PROFILE PICTURE PERFECT
How to Achieve Your Best Facebook Profile Picture
| || |
|In today’s digital age, your Facebook profile picture can be just as important as your business card. Employers scan the internet before hiring potential new employees, old friends use Facebook to stay in touch, and more singles are meeting online now than ever. |
Given the popularity of the social networking site, it is important that you put your best Facebook look forward. Here are a few tips from celebrity makeup artist and skincare guru Dimitri James to help:
Smile with your eyes – think of something funny or naughty when taking your photo. You’ll be surprised at what a difference it makes!
The right type of light is essential to a beautiful photograph. Indirect natural lighting is most flattering. Never photograph with the sun glaring directly at you, above you or behind you.
For a thinner looking face, capture the photo from above, angling the camera down towards you. Look upward with your eyes and not your head.
Use matte finish bronzer to contour a full face, double chin, or crooked nose. Matte makeup that is slightly darker than your natural shade sculpts like a chisel when placed beneath cheek bones, under the jaw line or on sides of nose.
Always use a silicone matte primer, such as Skinn’s Orchid Gel Mattefying Day Treatment, before your photograph. This miracle primer smoothes out pores and imperfections and tricks the camera into seeing only perfection. Be sure to avoid makeup with a metallic or pearl sheen, as these do not read well in photographs.
Soft, supple lips look great in photos. Skinn’s Three Minute Lip Party Rapid Volumizing Mask offers the perfect plumping solution. Exfoliate and moisturize lips, then line with a neutral shade close to your natural color. Extend the lip liner to the lip line and fill with matte lipstick or colored lip gloss.
Before uploading to Facebook, use a basic photo editing software such as Picasa to brighten, sharpen, blur or remove blemishes.
