I’m super intrigued at the thought of wearing red lipstick on my wedding day. I think I have the coloring to pull it off, but I’ve never done it before.In fact, I hardly ever wear ANY lip color- every time I do I feel like I look like a clown.
I think it’s because I have a very “gummy” smile- (see pic below).
Do you think a red lip would work on me or not? (Please be honest! I won’t be hurt, I swear!).
Also.. share pictures of red lipped brides! I’d love to see if anyone has a similar smile 🙂

This is not a picture of me, but I love this bride’s makeup, and she has red lips.
ETA: And I think you could totally pull of red lipstick!

I did!!! For some reason I got it in my head that I wanted to wear red lipstick & I NEVER have before!
Everyone can wear red lipstick, its all about finding the right shade. The best way to do this is at a Sephora or Ulta, where you can try it on right in the store. The last pic is faded b/c I forgot to re-apply, oops!

I think you totally should go for it, you just have to find the right shade of red. Go into Sephora or somewhere and ask for advice. Also, you’re very pretty, has anyone told you you look like Jessica Paré?

@Murphymcnasty: My shade looks great on olive/darker complexion girls and I wore Nars Fire Down Below.

@September29: you can totally pull it off!!!! You have a beautiful smile, and a red lip with your dark hair and lovely pale skin will be STUNNING!
You would look great with a cool toned red like Ellebot said. Something bright I feel!
