Now regular readers will know that when it comes to wedding lips, I love any colour as long as it’s not boring beige! For me, the vampier, the better. I mean look at the bride in this Glitzy Secrets picture. How stunning is she? Against a white dress I think there’s nothing more beautiful than a precisely-painted rich plum or deep merlot mouth. And who cares that dark lipstick is more high maintenance than barely-there gloss – that’s what a Maid of Honour with a bunch of tissues is for. Believe me, your photos will thank you for ‘coming on strong’ with your statement pout with clout.
Even after so many years as a Beauty Ed/lipstick lover I still get a whirlwind flutter of excitement when the new lip colours hit the counters. So pardon the pun, but if you fancy getting your gums around some plums (geddit?) scroll down through my fave eight va va vampy lip shades…
MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Hellebore, £17.50
For a lush purple pout that feels as good as it looks. Would leave a great kiss print on your hubby!
If ever a lipstick had me at Hello, it’s this deepest, darkest burgundy. It screams
Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 Hour Lipstick in Red-Outable, £7.99
Settling happily in my make-up bag, this sophisticated red feels dreamy to apply and promises to outlast lots of kissing and champagne-sipping
Four seriously sexy mini lippies in one tin, but this Lusty Rose is my favourite, not least for the name. It combines a liner and lip colour so gets a definite ‘I do’ from me
Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in Choquant, £26
A soft, matte stamp of sophisticated of claret. J’adore!
Too Faced La Creme in Divine Wine, £18
I’m drunk in love with this rich Bordeaux (as Beyonce once didn’t sing…)
Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Creme Lipstick in 403, £17
Classic and oh-so-classy. What’s not to love about a pillar-box pout?
MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Firecracker, £3
An unbelievable price-tag for such a berry nice lipstick!
