The Beauty Bible: Lipstick Of The Month… Glamorous Goth
Now that Autumn is in full swing we are feeling it is time for a change from the nude & pink hues we have being looking at in previous posts, a more Autumnal Colour Palette seems appropriate for this time of year! Dare to be brave? Go bold with your wedding lipstick… and by bold we mean lovely plum and purple shades.
Take a quick look at our Autumnal Mood Boards and you will know exactly why we just love darker bold colours paired for your Autumn or Winter wedding!
Deep, dark and striking… a luscious black-cherry lip’s our favourite way to turn heads. So why do we love it? This look is all about creating drama, but it can also be dialled up or tuned down to match your mood, or of course your wedding palette.
Feeling fearless? Let your lips do the talking… as seen in Dior, where almost black pouts look gorgeous in matte colours. Or, for a more understated feel, head to the less scary end of the Gothic scale and opt for an easier to wear cherry lip stain.
Start by prepping your lips with Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base… this new innovative lip base which instantly smooths lips and sets lipstick to ensure a long-lasting make-up hold for a perfect finish. A luxurious moisturising transparent primer for your lips, It works both a treatment, make-up and serves as a primer for lipstick, while smoothing and nourishing the lips.
Oh, and the vanilla smell it gives off is just lovely! Doesn’t this just sound fab for your wedding day routine?!
Next line your lips with Mac Cosmetics Lip Liner in Burgundy. This will give you some serious staying power and keep lips looking sharp all day!
Go dark and dramatic with Christian Louboutin Very Prive Velvet Matte Lip Colour. This luxurious matte finish lip stick has drama written all over it, not only does the packaging look gorgeous but the lip colour is long lasting and highly moisturising! Alternatively, for those seeking a more glossy finish we recommend Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Berry Pop!
Our pro tip? If the colour is too harsh for your beautiful bridal look, gently swipe and soften lip edges with a cotton bud, and apply a small amount of balm to the centre to diffuse the drama.
However you wear it, you can be sure you will be looking so glamorous and so on trend… for more details why not ask your make up artist? They will be able to suggest colour that will just suit you down to a T, and obviously know the best tips and tricks to keep your lippy on all day long!
