10 Tips to Be MORE PHOTOGENIC and Look Good in EVERY PICTURE!

January 13, 2022
The other night I was walking around my neighborhood at night, wearing my reflective safety vest and orange hat. As I walked past this bar with all of the pretty & sexy people having drinks, I heard someone  yell, “Hey alpha!” The guy comes up to me, and I make jokes about my outfit. Before we say goodbye, he wants a picture. I don’t want to; however, I take off my ‘crossing guard uniform’ and take the picture with my jacked-up hair. I leave mortified.

This incident was the inspiration for this video — how to look better in every picture. Personally, I hate having my picture taken, and I’ve come to realize that I am not that photogenic. But, the good news is that I’ve learned ways to look better and be more photogenic in every picture.

  1. Perfect posture — chest up and shoulders back, standing like you’re proud but not overly cocky. Make sure your chin is up too.
  2. Elevate the camera angle slightly — don’t take pictures too low or even straight ahead. Elevating makes your face look leaner and chin more defined.
  3. Face the light — don’t have the light source behind you, which casts shadows over your face. Have it directly in front of you (but not high).
  4. Wipe off facial grease — oil on your face will bounce and reflect light. In a pinch, you can use the back of your hand over areas prone to grease prior to the picture.
  5. Have a strong hair game—  a lot of times, I judge my picture based on how my hair looks. Take care of your hair loss with Bosley.
  6. Be purposeful with what you’re wearing — avoid wearing white, which can make you look larger and washed out. Avoid horizontal stripes and big patterns as well. Bright colors shouldn’t be worn; instead, wear muted and subdued colors.
  7. Learn how to smile better — jam your tongue against the back of your teeth to allow your face to relax.
  8. Find the right pose — discover the angle that makes you look best by practicing in front of a mirror. If you’re taking a picture with a group, turn your feet at a 45 degree angle to make yourself look taller and leaner.
  9. Whiten your teeth — your smile will look better in every single picture with whiter teeth. Whitening strips are effective and affordable.
  10. Don’t try to look super tough or sexy — instead, have one hand in your pocket and the other hand chilling naturally or holding something like a drink. You could also stick your hand over someone’s shoulder (depending on the height) if you’re with someone else.  Go for the waist if you’re shorter or do the double-shoulder-grab if you’re the same height.

Gentlemen, remember you get what you pay for. Sure cheap products save you a few bucks, but what’s the actual cost to your body for using them? ⁠ ⁠
Cheap products have been shown in scientific studies that the parabens in these products can disrupt hormones, harm fertility, and increase the risk of cancer. They can also cause skin irritation and irreversible damage to hair follicles. No thanks! ⁠ ⁠
Skip the cheap products and make sure to grab something Paraben-Free. Your body will thank you!⁠ Check out Pete & Pedro products!
