Create the Perfect Dark Lip With These Tips & Tricks

The go-to lips for most brides are pale, natural pinks or bold reds. But for something a little less expected, why not consider a dark lip for your wedding day? It’s dramatic, eye-catching, and makes a bold fashion statement.

Keep in mind that a darker lip will require more frequent re-application, and generally looks best when paired with a neutral eye and low-key makeup on the rest of your face. And, while some shades will work on most skin tones, others are only flattering against certain complexions. There’s no way to know if a “perfect” lipstick will look great on you until you try it on in person—and make sure to take a few selfies in natural light and with a flash to see how the colour will photograph on your big day!
