How do I choose a lip shade that works for me?
When choosing your perfect lipstick shade, you first need to determine if your skin is a warm, cool, or neutral undertone. You can typically determine this by looking at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If your veins are blue, you are likely cool-toned, so look for pinks, plums, or blue-based red shades. If your veins appear more green you likely learn more warm or neutral, so peach and roses tones will look amazing on you.
Figuring out what lipsticks work for you can be hard to do on your own! you need more help, you can inquire with your local make-up store associate or you can ask your wedding make-up artist to help you find your perfect shade!

4. Soft Feminine Pink Lip
For our romantic spring brides, a soft pink shade is a must-have on your wedding day! You can go with a more sheer shade for a softer look or go full coverage with a color like Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk for a glam look.
