I am going with a 1940s wave for my wedding day hair, so that got me thinking about going the whole nine yards and wearing red lipstick. I am quite tan so I’m not sure how it would look….
But, I’m curious if the red would be too drastic with a white wedding dress. Did any of you gals rock the red on wedding day?

I love red lipstick with tan skin! I think you should go to Sephora and work with one of their people. They can probably pick the perfect color for you and show you exactly how to apply it so it looks right. Red is super tricky and you’ve got to OWN it and WORK it. But totally do it 🙂

I don’t know about rocking it, but the lipstick I am wearing is an off red called Raisin Glaze-more of a brick red, but my skin tone is still a bit on the tan side (and got more at my kids soccer game this past Saturday-it was in the 90’s here!)

I love red and they have a red to fit every skin tone so just hit up some makeup counters and they will help you. I won’t be wearing red on the wedding day though, fiance says he likes it better when my lips are ‘natural’ and even though I think I look better with red….he’s the one I want to look pretty for so….ya.
Make sure you get a formula that won’t bleed, especially if you’re not used to wearing dark lipstick.

I am planning on wearing red lipstick. There really is a red for everyone. I am asian so berry tones work well for me. Find out what your undertones are and then go from there.

I’m going with the 40s Hollywood glam look myself. I’m doing the side part with the big waves and pearls or art deco type jewelry. I’m planning on wearing red lipstick because red is a great colour on me. My skintone is rather light, I wont have much of a tan being in the northeast in May. However, there are so many shades of red, I’m sure you can find the perfect one for you even with a tan.

Thanks ladies! I will def be checking out Sephora to try to find my shade!
@Mrs. Bee: Mrs. Lilly looks awesome, in fact I LOVE that particular shade of red so much that I’m taking the pic with me to ask if Sephora has that color. Even though she is lighter then me, I can really picture myself in that shade, awesome!
@Noelle-a-Bella: thanks for the heads up about the no bleed lipstick, never would of known!

My makeup artist told me that you can either go with dramatic eyes or dramatic lips, but not both. Red is an awesome color for lips! But it means going with a more simple look for the eyes. Like a dark eyeliner and neutral or nude eye shadows.
