6 Photo Posing Tips You Can Learn from Jennifer Lawrence
Here's how not to look awkward
Remember that Academy Award winner who has fallen not once but twice at the Oscars? Well, Jennifer Lawrence has really upped her game, poise-wise, in her recent red carpet publicity barrage. We’ve taken a few cues from her on how to pose and wear makeup for photos--because if our imaginary ride-or-die best girlfriend can look pretty and happy on a press tour, we can hack a family dinner snapshot.
Here Lawrence modifies that age-old mom wisdom about always keeping your shoulders back--she holds them back, then pushes them forward a bit so the collarbones get all defined.
For heaven’s sake, float your arms away from your body a bit so your limbs don’t look like a fallen tree trunk. Lawrence has gotten the memo in this shot, but not her costar Jena Malone (to the far left, next to Natalie Dormer). This video explains exactly how it's done.
Sport a Bold Lip
Bright reds, pinks and corals, topped with a bit of gloss, will add color and plumpness to your smile.
Take a Test Selfie
Before you leave home or your guests arrive, take a test selfie to see how your makeup is reading on camera, then adjust as you see fit. Or have a rabid fan hold the camera, whichever works for you.
