We live in an era where people don’t click pictures only on special occasions, to make memories. Our after-office parties are not limited to Friday nights nor do we know when we’ll have to pose for a group picture. Thus, it’s necessary to keep your face looking camera ready at all times.
Want to learn how to do that? Here’s what you can do…
- Start with a primer
- Embrace matte foundations
- Avoid under-eye mishaps
- Trust translucent powder
- Pick liquid liner
- Fill in your brows
Start with a primer
A camera lens can capture even the most minor flaws. Thus, skipping primer means making your fine lines and uneven texture appear more prominent. To set the base right, always start with a primer to give yourself a smooth canvas to work on.
Embrace matte foundations
Oily skin is a strict no-no for pictures, it will make your face look shiny AF. However, if you have dry skin matte foundations can look unnatural and unrealistic. The safest option here is to go for a creamy matte or soft matte formula such as the Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr. Its feather-light texture blends smoothly and leaves you with a matte-powder effect.
Avoid under-eye mishaps
Applying concealer to cover dark circles is a great idea, but most people forget to match it with the rest of their face. And that’s where they go wrong and end up looking funny in pictures. The trick is to mix your concealer with a little foundation before applying.
Trust translucent powder
If you have an oily t-zone and need to carry blotting papers to get rid of it from time to time, invest in a translucent powder. Dust it on your oily t-zone after makeup to control excess oil and make your face look less greasy in pictures.
Pick liquid liner
A thin line of liquid liner close to your lashes will look stunning and natural in pictures than one drawn using a pencil liner. Ensure you use a matte texture as the other types can look shiny and unnatural in pictures.
Fill in your brows
Brows define and give your face a balanced and contoured look. Filling your brows lightly with a pencil will make them look fuller. All in all, well-defined brows add definition to your face.
