How to Make Sure You Look Good in Photos - Devezin Cosmetics




Whether you're attending a big event or just taking a new Facebook profile picture, you want to look your best. These simple tips will help to ensure you're always camera ready.

Just about everyone has a digital camera within reach these days, so you never know when you’ll be caught on camera. Prepare for your next snapshot with these beauty and style tips for photos.

Love the Lens
What you may see as a flaw — a space between your front teeth, big ears, or tons of freckles — others see as endearing. Those are the traits that make you you, so use them to your advantage and embrace them with confidence.

It sounds like a ‘duh’ moment, but smile, says celebrity makeup artist Eric Devezin. It brightens up the face and makes you appear confident, which can really make the difference between a great photo and an okay photo.
 Confidence is essential, and if you’re having fun in the photo, your makeup and clothing will be secondary.

 A shiny T-zone doesn’t look attractive in any situation. Before applying your makeup, start with an oil-absorbing primer like Devezin Cosmetics Face Canvas/ Face Primer ($14.00)

Then, after applying your makeup, lightly dust with  Devezin Cosmetics Mineral Rice Powder ($22.50) Rather then having to carry around blotting papers to suck up excess oil throughout the day. This works exactly the same.

Emphasize Your Eyes
The secret is to focus on your eyes and add color to your lips and cheeks. Since cameras and flashes tend to make your eyes look smaller, take your normal eye makeup up a few notches, and make sure to use eyeliner says Creative Director Devezin.

Use a black liner on the top inner rims of your eyes to make your lashes appear fuller, and apply a nude or white liner on the bottom inner rims to make your eyes pop.

Open up your eyes by curling your lashes before applying mascara. If you’re preparing for a special event, add some false lashes to the outer corners for a more dramatic effect.

Find Your Best Angle
You never want a camera to catch you straight on or sideways, By varying your stance, tilting your head, or moving around, you can look ten pounds thinner. Look at photos of your favorite celebrities on the red carpet and practice posing in front of your mirror to find out which angles work best for you.

Dress for the Occasion
Since photos last a lifetime, you want to wear clothing and accessories that are simple and make you feel relaxed so you’re able to exude confidence.

Solid colors are timeless and a great choice for staged pictures — like head shots or engagement photos — that you’re going to refer to for a long time. Patterns may quickly become outdated but they can be perfect for capturing a fun, spontaneous moment.

Since you never know what angle you’ll be photographed from, you should think of a photo as capturing 360 degrees. That means the cut of your clothing matters, too. Always go for cuts that are close to the body so you don’t add unnecessary pounds for the camera. If you’re thin, you may want to add volume with a full skirt or loose blouse. To appear slimmer, opt for tailored cuts or straight-leg pants.

Brazilian Bikini Wax

An important step to prepare for a bikini wax is to avoid swimming or sunning oneself for a full 24 hours prior to the wax. After the waxing, you will want to consider the same for a couple of days. The skin can have some redness or bumping, which can be helped by ice. There is also the occasional ingrown hair, which can be iced, and then have anti-bacterial cream applied to ward off infection. Aestheticians recommend gently exfoliating the pubic area before the wax, and then doing so regularly after the wax to cut down on ingrown hairs. If you want to look your best in a tiny bikini, the Brazilian wax is the way to go. However, there are plenty of things you need to consider before showing up for your appointment. You need to get your body ready, but also consider your state of mind, particularly if it’s your first time. Avoid Trimming The ideal length of hair for the best bikini wax is between 1/8" - 1/4". Anything shorter will not deliver satisfied result…

Confessions of a Professional Makeup Artist

Whether I’m creating a natural, no makeup-makeup look or evening glam, how the face is prepped is key to a successful look. And while cutting corners can save time, there are a few must do's I always follow when applying makeup, and ones that happen before I even touch a brush to anyone’s face! Read on to check out the rules of beauty I rely on.

To ensure long-lasting makeup, always set your foundation. Whether it’s for a photo shoot or a celebrity client, I swear by the ULTA Makeup Setting Spray. I recommend the Mattifier Shine Eliminator option for those with oily skin, and Chill for those with dry or combo skin. And for those extra long nights, I suggest All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray to prevent makeup meltdowns. Tip: Mist setting spray onto your makeup sponge and gently tap onto the T-zone for a more concentrated application.
Always keep a nude, red and a brightly-colored lip stain in your desk, purse, or vanity at any time. In a pinch, you can add to cheeks…
