Red lips; for the bold and the beautiful

A beautiful, bold, red lip is understated and underused, specifically on a lady’s wedding day.  Often times and definitely more recent, we tend to see and find our ladies flourish in a beautiful nude/pink tone lip color to seal the look right before walking down the aisle.  Why?  Well for one, comfort and two, well it’s beautiful – right?  OF COURSE!!  It is beautiful and while these next few paragraphs may urge you to open up and adventure into an undiscovered territory, it is most important for you to feel the most beautiful and comfortable on your wedding day.

As ladies who only like to venture out of our usual norm on occasion, we can totally relate but at the same time, we can totally urge our brides and others.  That said – why not venture out and be different?  Why not try something with a little more edge and a little more glam?  – like that red lipstick?

So, first, we task you, reach down, maybe way down, in that purse of yours to find that shade of red we all know everyone has and be a little adventurous.  Pair this with a fine line eye liner or even a little wing to create the boldest most refined look.  If you do this on occasion with your daily looks, then you have no excuses!

We love working with makeup artists and in chatting with a few, we found that they are dying for their brides to come to them asking for a little change up from the ordinary.

A Red Lip on your wedding day can be risky but we say that only for those who do not try it first. Take a look here at some show stopping looks and inspired by a few of our favorite makeup stylists.

We love hearing your thoughts! Tell us below, which of these colors will you be showing off on your summer vacay?

By now, we can pretty much all agree that the boho bridal trends have dominated the market for quite some time now. The effortless yet romantic feel has definitely had its time to shine, so if you’re looking to change things up with something a little unexpected, then we’ve got just the right ‘do for you!


With 90s fashion making such a strong comeback, it only makes sense that it trickles down into our current hair and makeup trends. We all remember the tight twists, braids and sleek ponytails that our mothers tortured us with (the butterfly clips made the pain worth it), but we definitely won’t take it THAT far on your wedding day! Although we’re throwing it back and living for the nostalgia of our childhood, we’re going to give you a modern bride take on some oldie but goodies that are worth considering. Take a look…


Keepin It Simple

Buns were EVERYTHING in the 90s. A lot of the times there were multiple (think Gwen Stefani in the early No Doubt days). We’re going to keep it simple with just one for a sleek yet untamed top knot! Add an embellished hairpiece to take it up a notch if your wedding is a tad more formal  



Au Natural

Tight ringlets were all we knew before beach waves took over. Step away from the flat iron and show off your gorgeous tendrils with a HIGH pony and cascading curls. There’s nothing like being able to embrace your natural beauty and being true to yourself on your big day!



The Bubble Pony

What a cute way to incorporate your playful personality, right?! Keep it modern and sleek, pull out some wispies for a less structured look or add some sparkle with something dreamy like these gorgeous star and pearl pins.



How’d you like our little walk down memory lane? We told you it would bring back some memories (we promise we’d never suggest something that you’d cringe over in your wedding photos in 10-20 years)! We hope this inspires you to take a step away from the low and messy styles we’ve got accustomed to and help start a new wave of bridal trends!  What do you think about our beloved 90s fashion making a full comeback? Let us know below!

If there’s one day that you want to glow up for, it’s definitely your wedding day.

Decisions, decisions… makeup is filled with so many options these days. Do you choose to go bold and beautiful, natural and fresh faced, or classy and sophisticated? Then, once you make that decision there are a few more things to decide. To airbrush or not to airbrush?  Do you use fake eyelashes or get eyelash extensions? And then there’s the lipstick: matte or shiny? and what shade?  We know, so many questions, right? But don’t you worry your pretty little heart we’ve got you covered on the lipstick front today!

Ok, first and foremost, we have to let you in on a little secret:  be sure to choose your lipstick shade during your makeup trial run.  Write down the exact brand and shade so you can purchase before your big day.  This helps with touch ups throughout the day.  Your lipstick is one of the first things to go and in order to avoid you having to dig into your own lipstick stash to “almost” match the original color, you might as well just have it handy.  One less thing to worry about:)

Lip shade is important because it completes the over all look. With that being said, we want to share with you the hottest colors from the top brands that are sure to give your face just the right amount of pop.

For all things makeup The Sparkle Bar is where its at.  We trust them personally and with our brides, so it was a no brainer for us to reach out to these experts to hear whats trending in lipstick land when it comes to weddings. We’re so excited to share the details that were given to us from Courtney, the lead makeup artist from The Sparkle Bar, about her top lipstick colors and trends for weddings. Here’s what she had to say.


Soft Lip
Don’t love a lot of color on your lips or do you love a soft lip? Don’t worry! To accomplish a subtle soft lip Courtney from The Sparkle Bar loves, Meet Matte Huges in Committed paired with Laura Mercier Lip Liner in Plumberry.

Peachy Pout
For the perfect peachy pout Mac Lipstick in Peach Stock with Laura Mercier Lip Liner in Hazelnut Tea and a touch of Laura Mercier Lip Gloss in Bonbon to add some pop. We think this is the perfect lip for our Spring Brides.

Nude Lip
When the bride wants to keep that lippie nude, Courtney loves to use Laura Mericer Lip Liner in Chestnut with Mac Lipstick in Viva Glam V. To add a pop to that look Courtney likes to add Lorac Highly Pigmented Lip Gloss in Bombshell. You can’t go wrong with a nude lip!

Bold Red Lip
If you’re looking for a bold look, a red lip is always a perfect option. Let’s face it, it’s your day, you mine as well shine bright girl. Courtney creates her favorite red lip look by mixing  Vivien by Laura Mercier with Laura Mercier lip liner in Ruby.

Berry Lip
Are you a bride that’s looking for a great fall berry color? We got you. Courtney suggests that you try Mac lip liner in Vino with Mac’s lipstick called Rebel. Together they make the perfect color for that beautiful berry lip that’s perfect for fall and winter weddings.


Primer Tip
All lipsticks that Courtney recommended are long wearing but lipstick doesn’t always stay on everyone. So, if you’re a person who always has problems keeping lipstick on Courtney highly suggests you use a primer. Her favorite lip primer is from Mac called Prep + Prime Lip. We’ve got to say that we think this is a good idea for any bride so that lipstick is one less thing you’re thing about on your wedding night.

We think we’ve covered any shades or styles of lipsticks but don’t hesitate to leave any lipstick or makeup questions you have for us or The Sparkle Bar below.
