Things to Do to Get that 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.
Do not be dismay if your smile is not that picture-perfect since there are some things that you can do to improve your smile and make sure that your looks are great in those candid shots.
Maintaining good tooth hygiene practices is our first tip, and this means keeping your teeth and gums healthy and clean. Note that you can hide other flaws on your face but the teeth in poor condition is not easy to cover up, thus, it is advisable that you brush your teeth at least two minutes two times per day, floss every day, and check with your dentist regularly. You can see a cosmetic dentist if your teeth are really in bad condition, and the professional will help you improve your teeth and boost your self-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. 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.
A great beauty hack is using lip plumping serums and hydrating lipsticks, which is a cosmetic way to give your lips a more luscious look and make you stand out when you are taking your picture. Another advice to make your teeth look whiter than they actually are, is to choose a lipstick 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.
Another good trick to make your teeth really sparkle on camera is to apply water on them just before you take your photo. The camera will take the water as sparkling teeth and this makes your smile totally fantastic.
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. 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.
