1. Start by testing and making sure of the lights and flash

Flash could turn even the slightest beauty issues into a nightmare. So, when you know it’s going to rain ‘clicks,’ better step out after a flash test! After all, what’s the harm in testing the light while you’re at it.

2. Add a little dreamy effect of your own

A simply amazing camera trick that needs just a piece of wax paper. Hold it in front of the flash (but out of the frame, of course) and what it’ll get you is the perfect soft-diffused finish with a ‘to-die-for’ filtered effect in the photo.

3. The right angle could give you an edge for sure

Be it the angle of the camera, or that of your body, it makes a great difference. Use the tummy tuck – twist your shoulders diagonally towards the camera and don’t forget to straighten up the neck! Work your distance from the camera and never hold back from experimenting to find just the right camera angle!

4. Timing can work breathtaking wonders to your picture

You need to know both when and when not to press click for the picture-perfect look you are looking for. Trust me, you would want to escape ruining shadows of noon time over the flawless cool blue of dawn and the peachy warmth of dusk. Slight shadows = beyond-perfect picture recipe.

5. Don’t underestimate the magic the perfect background can play

White highlights your fabulous beauty while a messy background can draw the attention away. This little tip can make a great difference, believe me.

6. Take the frizz of the hair out of the frame

Use the brush for the clean princess finish or maybe not when  you’re going for the  naughty feel. It’s totally up to you!

7. Don’t forget your ears and neck while brightening up!

We tend to pay extra attention to making our face look beautiful, but the camera focus sees it all. So, be sure to even the overall look by applying foundation on your neck and ears as well. The result will surprise you.

8. We’ll go ‘eye first’ when starting the makeup this time

The sprinkle of eye shadow can hamper the subtle consistency of your foundation, so it’s better to do the eye first and move to the face next. Saves you a great redo, trust me.

9. Let the lashes add a lavish mystery to your look

The perfect layers of mascara and the volume from the eyeliner adds a wide awake dreamy look to your eyes, bringing in the focus and making your blinks picture-perfect!

10. Make the most of your awesome eyebrows

A strong eyebrow is all you need for giving structure and definition to your look with professional perfection. So, make sure to fill out your brows!

11. Add a dimension to your face with a bronzer or blush

Contouring highlights your best features and creates the dramatic magnetism of facial shadows in photographs. So, make the most of it to achieve the picture perfection you dream of.

12. Forget ‘Cheese’ (you’re on diet, ha!), say ‘Money’ instead (it has a way of making you smile magically, doesn’t it?)

Ah, the sweetness your fabulous smile adds! Don’t hold it back, let your teeth show and your eyes crinkle; it’s going to be magical. The heavy ‘e’ of ‘money’ is going to do the trick, and you’ll fall in love with yourself in the photo, I bet!

13. Add the final touch to your face with a masking tape

The stickiness of masking tapes is the perfect beauty tool. It captures all the rogue flecks of makeup off your face and soaks away the oils without spoiling your base makeup, saving you from getting hot spots with the flash (WOW!)

14. Make the photograph priceless with your picture-perfect confidence – and we’re done!

That’s the last ingredient in our recipe of picture-perfection – stay your fabulous self, it’s just a camera and the flash is not going to bite you! Look sharp, don’t fear, and you’ll be just awesome, I promise.

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
