25 Tricks To Make You More Gorgeous in Photos

1 of 5

Some time of the  year can be a minefield of potentially awkward family photos, unflattering party pics and more snaps that just want to make you hit “untag.” Even if you love the way you look in person, it takes practice to make sure your in-the-flesh beauty translates on camera. The good news? Being photogenic is a skill you can totally master. Here are a few of our favorite tips that will help you bring out your inner Gisele.

 

1. If you tend to blink in photos, close your eyes just before the picture is taken and open them slowly before the camera clicks. No more half-closed eyes!

2. To avoid a double chin, elongate your neck and push your face forward a bit. Think of sticking out your forehead and tipping your chin slightly down. It might feel awkward, but it will look great — promise.
