Number 1: The Makeup

Some people now make a living through Instagram and Facebook by photographing their makeup skills! Most of us are not at that level and don’t have time to get to it. But there are still a few makeup tips you can remember for taking a great picture. You may want to make your skin look as flawless as possible, but look for products without SPF. SPF features commonly in high street makeup and can be a lifesaver. It stops us skipping the annoying but essential step of applying sunscreen. But it flashes back in photographs. This can give us a strange white cast or “waxy” look to our skin. Try to just use concealer where you need it or seek out makeup with no SPF. Choose one feature to play up such as the eyes or lips. Playing up both can make it look like they are competing for attention. So just subtly draw the attention to one such as with kohl pencil or a pink lip. Finally, be sure to make the most of your bone structure. Not all of us have killer cheekbones or a strong jaw, but we can create one! Sculpting powders like the contour kit from Anastasia are very popular for making the features stand out. Follow a tutorial on YouTube and you can’t go wrong!

Number 2: Have A Great Background

Nothing looks a photograph look more striking and professional than a great background. Try to develop your photographer’s eye. Look for amazing landmarks, colours, or beautiful features. Posing in front of them can instantly raise your photography game. In can be easy to take a picture wherever you are standing, but put a bit of thought and effort into what’s behind you. It will make all the difference.

Number 3: Know Your Camera

A wonderful, modern camera with all the trimmings can make our lives easier. But it is not necessary to have one to take great photos. In fact, even if you have a great camera, unless you know how to handle it well then your photographs will still look bad! Put effort into getting to know your camera and you’ll achieve better results, whatever your budget.

Number 4: Relax!

Staying relaxed and happy in photographs is the key to making them shine. Photographs pick up subtle expressions and body language so it is important not to let tensions or worries get a hold. Think happy thoughts and your pictures will automatically look better. It will be more fun too!
