Is it just us or do you also end up littering your camera roll with your many not-so-good selfies? We are sure pretty much every girl does this unless they have got a great camera, amazing lighting, or a really photogenic face. Whatever the case is, we are making no judgments here. Whether we are taking selfies or attending a virtual meeting, the first thing most of us notice is how we look on the screen. While sometimes the photos turn out to be really good, there are also times when the pictures fail to do justice to how you actually look in real.
Be it iPhone selfies, professional photos, or a virtual meeting, there are a couple of expert tips that will help put your best face forward in the photos. Listed below are some excellent makeup tricks that will help you look 10 times better in every photographic circumstance.
Play up your eyes
One of the easiest yet stunning ways to make your eyes pop and make them appear bright in photos is by using blue mascara and eyeliner. Yes, you heard that right. While everybody uses black mascara or eyeliner to add more definition and depth to their eyes, it doesn’t really work wonders for photos. A blue mascara or eyeliner, on the other hand, instantly jazzes up the look and makes you appear all the more spectacular and chic.
Keep your lashes and brows soft
Instead of going all out and making your brows look overly done, you should keep things pretty light and soft. Try to define both your brows and lashes as naturally as possible. The more you keep things natural, the better you will look in photos. Therefore, instead of keeping your brows boxy or making your lashes look clumpy, you should take a natural approach.
Add gloss to your lips
One of the best ways to accentuate thinner lips in photos is by adding color to them. Lipsticks in nude tones tend to make thin lips disappear in photos, whereas, bold and opaque colors make your thin lips look even thinner. The best thing you can do in this case is to use a sheer lip gloss in a bright color. It won’t only add color to your lips but will also help enhance them. Hence, ditch lipsticks and invest in sheer lip glosses in brighter shades right away.
Use bold colors
One of the many things to keep in mind when it comes to makeup products is you should avoid using heavy and cakey products as cameras can amplify the texture. Apart from that, bright lights also wash out colors, including blush and eyeshadow. If you know you are going to be photographed in front of bright lights, you can consider using intense colors so that they show up in the photos and not get washed out because of a bright flash. You can use vibrant hues to create stunning eye makeup looks, these colors won’t only look good in photos but will also help amp up the drama.
Skip heavy contour and use highlighter + blush instead
When done right, contouring can help you achieve a chiseled and sculpted look, but it’s easy to go wrong with contouring, and it’s best to avoid it if you don’t want to end up looking aged. Instead of opting for heavy contouring, you should use highlighter and blush instead. The right placement of these products can help lift and sculpt your face. As far as the color of the blush is concerned, you should opt for peachy-tones, and when it comes to your highlighter, the right placement is everything.
