Each actress, model, and person in the public eye has their own tricks that allow them to look good in photos. And it’s not just their best side that they turn to the camera or a winning angle they might use. There are many less obvious tricks that often contribute to their very dashing image.
We at Bright Side discovered some tricks of posing for photos from celebrities that can easily be used by ordinary people too.
1. Blake Lively raises her tongue to the roof of her mouth so that she won’t have a double chin.
In order to not worry about a double chin, Blake uses this simple trick. It makes the neck muscles contract involuntarily and the chin line becomes more clearly defined.
2. Nicole Kidman strains her neck so that her face looks better.
The proud posture of this actress is another way to outline the chin line. Nicole puts her shoulders down and pulls her head up, thus, straining the neck. This trick eliminates any possible skin imperfections.
3. Monica Bellucci raises her head.
The Italian actress uses this widespread trick when posing for photos — she raises her head and pulls her neck, thus, tightening the area around her face. In order to make the pose look more natural, Monica tilts a little to the side. One should be careful with this trick — if the angle happens to be unflattering, you might end up looking arrogant.
4. Taylor Swift bites her cheeks a little in order to enhance her cheekbones.
The American singer has a special bite that she uses wisely. When posing for photos, she often shows her teeth and at the same time bites her cheeks a little. It helps her to enhance her cheekbones. This trick can be figured out by the distinctive folds around the chin.
5. Megan Fox shows her tongue to look sexier.
The signature facial expression of this American actresses’ face is a slightly opened mouth and a slightly stuck out tongue. Megan enhances her sexuality with the help of this simple trick. Sometimes though, the actress looks a little weird but this doesn’t affect her charisma or attractiveness.
6. Julia Roberts wide opens her eyes.
The famous Hollywood smile of this actress hides a little trick. When smiling widely, Julia doesn’t squint, but looks upward. It prevents the appearance of small wrinkles around the eyes, while the look itself stays wide-open and a bit naive.
7. Jennifer Lawrence raises her brow and doesn’t focus her eyes.
The actresses’ signature facial expression is a slightly lifted brow and an unfocused look. In order to get this effect, Jennifer looks to the direction of the camera but, at the same time, she unfocuses her eyes, getting the effect of looking inside herself. It helps her create a mysterious, pensive gaze.
8. Mila Kunis puts her upper eyelids slightly down to make her look more sensual.
Wide-open eyes are the actresses’ main feature, not to mention the fact that she has mild heterochromia — her right and left eyes have slightly different colors. In order to make the look more sensual, Mila lowers and relaxes her eyelids. This trick can be only used by girls who have naturally big eyes, otherwise there is a risk of making your eyes look like narrow slits.
9. Charlize Theron exhales through the mouth.
In order to get the effect of a living and breathing photo, the actress uses a simple trick — she exhales through the mouth. It makes her lips look more voluminous but without the vulgar duck effect.
10. Meghan Markle bends her head in order to get closer to her audience.
In order to always look friendly in photos, just like a princess should, Meghan uses a simple trick — she bends her head forward and to the side as if bending toward an audience. Together, her kind smile, wide open eyes, and wave, make this pose very attractive.
11. Sandra Bullock lifts her shoulders to enhance the best features of her body shape.
By slightly lifting her shoulders, the actress strains her clavicle, thus, focusing attention on her toned figure. Again, the main thing is to not overdo it, otherwise the neck might end up looking too short.
12. Kirsten Dunst smiles with half of her mouth.
This half-smile is her signature trick and can be noticed in almost every one of her photos.
Each of us can find a signature trick when posing for photos. The main thing is to not get too hung up on one thing and remember that variety is important.
