Four tips for a camera ready smile this party season


Christmas is very nearly upon us and that means one thing… parties! And parties mean plenty of photos. Now, the prospect of being in front of the camera can be nerve wrecking for many of us – what do I wear? How do I style my hair? Which is my best side?

With camera phones constantly at the ready the one thing you can be sure of is that you need a great smile for that Christmas or New Year party around the corner. Have a look at these four tips for keeping your smile in tip top shape over the festive period.

Snack smart
No-one wants mince pie all over their teeth or a big blob of spinach dip to remember their Christmas do with, right? Make sure you pick the right snacks to enjoy when the cameras are out. Crunchy, raw veggies are a great option – think celery or carrot sticks. They won’t get stick in your teeth and they act like nature’s little toothbrushes.

Pick the right poison
Nothing says Christmas like a delicious glass of red wine, right? Maybe even some mulled wine! Unfortunately, your favourite tipple – whether it’s wine, dark spirits or a simple coffee – could well be staining your teeth. Choose clear or light coloured drinks to avoid discolouration. Or, if you can’t resist your favourite, then sip through a straw to reduce the risk of stains!

Don’t break the habit
Christmas is lovely but it’s also tiring. Socialising, shopping and spending time with every. single. member of your family can take it out of you. That could leave you tempted to fall into bed in a heap and leave the usual face wash and teeth brushing routine to the morning. Don’t fall into this trap! Keep up your usual routine to keep your smile stunning. If you want to go the extra mile for your smile you could even indulge in pre-Christmas teeth whitening.

Strike the perfect pose
Now’s the perfect opportunity to study your face a bit in the mirror to understand what angles work best for you. A ¾ degree angle from the camera, with your chin tilted down ever so slightly is often the most flattering. Ladies, make sure you pick the perfect shade lipstick that complements your skin tone and lets you show off your sparkling pearly whites!


Whether you’re out on the town or having a shindig at home over the festive season, make sure that you put your best smile forward with some of our favourite tips to get you through the obligatory Christmas photos!Christmas is very nearly upon us and that means one thing… parties!

  2. Always take photos in RAW-format, as it is a deal better for JPG. During processing in Photomatix and Artizen or similar tools http://besthdrsoftwaremac.com/ , the result will be more serious if you use RAW images.
