Show the Camera Who’s Boss With This Quick Red Carpet Tip From Neutrogena Celebrity Makeup Artist Amy Oresman

Red carpet beauty lesson

Ready for the red carpet!

Here’s a really great photo trick straight from the red carpet (well, sort of, by way of my hotel room and iPhone) and Neutrogena celebrity makeup artist Amy Oresman.

Amy works with a lot of celebs on their red carpet looks, so she knows a ton about posing for pics.


All you do is this: right before someone snaps your picture, you tilt your head at an angle from the camera — you don’t want to be looking at the camera straight on. Then, you roll your shoulders forward, tilt your neck forward, and tilt your chin down, and what this does is sort of elongate your neck and create more angles in your face, which for some reason just looks better in pics.

Hmm… It takes some practice to do it quickly without feeling goofy, LOL! But I think I can see a difference in the before and after pics.


Just a pro tip for the next time you’re either on the red carpet or, like me, taking pics in your messy living room at home with your cat.

Before doing the trick…

And after

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. It’s good to be home! Happy hump day to ya. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You mean “roll your shoulders BACKward, tilt your neck forward”, right?

    I must try this sometime – although my ballet training is screaming out against the chin down, shoulders forward thing. Talk about a way to crash out of your pirouette, LOL! (Assuming you were pirouetting down the red carpet, anyway)
