How can you make yourself look good in photos?
Do you admire pictures of your friends on social media with a twinge of jealousy? You don’t need any special filters or Photoshop to look great in pictures. With the right make-up, no camera can take you by surprise.
Tomáš Vida, the official Dermacol make-up artist, shares his know-how.
It is not always possible to reapply loose powder onto the shiny areas of your face before every shot. Because of that, choosing the right make-up and applying it correctly is crucial for success.
Ideally, begin with a primer, which will increase your make-up’s resistance throughout the day. A practical solution, especially for holiday packing, is a two-step make-up that contains a make-up base. With this, you will smoothen out fine lines, camouflage pores and make your skin appear nicely matte. Don’t forget to cover any imperfections under your eyes with a concealer.
Seal your make-up with a transparent powder. To make your face look more 3D, use a bronzer and apply it under your cheek bones. Highlight the bridge of your nose and the heart above your lips with a highlighter.
TIP: Do you know how to properly use a concealer?
Concealing imperfections is very important for guaranteeing good pictures. If you want to give it your best, use a palette of correctors containing several shades. Green shades neutralize any redness and spider veins you may have around your nose and cheeks. Yellow shades cover bruises, veins and other purple- and blue-colored imperfections. Beige correctors unify and effectively conceal pigment spots and small scars. The palette also contains a highlighter that will provide a shine and a fresh appearance to your skin. Apply it onto your cheekbones, nose and in the inner corners of your eyes.
SAY NO to black
TIP: Eyebrows that will not let you down
When shaping your eyebrows, use a powder shadow pencil with a foam applicator. It looks more natural and is waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about any faux-pas, even on the beach. Choosing the proper shade is very important – it should be at most one shade darker than the color of your hair.
When applying make-up on your eyes, avoid dark colors and sharp lines that make you look older. Choose natural nude shades. Highlight the crease of your eye with brown and blend it in. Apply a nude shade over the rest of your eyelids to make your eyes stand out. Use a white kohl pencil for the inner line to make your eyes look optically bigger. Its creamy texture makes it ideal for highlighting your inner corners. After application, just smudge it away with a finger.
The lips of a femme fatale
A smile is the alpha and omega of any good picture. You can multiply this effect with the correct make-up. If you have large, full lips, you can wear bolder lipsticks that will make them stand out. If your lips are narrow and you would like to make them to appear bigger, use a nude lipstick or a gloss. For a more precise application, do not forget to use a lip liner that is the same color as your lipstick.
Tip: Juice up your lips
Apply the multiproduct that you used to highlight your skin to the center of your naked lips.
