What Your Lipstick Says About Your Marriage


Chico Hay Asaki/BRIDES

Forget the tea leaves—BRIDES magazine's favorite way to predict the future sits right in your makeup bag. Untwist your go-to lipstick, match it to one of the shapes below, and learn what married life holds in store.

1. Close to original shape
Your wedding? A dream. The honeymoon? Bliss. But don't get so wrapped up in coupledom that you lose interest in friends—put a girls' margarita night on your weekly agenda.

2. Flat top, concave
With your penchant for excitement (that treasure hunt that led him to bed was brilliant), the next few years are going to be wild. What to keep working on: trust and consistency.

3. Rounded, smooth top
With the nicest guy in the world as a spouse, life doesn't get sunnier or more peaceful. Just shake things up now and then to keep it interesting: Naked Tuesdays, anyone?

4. Sharp angles on both sides
Your home will be the gang's social hub—wine tastings, book-club dinners, BBQs. Let him make half the decisions, and he'll continue to worship the ground you walk on.

5. Angled, curved tip
You're bursting with plans for your new life (paint kitchen/adopt dog/buy kayak), and the adventure is just beginning—it only gets better when you stay open to his ideas, too.

6. Tip with a rounded point
He loves your energy, your warmth, and your devotion to family. Your reluctance to compromise over little things? Not so much. Flexibility will help build a strong marriage.

7. Sharply angled tip
A passionate personality keeps the sheets sizzling, and your decisiveness will come in hand (no waffling about baby names). Learn to chill—every couple needs some downtime.

8. Flat top
Spotless home, holiday cards sent out December 1—you've got it down to a science. Now loosen up a bit (will socks on the floor really kill you?) and live happily ever after.
