Wedding makeup tips: Lipstick picks from Fiore Beauty

Categories   Wedding Inspiration

Jaime Brooks, Founder of Fiore Beauty says it best, “Life is short, wear lipstick!”. Simple, straight to the point, and so true. Since they’re the guru’s on everything beauty we asked for some lipstick tips & picks to help out all you brides-to-be. We’ll let Jaime take over from here…

With summer weddings coming up, having a pretty pout is especially important so let’s take this opportunity to talk lips. You want to treat them nice with a treatment, make sure they are hydrated, prep for your color application, and choose the best ever lipsticks and glosses that make you one happy gal!

1. Treatment: Sometimes your lips are just dry & flaky despite lots of water and lip balm. Give them a little TLC with Sara Happ Lip Scrub.
2. Moisturize: A fabulous lip balm is such a luxury!  My favorites are… Malin and Goetz Mojito Lip Balm – so hydrating with special lipid technology that really works, and Laura Mercier Lip Balm SPF 15 – I really like this one because it feels great, smells like brown sugar and its basically a SPF chapstick that goes on like a lipstick because sometimes I don’t feel like a sticking my finger in a pot and other SPF chapsticks aren’t so lovely.

3. Prep for color: You want a very defined lip line for a pretty, done up lip. Instead of using lip liner, just extend your foundation, concealer, and/or powder a bit over your lip line and paying special attention to the corners or your mouth to get rid of any redness at your lip borders. Then when you apply your lipstick or gloss it will look super sharp and clean.
4. Color: The most fun part! You’ll notice that my lipstick recommendations are mostly NARS and MAC because of their formulations, shades, and color pay-off.  And here we go…

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Crayon in Dragon Girl (blue red) or Red Square (orange red). I swear by the formulation of these lip crayons, they stay put, pack a punch of super color, but don’t dry your lips out, and the colors just don’t get better.
MAC’s Lady Danger – A super poppy retro orange red.
NARS Scarlett Empress – A gorgeous berry red that flatters all skins and can be blended out for a sheer stain or worn boldly.
NARS Funny Face – A slightly iridescent fuchsia pink red that soooo good.

Now choosing for pink is what separates the girls from the women. It’s no easy task. Here goes…

MAC Candy Yum Yum – The most unique and special shade of hot pink though not for the faint of heart.
MAC Pink Nouveau – A lovely soft, Barbie-ish pink with enough sophistication that you don’t actually feel like Barbie.
NARS Cat Fight – A super sexy matte baby pink that is one step up from nude. Perfect on its own or as a firm base for your glamorous gloss.

wedding day lips

NARS Niagara – I love this color!  Its a great refreshing color that brings out blue eyes, green eyes, the pink in cheeks. Its a pop color for ladies who need to work their way into it or a neutral for ladies who love their pop lip.
MAC Costa Chic – It’s a bright, punchy, and fun milky coral!

Can’t forget about glosses! Super easy and perfect when you’re playing up your eyes.

Chanel Glossimer – Gorgeous, elegant, and nuanced shades with the most perfect formulation that doesn’t feel too sticky but still lasts.
Buxom Lip Polish – I love the brown sugar smell and I think the range of colors and finishes is fantastic. They look beautiful on.
Two Faced Glamour Gloss –  Super moisturizing and First Time is the perfect nude.

I love Nars Barabella, but am thinking of switching it up for the wedding day and trying Too Faced Juicy Melons. Such a fun pinky coral shade!

Stephanie on Mar 22, 2013

I'm crushing on NARS Niagra. I don't know if I'd wear it for my wedding - bright reds look really striking on my pale skin!

Abbey on Mar 22, 2013

Nars Catfight is subtle and I like that, but if I'm feeling bolder Scarlet Empress by Nars is perfect.

I am obsessed with the NARS matte lip crayons and love dragon girl! But I think I need something a bit more subdued for my wedding :)

I am still experimenting with lipsticks for my wedding, so I would love to try these out!!

Wedding Planner London - Soirée de Luxe on Mar 24, 2013

I personally think you can't go wrong with neutral peachy lipstick shades! The bottom line is to remember to still look like "you" on your wedding day, so stick to shades similar to what you usually wear! :)
