Look perfect in pictures for the holidays
Forget getting presents, for many fashionistas the best part of the holiday season is showing off their stylish ensembles and stellar makeup trends. Even though many ladies out there have already found the perfect frocks and have scooped up new cosmetics, one thing they may need a few pointers on is how to look gorgeous in front of the camera.
Find your best side
"Take some time to look through old photos of yourself. Note ones where you really like how you look and figure out which side of your face is to the camera and how your body is angled," a former beauty pageant queen and now coach, told the publication. "For most people, a 45-degree angle (or 3/4 turn) is flattering, unless you have a larger nose, in which case you should face the camera straight on. If you tilt your head away from the camera, make sure your eyes are still looking at it."
Forget about posing
Instead, try to switch up your style and opt to keep your arms away from your body in full-length shots as this will improve your posture. Arch your back slightly as well to make your waist look smaller.
Choose your makeup wisely
For the lips, the makeup and fashion pro suggests first applying a layer of foundation and translucent powder on your bare pout and then lining your lips in a nude liner. Next, swipe on a lipstick that is about one shade darker than your natural hue and finish the style by dabbing on a bit of gloss on the center of your lower lip for a natural glow.
