In the past, most women could take or leave a smile. After all, it wasn’t that often that people posed for a photo anyway. Now, there is almost a picture a minute thanks to mobile phone cameras and selfies. So, your smile has to be in tip-top condition if you don’t want to browse the images in the morning and cringe. And, the good news is you don’t have to be a celebrity. In fact, with these tips, any woman can obtain a killer smile.
The first thing anyone notices when a person smiles is their teeth. Your pearly whites stand out like a sore thumb, and you want that to be a good thing. As long as they are white and straight, your peggies will work in your favour. If they aren’t, a dentist is the best port of call. With their experience, they can fix any issues you may have and transform your teeth and your smile. Or, it is possible to perform some of the procedures at home. Teeth whitening, for example, is a practice that doesn’t need a professional as long as you follow the instructions on the box.
Prep Your Lips
Lips also have a big role to play in your smile. Why? It’s because lips that don’t pop can make your smile less appealing. Think about red lipstick versus no lipstick for a moment. No lippy adds zero value to your smile, whereas red accentuates your skin tone and makes your teeth appear even whiter. Plus, the right shade will hide any flaws which might get in the way. For instance, a dark colour like blue is very adept at hiding stains. For any smokers, this tip should come in handy. Oh, and don’t forget to try and make them fuller and juicier.
Photogenic people have one secret: they are natural. Whether they know it or not, these people don’t try too hard when posing for a photo. The result is one that looks casual and professional at the same time. Anyone that wants to replicate their performance needs to take a leaf out of their book. Instead of overthinking your pose, smile gently. A great tip is to try and laugh beforehand or imagine a scenario that makes you giggle. Then, your natural character should shine through in the final image.
Sure, it’s a cliché, but practice does make perfect. Okay, so sitting in your room taking endless selfies doesn’t sound very appealing. Indeed, it seems a little over the top. However, if you want a perfect smile in every photo, there is no point in hoping for the best. What you need to do is take it upon yourself to ensure that your smile is picture perfect every time a camera is around. And, the only way to do it is to figure out what works and what doesn’t work.
Hopefully, you will never have to worry about posing for a photograph ever again.
