In the Nude - Pale Lips for your Destination Wedding

Many of our favorite celebrities have graced magazines pages wearing a nude lip color. Seductive nude lips are always in season for destination weddings and brides can be just as glamxurious with color stained lips, especially when paired with a dramatic or smoky eye.

When wearing a pale pout, you have to care for your lips making sure their moisturized to be sure it will wear well and look smooth and kissable. I prefer to use Sara Happ lip scrub to remove extra dry skin but a basic soft toothbrush and petroleum jelly can also do the trick. I apply a foundation or a concealer completely over the lip. This way, I have a fresh canvas and can outline the lip to the shape I like. When selecting the correct shade in the nude family I usually select; Pinks for fair and medium skin, and beige for medium dark to darker skin. I then apply Sara Happ lip slip balm to keep the lips hydrated.

Go flesh toned on the lips whether it's cream, matte, or glossy and you will be noticeable on your wedding day.
