After a ceremony filled with promises and vows, the most important kiss of your relationship, your wedding kiss, seals the deal, confirming your status as a married couple. It’s also the most watched kiss you’ve ever had, after all, all eyes — and cameras — will be on you (and your lips!) once the officiant says, “You may now kiss the bride!” Before the biggest smooch of your married life, get your lips smooth, plump, and photo-ready with these pout-perfecting lip treatments.
You exfoliate your body before applying self-tanner for a streak-free glow, so why not exfoliate your lips before applying lipstick for an even application of color? This certified organic lip scrub gently buffs with sugar cane crystals to remove unflattering flakes, leaving behind a moisture-rich barrier packed with honey, beeswax, and various oils to protect against future dryness. You’ll be hooked on the results — and the sweet vanilla and spearmint scent.
Chapped lips can happen to anyone at almost any time, but they’re especially a concern for winter brides. Luckily, First Aid Beauty offers a fragrance- and taste-free intensive lip treatment that helps alleviate — and, remarkably, prevent — dry, distressed lips. Its key ingredients all draw on the natural healing power of bees: honey and beeswax for moisture and propolis extract to repair and restore damaged lips.
On your wedding day, everything should be perfect — including your lips. This aptly named lip treatment offers long-lasting moisture, a fuller looking pout, and a more defined lip line thanks to super scientific-sounding ingredients like Bio-Engineered Renewal Complex and Apple Stem Cell Technology. Even better, after repeated use, Perfect Lips minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so your lips can continue to look perfect long after you say “I do.”
We wouldn’t necessarily recommend sipping on a mojito while getting your wedding makeup done, but we’re totally on board with lip scrub and solid lip oil that smell and taste just like the traditional Cuban cocktail. Practically a party for your lips, this exfoliating lip duo smooths and conditions with Marula Oil, a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals while helping to build collagen. This convenient two-in-one — perfect for vegan and gluten-free brides — comes with a mirror for on-the-go exfoliation emergencies. Because that’s a thing.
Before you seal the deal with a kiss, seal your lips with this innovative gel patch. After 20 minutes of intense hydration and nourishment (and silence — there’s no talking while the patch is on your mouth!), your lips will be soft, smooth, and ready for their first kiss as a married couple. But don’t stop with the wedding: At $4, this lip mask is so affordable, you can keep your kisser in prime condition even after the honeymoon ends.
If you can’t get to Beverly Hills for an appointment with Dr. Harold Lancer, you can still reap the benefits of his expertise in the form of Lancer Volume Enhancing Lip Serum. The celebrity dermatologist’s advanced lip treatment minimizes the appearance of vertical fine lines while increasing hydration for visibly fuller lips. While the product can define lip contours and highlight your natural lip color on its own, it can also be worn as a foundation under your wedding lipstick to help bright colors pop.
Given the choice, we’ll almost always pick a product that works instantly and offers long-term benefits. GrandeLIPS, for example, is a hydrating lip plumper that makes mouths look bigger in three-to-five minutes and increases overall hydration, volume, and firmness in just one month. The vanilla-flavored treatment, which can be worn on its own or under other lip colors, tingles when applied; that’s the hyaluronic acid and Volulip™ getting down to business.
