Pictures are a social staple, and with clicks aplenty on every occasion, you’ll want to ensure your face is picture-perfect in every snap. Here’s how to make the camera love you…
For gorgeous, wideopen eyes in photos, apply beige or taupe shadow to lids (use matte—glitter looks greasy). Apply three coats of mascara for instant doeeyes, or don faux lashes— they may look a bit much in the mirror, but will look like naturally long lashes in pictures (as long as it’s not a close-up shot).
Crème bases can be cakey in photos and stick concealers can give an unattractive matte effect. So, prep face with a light reflecting-based foundation formula that bounces light off any imperfections, giving a soft, pretty glow.
Wear a blush and bronzer. If you opt for just one, your face can look flat on film. Start with a bronzer on your cheekbones and around the outside of your face (like The Body Shop Brilliance Powder); then, apply blush just to the apples of your cheeks.
A shiny gloss reflects well in photos. Layer on a coloured gloss, preferably containing SPF, for a more kissable photo-finish. Instead of tackling the camera head-on, angle your body three-quarters towards it with a shoulder closer, one foot behind the other and your weight on the back leg. This will make you appear slimmer instantly.
