Red lipsticks are bae, but there are times when we want to take a break from them - times when we want to look stunning and sexy, but are not in the mood for something as bold as a red lipstick. This is when we turn to the colour that may not be as striking as red but still manages to look gorgeous - pink. And, like every other lipcolour in the world, there is that shade of pink that flatters your skin tone more than the others. For now, let’s just focus on our dusky beauties. Five expert bridal make-up artists revealed their favourite pink lipsticks for the dusky bride and you’ve totally got to check out the recommendations!
“The perfect pink shade for a dusky bride is PAC Retro Matte Shade 04. I like to make a cocktail of lip colours so I prefer using MAC’s Flat Out Fabulous as a base shade, topping it up with PAC 04 for that perfect pink for olive-toned skin.”

“I actually love the new shade by MAC called D for Danger. It’s a gorgeous berry shade that can be used as a tint or a full-on lip colour for night weddings. Dusky skin tones just can’t go wrong with this one.”
Love the shade? Buy it from Nykaa for Rs 1,500.

“There are many shades of pink that I love on dusky brides. I usually pick one out of these - Raspberry Pink from Bobbi Brown, Pure Amaranthe from L'Oréal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche collection, NYX shades Tea and Cookies and Ibiza, Colorbar’s Beach Glow and MAC Mehr. They suit warm undertones really well.”

“I have a long list of perfect pink lipsticks which I have divided into categories. Here are some of them that I love for my dusky brides. Dusty Rose by Anastasia Beverly Hills for when you are looking for a subtle look with muted pink lips, this should be your go to colour. Perfect for a day and sure to go well with your warm undertone. Antwerp from NYX is not only a pocket friendly lip shade, but also amazing and can pop up your look instantly. Christian Louboutin in shade Bengali was specially made keeping the Indian skin tone in mind and looks nothing short of gorgeous on the duskier tones. The other shades I love are MAC Girl About Town and Vegas Volt, and Fuschia by Kat Von D.”
