5 Makeup Tips to Look Better in Photos

 

This is the time of year where we are often snapped caught off guard and then horrified to see that tag notification on Facebook, luckily I have to accept the photo before it’s tagged to my name these day’s thanks to a handy privacy tool on Facebook (inserts smug emoji), but for those of you that don’t have that set up and to avoid the horror I’ve come up with 5 tips to make sure you are photo ready no matter what the occasion. You will be party ready and more importantly photo ready with these top tips!

To ensure your skin is looking it’s absolute best make sure you prepare like you’ve never prepared it before, moisturise to hydrate the skin and prime to create a smooth base for your face products. There’s nothing worse than creasing products and dry patches!

If you are off to an evening event then I’d suggest avoiding foundations that have an SPF in them, these are what create that white ghost face when the camera flashes and we all know that’s not a good look. God knows I’ve had a fair few photos taken with the ghost face and it’s a mistake I never want to make again as it really can ruin a picture.

Chisel out those cheek bones and create a bone structure like you’ve never done before, contouring can be a great way to push back or sink in any features you don’t want to be as prominent by creating more of a shadow in those areas and highlighting can really accentuate the areas you want to pop and stand out.

Have you ever heard of the saying TV adds about 10lbs to the person on it? Well the camera can sometimes take layers of makeup off and lies about all the hard work you’ve done so add a little more than you usually would to avoid the minimal makeup look, unless that’s what you are after. Don’t be afraid to be bold, be bold or go home.
[df_divider_text title=”Powder” title_align=”separator_align_center” el_width=”100″ style=”solid” accent_color=”#EEEEEE” padding=”20px 0″ position=”align_center” el_class=”” border_t_width=”2px”]
Always make sure you have a translucent powder and fluffy brush tucked away in your purse so you can ensure your face is going to be shine free all night, dust a little onto the T-Zone area to avoid shine in photos. Tip; If you don’t want to use a powder then pop some oil-blotting sheets into your bag as they will do the trick also.
