Shivani Singh, 25 Nov 2019

The winter wedding season is in full swing and it's time for brides to embrace it with an experimental flare. And since wedding makeup is all about setting a statement, what's more, memorable than dark lip makeup for brides? 

Playing with darker colours is always fun, as they're both bold and fetching. They not only make a bride look more attractive but also gives confidence and adds warmth to the bride's face to match the gloomy weather. While it's a bit tricky to pull off a dark shade, we all love brides who boldly experiment. Ranging from cult favourites like deep reds to quirky glitter flips and alluring purples, Indian brides have proved time and again that there isn't a single colour they cannot execute without looking ravishing. However, finding the right bold lipstick for your trousseau can be a bit tricky. So, here's our list of deep lip makeup looks for brides to try out this winter wedding season!

Dark Lip Makeup For Brides To Try Out This Season

1. Simple Yet Sultry

Going in for a plain dark coloured lipstick is the mainstream way to go. While they can come in numerous types of finishes, from mattes to glossy, the colour choices are endless too. You can choose dark reds like mahogany, maroon, burgundy or go in for a magenta, plum or wine coloured lip.

3. Bombshell Lip Ombres

One of the most classic examples of lip art, an ombre lip is the best way to combine two colours to add more dimension to your lips. These dazzling dual-toned lips are an amazing way to add funk to your wedding makeup look.
