There isn't a better day than your wedding day to look like yourself, so don't change that! 3 agree Reply I wore dark purple lipstick on my wedding day. My family already knows that I am strange bird, so I would have worn a dark lip anyways. But with the dress I had on, which was a nude colored dress with a black lace overlay, it was a debate between red and purple. Purple won out, making the look of the messy updo, dress, boots and makeup an epic win. The photos turned out great. On a side note, that blue color is HOT!!! I just bought a navy blue lipstick some time before Halloween. All hail the bold!!! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
