Finish it with pressed or loose powder and you’ll have the perfect canvas for the rest of your makeup, ” she says. For other cosmetics, Aimi Edelman, a makeup artist with Laura Geller Make-Up Studios in New York City, suggests the following:
• Avoid shimmery colors, which often look too shiny in photographs.
• Don’t use extreme shades; natural colors tend to look better when you’re wearing white.
• Draw attention to your eyes by adding extra eyeliner in the outer corners.
• Take oil-blotting or rice paper to the reception it will absorb oil without adding color the way some powders do. (To try: Shiseido Pureness Oil-Blotting Paper, Prescriptives Instant Face Powder Foundation, Estee Lauder 2 Maximum Cover Lightweight Makeup; for Natural Cover, call 800-752-0066. )
