For old hollywood/retro glam you will want dark dramatic lipstick. When I think retro I always think red lipstick. You are beautiful btw!

Wow!  I think it looks fantastic.  If you’re worried about lipstick moving you can always get one of those stay-in-place lipsticks.  My mom got her make up done for my wedding and then bought one of those to wear.  Honestly, they don’t move!

@sleepyrebel: I agree with Miss Tattoo, actually. When you said Veronica Lake, I was expecting red lipstick and actually did kind of a double-take when I didn’t see it.  You look completely gorgeous, definitely, but if you hadn’t said “retro glam” in your post, there is no way I’d know that’s what you were going for in those pics.  Is it obvious from your dress that that’s the style you’re after?

Is it posible to find a red listick that won’t rub off on him?  Even if it does, I’m sure he’ll get over it.  Stash wetwipes in his pockets!  I’ve seen brides wear red before and I always wondered about the rub-off, but I guess it wasn’t a huge concern for them?  I really don’t know what to suggest.

First off, you are gorgeous and the makeup looks awesom! BUT, I am going to be honest when I say that I do not see “retro glam” in it. It definitely doesnt scream Old Hollywood to me, at all. You cant have Old Hollywood without a dramatic lip, that what the era was about. You can get lip sealer to make the lipstick stay on, thats what I did. Worked awesome.

I would say that, to me, it has a more 60s/mod feel to it. The look says more Brigitte Bardot than Veronica Lake. The 60s were really the era for black eyeliner and a nude/pale lip.

I think you look great!!  but I also agree with the red lips…if red lipstick it much for you try a red gloss or a red lip stain so you just get a hint of the red

I think it looks beautiful and glam but not really retro at all.  I agree that for retro, you kind of have to go with red lips.

Try looking into lip stain- it won’t smear on your man and you can just put a gloss over it. I love the Benefit lip stain, it’s used for cheeks too and looks great
