BRIGHT LIP

Blair says: “Where a nude lip is a good go-to for a bride, there has been a shift to more brides opting for bolder colour on the lips. Think peach hues, modern pinks, mulberry or deep rose shades. A blurred, bold lip pairs beautifully with a softly defined eye. This look is easy to wear, romantic and translates well in photos.”

MODERN MONOCHROME
