Bold Shiny Lips On Your Wedding Day

There’s nothing more glamxurious than a bride walking down the aisle wearing a bold color lipstick or lip-gloss with a high shine. Strong, glossy lips can be worn on your wedding day. Though usually more appropriate for evening, bolder brides can opt to stand out with a shimmering pout.
If you are going for a classic, dramatic makeup look be sure to keep the rest of your makeup minimal. The wet look with a high impact shine is very sexy and your sparkling lips will be paparazzi ready.

Smashbox Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss $19.00
Lancôme JUICY TUBES JELLY – Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss $18.00
L’OREAL HIP Shine Struck Liquid Lipcolor $12.00
NYX Lip Gloss w/Mega Shine $5.99

Snooki Guidette Pouf on Your Wedding Day

written by Connecticut Celebrity Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis
Hollywood actress on the big screen and television use to dictate the must have hair trends. The Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Victoria Beckham tresses are no longer being asked for on wedding days. Reality shows stars like Kim Kardashian, Lauren Conrad, The Real Housewives have become the new fashion icons with makeup and hair trend request from brides. Now, Jersey Shore’s Snooki’s trademark teased crown pouf has made its way down the runway and the wedding aisle this season. This hairstyle can be soften and given a more elegant look still keeping the voluminous pouf and twisted ponytails.
For destination brides, adding an exotic flower would complement this guidette look and finish the style. Make sure to use L’OREAL Elnet Satin hairspray to hold your hair in place as you and the groom fist pump on the dance floor.
