Letilleul Skin Having trouble picking a lipstick color? Choose a shade that matches your lip tone! Remember -- you are going to be in front of the camera. Not all shades of lipsticks work in front of a camera. For example, dark lip shades won't work well on a fair-skinned bride. All you will see in your pictures are your lips. Pick a color that will match your lip tone. For example: shades of nude, rose, pinks or browns. Are your lips cracked or very dry? Try exfoliating your lips everyday for a couple of months before your "big day." This will give you smooth, luscious lips!
