In the selfie culture that we live in, you may find yourself staring into a front-facing camera, wishing this or that looked just a tiny bit better. While we’ll be the first to tell you that you’re gorgeous naturally, we totally understand wanting to look your very best in the next pic you post online. That being said, looking flawless on camera involves a few extra steps that vary from your everyday makeup routine—but it’s totally doable. Ready to take your best selfie ever? Grab some primer, foundation, concealer, highlighter, blush, and lipstick and follow the simple beauty tips below to get ready for your close-up.
Makeup prep starts with your skin care routine. Exfoliate your skin first with the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub. Then, follow up with a moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. Finally, apply a primer to help smooth and perfect the appearance of your skin. If your goal is to achieve a glowing, model-off-duty look, try using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Lock Primer. More of a matte girl? Try starting your makeup routine with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Primer.
Have dark circles under eyes or redness you’d like to hide? Having a few color correctors on hand can make a world of difference in how your skin looks. To make sure you’re well equipped for all your picture-taking needs, stock up on the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayons and apply accordingly.
Create a flawless canvas with an air-light foundation that won’t look cakey in photos. If you have oily skin, try blending some of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation onto your skin using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. If you want to pump up the glow factor in your pic, then smooth on some of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation instead. Regardless of which foundation you choose, finish creating your base with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, which is available in 14 shades to match every skin tone and undertone.
Camera flash can wash out even the most defined bone structure. Contour with a blendable bronzer, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Bronze It Bronzer, just under your cheekbones. When applying your bronzer, be sure to blend it out so that you don’t have any noticeable lines of demarcation.
For a natural-looking flush, dust some of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush onto the apples of your cheeks. When choosing the right blush color for your skin tone, make sure to look for the most natural-looking match. As much as you may like that hot pink color, the chance of it pairing well with ultra-light or ultra-dark skin tones is unlikely.
Highlighter is a great way to reflect light from the areas of the face you want to draw attention to, like directly above your cheekbones and the inner corners of your eyes. To get the look, try using the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette.
When it’s time to face the lens, you’ll want your eyes to pop. Lining the upper lid will make eyes appear larger and the lash line thicker. Use a smooth-gliding formula, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black, to define your entire upper lash line.
Lengthy, defined fringe makes a big difference in a selfie. To get the look, curl your lashes and apply one coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara, a fiber mascara. For an extra boost of curl, heat up your eyelash curler with a blow-dryer for a few seconds, check the temperature with your fingers, and then lightly clamp your lashes for a heat-encouraged lift.
A great way to pull your whole look together is with a standout pout that shimmers and shines while accentuating the fullness of your lips. To get the look, swipe on some of the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in the color of your choice. If you decide that you’re more of a matte girl, try using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick. Whichever you choose, your lips are sure to stand out.
