Sure, clear gloss will keep your lips shiny and inviting until your first kiss as man and wife, but take our advice and choose a shade of lipstick instead. Clear gloss won't accentuate your lips the way lipstick will, and choosing the right shade will not only define your pout at the altar, but in wedding photographs, too. While red and other dark shades of lipstick are typically considered to be reserved for more formal occasions, we think all shades of lipstick are fine for daytime brides -- just make sure the color you choose complements your skin tone.
