Personally I would do a softer color for lips.  I think the red lipstick would overpower…

I think this girl looks beautiful with red hair and red lips- and still looks soft and romantic. I say look how YOU feel best on your wedding day- your opinion is really the only one that matters.

I am a red head with pale skin also.  I would go with a more natural lip, or even a coral, but not red.  I have not seen it photograph very well and there are very few that can really pull it off well.  BUT, you might be one of those gals.  Without seeing you, I would say no, go natural.

@Idealistic_hippy28:  I say if you wear it all the time then go for it. Your wedding day look should look like you (but all dressed up). If you always wear it, and you wear “soft” makeup, will you look back on pictures and wonder why you decided to look different on your wedding day?

@Idealistic_hippy28:  I think red lips would be sooo vavavoom and I totally would do it.. Personally! Maybe have a few dress up days on days off to see how you like the look of having the reeeed lips with your hair. That’s what I’m doing because I can’t decide!

I like drama though. I think it would make you pop in a soft wedding. Here are some pics I found that I like… I just googled red heads with red lips, check it out and see if you like the look.

Oh, I LOVE a red lip! I think you should go for it! Just try a lot of shades and find one that works for you. I’m loving “dare you” by mac right now. It’s the perfect red and looks good on everyone.

@TeamAwesome:  As soon as I saw this topic, I thought of that pic! Awesome. 


I am also a paler red head…I am going with a vintage vibe as well but have been convinced out of a red lip, and into more of a coralypink. Kind of like a darker version of Nars’ Niagara. Still bright but not va-va-voom RED. (I would love to rock the MAC Russian Red! That being said, if it’s a look you go with everyday, I say do it!!
