HOW TO LOOK STUNNING IN ALL YOUR SNAPS

 

GO NATURAL

Shadows are only going to highlight features you don’t like, from wrinkles to imperfections. Lorna says natural daylight “is most flattering for skin and complexion” – facing a window or open door is your best bet.

ELONGATE

Want to look taller and slimmer? Lorna suggests tilting the camera upwards to elongate your shape. “I often ask people who take my pic to crouch down a little when they point and shoot.” Just ensure they’re standing a safe distance from you to avoid the double chin.

TWIST 'N' WIND

Front-on shots can sometimes look boxy, whereas a distorted angle will give the illusion of a tiny waist. Angle one of your hips towards the camera, and put your hand on your hip nearest the photographer to emphasise your curves.

CROSS YOUR ANKLES

If you are forced into a front-on shot, crossing your ankles will automatically make your legs look longer.

PROPORTIONS

Whatever is closest to the camera is, of course, going to look bigger, so practice posing with your least favourite body parts set back. Hate your legs? Lean forward a bit.

TONGUE IN CHEEK

If you often fall foul of a double chin, learning to push your tongue against the roof of your mouth could be the answer. By forcing everything upwards, your neck and jawline will look slimmer. 

STRAIGHT UP

Everyone knows good posture looks best, so make a concerted effort when posing for pics to unroll those shoulders and lift your head high.
