While she kept her eye makeup to the barest minimum, her lips were popping with the help of a glossy lip kit.

Taraji's choice to go natural got revealed when she exclusively

told

PEOPLE in 2016:

"I feel like relaxing my hair for 26 years really damaged it. But it's natural now — and I love it. For Empire, I use wigs. I keep my hair braided in lots of teeny cornrows, so the wigs fit on my head. When I take them out, I'll sit under a steamer while I deep-condition my hair."

Although Taraji appeared on the show to discuss the upcoming and last season of "Empire," talk of her forthcoming nuptials came up.

The actress revealed that she wasn't a "bridezilla" while adding that her wedding was going to be a "family and close friends only" affair.

The "Hidden Figures" star is looking forward to walking the aisle with her beau Kelvin Hayden. The couple, who had been dating for over two years, got engaged in May 2018.

The couple couldn't be happier even though Kelvin, a former NFL star, is 16 years younger than Taraji.
