Strike a pose! We all love a good selfie. That’s why we’re here to teach you the best makeup tricks for your most gorgeous shots ever. Whether you’re snapping a shot for your Instagram followers or capturing your most treasured moments with friends and family, you’ll be captivating on camera!
Keep Your Blending Brushes Close
The art of blending is a makeup trick we ALL need to know, especially for your most stunning self-portraits! Most smartphone cameras these days are very high-quality, and pick up every harsh line, muddy patch, or unblended product on your face. That’s why you should take the extra time to blend beautifully before snapping your selfie!
Our Studio Pro Beauty Sponge is your secret weapon for expert blending! Use it to blend liquid foundation and concealer, primer, cream contour and more! The rounded base blends your cheeks, forehead, and chin for smooth, undetectable finish, while the pointed end gets hard-to-reach spots like the corners of your nose or eyes. Be sure to dampen your beauty sponge before use for the best results!
Don’t forget brushes! Quality makeup brushes are essential for perfectly-blended selfie makeup. Grab an extremely versatile brush set – like our Sculpt and Blend Fan Faves Brush Set – for a collection of versatile face and eye brushes you’ll love. May your eyeshadow always be blended and contour fierce and flawless!
Bold Eye Colors
One of the best makeup tricks for stunning selfies is bold eyes! Pastels may not show up on camera, or make you appear washed out. That’s why you should go all out with your eye makeup and make them the focus of your selfie!
Keeping in mind that glam makeup often appears more subdued in photos, don’t be afraid to be a bit dramatic. Our Glam Reflection: Smoke palette has everything for your smokey eye needs, including rich, earthy neutrals and cool jewel tones for your most sultry gaze. Of course, don’t be afraid to go for something a bit more elegant. Just be sure to blend, blend, blend!
Our Take Me Back to Brazil and Ultimate Neutrals palettes each contain a wide range of hues for your most breathtaking eye looks. Whether you want a killer cut crease, shimmery halo eye, or sultry smokey eye, you’ll make your eyes the center of your selfie!
It can be tempting to load on the highlighter for your most glam selfies, but matte is where it’s at! This makeup trick looks great on camera, as it doesn’t create a glare and keeps your face from looking greasy or oily.
Begin with a good primer! Our Studio Pro Mattifying Face Primer has a lightweight gel formula to hide imperfections and control shine for a flawless matte finish. It also provides all-day staying power and preps skin for fresh, natural makeup application. After you’ve applied primer, just add our Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer and Naturally Flawless Liquid Foundation for a camera-ready complexion!
We also have our Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder and 23 shades of our Liquid Lipstick Long-Wearing Matte Lipstick for more matte magic! If you just NEED a little shimmer in your selfie, be sure to stay subtle. Our Spotlight Highlight palette has 6 striking shades to apply to your nose, cheeks, or forehead. Just don’t be too generous with powders, or risk your face looking shiny or greasy!
Contour Like a Pro
Though we have some high-end cameras on our smartphones, they can occasionally wash out our features and make them look less sharp than we’d like. That’s why contouring and highlighting is so important! Check out our recent blog for makeup tricks to conquer your contour. You’ll have a slim nose, chiseled cheekbones, and a defined jawline in seconds!
Cream or powder contour works wonders for transforming your features, but we’ve found that the latter shows up more clearly on camera. For a touch of drama, grab our Studio Pro Contour Palette and use the silky, blendable powders to create a masterpiece.
