Ways to make your picture more beautiful
We love taking pictures with friends and family—but if there is one thing we don’t love? Getting caught looking terrible in a million photos. It’s enough to make you wonder exactly how all those models manage to be so damn photogenic. Even if you love the way you look in person, it takes practice to make sure your in-the-flesh beauty translates on camera. The good news? Learning how to be photogenic is a skill you can totally master. Here are a few of our favourite tips that will teach you how to look good in pictures every single time.
If you want to blink in the photos, close your eyes just before the picture is taken and open them slowly before the camera clicks. No more half-closed eyes!
To avoid a double chin, elongate your neck and push your face forward a bit. Think of sticking out your forehead and tipping your chin slightly down. It might feel awkward, but it will look great — promise.
Make sure your makeup is a perfect match, says mark Celebrity Makeup Artist Fiona Stiles, who’s prepped everyone from Halle Berry to Jessica Chastain and Elizabeth Banks for the red carpet. “When a foundation is too visible for your skin tone, it becomes obvious when a flash hits the skin.” She advises, “Match your skin to your chest and add a thin layer to your neck if your neck is shorter and thiner.
Curled lashes and mascara are musts, “Both open up your eyes, and the eyes are the focal point of a picture. You want to draw people into a picture, so you want to maximize the impact of the eyes. They more open they are, the more the light hits them and that’s what makes them twinkle!”
Look at your favourite pictures of yourself and try to make the best picture. Smiling is the perfect angle for a beautiful picture.
