But if you like to dress up, make up: why deprive yourself of it? We think all women are beautiful and you don’t have to have multiple layers of foundation on your muzzle to look hot, but we respect those who think makeup is an art: that of to sublimate.
On the wedding day , you must therefore be in tune with yourself and choose a makeup style that matches your personality or the style of the wedding.
