Looking great (and having fun) in Lingerie – How to sex up 2017

Posted on January 13 2017

Here at Makeup Worship lingerie is an important part of weekly life.  We are all about feeling sexy and confident and exploring sensuality in all of its’ beautiful facets.  That isn’t to say that lingerie doesn’t stress us out pretty regularly.  We want to feel good about ourselves and excite our partners but we also like pizza every now and again and lingerie can be an unforgiving bitch!  We are not all Victoria’s Secret models so looking good when you're practically naked isn't easy.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind next time you're stripping down and dressing up in something lacy:
  1. Harness your inner confidence and don’t let it go – We can’t stress enough that CONFIDENCE IS SEXY (see earlier blog posts)!  You may think your lingerie confidence is nonexistent, but you’re wrong. Somewhere deep inside, you have at least some level of confidence or you wouldn’t be reading this blog. If you can’t find it right away, think of times where you surprised yourself with something you did that was awesome and out of character. Grab the confidence you had in that fleeting moment and don’t let it go. In fact, grab it tight and grind all over that memory until you’re forced to experience what confidence feels like, then implement it into your new lingerie adventure!
  2. Workout right before—or at least that day. Exercising will make your muscles look tighter and leaner (at least for a few hours after a workout.
  3. Use a bronzer for contouring. The word "contouring" can be a little offsetting, but all it really means is you take a powdered bronzer and dust your cleavage and abs to add definition. Focus on the sides of your stomach—the shadowing will make you look slimmer.
  4. Don't forget your legs. Legs are absolutely key, especially if you're planning on rocking a garter, which will draw attention to them. If you have time, use a self tanner the day before. If your adventure is more spontaneous (and the best ones usually are), use a shimmering cream which will add warm undertones and a little oomph to those wintery legs of yours.
  5. Simple can be sexier.  Sometimes it is tempting to go online (or into a store) and pick lingerie that is over the top – magazine sexy.  The truth is though, that the complicated lingerie is often the most uncomfortable and discomfort is rarely good for self-confidence.  If it is hard to dazzle yourself in the dressing room it is not going to be easy to rock it in the bedroom in front of an audience.  Simple can be equally as sexy and a lot more comfortable which can make you feel (and look) pretty damn hot!
  6. Don’t forget the makeup!  This entire exercise is designed to make you feel good about yourself so don’t forget your face – especially if you want that special person to look above your neck (let’s face it, lingerie is hot and very distracting).  Once again, you don’t have to get too crazy. Slap on some waterproof mascara, possibly some eyeliner, and some Kiss Proof Lipstick! Be daring and go bold. Red lipstick will help you feel like the seductress you truly are. Why red? Because, and this has been scientifically proven, red increases desire in both men and women. So, if you’re not brave enough yet to bust out red lingerie, your next best bet is red lipstick. We’ve picked out a few makeup essentials to keep your sexy night as flawless as possible.  

Worried your perfectly painted pout will rub off all over who knows what once you start getting it on?  Try Makeup Worship's Kiss Proof Liquid Matte Lipstick and worry no more! Super bold, long-lasting and won't rub off all over someone else's face or body parts.

Once things start getting hot and heavy the last thing you want to do is worry about your mascara dripping off your eyelashes.  Try a Waterproof Mascara like Size and Stamina by Makeup Worship and those lashes will stay perky while you play.

Seal that dramatic eye makeup you worked so hard to create with Makeup Worship's Poof It's Waterproof liner and eye shadow sealer. Swipe this on top of your eyeliner or mix it in with any shadow to keep it in place

7. Practice makes perfect!  Feeling comfortable in lingerie might take a little time.  Maybe you have to wear a suit/uniform to work or sweats to class.  That sure as hell doesn’t mean you can’t wear some hot lingerie underneath. Maybe this seems pointless, but it’s a great way to warm up to the idea of wearing it. Remember: you’re not just wearing lingerie for him/her; you’re wearing it for yourself, too. It can be a surprising turn on (and give a confidence boost) knowing that you have a little naughty secret going on under your straight-laced outfit. You’re a sexy beast! So be sexy 24 hours a day!

8. This is for FUN.  Don’t take yourself too seriously.  Be yourself.  Relax.  Laugh.  Being a purring sex kitten or a naughty she-devil should not be serious work.  You have mastered the art of being a lace and chiffon sex goddess – relax and own it!
