Now that restrictions have lifted and couples can start putting the finishing touches to larger late-summer weddings, we catch up with Leanne Lishman, the face behind Cotswold Wedding Hair & Makeup based in Cheltenham, about colours for the season. She tells us, "For many, life in lockdown seems to have reprogrammed how we feel about our skincare and make-up habits with many women embracing their natural selves. With months of wearing very little make-up and focusing on good skincare, we have fallen in love with our natural beauty. Bearing this in mind, many brides now prefer the fresh natural look allowing their skin to shine through, achieved by using soft natural colours and keeping foundation to a minimum, opting for light coverage."
Leanne adds, "Pink and peach shades of blush keep the focus on the cheeks for a healthy glow and eye make-up is kept minimal with a subtle touch of colour using natural shades. Barely-there tones and soft-pink hues are the go-to options for lipstick for brides wanting a more natural feel, and a tinted lip balm is a great way to add a subtle pop of colour."
