Did you ever think that the tube of lip gloss you routinely applied throughout your fifth period math class would be a part of your wedding day?
There’s no shortage of wedding day makeup options for brides. Along with the dress, a soft smoky eye or sharp cat eye can help a bride show off their personal style. However, picking the right lipstick color can be a struggle. There’s so many shades and finishes to consider, plus how high-maintenance your choice is going be on the big day. Sure, a matte red lipstick will give a bride an Old Hollywood vibe, but it also requires touch-ups and making sure it stays off their teeth.
Brides everywhere rejoice. If you’ve been flip-flopping on whether or not to go bold or subtle with your lipstick color, Pinterest’s 2018 wedding beauty trends will help you make your decision. According to this year’s report, brides can’t stop Pinning lip gloss—yes, the same lip product you exclusively wore as a teenager. Searches for bridal makeup looks featuring gloss are up 459%.
