There has been enough chatter over the wedding night to understand that it is a big deal in all our lives. Thanks to airbrushed images and filtered photographs of celebs on magazine covers and on social media we have somehow started expecting the same from ourselves in real life. And as if it's not a worry every day, it all heightens during the wedding. It's supposed to be the most special day of our lives and we need to look our stunning best. Well, don't you worry your pretty li'l head because there isn't rocket science behind it. You just need to put in a tiny bit of effort, set aside your insecurities and flaunt what you already have.
That crazy smokey eye and false lashes and not to mention thick layers of foundation need to be removed and your skin needs to breathe.

But don't take too long in the washroom, we don't want to keep him waiting!

We've all seen sex scenes during a movie where actors are perfectly ready with their red lipstick, full lashes, and eyebrows on fleek. But what you don't see is the makeup artist hovering around the set to keep doing touch-ups during the scene.

If you have acne scars or stress pimples to cover, just use concealer and top it off with a lip gloss. He won't be able to resist your juicy lips for sure!
