Bold Lips: Inspired by Janelle’s Bridal Makeup
Janelle and Jabari were married at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel with F8 Photo Studios there to capture the special moments. We had a great time with Janelle, as artist and stylist Jennifer H was there to create Janelle’s bold bridal look.
Bold lips can be high-maintenance and a scary thing to consider on a day where there will be so many pictures taken, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try it. In a previous post we explained the important of a hair and makeup trial. If you are considering a bolder lip, try it out and see if you like the way it looks in pictures and if you still like how it looks hours later.
For any event that you might have your makeup done, you can count on the makeup artist to know how to make your bold lips look flawless and last. If you are looking to try it on your own, here are some Pro Tips for pulling off bold lips!
– Exfoliate your lips and moisturize them about an hour prior to the lipstick application. It is not necessary, but it helps the color go on smoothly.
– Use lip liner. This will keep the color from feathering out onto the skin around your lips. Keeps it neat, which is extra important with a bold lip because mistakes and smudges are much more noticeable.
– After you have put the color onto your lips, blot with a tissue and then reapply the color. This will help prolong the wear of whatever fabulous shade you have chosen.
