Five of The Best – Bridal Lipsticks

By Meriel Killeen – Features Editor

Often the first thing we steal from Mum’s makeup bag as toddlers, lipstick holds a special place in our hearts. Unsurprisingly, this champion beauty product is equally as special in bringing together the perfect bridal look that is uniquely you.

But where to start!

The endless maze of lip finishes on the market can be confusing for any bride-to-be. Do you go for a hydrating gloss, a long-lasting matte, a fresh and natural sheen or a bold pout that packs a punch? Luckily we’ve done the hard work for you and hand-selected the Top 5 Bridal Lipsticks so pucker up and scroll down to meet your mouth’s perfect match…

Pillow Talk, Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution. RRP £25


Makeup artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury has created a universally flattering shade for all brides in Pillow Talk, which boasts a freshly-kissed warm rose hue, that leaves a natural matte finish without being too drying. As used on the angels for the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, you can be sure this gorgeous shade and its luxurious packaging will have you feeling out of this world on your special day. For that extra-plump pout, first trace the outline of your lips with Charlotte’s corresponding Pillow Talk ‘lip cheat’ liner.

Patisserie, MAC Cosmetics Lipstick Lustre. RRP £17.50


When it comes to lipsticks, MAC is the Godfather of beauty brands, and a trustworthy, reliable product is essential when it comes to your wedding glam. With a slightly more lightweight consistency than their matte formulas, MAC’s Lustre lipsticks like the beautiful Patisserie, give a hydrating, wearable feel on the lips, ideal for long wedding days. The clever little reflective particles in the formula also help give more definition and the appearance of volume in lips that are less full.

Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint in Bare Raspberry. RRP £26


Although the name may say ‘extra’ this genius lip product is anything but. Ideal for brides who want a natural ‘your lips but better’ look, Bobbi Brown’s lip nourishing lip tint provides a hint of juicy colour while enhancing your natural colour, guaranteeing a makeup look that’s completely you. Complement with a natural, glowy base and some delicate individual lashes this is the perfect understated lip for a natural, summer bride.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Redrum. RRP £16


For brides lusting after that classic Old Hollywood pout, look no further than this delicious shade from Jeffree Star. Heralded as the best liquid lip formula in the biz, this bold lip is guaranteed to last you all day and more importantly – not transfer onto your hubby-to-be! A perfectly crisp apple red, shades like Redrum with a blue rather than orange undertone, keeps teeth looking white for that mega-watt happiest-day-of-your-life smile.

And for something a little different…

Code Eight’s Lipstick Lab. RRP from £75


How many times has the back of your hand been a frustrated patchwork of swatches in the search for THAT perfect shade of nude, pink, berry, or crimson? Well how does this sound – working with one of Code Eight’s lip experts in their dedicated Lipstick Lab (think glamorous Bat-cave for make-up vigilantes) to create a custom lipstick, perfectly suited to your skin tone and eye colour? Maids of Honour take a note – you’d be hard pressed to find a bride that wouldn’t love this personalised experience to create their perfect pre-honeymoon hue. (Plus, creating your own one-of-a-kind lipstick definitely counts as ‘something new!’)


Prep your pout with a lip scrub that will ensure the smoothest application of your chosen colour. Scrubs from MAC that are made with a delicious concoction of brown sugar can even double up as a sweet treat to calm any pre-wedding jitters. Clinique also offers a range of lip scrub shades that provide a subtle lip stain while working their exfoliating magic…

If you’ve opted for a makeup artist on your wedding day, make sure at your trial to jot down the decided lip colour and purchase one for yourself. This way your lips can stay the intended-shade of kissable all day, long after your make-up artist has left.
