Is there anything more classic than a dramatic bold red lip? You in a stunning white dress, your man in a classic tux and a truly memorable kiss make for quite the pretty picture. Try out these suggestions on your big day to ensure a look that’s chic, classic and timeless. It’s time to pucker up to these pretty shades!
1. For The Lipstick Shy
For the lipstick shy among us (me included), a creamier liquid lipstick might be the best way to first test out a true red. Plus, it won’t dry out your mouth like some actual lipstick formulas can. This long-lasting version means your lips will stay glossy red from kiss to cake.

2. For Quick Color
The trick to getting traditional lipstick to stay put is to line and layer color in layers, but who has time for that? Look for a highly pigmented kind so you don’t have to reapply every hour. This one is an intensely-colored stick, so there’s no need for more than one step — just swipe and go back to your party!

3. For Seamless Precision
Lip liner is tough: a too light or too dark shade can be obvious when worn under your actual lipstick. To prevent this beauty problem, try a clear version. It’ll keep color from feathering and smearing without any tell-tale signs you’re wearing liner.
