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. There are unfortunately some of us who do not have that exactly 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.
Maintaining good tooth hygiene practices is our first tip, and this means keeping your teeth and gums healthy and clean. 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. To help you improve your teeth, if they are really in poor condition, you can see a cosmetic dentist and he or she will improve your teeth and give you that 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. It is actually simple to keep your lips healthy, and this you can do by exfoliating them with a light sugar scrub once or twice every week, moisturize them daily and apply an SPF lip balm before going outdoor.
Using lip plumping serums and hydrating lipsticks, which is a cosmetic way, is a fantastic beauty hack to give your lips the luscious look that will capture your camera. 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.
Our next tip is that you apply some bronzer, a trick that many models use to their face so that a contrast will show between your face and teeth making your teeth look whiter.
Another good trick to make your teeth really sparkle on camera is to apply water on them just before you take your photo. With the water on your teeth, your smile will look amazing on camera because of the sparkle that the water created.
Improving your smile can actually be improved by smiling to match the shape of your face, although you think there is no right or wrong in smiling. Know that if you have a long face, it is said that a wide horizontal smile will work for you, while a diagonal wide smile will help the heart and oval shaped faces.
