“The biggest mistake women make is foundation,” says Slone Mathieu, a makeup artist and board-certified aesthetician (at Dermatology Specialists, 2440 M St., NW, Suite 313; 202-775-1792). Mathieu, who has pancaked the faces of Senator John McCain and retired soccer star Mia Hamm, among others, also works with mere mortals.
She’ll create a glowing bridal face ($75 for in-office application, $125 at home), make sure you never suffer another lipstick faux pas (personal shopping, $50 an hour), even host a glamour-makeover party in your home, complete with lessons and product discounts (starts at $125). If makeup isn’t your thing, she’ll design a better skin-care routine for you ($25 in her office, $50 at home). Says Mathieu: “My goal is to help clients heal, fix, and enjoy their skin.”
