3 Ways to Look Better in Photos (and the Beauty Products That’ll Get You There)

Never untag a picture again! Makeup guru and celeb photographer Davis Factor gives his camera-ready Dos & Don’ts.


“Tilt your head so hair is visible,” says Factor. Straight on, you can look like you don’t have hair!


1. “Do apply makeup in the lighting you’ll be photographed in so it’s not too heavy,” says Factor. “For natural light, avoid sparkle. It accentuates fine lines and ages you.”

2. “Do use a light-reflecting concealer to combat undereye shadows,” he says. We like Simply Vera Vera Wang Illuminating Concealer ($19.50, kohls.com).

3. “Do use an anti-shine product to keep skin matte. Oily skin gets shinier thanks to the flash.” Try Smashbox Anti-Shine ($27, smashbox.com).

Your Photo Essentials:


Factor’s must: Great Primer. He recommends Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer ($36, ulta.com)

Beauty Editor Addiction: YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking in No. 1 Deep Black ($30, yslbeautyus.com)

Our Pick: A Real Red. Try NYC New York Color Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red ($2, drugstore.com).
