Tips to look great in photos:
Wear bright lipstick. “Dark lipstick can have a minimizing effect on lips,” says Stiles. “Steer clear of a dark matte lip color. It can look aging and unflattering. Stick with brighter colors.”
To avoid a double chin, elongate your neck and push your face forward a bit. Think of sticking out your forehead and tipping your chin slightly down. It might feel awkward, but it will look great.
Think about angles. Facing the camera straight on is rarely flattering; instead, turn your head to a three-quarter position to give your features depth.
A photo shot from just above you is way more flattering than one shot from below.
Instead of having straight, limp arms and stiff legs, try bending them to give them life. Bend your arms and hold them slightly away from your body. This also helps create shape to your midsection instead of bulk. Keep your hands relaxed and slightly bent. Bend your front leg and place your weight in the back leg. Or try crossing your legs at the ankles. Pull your arm away from your body and bend it slightly to make it appear slimmer.
