A Bride's Guide to the Perfect Lipstick

Monday, July 25, 2016

For the lipstick-obsessed brides, the perfect lip color for your wedding day can be almost as important as the shoes you wear. But what shade do you pick? A perfect neutral? A romantic pink? Something bold? Here are a few recommendations I'd suggest based on your personal style. But whatever shade you choose, you'll be the perfect bride.

For the Au Naturale Bride:
Dior Addict Lip Glow in 001

For the Glitzy Bride:
Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in Sugar Sugar

For the Effortlessly Romantic Bride:
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect

For the Whimsical Bride:
MAC Lipstick in "Snob"

For the Playful Bride:
MAC Lipstick in "Pink Pigeon"

  For the Vampy Bride:

The perfect lip color has to be paired with a beautiful, white smile!

With my wedding coming up, I've been religiously whitening my teeth at least once a week. Recently, I've been trying Colgate's Optic White line and I've been gradually seeing a whiter smile. Even my fiancé has noticed! I especially love their Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen. It such a cool idea - the pen gives you the freedom to whiten your teeth every morning without being tied down to timers and whitening strips. Just swipe on and go!

Because I've been enjoying these products so much, I'm giving away a Colgate Optic White kit to one of my readers! Enter through the widget below before Friday, July 29th at 11:59pm CST. The winner will be announced on Twitter on Saturday, July 30th.

  1. Yay Carly! I need white teeth.

  2. My wedding day is definitely far, far away but I am OBSESSED with the Snob shade by Mac! It's subtle but has enough color to look great in pictures! I can't WAIT to see everything you're using for your big day!
