Only the perfect pout for kissing her new husband, Joe Manganiello, of course.

While the rest of us will be locating our stretchy pants and prepping for Thanksgiving travel, Modern Family star Sofia Vergara will be basking in the glow of being a newlywed after her wedding to actor Joe Manganiello on Sunday.

In order to ensure her makeup went the distance through dancing, cake and of course, kissing, Vergara collaborated with CoverGirl (she’s been a face for the beauty brand since 2011) to create a custom shade of red to wear on her big day.

Aptly named, "Sofia in Love," the rich crimson shade has the same technology in it as CoverGirl’s Outlast Longwear lipstick, so that the bride wasn’t saddled with the pressure to stop the reveling and have to reapply. Plus, since the color was customized, Vergara could get the exact hue that best suited her overall wedding day vision.

"I knew I wanted a lipstick for the wedding that was either a red or a pink. I want a color that is going to make the lips pop!" says the actress. "I think when you’re wearing a white dress, you can really play with the lip color and do something really fun."

Sadly, Vergara will be the only one having fun with this particular shade of lip color, as it was created solely for her and her nuptials. But, the Longwear lipstick formula makes sense when aiming for a lip color that both lasts and hydrates; brides-to-be will just have to choose a different hue from the 11 other shades in the Outlast collection.
