Lip stains have become the go-to product for brides, not just because of their variety of colors, but also because of their long-wear, non-transferring quality and natural look. The stain lets you drink, eat and kiss with out the fear of smudging or transferring color on your new husband or white dress.
Whether you want a natural, rosy, flush; coral pout; or rich crimson lip on your wedding day, a stain can tackle the job and stay put. We are lucky to be at the point where non-drying formulas in a variety of textures like creams, gels, liquids (and even marker form) have been developed, making it a no-brainer to reach for a lip stain instead of lipstick.
Lip Stains are perfect if you’re having a Summer wedding – they help you avoid a hot mess with lipstick that can’t take the heat and tends to melt and feather outward. A stain looks natural by applying color into the lip instead of just on top of it. The best way to prep your lips for a stain is to exfoliate with a lip scrub or buff with a warm wash cloth. It’s key not to have chapped lips, moisturize everyday leading up to the wedding to have a supple, picture perfect pout.
