5. BOLDER COLORS
No one wants to look like a clown, but in photographs, carefully selected bold colors look amazing. A camera flash can wash out even the tannest face, so choose a lip color and cheek color that will add depth and style to your face. A well made cheek and beautifully colored lips will make create a well balanced face.
6. PROPERLY MATCHED FOUNDATION
You need to be sure that your foundation matches your skin perfectly. If your foundation is not perfectly matched, it will show in the pictures. You will look too light or your neck will look too light. When you have no idea how to match your foundation, a makeup artist at a department store counter will be able to help you at absolutely no cost to you.
7. NOT TOO MUCH SPARKLE
No one wants to look like a disco ball when they are featured in photos. Keep your glitter makeup at home and off of your face. Glitter really does show in photos, especially when flashes are used. When you use glitter, it goes into unexpected places and then all of the sudden you have a little piece of glitter on your nose – in a photo! If you need to have sparkle, wear a shimmery lipstick. Otherwise, your makeup should be matte.
8. FILL IN YOUR BROWS
Brows can often disappear in pictures, especially if you have light ones to begin with. When you want your brows to frame your eyes in the pictures, use a brow pencil with a gentle touch or try a little brow powder. You goal is not to draw in brows, but to just fill in a little to create a pretty frame for your eyes.
9. CONTOUR YOUR EYE CREASE
Your eyes will look amazing when you add shadow to the crease on your eyelids. When you add a matte eyeshadow in a neutral color in a darker shade that the eyelid color you chose, you creases will keep your eyes on center stage. Your eyes will most definitely not get lost in the photo when you accent your creases.
With the right makeup, you will love your photos! These tips will help you look good in any light, in any angle, at any location. When you are getting ready for a special event, place your makeup appropriately, but do not overdo it because less really is more.
