4 Ways to Look Better in Pictures

Do you ever feel really un-photogenic? Like your smile in real life is a whole different story than in pictures? Trust me, I'm with ya. I feel like these days, people are snapping pictures non-stop. You get caught in your not so best moments and next thing you know, the picture is on social media for the whole world to see. A little scary, am I right?!

After researching a bit, I have come up with some helpful tips for looking your best in pictures!

:: Dress Accordingly ::
If you know you will be going somewhere where pictures will be taken, wear things that you know look flattering on you. One color ensembles are great, like navy on navy and white on white are some of my favorites!

:: Say No To Below ::
Never be photographed from below; it's the most unflattering angle AND it can make you look bigger than you actually are. Even though you usually can't control it, the most flattering angle is slightly above you. This way, your neck and torso are elongated which then makes you appear taller.

:: Turn Your Body ::
Ever wonder why all the celebrities slightly turn themselves when being photographed? It's a more pleasing angle! Turn yourself a little bit sideways toward the camera, with one foot in front of the other. Next, point your toe to the camera and put your weight on your back foot.

:: Cover It Up ::
If you are donning something that's a little tight or detailed around the middle, it could look bigger in photos, even if it is fab in person! Hold your bag right in front of the area to hide it in pictures.

I hope this helps!

  1. I think turning and putting your hand on your hip makes your arms look skinner. No one wants pictures with flabby arms!
