a picture's worth a thousand words

it's almost school time again, and we all know what that means... picture day!!! most people live to hate their school pictures, and i think it's time we put an end to that! i really like all of my school pictures, and here are a few tips so you can make your picture perfect.

on the top-

  • wear solid or very simple patterned tops. your ultra-busy flowered top will distract from your beautiful face, and you definitely don't want that!
  • find a unique, interesting, or flattering neckline that you like. the best examples of good necklines are v-necks (my personal fave!), scoop necks, and necks with embelishment
  • wear a color that works well with your skin tone and hair color. on blondes, turquoise, green, and brown are perfect. redheads should stay away from pinks and reds. brunettes look amazing in reds, oranges, and purples. if you are very pale, don't wear white/grey/etc. still, these are only loose guidelines... wear a color you feel best in!
  • stay away from sleeveless tops, logo tees, and anything with writing.
on the bottom-
  • it doesn't really matter what you wear on the bottom, since most pictures only capture your top half.
  • wear whatever is comfortable, but be aware that you may run into people you know while getting your picture taken. classic jeans are always a safe choice.
accessories-
  • keep it sweet and simple. nothing too big, flashy, or distracting.
  • a simple necklace to fill your neckline is always a good idea, along with small (no dangles!) earrings.
hair and makeup-
  • don't get your hair cut too close to the picture day. it's important to get it cut at least 1-2 weeks in advance so that you have time to get used to the style before the picture.
  • something i've done since my sixth grade picture was to go to the salon to get my hair done the morning of the photo! when that isn't possible (like this year for me), don't stress. when you get your hair cut/done, ask your stylist how you can do the look easily at home.
  • for your makeup, go light and simple, since caked-on makeup will look absolutely ridiculous in a picture. just do your normal routine... if you don't normally wear makeup, ask your mom or older sister to help you put on a little blush, gloss, and anything else you might want (i recommend a little eyeliner to make your eyes pop!).
  • bring a hair brush/comb and some makeup with you so that you can touch up any stray hairs or smeared makeup before you get your picture taken.
want to see my picture day outfit?? look no further! here it is::

don't worry i won't be wearing my sunglasses in the picture! i'll be wearing a tinted moisturizer, pink blush, some thin black eyeliner, pink gloss, and my hair's going to be straight.


say cheese, girls! hopefully, i've helped you feel confident and ready for picture day!
