Today’s question comes from Michele and she asks, How can I look more photogenic in photos, especially with other pageant contestants and at appearances?

Thanks for your Q, Michele.

5 Ways to Look Better in Your Photos

  1. Soften face for natural smile and eyes – practice in the mirror
  2. Practice posture, angles and expressions – I do mouth open and head tilt
  3. Wear colors that compliment your skin tone – I wear blues, black, pinks )mostly jewel tones)
  4. Pleasant makeup and excellent lighting
  5. Facetune app edit your image before you post it. Clear your skin, add a glow, even change your whole shape of your face.

That my dear, is how you look more photogenic in pictures.
