How to Look Your Best Self for a Photo

Getting photos taken is both an exciting and daunting moment for most people. You want to look your best, but you are also the harshest on your own appearance. 

If you don’t regularly get your picture taken, you may feel uncomfortable with the process, but there are a couple things you can do to bring out your beauty.

Hide Blemishes

No matter how good your skincare routine is, you can’t always control breakouts and the occasional bump that shows up just when you don’t want them to. Rather than stress too much about it, the best thing you can do is use your makeup to hide the blemishes in a natural way. 

Don’t pancake your makeup on, but use your concealer, foundation, and highlight to cover it and draw attention to the other areas of your face that you want to highlight. The reality is that it is going to seem worse to you than it actually is because you are your own worst critic. Don’t pick at it; ask the photographer if they can help you hide it and you will be golden.

Make Your Smile Bright

Your smile is what everyone’s eye will be drawn to first, so having a bright smile is one of the things to pay attention to when preparing for your photoshoot. It also isn’t something you can fix overnight, so don’t leave it to the last minute. There are a variety of options that you can choose from to help whiten your teeth, so consider what will work best for you. 

DIY treatments use a lower concentration of peroxides which makes them less effective. If your teeth need serious work, it is always best to work with a professional. On the day of the photos, you can also choose a blue-toned red lipstick to cancel out any lingering yellow in your teeth.

Choose the Right Outfit

If you want to look good in your photos, you need to feel good. This means your outfit needs to make you feel confident and beautiful. Rather than picking something that is out of your comfort zone, make sure your outfit fits your style and your color palette. Depending on the undertones of your skin, there are certain colors that will look better on you and brighten you up. You can always ask your photographer for suggestions as well. With their experience, they can guide you in the right direction.

Rather than focusing on everything that could go wrong, make sure you spend the time enjoying yourself. Loving yourself and being happy comes through your face and will make your photos stand out in the best way possible. You’ve got a great photographer, so let them make you shine.
