your overall look.

2.  Reflecting Your Personality:

    Just as every bride has her own unique style, the lip colour you choose should be a reflection of your personality. Are you a romantic soul who loves to embrace soft, subtle hues? Or perhaps you have a vivacious personality and want your lipstick to make a statement? Whether you prefer a sophisticated and traditional look or one that pushes the boundaries, your lip colour is an opportunity to express who you are.

3.  Harmonising with Your Dress and Theme:

    Your lip colour should harmonise with your wedding dress and overall theme. Consider the colour palette of your wedding, the style of your dress, and the time of day to choose a shade that will complement your aesthetic. For example, a classic red lip can add a touch of old Hollywood glamour to a vintage-inspired wedding, while a soft pink works beautifully for a garden-themed or daytime ceremony.

4.  Confidence Booster:

    On your wedding day, you want to feel confident and radiant. Choosing a lip colour that you feel comfortable and glamorous in will give you an extra boost of confidence. When you look in the mirror, your perfect lip colour should make you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself, empowering you to walk down the aisle with grace and poise.

5. Professional Opinion:

While choosing the perfect lip colour for your wedding day is a personal decision, seeking the expertise of a professional makeup artist can be incredibly beneficial. During your Trial Preview appointment, I always advise my clients to bring their preferred lipstick for reference. I will suggest a colour during the trial, but sometimes seeing yourself with a different shade might take some getting used to. To ensure your comfort, I recommend purchasing the lipstick you desire for your wedding day and wearing it for a few weeks prior to the event. This allows you to become accustomed to the colour and feel confident when the big day arrives.


Selecting the perfect lip colour for your wedding day is an important aspect of your overall bridal look. It’s a personal choice that should make you feel confident, beautiful, and true to yourself. Take the time to experiment with different shades, seek professional advice if needed, and trust your instincts. Remember, whether you choose a classic nude, a bold red, or a unique hue, your lip colour should reflect your personality and make you shine on your wedding day.
