Prep Your Lips for the Perfect Wedding Look!
Every time you look at a photo, the first thing you notice is the persons smile. Good or bad. Is there something in their teeth? Are they looking white or yellow? Is my lipstick still looking fresh? If you are the blushing bride, you are guaranteed to be in almost every single photo taken of your big day, and we want you looking perfect. Wedding photographers are constantly snapping candid moments of this joyous day, with that in mind, we at Certified Fabulous have compiled a few different products that will get you the bright and beautiful smile that will shine through these photos for years to come. Thankfully, wedding invitations are sent out far enough in advance that whether you are part of the wedding party or you are a wedding guest, you have plenty of time to perfect your photogenic smile.
The first step to take is get rid of any stains on those maybe not so pearly whites of yours. There are some great at home teeth whitening kits out there, but the Smile Illuminator Instant Whitening Kit is a nice kit that is easily added to your daily routine. This is a great option if you either cannot afford to get your teeth professionally whitened, or if you simply do not have the time to get to the dentist. The kit is made up of three steps: Polish, Boost, and Revamp. To polish your teeth, use the electrifying blue tooth paste which gently cleanses your teeth and has a refreshingly light minty flavor. Next, boost your smile with the whitening brisk rinse. Both the tooth paste and the rinse use something call Blueverite Technology, which is supposed to whiten your teeth after just one use. The touch up revamp whitening serum can be used separately throughout the day to help dissolve and prevent stains; can be used as needed anywhere you go, just brush over each tooth that you would like to whiten, let dry, and continue your day. This product is completely safe and even when used frequently, did not cause any tooth sensitivity. The full kit can be bought online or at Walgreens or Bed Bath and Beyond for $17.99.
Before adding any lip color, I always have to scrub off any dead skin from my lips that may keep my color from applying smoothly. The Pout-O-Matic lip scrubbing system is a very convenient and soothing way to do so. The Bliss Fabulips Pout-O-Matic tool looks like an electric toothbrush and comes with two rubber heads to interchange to make easy clean up. All you do is turn the power on and let the tool scrub away dry and chapped skin off your lips. It is actually very soothing, and leaves your lips looking very healthy and plumped. By scrubbing your lips prior to applying color, your lips are primed and hold the color much longer and have a nice smooth look during the entire day. This kit comes with its own soft scrub to use, which conditions and gently exfoliates away any rough or dead skin. This is the perfect preparation to make your lips perfectly pouty and pillow soft for your first married couple kiss. The pout-o-matic is available at Ulta for $48.
Once your lips are prepped and primed for color, line your lips and fill in with lip pencil to create a beautiful base to last all day. The La Bella Donna Duo Lip Crayon are a richly pigmented lip liner and crayon in one stick. The liner has a finer tip which makes a nice defined barrier from the edge of your lip and skin to keep your color in place. The lip crayon itself is very smooth and feels creamy as it is applied. The crayon and liner are made from natural antioxidants and help continue nourishing your lips during your day. The pencils come in multiple shades so you can choose whichever matches the look that you are going for best. The lip duo crayon is available at labelladonna.com for $27.
After the lip liner, you can either use a classic lipstick, lip balm, or gloss; Besame's sweetheart glaze luminous lip protectant & moisturizer is great during this step because it adds moisture into your lips as well as a nice glossy sheen. The Sweet Rose color is a clear gloss with slightly blue undertones which gives lips a beautiful and subtle coloring. This shade is perfect for an all-day look, or can be deepened if applied over a lip pencil or lipstick. This lip glaze is available at Besamecosmetics.com for $20.
