Good lighting and flattering angles are both important elements when It comes to taking the perfect selfie. However, product choice is everything, which is why we’ve put together a guide detailing our absolute fave products available on RY, that’ll have you looking picture perfect every time. No filters needed!
Prepping your skin with a hydrating primer that blurs imperfections and brightens will result in naturally-flawless, selfie-ready skin. We are currently obsessed with the HydraBlur Primer by Dermalogica, which gives a silky finish to the skin. If pores are a concern try PIXI’s Flawless & Poreless Primer. It actually contains Salicylic Acid to clear the skin while it primes!
A smooth and bright under-eye area will ensure you look healthy and awake in your selfie. We love channelling our inner Kim Kardashian by applying concealer in an upside down triangle shape under the eyes, to take the focus away from eye bags and puffiness. If you’re after full coverage, try the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer. If darkness is your main concern, try a concealer with a slightly more peachy undertone to correct this and to brighten. We love the glo minerals Corrective Camouflage, which contains peach and lavender shades to correct discolouration.
Complete your base by using a hd powder. Not only will this set your face, helping the makeup stay flawless all day, the micro-fine particles will fill in fine lines and blur imperfections, creating a soft-focus effect on the skin. We love Youngblood’s Hi-Definition Powder Translucent for beneath the yes and Elf Cosmetics’ Perfect Finish HD powder for the remainder of the complexion.
A bold, statement lip is perfect for photos. Try something with a blue-based undertone to make your teeth appear whiter, we love Tango by Gorgeous Cosmetics. Another top tip is to make sure you prep and hydrate the lips before applying anything with an ultra-matte finish, to keep them looking fresh and smooth. Our favourite is the Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Lip Conditioner, which hydrates, softens and protects lips.
Enhance your cheekbones and brighten the inner corner of your eye with a subtle highlighter. Highlighters can sometimes enhance texture (in both real life and photos) so apply sparingly and ensure to blend the product well! PIXI’s Glow-y Gossamer Duo in Subtle Sunrise delivers the most beautiful, natural glow that we’re obsessed with. For something a little more intense try cult favourite Rodeo Drive by OFRA
