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.
— Dimitri James, celebrity makeup artist

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.
— Lindsi Lane, Lindsi in the Fast Lane founder

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.
— Shelley GoodStein, model and blogger (A Model’s Secrets)  

Fake lashes and eyeliner are the keys to popping those eyes. Using an angled liner brush, apply a powder to the upper waterline, or inner rim. This defines the eye without closing it in. To boost lashes, apply short-strip lashes. Top them off with a little mascara, and you are good to go.
— Erica Maniscalco, New York makeup artist

To avoid a gummy smile, place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth. That keeps you from smiling too wide. Works every time!
— Elke Von Freudengerg, New York makeup artist

Avoid too much shimmer and frost when it comes to eye shadow. Keep it reserved to the lid, and use a matte shadow from the crease to the brow bone. 
Jessica Metivier, beauty expert on America Now

Tame flyaways. Make sure your hair looks smooth before taking a picture. To manage flyaways, spray a light-hold hairspray on a toothbrush and gently brush them down.
Julia Papworth, celebrity makeup artist
