Fall/Winter 2013 Bridal Makeup Tips: Smudge-Proof Lipstick
Start with a pencil, and with gloss and tend to the steps in between for long-wearing color.
Everyone at a wedding wants to kiss the bride.
To keep color in place, Lynn starts by covering the entire lip with lip pencil. She then applies lipstick, blots with powder, and adds gloss as the finishing touch.
“The whole key to making lips last is to layer on the color,” she says.
After several seasons of pale lips, bolder colors are making their way onto the palette.
“Lips are going both ways, from the nude, neutral lip to bright pinks and corals,” Sweringen says.
Her go-to product for lovely lips is Lip Fixation by Jane Iredale, which offers a full-line of cosmetics sold at Made Ya Look and other high-end salons. Fixation includes a durable lip stain in colors ranging from rich red to near natural, plus an accompanying lip gloss.
“The colors are gorgeous and long-lasting, plus it keeps lips soft,” she says.
Insider Beauty Tip: Make certain you have ready access to lip gloss throughout the celebration. While your lip color will remain in place through kisses and Champagne toasts, you will have to periodically add sheen to your lips.
