7 Tricks To Get A Perfect Smile In Photos


There’s nothing worse than having the perfect outfit and caption but ultimately ruining an Instagram shot with an awkward smile, right? But you don’t need to be a celebrity to know how to flash a glowing grin, though. Just follow these easy steps to have a perfect smile and remember

“Nothing beats a beautiful smile! And with selfies and instant photo sharing becoming a fad, a camera-ready smile is great to have.”

1. Never say cheese


This may sound weird to you but instead of cheese try saying words that end in an “uh” sound. like : “yeah” ” mocha” “grandpa” :p This will prove to be of great help. I promise.

2. Invest in a perfect lip color


Invest in a perfect red or pink lipstick with a blue undertone to make your teeth appear brighter. Colors like coral or orange often makes your teeth look yellow. Also, to add extra oomph to your smile, put your lip gloss underneath your lipstick and be ready to smile.

3. Sparkling teeth


Remember this golden rule: If you notice that in every photo your teeth aren’t as gleaming as you want them to be, then wet your teeth with water just before you have your photo taken to add a bit more sparkle.

P.S: While clicking a picture, show eight teeth as it’s the perfect number for that beautiful smile.

4. Laugh while a photo is taken


You will thank me for this every time you see your picture..critically just a little chuckle to yourself is all you need. If you need some help just try thinking about something funny like a joke or something.

5. Lift the tip of your tongue up behind your front teeth


Lifting the tip of your tongue behind your front teeth, will help in positioning your lips in a more natural way and give you a flawless smile.

6. Smile Accordingly


Smile according to your face shape. A longer more vertical face looks better by accentuating the horizontal aspect of the teeth. A wider smile will help a square face to appear more oval and balance out a heart-shaped face.

Know your angles and work accordingly. Tilt your head as you pose for photos. Most people don’t have perfect symmetry to their faces or smiles, so you may get a more flattering angle if you’re not facing the camera straight on.

7. Practice for perfect smile


Your perfect smile might not happen overnight. If you have a big photo event like a wedding or a graduation coming up, try out your grin in front of a mirror.

You can see how it looks and feels when you hold your shoulders back proudly and strike a natural, unforced smile. You can also play around with turning your head and finding your best angle.
