Meet the hues of the summer season! If you're getting married this summer, consider these vibrant wedding lipsticks that would look striking against the backdrop of beach weddings and destination "I dos."

Besides a flowy, lightweight wedding dress nothing goes with the seasonal scenery at beach weddings quite like a bright and vibrant lip shade. Can you think of anything more perfect than walking down the aisle wearing a statement lip color that matches the seaside sunset? Just take the advice of a wedding makeup expert: “My go-to vibrant lip colors are bright fuchsia, gold-peachy pinks, or corals," says Sally Duvall, a bridal makeup artist. "I think they flatter most skin tones, especially if there is a bit of a tan.”

Nervous about choosing a bold lippie for your beach wedding? The secret to selecting the perfect wedding lipstick is all in the formula. “Going with a lip stain kind of product will save you time and stress because your lips will stay put and won't smudge,” explains makeup artist Andrea Tiller. And no matter what lip product you end up choosing, try adding a lip liner to complete the look and maximize the color's staying power. “If you use lip liner, make sure that it’s waterproof and smudge-proof,” Tiller notes.

To keep your wedding lipstick mess-free from the ceremony to the reception, try not to add too many coats and layers. “The key to a bright color is to blot religiously. Bright colors can get messy, so you want the color layer to stain the lips," explains Duvall. "Take a Q-tip to the edges of the lips to blend and ensure no harsh lines or smudging. It also gives the lips a casual feel, as opposed to an overly done, heavy-lipped look.”
