Whenever you’re taking a selfie, there’s always that feeling that the camera angle may not be doing justice to your flawless makeover. What looks shimmery and smooth in the mirror can turn out pale and dull once it’s exposed to the bouncing light of a smartphone camera.
If you’re a selfie enthusiast, it’s a good idea to get a smartphone that’s got your back when you don’t have time to apply the perfect makeup. The Huawei GR5 2017, for example, lets users customise their own beautysettings for automatic enhancements, including instant digital makeup that smoothes and brightens the skin. On top of that, with ‘panoramic selfie,’ the Huawei GR5 2017 ensures a wide angle selfie so that the whole gang is in the shot and looking their best.
But until you get your hands on the Huawei GR5 2017 with all of its selfie-friendly features, here are five key makeup tips to photo-proof your look for great photos every time.
Start with the primer
All great selfies start with smooth, natural-looking skin. Give your face a healthy glow by applying a layer of primer before you do anything else. Primer is velvety and lightweight; evens out your skin tone, hides imperfections and provides the perfect base for a smoother, longer-lasting layer of foundation.
Try a touch of highlighter along key areas of your face – the bridge of your nose, your chin, your forehead and, of course, your cheekbones! Highlighter is basically a smartphone filter in real life, because it makes your skin look dewy instantaneously.
Try yellow-tinted powder
While some finishing powders are shimmery, causing the camera’s light to be reflected away from your face and make you look washed-out, yellow-tinted finishing powder provides brightness and warmth in selfies. It’s like adding a golden-tone smartphone filter to every single selfie you take!
Frame your eyes
Every great photo needs the right frame, and so does every beautiful set of eyes! To frame your eyes, start with black eyeliner along your upper and lower lashlines. A skinny brush and black cream eyeliner are perfect for getting this delicate yet dramatic line just right. Finish by applying a coat of black mascara to the upper and lower lashes; be sure to saturate the bottom of the lashes, then brush out to the top to make your eyes look even more bold and voluminous when the camera snaps.
Paint your lips
The right tone will be just slightly deeper than your normal lip shade; adding depth and shine to your smile, without overpowering the whole look. Whatever shade you choose, be sure to apply it with a lip brush for maximum control to help you achieve perfect balance and coverage.
