10 Budget Friendly Lipsticks for a Bride’s Vanity


Are you a bride to be?? Or have someone in your family or a close friend who is soon getting married??

Well then you must surely understand how clueless a bride gets all of a sudden, about her vanity and the case worsens when the bride to be is new to makeup.
A bride is not only supposed to look the prettiest only on her wedding day and other wedding functions but she has to and would like to look pretty always. For the initial few months the bride is the eye candy at any place that she goes to, and is the center of attraction as a “Newly wed”. Well I remember my days when I was going mad over selecting makeup for my vanity. Ever since my marriage date was fixed I went in a state of confusion about what to shop for my vanity.
Though Red is the color for brides but she cannot keep wearing red lipsticks every while. A bride in an urge to look perfect should have various types of lipsticks that go well with her outfits and looks.

Usually when a bride shops for her desirous shades of lipsticks, she is left disappointed as most lipstick shades from her wish list are with high end brands which are either not accessible or are steeply priced.

This is a gorgeous royal red which looks more like a tomato red on lips. A mild, warm – toned shade which is not too bright or not too subtle, it is just the perfect red color.
