If you have read my blurb on my hair trial, here, you’ll see I have blonde hair and pale skin with red undertones. I had a very neutral lipstick for my makeup trial, and I kind of want to do a more glam, but not too over the top (as in still semi-natural), pin up, reddish lipstick for the day of (with the option of changing into the neutral lips later on– I luckily already own the lipstick my makeup artist used for my portraits!).
Please share your pictures, thoughts, advice, etc.! Even if you’re not a blonde bride, feel free to post your pictures!

Oh how I wish I could pull off red lipstick. I’m blonde and I’ve tried it, but I just can’t seem to rock it. Maybe I just haven’t found the right shade yet…

red lipstick is TOTALLY a do
the secret is to check the undertones:
if you have pink undertones in your skin, get a liptick with blue undertones (you can ask the makeup artist at the counter or google)
if you have yellow undertones in your skin, get a lipstick with more orange undertones
a true red looks always good
i buy EVERYTHING online except for lipstick. go to a sephora if you have one nearby and jut try on lipsticks until you find a perfect one!

I am blonde and I have found the orangish red ones look best on me, instead of the pinker reds, and I am a pale olive skin tone!

@llgraham: right, cause your skin as olive (thus yellow) undertones. it’s not really about how dark or light your hair or skin are.
i’m pretty pale but yellow, not pink.

I am a blonde with supppper pale skin and it took me (what felt like) a million tubes of lipstick to find the right red. I know personally for me, blue based/toned red was the key but it does really 100% depend on your skin tone.

@LaviniaRose2013: I am a blonde, and now that I’m over 40, for some reason RED has become “my look” haha! I don’t know WHY exactly it took me this long but Im addicted, and its my signature look.
daily wear is Clinique Angel Red, a very nice sheer, blue based red.
for my wedding and for special occasions, NOTHING beats Chanel Ruby Lite long wear lip color-gloss sealer top coat combo. It looks amazing, feels great, and is downright irritating as heck to try to remove…..which is fine by me cuz I really value a true “hurricane proof” red lip!!!
PP was right, it’s allllllllll about undertones. EVERYONE can wear a red!!! Get to a dept store with multiple counters and just start trying colors!!! 🙂

@Sweetjennygirl: Ohhhh…I have to check out that Chanel red. I wear red a lot in the evenings, but I’m hoping to find a toned-down red, maybe even a berry, for my wedding. I’ve never worn any Chanel lip colors, but everything I keep reading about “best” makeup for weddings recommends Chanel for lips!

Yes! I have pink/red undertones, so the blue based reds always look best on me. I want to look elegant and glam and timeless, but that natural lip is really just not doing it for me! It’s gorgeous on some people, but I ALWAYS have some kind of color on my lip (not necessarily bright, maybe just a dark pink nudey color, but something that shows up). I think if done correctly, it can be all of those things listed above 🙂 Thanks ladies!

@LaviniaRose2013: I think blondes with red lips look GREAT. I don’t know how you’re doing your eyes, but if you’re going for a bold lip, make sure to keep your eye makeup very neutral. I’m picturing a thick wing with very subtle brown in the crease 🙂 Just a recommendation. I’m a MUA so I like to throw my two cents in 😉
I know shes not blonde but I love this look. Maybe with the crease a little lighter though!
