For the Moms: How to Choose a Flattering Lip Color for Your Child's Wedding Day
A little lipstick can go a long way.
There is a lot to consider when choosing a lip color for your child's wedding day. In addition to choosing the right formula (long-wear is the way to go if you're nervous about feathering or bleeding), you'll also want to select a flattering color. After all, it's important to find a hue that helps you pop in photos, but still feels subtle and timeless. That makes the task of choosing a great lip color for your child's wedding easier said than done. To help, we're sharing what to look for in a product, plus a few of our favorite colors to try.
Try a neutral with a touch of shimmer.
Finding the right lipstick is hard, and if you've looked at several different colors and feel like you're not getting a look you love, ask the makeup artist for something neutral with a little shimmer. One universally-beloved option? Laura Mercier's Stickgloss Lip Color in Purple Haze. It's the perfect pinky-violet shade with just a touch of shine, and since it's a "stick-gloss," you'll get sheer color that's applied as the perfect middle ground between a lipstick and a lip gloss.
Grab an all-in-one product.
Part of the reason you may not be liking the lip color you're wearing is because it's not the right one for you. While you can work with a makeup artist to get a better color match, choosing a universally flattering product (read: one that's designed to look good on everyone) might be the way to go. And if that product offers everything you need-balm, gloss, stain, and lipstick-all in one, even better. That's why it's worth trying out IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Color in Je Ne Sais Quoi, a four-in-one product that works with your body chemistry to create the perfect pink for you.
Find a classic you can twist.
One of the best things any woman can do is find a lip color you love, then learn how to tweak it for different occasions. One great example is Stila Stay-All-Day Liquid Lipstick in Baci, a great neutral that goes on with a creamy matte finish. Paired it with a sheer gloss for a light, natural, or go with a dark liner and gloss to transform it into a deeper neutral that still works with your skin tone.
