Getting married next month and going for a Rita Hayworth sort of look for the wedding. I love red lipstick and wear it often and I really want to wear it at the wedding but I am worried that it is making me look washed out or weird or something. I need some advice. I would also consider doing a pinkish red (raspberry color) lipstick so long as it still has the boldness and vintage flair that the red brings. And the hair is likely to be trimmed up a bit so that when curled it just grazes the shoulders. Pass along your wisdom on these matters-I want to be sure I take a good photograph!
This was a test run on hair and makeup-will probably try to get more volume at the front than what is here. Sorry the pic is huge.
First off, congratulations on your impending nuptials! :)
I'm no MUA (hopefully Micheline will be able to see this and pop in!) but I think the look you're going for is definitely in the right direction! For me I probably would go with slightly matte lips for a wedding but I'm not entirely sure if that would show up best in pictures. I LOVE your eyes!
Why thanks! I have thought about matte lip color (I like that a lot) but am wearing a long-wearing lipstick so that I don't kiss the red off onto my fiance and I kinda have to do a gloss over it or the lips get incredibly dry/cracked/ugly. Still open to suggestions on this matter though.
Why thanks! That is quite the compliment! Much appreciated!
if you want to look at my hair and makeup in my pics that was for my wedding day and the pictures popped :)
I love what you have going on! You might want to try using a white liner on your inner lids to help make your eyes pop in the photos. Try it out and see what you think.
