We all love a good selfie! Why!? You can chose the most flattering angle, the best lighting and try out different looks!
However selfies can be time consuming and frustrating! How do all the top models like Alexis Ren do it? Well we are here to share our secrets so you can take the perfect selfie and have it uploaded in minutes!
1.Time: Make sure you give yourself some time and space on your own to nail your selfie technique.
2.How close is too close?: Extend your arm! Find the easiest way to hold your phone as far away from your face as you can. Make sure you are comfortable enough to click the button without shaking or getting uncomfortable fast.
3. Lighting: Try to have the light hitting your face, avoid direct sunlight. When the light hits your face it is far more flattering and makes your skin glow!
4. Angle: Try to take the photo level slightly higher than your eye level. Never from below or far above these are rather unflattering angles.
5. Edit: Be Subtle! Do not over edit or put on odd filters that make your skin look orange. How do you make your skin look orange? Too much saturation!!! Increasing the brightness plus a little saturation looks awesome. Check out VSCO app too, they have really beautiful filters.
6.Background: Get creative Mermaids! Beachy backgrounds, coloured walls and cute signs all make your selfie just that little bit more awesome!
7.Don’t take it too seriously: Selfies should be fun, your perfect selfie may take a couple of takes! But don’t get frustrated with trying to pose the perfect pout! Play around, your friends and followers will enjoy seeing some fun faces too!
8. Don’t over do it!: We love selfies, but don’t over post them we think 1/7 ratio is a good amount.
