Have you ever wondered how celebs take flawless photos over and over again? The secret lies in the makeup. The way in which you apply your makeup can change the way you look in pictures due to the lighting, flashes, etc. Check out a few of my favorite makeup tips for getting camera ready!Chelsea Crockett- photo ready makeup

  1. Make semi-matte makeup your new best friend. It will cover up any, if not all, blemishes, without giving you that “fake look” like complete matte makeup can. It won’t make your skin look shiny, but it won’t make it look flat either.
  2. Contouring is the best way to capture all of your features in the lens. It’s important to brighten and bronze in the correct places. Bronzer will keep you from looking washed out due to a camera flash.
  3. When it comes to eye makeup, it’s important to choose one or the other: a blended look or a sharp look. If you’re going for a more natural, blended look, be sure to blend in all of the eyeshadow colors and smudge your eye liner. If you want a sharp look, go for a bold, one color and straight eye liner line.
  4. Filling in your brows can be tricky. It’s hard not to make them look overly filled in. To avoid this problem, try using an eye shadow that is one shade light than your hair color. Lightly fill in your brows with a brush. This will keep them from looking harsh on camera.

If this doesn’t make you want to go take the perfect selfie, then I don’t know what does!
