Now if you are a daring bride, a sultry bride, a rocker bride or even an anti-bride then you know that red lipstick is a glamxurious trend that seems to never go out of style. Anti-Brides have always been inspired by their favorite Hollywood and Rock and Roll vixens and they always step outside of the traditional pinks, peach or nude lipstick colors on their wedding day.
So many times makeup artists in beauty editors has preached to women to keep their eyes in cheeks to a minimal if your’re going to wear a bold lip color. But if the rest of your makeup is applied correctly, you can sashay down the aisle wearing a smoky eye, faux lashes and a cherry bomb red lipstick. Just be sure to find the correct shade of a red lip color for your skin tone. Below I created a cheat sheet to help you with your selection. On my model above I used Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Lacquer in #75 Dragon. A creamy texture rich color and shine that will last for hours.
Fair skin tones can wear blue-based red lipsticks. This means the color is a true classic red, with no hint of orange or pink.
Medium skin tones have more options. You can wear a true red to pinky-cranberry shade, an orange-red pops against a medium skin tone, especially when worn with bronzer.
Dark skin tones look better wearing a deeper, richer burgundy or warm brick shade. Dark skin tones should also opt for a purple-based red.
