A shimmery powder or cream will help you look radiant all over. Apply it on the tops of your arms and shoulders, and across your chest and collarbone. (Put on your dress before applying, and protect it with a towel or cloth.) Use a light touch; too much shimmer can emphasize imperfections and make skin appear greasy in photographs. "You want to look luminous, not shiny or sparkly," says New York City makeup artist Robin Schoen. Most shimmer products come in shades ranging from colorless luminescent (for fair skin) to gold (for dark or tanned complexions). Creams are best for dry skin, powders for normal or oily.
