We all like that little moment of self indulgence when a selfie you posted has a high number of likes which leads to more followers. But have you noticed that not all your selfies get attention? That just means that there are a few things you need to do to take the perfect selfie and look like you had that photo edited but in a natural way. Here are a few pointers for that perfect selfie:
The Right Light
Find natural lighting or take the photo in a well lit room. You want the light in front of your face, not behind you.
If the perfect lighting then create light on your face using light-enhancing highlighters down the center of your nose, brow bone and apples of your cheeks.
Never angle up, angle your phone down for the most flattering photo.
Pick A Side
We all have a favourite and most flattering side, tilt then click!
Strike A Pose
Develop a signature pose and show the camera some love.
Have Fun With It
Selfies are not meant to be serious, so have some fun with it. You might just get thee cutest selfie of all time from sillyness.
Enlist Some Friends
Get your friends to pose with you, some sassyness with your girls is an order.
Mirror – Mirror
Taking a selfie in a mirror ensures that your aim will be prefect, plus you can include more of yourself like your chic outfit for the day or night.
