Rebekah George: Years ago you could bury a bad of photo of yourself deep in the family album and never have to think about it again, but that's not the case with digital photo which have a life of their own online.
Instead of pretending digital photos aren't going to happen, learn to look your best in them and you will really smile next time someone would start their Smartphone. Here are a few tips to keep in mind if you know you might be photographed.
Number one: Stop shine, opt for make-up with that matt finish and skip any foundations of bronzers with shimmer or luminescence which will read as shine on camera.
Another way to keep your skin matt, apply a pore filling mattifying product. You can apply it beneath your makeup and you can also dob it on top of makeup as a touch-up throughout the day. It cut shine and has the added bonus of softening the look of lines.
Number 2: Don't show you're roots. Nothing ruins a photo faster than visible roots. And you don't have to make a three-hour of salon trip every time you think there is going to be photos taken. New add home color foam makes touch up and color refresh easy with a no-drip foam formula and 100% gray coverage.
Number 3: Hide dark circles carefully. Flash lighting can make poorly blended under eye concealer visible in photos. You're under eyes looks lighter than the rest of your face. So make sure to use a creamy concealer that matches your skin tone exactly and blend it well.
Number 4: Pay attention to details. In high resolution digital photos everything is noticeable. So you don't want to forget to keep your manicure fresh so you look polished. Neutral polishes are less likely to show chips and they can help make your fingers look long and slim. Be sure to the also finish with a top coat for shine and chip protection.
And that's how to be photo ready anytime.
