Doesn’t it feel like someone is ready to take your photo every time you step outside? Camera phones, HD digital cameras and the not-going-anywhere craze for posting photos on social media mean we are constantly looking at images of ourselves – as is everyone else. Now that we’re entering the season of weddings and holidays, the opportunities for appearing on camera are ever increasing, leaving us (and probably you) wondering, how to look good in photos?

Some say the camera never lies, but photographs do have a habit of picking up shine, pores and lines that would never be visible to the naked eye, then capturing them for posterity (thanks smartphone!) Luckily, brands like Cover FX, Make Up Forever and Smashbox have created high definition makeup and skincare to give you a flawless, photo-ready finish every day.

If you want to learn how to look good in photos, always start with flawless skin. We give you the run-down of the best HD foundations on the market, ranging from inexpensive Revlon to luxury Dior.

Of course, to look good in photos, prepping your base is just as important as what you put on top, so we show you the very best primers and pore-minimisers. Once you’re done with your flawless base, add definition with contour and make your eyes pop with false lashes. With this magic make-up kit, you will look shine free, radiant and flawless in photographs.
