1. Lighting

Or should we say highlighting is the key? The key to a good selfie is letting the light hit the planes of your face that you want to accentuate for radiant and healthy-looking skin. 

Try Ofra Glow Up Highlighter Palette or Pop Beauty Pow Wow Powder in Strobin Glow

 

2. It’s all about the base

Use a blurring and mattifying primer if you’ve got uneven skin texture and wrinkles. Avoid using base products with high SPF content and make sure your face makeup is the same color as your neck.

3. Made you blush

The key here is to fake a healthy flush that looks natural and undetectable. Cream blushes and cheek stains are perfect for this.

4. Contour on Fleek

Avoid contour powders with warm undertones and choose a powder 2 shades darker than your natural skin tone for contouring areas like your nose. Always start a little at a time and blend thoroughly to avoid harsh lines and angles.

5. Plump up the volume

This goes for lashes and lips. Curl your lashes and apply generous coats of non-clumping, lengthening and volumizing mascara to make your eyes pop. Line your lips slightly beyond your natural lip line and color them with your fave lippie for sexy and pouty lips. Apply clear gloss in the middle if you’re into he glossy lip look.
