I love a pop of colour on a bride’s lips so I’m so happy to have Amy of Aimee Bridal Agency to share her take on this bridal makeup trend for 2014!

Winter has finally arrived and the weather couldn’t be better as the wedding season is upon us! The bridal make up trend for 2014 is bringing in hot, bold and fun colors focusing on the lips. Many brides prefer a natural look on their wedding day and whilst that can look pretty in real life, sometimes it fades in your photos. Don’t worry thought as I’m here to introduce to you the latest lip colors that will leave you looking fabulous in person and in photos on your big day!
Bright lip colors can be extremely glamorous, classic and sexy. Today’s bridal beauty trends are hugely influenced by celebrity red carpet and runway trends. Bridal designers like Amsale and Badley Mishka have been using these fun colors on their models in Fall 2013 and we are going to see this trend all the way through 2014.
Colors like fuchsia, red, hot pink and an orange red can add a little statement and personality to a traditional wedding look. They can be a pretty element with your evening gowns and even compliment your wedding theme color! But, you want to be careful about overdoing your eyes and cheeks if you are choosing a bright lip color. Bright lips look best with natural eye makeup. For eye makeup, keep colors neutral and add eyeliner for definition and false lashes (especially for our Asian faces) and keep the focus on the lips.

For the cheeks, use bronzer on contour of the face to bring out your features and then apply a light sweep of soft pink or coral on the apple of the cheeks to bring everything together. Now take a look at my picks of products to help you achieve these gorgeous looks!
