Tips for a Nice Smile
- Smile with your eyes, never force a smile by showing all your teeth in a joker grin. We know you have teeth, we just don’t need to see them all at once! Smiling with your lips closed can be authentic too, as long as you are conveying a real emotion with your eyes.
- You Should avoid smiling too broadly if you have a full upper lip. “Smile enough to show your teeth, but not so much to thin your lips. If your upper lip is thin, smile so that the bottom edges of your upper teeth touch your lower lip.
- Go with a berry and red shades or pink lipstick with a blue undertone to make your teeth appear brighter. Colors like coral or orange often makes your teeth look yellow. Put your lip gloss underneath your lipstick and be ready to smile.
- Evey one say “cheese,” which usually conjures an artificial smile. Instead, ask the photographer to throw out an unexpected word, like “money.” This will usually elicit a genuine laugh, and your expression won’t look forced, if you have a hard time smiling naturally, say words that end in “uh,” like “mocha” or “yoga” to bring the corners of your mouth up naturally.the lower lip will take attention away from the thin upper lip.”
- If you notice that in every photo your teeth aren’t as gleaming as you want them to be, then wet your teeth with water just before you have your photo taken to add a bit more sparkle.
- If your upper teeth are irregular at the bottom, or if some upper teeth are too long, smile so that the lower lip hides the bottom edges. Putting your tongue behind your teeth when smiling will relax your face.
- Just as with the haircut you choose, your best smile sometimes depends on your face shape. In general, people with oval faces look good with any type of smile.
- Those with longer, or more vertical, faces look better with smiles that accentuate the horizontal aspect of their teeth. The opposite is true for rounder faces: A longer-looking grin will balance out facial wideness. A wider smile will help a square face to appear more oval and balance out a heart-shaped mug.
- A model is constantly asked for different expressions and moods in a photo, but when it comes to smiling for real, you cannot fake it. You must be able to draw upon a happy feeling, whether in your memory or a funny joke, for a believable grin.
