Tips On How To Look Picture Perfect

Some celebrities get ‘caught’ being normal all the time. Makeup-less, sweatpants-wearing, just back from the gym sweaty people. But other celebrities (Jennifer Aniston for example) NEVER seem to take a bad photo. How is this possible? Looking good in front of a camera is all about confidence. Practice posing in front of a mirror at home. If you think it looks good, it probably does. Perhaps you’re one of those girls who is so photogenic that you can sneeze and still look like an America’s Next Top Model winner, but for the rest of us, we need some h-e-l-p when it comes to giving good face for the camera. Whether you’re fantasizing about an upcoming event or you’re just concerned with looking great when you go out this weekend, here are some of the tricks of the trade to look your best when a photographer counts to three.

1. Tyra taught it best — “smize” and you’ll immediately look better in pictures. There’s nothing worse than being dead behind your eyes.

2. Relax, breathe and (dare we say) have a little fun! No one likes a wet blanket, and being lively during a photo shoot will only result in amazing pictures.

3. Don’t wear colors that wash you out. Vibrant colors or hues that work well with your skin tone will make you look more alive and are way more flattering.

4. Use eye drops to clear up any redness or tired looking eyes. The eyes are the windows to the soul, after all, so if they look great you’re sure to kill it in pictures.

5. Just before taking pictures, pinch the apples of your cheeks to get a natural, rosy glow.

6. Slightly lower your front shoulder to elongate your neck and create more dramatic angles.

7. Stick out your chin just a little bit to avoid the double chin.

8. Cast your eyes just above where the camera’s lens is. Your eyes will appear larger by being more open, and you’ll look awake and full of energy.

9. Don’t face the camera straight on. Posing at a slight angle (45 degrees is best) will instantly slim your figure.

10. Don’t go overboard on color, this means too much makeup, tanning, or hair dying. The best rule of thumb is to blend and be subtle, otherwise you end up looking like a rainbow of disaster.
