Profile Picture | Tips

But I look fat in that picture!  Girl, trust me you do not!  We need to see your beautiful face.

The profile picture seems to be the biggest hangup that our lounge members seem to have.  I understand how it is to be a mom and have a thousand pictures of your kids, your loved ones but very rarely do we get a good picture of us.  This is the part EVERYONE wants to leave out.  But this is so very important.

Tips:

Makeup- wear some!  Keep it natural if you are a more natural person but whip out your Savvy Minerals and enhance your natural beauty.

Posing-chin forward and down.  Not sure what that means google Sue Bryce Chin Forward & Down.  She is an amazing photographer and I love her.  But she is the queen of making women look their best-naturally.

Lighting- stand in front of a window (if possible)-light should be in front of you not behind.  No direct sunlight with harsh shadows.  We are looking for a soft natural light.  If there is an orange cast with harsh shadows you are in too much direct light and may need to find a new place to take your selfie.

Look professional-not a suit but do not wear a scummy t-shirt either.  Meet somewhere in the middle.  Always iron your shirt and look your brand.  If you are fun, energetic, spunky, full of life maybe try some bright fun colors.  If you’re natural, chill, one with the earth, dress in white with earth tones.  What ever feels natural to you should be the direction you go.  If you have a shirt on you would NEVER wear or a dress that you would never pick out-don’t post it.  Keep true to you….but just make sure it’s not the after 9pm, lounging on the couch, true to you 😉

Hair-  Don’t leave it a hot mess.  Wear it however you feel your best.

Background- do not have a distracting background.  Up against a plain wall (white or light grey is always the best) . Tip: Portrait mode on the iPhone works really well at blurring out the distractions in the back.

Family or no family-whatever you choose you must be in the picture and looking at the camera

Clothing-Solid colors look best.  If you want to wear a pattern keep it simple. No logos-unless it is yours.
