Oh, there are so many threads here with tips and advice on cover ups. I think that MAC studio fix is a popular one. Revlon Colorstay makeup seems to be popular too.

I don't use anything special, I use foundation/powder and estee lauder concealer for cover up where needed.

1950 style....ummmm think...Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. Focus more on eye brows, red lips, dark eyeliner. Less on cheeks and eye shadow.

In the 1950s colour films made an enormous impact on cosmetics. The huge cinema screens illuminated the unblemished appearance of stars and caused the make up artist Max Factor to invent an everyday version of the foundation he used called “Pan Cake�. This was a makeup to gloss over skin imperfections. He also brought out a range of eye shadows and lipsticks. Later in the 50s titanium was added to tone down the brightness of products and this resulted in lips with a pale shimmering gleam. The idea was extended to create frosted nail varnishes of pink, silver and a host of other colours.

This may be too late for your event, but hopefully can help you in the future. Start with a clean palette...of course. After moisturizing, apply your concealer in a shade similar to your skin tone, then apply your foundation. Try to find a foundation shade that will neutralize your redness. Some women find that an olive based foundation shade will help with this. Avoid foundations that have a pink or red color base...you are just adding more of what you want to cover!! Try finding a foundation that has buildable coverage so that it doesn't look caked on or chalky.

Avoid cheek color with too much red. And avoid brown or bland / too neutral color lipstick. When you have texture issues, whether acne flare up or as women get older, fine lines/wrinkles, the tendency is to try to make everything blur together in the hope that what you don't want to feature will blur into the background.

Well, the effect is opposite to what you are trying to achieve. Instead, go with a lip color that has more reflective color. It makes any complexion lok smoother.

Of course, focus the attention on eyes. Lots of drama here will pull the attention where we want it...eye contact.

Feel free to contact me for any specific questions or color recommendations Have fun and good luck with your event!
