10 Fantastic Lipsticks For Fall Weddings

The Corals

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Coachella Coral.
Charlotte’s K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks come in 10 modern and chic shades, and make your lips look absolutely luscious. This shade is perfect when your wedding has autumnal orange accents, but you don’t want a full orangey mouth. Corals are also wonderful against pinks when you don’t want a blue based shade, giving you a little color pop without being overwhelming.


Another great coral lip choice for your wedding day is 
MAC Cremesheen Coral Bliss


The Nudes

One of the easiest lips to wear on your wedding day is a nude lip.

The rules are: don’t go paler than your own lip color, and balance the nude lip with a bolder eye so that you don’t look washed out.

My favorite nude lips for fall are

Christian Dior ‘Nude Rouge’ in Charnelle 459


Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Lip Color in Pensive


Winter Pinks

Pink lips are lovely, but for a fall wedding you need to step away from the perky, summery pinks and choose instead a pink with more depth and resonance.

Try Lipstick Queen Sinner lipstick in Pink


Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu or in Hyde Park


The Reds

A red mouth can be incredibly alluring. Winter reds have extra depth and magic. They can make your complexion look like it is glowing, can make your eye color spark, and are incredibly beautiful and sexy.

For your wedding day avoid glossy reds, opting instead for matte reds and longwear reds that your groom isn’t scared to kiss!

My favorite red lipstick at the moment is Charlotte Tilbury’s

Matte Revolution in Red Carpet Red


Charlotte’s matte lips aren’t that heavy, flat, dull finish that you find in so many red lipsticks, instead they have a luminous vibrancy that makes the lip look alive and exciting.

Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in Scarlet Red


MAC Matte Lipstick in Chili


Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in 404 Spice

How To Wear The New Season’s Bold Lip Colors

Bright, bold, commanding lip colors can be overwhelming to wear.

If you normally wear nudes/neutrals/soft hued lip colors

a bold lip can be downright scary.

But bold, bright colors can be super flattering.

They give you an instant “wow” factor,

turn a tired girl into a vibrant girl,

are youthful and fun,

they make you sparkle,

and are a super quick way to look totally pulled together.

If you’re wearing a bright lip the rest of your makeup can be dialed down, so they also make getting ready a speedy assignment.

With a new breed of luscious saturated and not too shiny shades of red, fuchsia and pink hitting the market, now is a great time to venture out of your comfort zone and take a walk on the bright side.

There are a few tricks to nailing this look though,

so let’s take a look at how to wear the new season’s bold lip colors.

Beautiful, bold lip

1. Know Your Undertone

Try on some different shades at the cosmetic counter. See if you look better with a blue undertone or a more coral undertone.

Most of us look good in pink, so find your perfect pink and then look at other shades with that same undertone.

Smelling a good sale, the girls behind the counter will fall all over themselves to help you!

2.Condition Your Lips

Dry, chapped, flaky lips don’t look particularly enticing at the best of times, and look especially bad with a bold lip color.

Gently exfoliate your lips and hydrate with a good lip balm a decent amount of time before doing your lips.

Immediately prior to applying your lipstick, gently blot your lips to remove any surface slipperiness.

3. Bounce The Light

If you have a smaller or thinner upper lip you can make it look more fleshy by popping a tiny amount of luminizer or highlighter just into the top of the cupid’s bow, and then blending it in with your finger. Light will hit it and bounce off, making your lip look fuller and slightly bitten.

4. Line Your Lips

With a bold lip statement you need a defined lip shape. Either use a pencil that matches your lipstick, or use a nude pencil that matches your skin.

If you are going to build the lip by going outside the natural lip line, trace the liner back inside the lip prior to reaching the corners of your mouth – otherwise you look like you have food stuck there.

5. Use A Lipbrush

A lip brush presses the lipstick into your lip, and allows for precision when defining your lip shape.

Apply the first coat, blot, and apply a second coat.

6. Minimize The Rest Of Your Makeup

With a bold lip you generally want to soften the rest of your look.

Let the bright lip color make the statement for you. Keep your eye makeup neutral but defined, give the cheeks a soft bronzy glow and define the brow to keep your look balanced.

7. Whiten Your Teeth

A bright lip needs white teeth. Keep your teeth polished up and gleaming white to get the maximum out of your look.
