Although trends come and go, we typically see a pattern in what looks and inspiration our brides bring in each year. With the 2023 season picking up momentum, we talked to our team of artists and discovered what lip shades are the most-loved and well used in their kits. Do any of these shades match your inspiration?
#5- Revlon ColorStay Satin Ink Liquid LipStick '007- Speak Up'
This is one of the most well-loved shades that every artist on our team carries. It is the perfect soft pink with the slightest hint of mauve. It is a super universal shade and looks soo dreamy on bridesmaids & brides wanting a 'natural' look.
#4- Maybelline Vinyl Ink Nudes Liquid Lipcolor 'Peachy'
This formula is the perfect satin lip stain. It isn't as matte & heavy as some long wearing lipsticks, and settles beautifully onto the lips. There are many shades to choose from, but 'Peachy' is the perfect warm pink to complement a bronzed look.
#3- MAC Satin Lipstick 'Ruby Woo'
Every skintone has their perfect red- however, MAC's Ruby Woo wins time and time again as a pretty univeral tone that works for many brides. A red lip is a staple for any classic or old-glam look, and this shade packs a punch.
#2- Makeup Forever Lip Pencil
This lip pencil is used by celebrity makeup artists around the world. This shade is an incredible warm brown nude with rose undertones. It is dark enough to bring some drama, but neutral enough that it can be layered with a lighter pink over top to bring depth and contrast. It's a shade that looks a bit different on each skin tone, and gives a nice pop for a sultry bride.
#1- Charlotte Tilbury 'Pillow Talk' Lipliner & Lipstick
This shade took Tiktok by storm last year, for good reason! Pillow Talk Original, & Pillow Talk Medium are two of the most flattering and bridal-esque shades we've found. They are soft and sultry, pink but not too pink, and all around beautiful formula. A staple classic color we choose time and time again.
All of these shades can be found at Ulta or Sephora. We opt for long-wearing formulas for our brides, however we do recommend picking up an extra tube of your lip color for your wedding day. No makeup is indestructible, so getting a touch-up of gloss or color before you walk down the aisle or after dinner is a must!
