Chelsea Clinton's Wedding Makeup:
Step 1: Create a flawless base with a long-wearing, oil-free foundation. Try Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation, $42.
Step 2: Contour cheeks and add color. Linter recommends blending Lancome Blush Subtil in Cappucine, $29.50, under the cheekbones, plus a bit on the cheekbones, and adding a touch of Lancome Blush Subtil Sheer in Amourose, $29.50, higher up on the cheekbones for a glowing finish.
Step 3: Dust the center of your face and forehead with sheer, transparent powder to soak up any shine.
Step 4: Sweep a nude shadow over your entire lid. (This acts as a base for the other colors you'll use and prevents shadows from getting oily.)
Step 5: Line your top lids with a black pencil (try Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil, $3.33, and soften the line with a small shadow brush or Q-tip. Go over the line again with black eyeshadow, making it a bit thicker at the outer edges of the eye for a more wide-eyed look.
Step 6: Retrace the black liner with a smoky grey shadow, blending up onto the eyelid and finishing just under the brows -- remember, the key to a great smoky eye like this is blending. The color should be darkest at your lashline and disappear before it reaches your brows, with no obvious lines.
Step 7: Line your lower lashlines with black pencil and smudge slightly with a small brush. Apply two coats of mascara (try CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara, $8.99) to your upper lashes only.
Step 8: Finish the look by applying a warm rosy lipstick shade (try Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Blue Raspberry, $22) on the lips then top it with clear lip gloss.
Chelsea Clinton's Wedding Hair:
Step 1: Apply a generous amount of a volumizing spray like Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray, $25 to damp hair. Don't be shy with the product -- your hair needs to develop grip to stay put once it's pinned up.
Step 2: Pop the nozzle on your hairdryer. Using a flat styling brush and blow dry hair. You want to create volume here, so direct the roots of the hair back as you dry.
Step 3: Next, take a one-inch wide section of hair at the back of your head (from the bottom of the crown to the nape of your neck) and backcomb it to create volume and a base for pinning.
Step 4: Gather the hair as though you are about to put it into a ponytail, and mist all over with a little hairspray. Try Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Lasting Volume Hairspray, $5.99.
Step 5: Twist and roll the hair inward (French twist-style), securing with a few three-inch long hair pins. Use smaller hairpins to secure any stray pieces and finish with more hairspray to smooth down flyaways.
