I am often asked what bridal lipstick colours I have in my professional kit. The truth is there are probably too many to list! That said, there are definitely a few favourites in there, so I decided to write this post to share some real favourites that us pros can’t live without.
I teamed up with fellow makeup artists, Sarah Abbott and Kirsten Sare, to bring you the must have lipsticks we use in our bridal makeup kits. These are tried and tested by us on hundreds of brides for longevity, colour, texture and all round gorgeousness.
Thats not to say these are the only ones you should buy, you must always keep experimenting and seeking out new colours and textures to advance your artistry, but a few of our recommendations may help you in the beginning.
Sarah’s all time favourites are:
Illamasqua matte lipstick in Intimacy
Nars gloss in Orgasm
Mac Pro long wear lip cream in Overtime
OCC lip tar – all pinks and rose shades!
Nars velvet matte lip pencils – all colours
Kirsten prefers sheer textures and loves;
Clinique Rose Taffy
Clinique Nude Pop
Kiko lipstick in 02
MAC Russian Red for a daring bride
Both Kirsten and I share a love for Mac Cosmo too, this is a beautiful soft neutral pink.
So, last but not least I’ll add my favourites to the list;
Mac Viva V
Mac Sandy B
Dior Addict in 635
Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour in Nude Beige
I have to add Mac Ruby Woo for an all out vintage glamour makeup look.
There are many more and quite often I will mix shades, but with a few of the above in you armoury, you will at least have a good starting point for finishing off that perfect bridal look. x
