Some Tips on How to Get a Picture-Perfect Smile
Having a beautiful smile will help you hide your other flaws and will make you the center of your group picture especially in this age of photo streams and selfies. But we are caught with concern if we do not have that picture-perfect smile.
No worries because if your smile is not as beautiful as you want it to be, there are many things that you can do to improve it and ensure that you always look fantastic when you have that photo shoot.
Our number one pointer is for you to maintain your good tooth hygiene practices in order to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Be aware that teeth in poor condition are difficult to hide unlike the other flaws on your face, and so it is advisable that you brush your teeth around two minutes two times a day, floss on a daily basis, and go to your dentist for check up regularly. It is recommended that you go and see a cosmetic dentist if your teeth are in poor condition, and this dentist will help you improve your teeth and give a boost of your confidence.
Next tip in having that picture-perfect smile is to look after your lips because it is said that a smile is 50 percent teeth and the other 50 percent are your lips. Thus, if you have not been taking care of your lips, you can start now by keeping them healthy. Keeping your lips healthy is actually very simple because all you have to do is to exfoliate them with a light sugar scrub once or twice per week, moisturize daily and before going out, apply an SPF lip balm.
A great beauty hack is using lip plumping serums and hydrating lipsticks, which is a cosmetic way to give your lips a more luscious look and make you stand out when you are taking your picture. Also, if you choose a lipstick, to make your teeth look a little whiter than they actually are, go for a color that has blue undertones.
Applying some bronzer on your face is our next method, a trick that many models use, in order to get the contrast between your face and teeth, thus enhancing your teeth to look whiter.
Making your teeth really sparkle on camera will lead us to our next tip, and this is to apply water on your teeth right before you take your picture. With the water on your teeth, your smile will look amazing on camera because of the sparkle that the water created.
Matching your smile to your face shape is actually a big help, although you might not think that there is a right or wrong in smiling, and this will improve how your smile looks. Take note that if you have a long face, make a wide horizontal smile, and if you have a heart or oval shaped face, you do a more diagonally wide smile.
