2008 BEST Makeup Artist, Wedding

Dani Wagener, Shu Uemura

Too many makeup artists labor under the tragic misconception that “bridal” means caked-on foundation, tarlike mascara, and Dynasty-esque cheek contouring. Not Wagener, who studies the bride-to-be’s everyday look, then simply ratchets it up for the nuptials. After a session in her cozy workspace—well worth her $125 hourly fee—we walked away feeling glamorous as hell, but looking like ourselves.
