Learn to get your wedding-day makeup exactly right

Flawless Skin
Smooth a lightweight foundation onto skin to even out tone and hide imperfections. But instead of picking a hue that mimics your face color, harmonize it with your shoulder shade. Berta, the New York makeup artist who worked her magic on these pages, says shoulders are a close match to the rest of the body, while the face gets lighter from repeated washing and exfoliating. You'll look better in photos and in person—no two-toned disasters. For the most natural look, blend foundation past the jaw into the neck.
