Celebrities and models likewise have a lot of tricks up their sleeves that help them always look beautiful, sexy and charismatic in pictures.

Here are 12 celebrity posing secrets that will teach  you to highlight your best self in front of a camera lense.

Tip 1. To make your lips look fuller, breathe out through your mouth

Charlize Theron always uses this hack when she takes pictures, that's why you can always see a little gap in the middle of her lips if you look closer. At the same time, she isn't tensing up her jaw muscles, so the effect still looks very natural and elegant, unlike the infamous "duck face" pout.

Tip 2. To smoothen out the fine lines around your eyes, open your eyes wide
