Fall brides, take note: It's totally okay to wear coral lips after Labor Day. Whether you go for a soft wash of peach or a bright, punchy lipstick, this universally flattering shade looks amazing year-round with a soft smoky eye and dewy, glowing skin. Plus, of course, bright coral pops against any wedding gown! We rounded up the best new shades out this fall.

Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint in Poppin' Poppy
You can't go wrong with this sheer, hydrating lip tint: a single layer yields a barely-there hint of peachy balm, while a heavier hand makes for a bolder coral lip. No matter how you choose to wear it, the buildable color means you can find the coverage that's perfect for your wedding day. $17, available at Cinique

Sisley Phyto-Lip Shine in Sheer Coral
This gorgeous, semi-sheer color does not budge. While most balms and tints fade with each sip of champagne, this formula miraculously lasts. Darker-skinned brides can swipe on a few layers for a brighter coral, and if you've got fair skin, just one layer is enough to pop. $52, available at Sisley Paris

Topshop Lips in Infared
Daring brides, we found your lipstick. Pair this red-hot matte lipstick with a clingy satin sheath and killer sparkly heels, and get ready for the coolest photo-booth shots ever. $12, available at Topshop

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush
This shea-packed stick goes on like a balm, but looks way more pigmented on your lips. Over time, the bright hue fades to a softer wash of color as it softens and moisturizes. Bonus: It smells amazing. $8, available at Pixi

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Blissful
If you steered away from gloppy, sticky lip gloss at your makeup trial, now's the time to give it a second chance. Tarte's formula isn't one bit drying, thanks to emollients like vitamin E and jojoba oil. And the shade, created from mineral pigments, steers much closer to soft peach than bright orange, making it perfect with a soft smoky eye and a romantic updo. $19, available at Ulta
