Some Tips on How to Get a Picture-Perfect Smile
In this age of constant selfies and photo streams, having a beautiful smile will help you hide your other flaws and will steal the moment. There are unfortunately some of us who do not have that exactly picture-perfect smile.
Even if your smile is not as beautiful like those models, fortunately there are countless of ways that you can improve it and ensure that you have that picture-perfect smile in your selfies.
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.
The number two pointer is to look after your lips to have that picture-perfect smile, because they said that a smile is 50 percent lips and 50 percent teeth. So, now is the perfect time to take care of your lips if you have not been doing so 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.
If you are considering the cosmetic way, the use of lip plumping serums and hydrating lipsticks is a great beauty hack, and this will make your lips more luscious looking and will be an attraction on 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.
Another pointer is by applying some bronzer on your face, a trick that most models do, so that the contrast between your teeth and face will be emphasized because your teeth will look whiter.
Right before you take your picture, our next pointer is to apply water on your teeth to make them really sparkle on camera. Your smile will really look amazing because the water will appear as sparkling teeth on camera.
You might think that there is no right and wrong way to smile, but note that you can actually improve your smile by matching it to the shape of your face. 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.
