Pink Pout; A Trend For Fall Brides

Bright, Barbie-pink lips were the big trend this summer and this fall the juicy-pink colored lip trend will stay for brides. Many destination brides will be on the beach somewhere in Hawaii, Mexico, South Pacific or the Caribbean wearing a variety of pink lip colors. Fuchsia pink (OCC Lip Tar in Anime) is a fun, girly lip color that, thankfully, looks great on all skin tones. Bubble gum pinks to more vibrant pinks are ever so yummy, especially when topped off with a touch of lip gloss.

When taking that pink-lady pledge, don’t forget to coat your nails (PritiNYC in Fire Candle) with an electric tropical nail polish. It’s definitely so ultra femme. Plus, the groom will always say, “I DO” to a sexy vinyl, shiny pink pout.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar $12.50
PritiNYC $10.00
