We live in a world of selfies and camera obsessed people. These days, it is more about posing together and snapping a picture than being together. But, still whenever you go out, and there is a chance that you will have to take a picture, always look your best. Who wouldn’t love to have a photograph to swoon over? Right?
To help you out, here are seven makeup tips that will make you look uber glamorous in pictures:
Use The Sheerest Makeup:
In pictures, you have to have a makeup that actually stands out when you see them. In order to achieve that, always opt for the sheerest makeup products possible. Take a sheer foundation formula, especially, and blend it for a seamless finish. For picture-perfect results, start blending from the centre of your face to the tip of the nose, area around the nostrils, the chin, and the acne breakout areas surrounding the cheeks.
Go For Matte Makeup:
This one is the ultimate makeup tip for looking beautiful in photographs. Always choose matte makeup whenever photography is involved, because it is the safest option around camera flashes. It will give you a realistic and glamorous look, while preventing the extra shine.
Blush and Bronzer:
No matter if the photography is going to be flashy or not, do not skimp on blush and bronzer ever. Choose bright colours to enhance your cheeks and appearance in front of the camera. Bring warmth to your cheeks with a bronzer whenever taking pictures. The bonus will be pampering your skin with an exfoliating face mask before you put on lots of makeup.
Add Everything A Little Extra:
Photography, these days, is a little flashy so you need to add everything extra in order to maintain the intensity of your makeup. Add a little extra blush and bronzer and make your lashes extra-long, extra black and extra thick. Also, add a few more coats of mascara than you normally would.
Keep Your Brows Fuller:
Another useful tip for all the people who love to become the candy of the camera. Fill in your eyebrows a bit more than usual, because it makes you look youthful. Before you get a photo taken, ensure that your brows are loud as they make all the difference in the world when your picture comes out.
NO Nude Lipsticks:
A single makeup blunder can destroy your whole look, thus damaging your prospect of taking a good photograph. This is why, you should never opt for nude lipsticks and extra dim colours when heading out for a great party or an event. Try out colours that are pink, as they will make your lips pop in the pictures. Make sure that you apply lip balm before lipsticks, so that your lips do not look cracked.
Take A Picture:
Duh! Obviously, give yourself a test run before you head out to the big thing. The actual purpose of taking a picture in these makeup tips is that you will get to know if your makeup has properly blended or not. A selfie will give you an idea on your lip colour and blush etc. Make sure that the picture is taken while the flash is on.
