Get Camera-Ready: Makeup Tricks from the Pros

Get camera ready: Makeup tricks from the pros! Want to look gorgeous in those holiday photos? Here are some tips from the beauty pros on how to get camera-ready.
Use matte finish bronzer to contour a full face, double chin, or crooked nose. Matte powder that is slightly darker than your natural shade sculpts like a chisel when placed beneath cheekbones, under the jaw line or on the sides of your nose.

Buy a concealer pot two shades lighter than your skin tone. After applying your foundation and finishing powder gently, pat the concealer under your eyes in a crescent moon shape and above your eyebrows, from the top center tip to the end tip. This will highlight your eyes so they’re the focus of the photo.

If it’s a full-length shot, place your hands on your hips, but not evenly. Have one hand higher on one hip and the other hand resting a bit lower so you don’t look boxy.
— Hope Henderson, creator of the Beauty Mark app
For a photo-ready no-makeup makeup look, skip the blush. Instead, contour cheekbones with a powder bronzer, then hit the apples of the cheeks with a highlighting powder.
