Tip 1:  Get your lips into shape before your wedding day.  Every morning and every evening after you finish brushing your teeth use your toothbrush to gently exfoliate your lips.  Then put on your favourite lip balm. Within a couple of days you’ll have those dry chapped lips looking moist and luscious.  Soft supple lips are a must have for lipstick to last and look good for hours on your wedding day.

Tip 2:  On your wedding day before applying any lip colour to your lips take a moment to lightly powder over your lips using a finely milled powder.  Fan favourite?  Laura Mercier invisible loose setting powder.

Tip 3:  Line your lips using a lip liner in the exact shade of your chosen lip colour.  Do not go lighter or darker with your pencil or you risk your makeup looking dated.  Lightly blend out the edges of the pencil to soften the line.  Blend the pencil all over your lips and smudge into your lips using your finger.  Blend well and evenly.

Tip 6:  Re-line your lips again carefully ensuring you follow your lip line.  This will create a cleaner finished lip and help lock that lip colour in so that it has less chance of bleeding into your skin around the edges of your mouth.
