Whether you’re a minimalist, maximalist or a mix of both- Every woman should own a classic red lipstick. Nine times out of ten, a nude lip is my go-to but the iconic Grace Kelly and classic Sofia Vergara’s infamous red bridal lips inspired me otherwise. The best wedding makeup decision? Rocking a red lip that will stand the test of time.
I rounded up 17 timeless, classic shades of red lipsticks that will have you channeling your inner Hollywood, STAT. (The Charlotte Tilbury red liquid lipstick I wore on my wedding day is linked below, along with 16 other top picks)
Red lipstick can quickly become “too much” if the rest of your makeup, hair and outfit aren’t balanced properly. Since red lipstick was the main focus of my look, my makeup artist(details below) accentuated my skin and brows, while leaving my eyes more natural. No matter what beauty look you decide on for your wedding day, just remember: Striking balance is KEY.
