How To Look Good In Photos

  1.  First thing is to look out for are obvious pointers on fashion trends. You don't want to be too over dressed if it's a daytime shoot. The colours, textures, styles and patterns will all play a part in the over all look. Pick the ones you like and start to feed them into your current wardrobe. 
  2. The changing seasons will always have new and exciting colour elements for fashion and makeup. So try to add them to the mix. Pink is key this season. So if in any doubt add the shade with your nails, lips or accessories.
  3. Styles such as cold shoulder, ruffles and stripes are a big hit and in pictures they are really flattering.
  4. Patterns like florals and stripes for the summer months are great but watch the width! On camera they can really pile on the pounds. Its better to go for classic looks.
  5. Now when it comes to styling don't go for the obvious matching bag and shoes. It's so very 80s and not hip at all! Think about contrasting shades, textures or patterns. Make sure you add a pop of colour of your wearing neutrals.
  6. A cute scarf tired around your bag will lift a very simple outfit and give you a prop to use if you are unsure what to do with your hands.
  7. Neutrals are not colours in the fashion world but can look great on camera. Basic staple shades of white, cream, tan, grey, navy and brown work well but black is a bit of a no, no as it gets swallowed up
  8. Then add a mixture of 2 tones that your seeing in stores along with some texture and great makeup!
