Picture Perfect

We all know that a bad picture can put a damper on things so here are some handy tips to make the most important pictures of your life picture perfect!

Confidence

The key to a timeless photograph is confidence. Try these two poses in the mirror and you will get good results! Good posture will help with your confidence, so shoulders back, neck straight, stick your chin out slightly, and barely tilt your face to the side. For another strong confident pose, stand tall, put one foot in front of the other, bend one knee, and position your upper body back a bit. For your arms to appear more toned, never place your arms at your side. Instead place one hand on your hip, and remember you look amazing!

Natural Light

Natural light enhances the beauty of your skin's soft color making your complexion glow and it illuminates your eye color, leaving you with a photograph that is sparkling and stunning. Be sure to use powder foundation and apply makeup by a window to ensure your makeup looks flawless in natural light. Just before sunset, the light is perfect for pictures but if you are being photographed earlier in the day, try to find natural shade so you aren't squinting.

Smile Brilliantly and Beautifully

What's worse than those smile wrinkles that squish your eyes together, making appear smaller than they really are? While being photographed, remember to relax your forehead and perhaps raise your eyebrows a bit while smiling. It will help even out those little squinty wrinkles on your forehead and the eye area. So your face looks slim and firm, stick your chin out slightly and turn your head a bit. The results will be good!

Plan Your Pose

Pose different ways in the mirror, that way you know which one truly suits you best.
