Photography makeup- Please Share Your Secret Tips~

How to take a great flawless picture:

We have all taken pictures where you look great in person just not flattering on camera- This has happen to me and I'm sure it's happen to a lot of you. The main things to remember :

1. NO SPF -sorry ladies anything with SPF can cause that white cast or anti-raccoon eye - so make sure no SPF in powder or foundation if you are taking pictures.

2. Keep looking up! That is, don’t look directly at the lens; look slightly above it. It brightens the eyes in pictures and makes you look more vibrant and alive

3. Posture: twist your body away from the camera, but keep your face looking forward.

4. No Blinking: close your eyes for three seconds before taking a picture. This will ensure that you don’t blink when the flash goes off.

5. Relax: try not to let your nervousness show. Relax your mouth and part your lips a little bit.

6. Use Oil Absorbing Paper Tissues- if you are really stuck have no powder head into nearest Ladies Room use a seat cover to blot your face- I even take the inside of the toilet seat covers (the part you throw away) stick in purse for a later time.

Please Share Your Secret Tips~ I will post them

Here's my tip from Makeup Guru website

To keep your foundation semi matte in a hot or humid climate -Simply squeeze a little gel anti-perspirant on the back of your hand and mix it with the foundation that you plan on using. This will not only keep the foundation in place, but it will require less touch ups! (Tip from Makeup Guru)
