Interested in learning how to pose the way a Beauty Queen does? Keep scrolling below!
1. If you’re going for a lowkey mysterious vibe, try facing your back to the camera while looking out onto the view. This way, the focus of the photo is both on you and the stunning scenery you’re surrounded by!
2. When in doubt, don’t be afraid to reach for props! Just like Catriona, you can try holding a cold beverage and twiddle with the straw in case you’re unsure of what to do with your hands. Don’t be afraid to give the camera a big smile while you’re at it!
3. Looking for a way to flaunt your figure? Catriona shows us how it’s done in this full-body shot of her side profile! Make sure to pop your leg and point your toe to elongate your legs even further for a more flattering angle. To avoid awkward arms, try tucking your hair behind your ear which also gives more shape to your pose!
4. An instagrammable breakfast calls for a cute photo and instead of taking a photo of your meal, why not take one with it? Plus points if you’re poolside with lush greenery behind you like Catriona is.
5. If you want to level up your half-submerged photo, try one where the camera captures the bottom half of your body underwater! As seen here on Catriona, the beauty queen poses as she swims among the fishes while also showing off her chic blue swimsuit!
6. While enjoying the sunset, Catriona makes sure to capture the gorgeous moment through a photo! Here, she sits on the edge of a pool while subtly popping her hip to the side to create a flattering S-curve silhouette.
7. It comes as no surprise that Catriona makes friends with island dogs as the beauty queen is a dog owner herself! If you come across these furry creatures on your beach getaway, snap a quick pic with them for an instantly adorable and candid shot!
