Pic­tures are a so­cial sta­ple, and with clicks aplenty on ev­ery oc­ca­sion, you’ll want to en­sure your face is pic­ture-per­fect in ev­ery snap. Here’s how to make the cam­era love you...

1 For gor­geous, wideopen eyes in pho­tos, ap­ply beige or taupe shadow to lids (use matte—glit­ter looks greasy). Ap­ply three coats of mas­cara for in­stant doeeyes, or don faux lashes— they may look a bit much in the mir­ror, but will look like nat­u­rally long lashes in pic­tures (as long as it’s not a close-up shot).

2 Crème bases can be cakey in pho­tos and stick con­ceal­ers can give an unattrac­tive matte ef­fect. So, prep face with a light re­flect­ing-based foun­da­tion for­mula that bounces light off any im­per­fec­tions, giv­ing a soft, pretty glow.

3 Wear a blush and bronzer. If you opt for just one, your face can look flat on film. Start with a bronzer on your cheek­bones and around the out­side of your face (like The Body Shop Bril­liance Pow­der); then, ap­ply blush just to the ap­ples of your cheeks.

4 A shiny gloss re­flects well in pho­tos. Layer on a coloured gloss, prefer­ably con­tain­ing SPF, for a more kiss­able photo-fin­ish.

5 In­stead of tack­ling the cam­era head-on, an­gle your body three-quar­ters to­wards it with a shoul­der closer, one foot be­hind the other and your weight on the back leg. This will make you ap­pear slim­mer in­stantly.
