Pucker Up! Why we’re hot for reds
A knock-out pout is a bridal no-brainer. You’ll be kissing all day long – from that frst married smooch to your goodnight snuggle (ahem) – and your lips need to be in tip-top condition. Celebrity make-up artist Chase Aston reveals his cheat-sheet for fuller- looking lips in seconds.

Volumise Use a fabulous lip plumper, such as Cellular Performance Total Lip Treatment, £70, Sensai at harrods.com, which promotes collagen to create volume fast, as well as moisturising, repairing and minimising any dullness. PreP Stick a base like KissKiss Liplif, £23.50, Guerlain at harrods.com, under your lipstick or gloss to fll out lines and coat the lips for a long-lasting hold.
Paint Cheat fuller lips with a liner to fll and defne. I like Lip Pencil in Spice, £12.50, maccosmetics.co.uk (3). Ten add a bold peony lipstick (Rich Lip Color, £19.50, bobbibrown.co.uk, 1) or a pinky-brown shade in the centre of the lips, and apply nude gloss all over (Lip Luster in Muse, £21.50, Michael Kors at houseofraser.co.uk, 2). Tese colours work for all skin tones.
Brave it on your big day with a statement shade – it’ll not only look gorgeous but the pigments make your teeth look whiter and your lips appear fuller. Glosses also create volume with shine, and act just like a magnifying glass on your mouth. (Left to right) Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in Spice, £26.50, armanibeauty.co.uk.
