No one likes standing in front of a camera, right? We suddenly become all awkward arms and dazed smiles. But we all treasure photos of ourselves with our loved ones. As a woman and as a (virtual) friend, I feel I owe it to you to let you in on my ONE tip for looking your best on camera.
It’s that simple. But also, counterintuitive! It feels like you should look up to avoid creating a double chin, but having your chin hit that camera lens first actually makes your face look wider. So start experimenting with looking down—even more down than could possibly feel natural. :) Trust me, it works.
My three-year-old has discovered the joy of clicking the button on the camera, so he is frequently begging to snap a few shots. He caught these of me the other night (which explains my end-of-the-day, almost vanished makeup). He snapped the first before I remembered my trusty trick. Instant improvement in the second frame.
Just don’t ask me what to do with your arms!
