Things sure have changed when it comes to photos, these days, a photo is snapped and before you know it, it's shared to Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter within seconds. It’s safe to say the SELFIE game is still going strong.
With all the holiday parties coming up there will be plenty of photo ops so it's time to get prepared. I am sharing 5 beauty tricks that will help you look and feel better in photos. These tips will definitely come in handy as your holiday calendar starts filling up with parties!
1. Always do the flash test.
Since flash photography emphasizes any beauty issue it's always a good idea to take a photo with flash before stepping out for your party. This will give you a chance to make any makeup tweaks before it's too late to fix!
2. Powder your nose.
"Excuse me while I go and powder my nose!" It may sound like a line from a old black and white movie I think they really knew what they were talking about. Even if you don't have oily skin, lightly dab translucent powder on your t-zone (the area of your forehead just over your brows and down the bridge of your nose). A glow on your face in real life can sometimes look greasy in photos, so this trick will keep you looking perfect all night.
3. Lashes. Lots of lashes.
Wearing lots of mascara—and even false lashes—will open up your eyes and draw attention to them in photos. Since photography washes out features, it's always nice to emphasize them as best as possible. I personally don’t have thick eye lashes so I never leave the house without mascara.
4. Selfies are all about the angle.
Ahhh the era of Selfies, we all do it and we all love it. When taking the perfect selfie, hand the camera to the person with the longest arms. Hold the camera up and face it down at a slight angle. Also, you don't want to be the one standing the closest to the camera or you will look much larger!
5. Line those lips!
Since parties include chatting, sipping, and eating, that poor lipstick won't stand a chance on its own. To set up a good base, try a liner first. This will keep your lipstick from feathering throughout the party. This way you can enjoy yourself without worrying about your next model pose.
