Things they don’t show us in the magazines

I was flipping a fashion and beauty magazine this morning, looking for new eye makeup tips , something that might cover the puffiness of my eyes- since i dont get enough sleep- and it hit me that most celebs and models almost don’t sleep at all- How the hell do they still look ¬†so fresh, radiant, fit, simply perfect!!!

Here is the answer ūüôā

Even the best make up artists and most expensive products may not hide wrinkles, cellulite, fat area around the belly,

¬†it may not really tighten your pores, thicken your hair locks, remove your shine without drying your skin…

so, RELAX… it’s all photoshop!

How to be photo ready…

¬† Breathe normally and relax your lips and your shoulders.¬†If you¬†hold¬†your breath you might¬†appear as though you’re tense¬†or suffocating.
 Choose solid or neutral colors that complement your skin tone and stay away from horizontal strips big patterns and single tones  
   Keep the shine down especially on a warm day, use a good pressed powder, and make sure your eye make-up is defined and not smudged.
 Point your nose away from the camera and learn which angle flatters your face best  
   Brush your hair into place. Frizzy or loose hairs can appear messy, also try to avoid pony tails.
¬†Don’t look at the camera; look through it ¬†
¬†Smile, think happy thoughts ūüôā

  • A peachy blush creates a healthy glow when placed high on cheekbones. To break up any semblance of a double chin, use a matte bronzer along the jawline.
  • Dust a light iridescent shimmer just under the eyebrows, on the inside corners of eyes, and along cheekbones for definition.
  • To add shine to hair, mix a silicone-based glossing serum with mousse for styling.
  • Highlights around the hairline should be one shade lighter than your natural color to amp up ¬†shine.


  • Avoid light colors or anything shiny on areas of your body that you want to detract from.


  • To help thin out your face, tilt your head slightly up and forward.
  • If you’re sitting, cross your legs to cut the apparent width of your body in half, then lean slightly forward.
  • In group shots, avoid standing at the end ‚ÄĒ that person always looks heavier.
