Lighting can strongly influence the outcome of a photo. Unfortunately the camera flash is an expert at picking up excess shine on your face. Applying a makeup primer underneath foundation will keep your complexion matte and marvelous. Try to avoid light that hits you from above, as it will create unflattering shadows on your face. To avoid this, stand behind the sun and stay clear of overhead lights. To further decrease possible shadow casts, tilt your head up. Any good modelling photographer will tell you these tips, but you need to remember them yourself for photos of your social life.
To avoid a double chin, always have the right camera angle. When the camera is pointing down the way, your face looks leaner and your jawline is more defined. When the lens is at eye level, stick your chin out slightly more than normal so as to better avoid any extra chins sneaking in. For extra radiance in your photos, enhance the whiteness of your teeth with whiteners. For kissable lips, apply a layer of sheer lip gloss and away you go.
