Also, here are some tips from Wik­i­how for being photographed:

  • ‘Hide your blem­ishes. The bad thing about pho­tographs is that because they’re sim­ply frozen images of one angle in an instant in time, they can’t show all your good attrib­utes. The good thing about them is that you can eas­ily hide cer­tain fea­tures you don’t like. Be care­ful with makeup tones: makeup col­ors appear more intense in pho­tos. There are spe­cial prin­ci­ples and tech­niques for photo mod­el­ing that are dif­fer­ent from those for look­ing nice in per­son (though they’ll likely look just over­done, not bizarre, in per­son); learn and use them for crit­i­cal appli­ca­tions.[4]
  • Keep the shine down. It is so impor­tant to keep the shine down in the ever-troublesome T-zone — the top of your nose and your fore­head. While this espe­cially impor­tant on a warm day, even the coolest among us may get a lit­tle sweaty when faced with the lens of a cam­era.
  • Use makeup to cover skin red­ness, which will stand out in pho­tos.
  • A pho­to­graph (other than a stere­ogram) doesn’t actu­ally record the shape of any­thing but leaves it to be sub­con­sciously inferred from pat­terns of light and shadow. Shad­ing with makeup (there are guides to this) can make even an oddly mis­shapen face look con­ven­tion­ally beau­ti­ful so long as it is not actu­ally in con­flict with the actual light and shadow (ide­ally, use dif­fused light that doesn’t make its own defined shad­ows; in casual pho­tos and every­day appear­ance you’ll gen­er­ally look fine).
  • Use eye drops to clear red­ness in your eyes. Star­ing at a light source for a few moments will reduce your pupil size and reduces the chances of red eye (don’t stare directly at the sun though!). If some prepa­ra­tion is involved in the picture-taking process, how­ever, it’s best not to rely on a flash, par­tic­u­larly on-camera flash, and large pupils are gen­er­ally con­sid­ered more attrac­tive.
  • Brush your hair into place. Frizzy or loose hairs can appear messy. On the other hand, the hair should not be apparent–not slicked down thin against the skull and then behind the neck in a ponytail’
