We’ve all seen celebrities posting the perfect selfie on their social media, leaving the rest of us to wonder just what sorcery they used to get that flattering angle, amazing makeup, and perfect lighting. Oftentimes, different filters, hours of post editing, and camera magic are the answer.
But what if you don’t want to use filters or photo editing and simply let your natural beauty shine through? There are a few ways you can learn how to primp and prepare for the perfect photo to make all of your social media followers jealous!
Let’s go over a few simple steps for starting the best selfie makeup routine, as well as what products you can use to make certain assets, such as your lashes and lips, shine brightly in your next photos.
Prime and Prep for Perfection
One of the first steps to the perfect filter free selfie is to properly prime your skin. We recommend starting with our I PRIME flawless blur gel to create a pristine canvas for the rest of your makeup. This flawless blur gel helps soften the look of wrinkles and other skin imperfections through the blend of botanicals, antioxidants, and plant-derived stem cells.
After that, we recommend moving on to one of our full-coverage SPF 30 mineral foundations. Our I CONCEAL line can be found in a variety of shades to match any skin tone perfectly. Whether you have a porcelain tone with a light touch of peach, a medium beige tone with shades of peach and honey, or a rich and warm mahogany tone, there is a perfectly shaded foundation for you.
They’re easy to blend into the skin with our I BEAUTY flawless foundation brush giving you a smooth and non-cakey coverage that conceals pimples and other minor blemishes while letting your natural beauty shine through on camera. Our foundations include a perfect blend of zinc oxide, titanium dioxide filters, and mineral pigments to give your skin a radiant glow.
Volumize Your Lashes
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so there’s nothing wrong with making sure your eyes and eyelashes are ready for your next photo op. When you want long and full lashes, or beautifully healthy brows, consider our I BEAUTY brow and lash enhancement serum.
Not only does it include an intensive blend of peptides, but it also contains a range of plant based stem cell extracts and conditioners to encourage healthy hair growth with less breakage. You’ll notice visibly thicker brows and more lavish lashes after just one usage making this a perfect quick fix for selfie day!
Plump Up Your Pout
Having the perfect pout can turn the average selfie into a wonderfully stunning display of your natural beauty. Neutral skin tones are all the rage and you can’t go wrong with our ORMEDIC lip enhancement complex. Its ultra hydrating formula will encourage a plumper pout, while the polypeptide formula increases the contour on your lips.
If you’re searching for a hydrating and replenishing lip complex that also comes with a spark of color, consider our ORMEDIC sheer pink lip enhancement complex. It offers the same great ultra hydrating and contouring benefits as the neutral tone, but enhances your lips with a sheer pink tone that’s perfect for your next selfie.
In order to get the best selfie, taking your photos outdoors is a great option to consider. Not only does the natural sunlight help provide the best lighting for your natural beauty and radiance to shine through, but you can also have stunning landmarks or memorable architecture as your backdrop.
But if you plan on spending time outdoors, it’s important that you protect your skin from the UV rays that can cause discoloration and other blemishes to your skin. That's why we love recommending our PREVENTION+® daily defense lip enhancer SPF 15.
Not only does it provide a solid SPF rating of 15 to protect your lips from UVA and UVB rays, but it also includes a hydrating blend of marine collagen microspheres, palmitoyl tripeptide, and 11% zinc oxide.
