Most of us have been to a point where we have been super-annoyed on the photographer for taking a disastrous picture. We often forget that the photographer is not always at the fault, but your look and makeup can be. But, you won’t be suffering from the same problem anymore. Thanks to the makeup tips that we are going to mention below.
Here are some amazing makeup tips that will make you look photogenic in a flash:
Eye makeup first
The simplest trick that can make your pictures a complete success is to put on an eye makeup before the foundation. It will make you look fresh, as you will have the time to clean the mascara and eye shade residue that falls on the cheeks. Moreover, in pictures, it is better to have soft eye look, as something darker can make you look older. Also, apply lots and lots of mascara to get a more prominent look.
Make sure you apply a darker shade to the crease and a light and brighter shade in the middle of the eye-lid. This trick makes the eyes look really big. Plus, highlight the inner corners of the eyes because that makes them look awake. Also, use a white waterline pencil in the lower waterline. All these steps together will help your eyes really catch the attention and appear large and attractive in the photos.
Use a sheer foundation
In pictures, your skin should look flawless yet natural. This is why, go for a foundation formula that is sheer and provides full coverage. It will hide the imperfections, but will still give your skin a natural look. It is better to hide acne marks and work on closing your pores with a tightening face mask before you go on with your makeup routine.
Use a concealer
When you want to pull off a look that also appears equally best in pictures, it is mandatory that you use a concealer. Properly conceal your dark circles, pigmentation areas or any other acne marks. Use the concealer of the same shade as your foundation for concealing the blemishes. You can also use a green color corrector for hiding any dark spots and scars on the face. Plus, use a highlighting concealer that is two tones lighter than your foundation for your dark circles. I would also suggest you to use an orange color corrector for perfect concealment of the discoloration.
Contour your face with a blush brush
This makeup tip for amazing pictures is gold. Contouring hides the bad features, while highlight the good features of your face to make them dominant. Use a blush brush to apply the matte bronzer directly to your skin. Sweep it along your hairline, under your cheekbones, over your temples, and on the underside of your jawline. It will give you a sculpted and angular appearance.
Add blush to your face
Add a subtle amount of blush on your cheeks to give them a definition. Plus, blush-on helps make you look fresh and less pale in photos. Adding hue to your skin is therefore a very important step that you cannot miss at any cost if you want your pictures to turn out great. Just choose a shade that is little darker so that it pops out when you take a picture. Dust the colour on your cheek with the blush brush and clean any excess powder that remains. Then, gently sweep the blush over the apples of your cheeks taking it to the top of your ear.
Moisten your lips
Most of the people commit a cardinal sin of not moisturizing their lips before topping off their look for photographs. You do not want your lips to look cracked and dehydrated, therefore it is necessary to use a lip balm before applying a strong lipstick. You can also scrub your lips with a tablespoon of honey and brown sugar. It helps smooth out the lips and take off all the dead skin.
Dab your face with masking tape
It might sound a bit eccentric, but once you are done with the makeup, dab your face with a masking tape. Before final powdering, tap masking tape so that all the residue and makeup can settle down.
