Learn to get your wedding-day makeup exactly right

Interested in a demure mouth? Go with peach and pink lipstick, and add a shot of glam with gloss. The latest lipstick formulations are demi-matte; they deliver a satiny finish without being gloppy or sticky. They feel good on your lips because they contain moisturizer, says Berta. If you choose a darker color, the best way to avoid bleeding is to line and fill in lips with a neutral pencil. Brush on lipstick and blot with tissue, then reapply. Another way to preserve color: Apply a stain, then add gloss, says Berta. When the gloss comes off, the stain is still going strong.
