I was recently reading a Glamour Magazine on how to look good in photos. And with the family arriving for Thanksgiving and the annual Holiday photos being taken – now is the time to learn the tricks. Celebrity photographer, Patrick McMullen spills his secrets with these 4 easy steps.
1. Do glow in the right places. McMullen suggests shimmer on your cheekbones or under your brow bones to light up your face on film; skip your nose.
2. DON”T wear heavy makeup. “High-megapixel cameras work like a magnifying glass” says McMullen. Always pretty, sheer and red lips.
3. DO smile naturally. Go ahead, Glamour says to say cheese – but don’t go crazy. “Show your teeth, but not your gums,” says McMullen.
4. DON”T look too party-girl. Keep your drink out of the photo. It is also advised to do a quick check to make sure that everything else is where it belongs – pull back in the bra straps!
