I Asked 3 of the Most Photogenic People on IG What Products They Always Wear

Anyone who has ever tried to take a selfie (aka everyone) knows that there’s an art to it. First, you have to find your light—nothing too bright, nothing too low—then your angle, and don’t even get me started on camera resolution. But once you’ve figured out those key components, there is a way to get outside help, in the form of beauty products. 

See, aside from the sheer je ne sais quoi of being photogenic, makeup, skincare and haircare products can sculpt features, tame flyaways, and otherwise add to your natural photo-readiness. From the best highlighters to catch the light to brow gels that keep hairs perfectly in place, certain secret weapons take photos to the next level. Don’t believe me? I asked three of the most photogenic people on Instagram—Sasha Mei, Sarennya Srimugayogam, and Who What Wear's own beauty director, Erin Jahns—for the products that help them feel their best when they pull out that front-facing camera.

However, she does still have her taste for carbohydrates, love of losing sports teams, and fear of driving during rush hour. She's been in editorial for over eight years as a social media manager and writer covering beauty, fashion, and lifestyle at Glamour and People. Most recently, she was the women's editor at Express. These days, in addition to Who What Wear, you can see her byline at places like Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Ipsy, and WeWork. Both a skincare obsessive and a minimalist, she keeps her routine short, sweet, and effective—and she doesn't go a day without sunscreen. She's also deeply passionate about sustainability, and she strives to recommend products she truly believes are worth the investment. When she's not writing about the best and brightest beauty finds, she can usually be found hunting for vintage and secondhand treasures, attempting to find zen at a yoga class, bingeing Bon Appétit YouTube videos, or napping under her weighted blanket.
