Great Day! Wedding season is around the corner. Get Excited!!!  Lipstick is a must for any bride, regardless of how much other makeup she wears. It is a good idea to wear long-lasting lipstick so that the bride won't have to worry about when to re-touch or re-apply. Many different brands offer lasting lip color in a variety of shades  With that being said here are a few ideas to get your lip color to last on your wedding day:

1. Conceal the entire lip area, everthing from the natural lip line to the actual lip. This will create a more perfect edge for photos by hiding any discoloration you might have just outside your lip line, as well as creating the perfect canvas on which to apply your lip color.

2. Line the outer edges of the lips with lip liner, then fill in the entire lip area with liner. This is the first line of defense in getting your lip color to last. Lip liner has a drier texture than lipstick, so it lasts longer.

3. Next, apply a soft pretty lipstick that looks natural yet still defines the lips. Then, take a tissue and gently blot your lips. This will remove the moisture from this layer yet leave you with a deposit of pigment. Next, reapply your lipstick; this time, do not blot. Layering color like this will give you double the pigment deposit, thus increasing how long the color will last.

4. Finish with a dot of lip gloss in the center of the lips to attract light and hightlight your smile for photographs.
