How to Look Thinner in Pics

Such an experience can be very disturbing and you might end up feeling so frustrated about yourself. The truth is, you are still as beautiful as ever. After all, your instincts cannot lie you. The problem is not you but the picture.

Surprisingly, cameras are said to have the ability to change your appearance significantly. In other words, they are liable of making even the people who are very skinny look fatter. Luckily enough, professional beauty bloggers as well as photographers have already known the secret behind looking more sexy and thin in photos. The best part of the story is that they have been kind enough to share their secret with the rest of the world.

Here are a few easy tips that will help you look sexy in photos

  1. Avoid patterns

Bold patterns have a way of attracting the attention of unflattering curves. They should be avoided if one wants to look thinner in the photo. Instead, you should outfits that are single colored as they are said to create clean and clean lines that in turn elongate the body making one look slimmer.

  1. Let your chin stick out

In case you are avoiding a double chin, then that’s easy. Simply let your chin stick out as that will give the jaw an attractive and more elaborate look. Perrie Samotin suggests that you let your tongue stay on your mouth’s roof in order to stiffen the facial muscles.

  1. Learn how to appropriately hold your body

You can move back what you want to appear smaller and move forward what you want to appear bigger. Models for instance tend to stick their backs far from the camera and typically push their shoulders or bust towards the camera. As a result, the models always look incredibly beautiful and sexy.

  1. Avoid placing your arms at your side

One of the prominent fashion blogger – Marianna Hewitt points out that one should avoid placing their arms at their side in the pictures. This is because this literally makes your torso and shoulder appears to be wider than they really are.

However, placing the hands on the waist , holding them back or even placing them by the hair makes the picture look slimmer and gorgeous. Try a waist trainer too. It will press your belly into the right shape.

  1. Bulky clothing should be avoided

Most people tend to think that tight-fitting clothes emphasize the unwanted curves. On the contrary wearing bulky clothes makes people appear heavier than they actually are. However, going for fitting and light clothes will definitely make you look slimmer and beautiful in the picture. Loose clothes make you look ridiculous in real life. Why on earth do you think they will make you look good in pictures?

  1. Sit/stand straight

Note that slouching will only make you appear shorter and even give your body undesirable shape .On the contrary, an upright posture will elongate your figure and this will in turn make your torso and legs look slimmer.

  1. The pictures should be taken from above

Looking up for the picture literally covers up your double chin. This can only happen if the picture is taken from above.

The Ultimate Guide to Dating in Your 20s

Along time ago or perhaps not long ago depending on the reader, the art of wooing a woman with pure chivalry was real. Back then, dating was fun because people used to have real conversations facing one another, used to send each other letters and love was in the air.

However, today, the social media and electronic gadgets have taken over everything. Do you know how many relationships are borne and ended on Facebook even before the two concerned people meet? What does this mean for dating then? Is it all gone and finished? Apparently not, if you are smart. There are a few things that you can adopt, which would turn you into a serial dater if you like.

Always go face to face whenever possible

No phone calls, no messages and no Facebook Messenger. Most people think that these apps build relationships, but they do not. If anything, they just destroy the real personal time that you would go on to have with a person that you like or love very much. Conversation is long gone, and whatever is remaining is not enough to be sustained out of topics like video games, apps and movies. With a text message only needing you to type 160 characters, well, that is not enough to have a good conversation, is it?

Don’t become a clinger

Do not be the kind of person who clings desperately once you find someone who can love you. You need to show that you have, or can have a life on your own. Calling and texting every hour is considered in the same terms as evil, and you do not want to do that. Do not become too curious. Curiosity killed the cat, and it can kill your relationship. Take things easy, one day at a time.

Be a keeper

You should be a keeper, not someone who plays with other people’s feelings, stringing them on and making them think there is love in the offing while there is none. Once you find the right person, keep them! You cannot imagine how many people’s hearts languish in pain just because they do not have anyone to love. Make your partner happy in every way possible.

Control your love fears

We have all been dumped, and we have dumped some people too. We know just how heart wrecking it can be. It is like the ripping apart of two souls that had hitherto been tied together by love, and time. With this kind of experience, we develop fears and we start building barriers over our hearts.

We become too fearful such that even when we find true love again, we do not recognize it. If you do not learn to forgive, let go and bury the past, well, you could spend many loveless years because of fear. Do not live in the prison of romantic fear. Learn to dust yourself up and move on.

All men are not the same. All women are not the same. Go out there and find love again.

Inject some oomph to your confidence

Lack of confidence and low self-esteem are the greatest push-offs. They are like two signals reading “persona non grata” on your face. People, meaning potential suitors just reject you even before you have shown your interest in them. So, self-train, or take a therapy to boost your confidence as much as possible. This shows that you have accepted yourself, your strengths and weaknesses and that you are happy with who you are. If you are happy with who you are, well, other people can accept you much easier.

Find someone you are compatible with

Love is not the sublime reason. Sometimes, you will wake up and wonder why you moved in with such a person in the first place. At such times, you can only fall back on one thing, friendship. So, find a person you are compatible with, a person that you have many things in common with.
