How to Take the Best Selfie
When you’re taking a selfie to share with all of your friends on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, you want to look your best, right? Even if no one is around to take your picture for you, you can look amazing in every photo. Here are our tips on how to take the best selfie:
Highlight Your Best Feature – If you love your eyes, center them up in your photo. If you are rockin’ a good hair day, don’t crop your hair out of the photo. On the flip side, if you’re trying to hide a blemish on your chin, naturally place your non-camera-holding hand over the area you want to hide. No one will ever know you are less than perfect.
Angle Down – Taking a picture with your camera facing down is slimming and flattering for everyone. It helps elongate the neck and chin and smoothes the look of skin.
Best Face Forward – Chances are, you like one side of your face better than the other. Always show your best side in a selfie. Also, tilt your head slightly to make your pic more interesting than a standard profile.
Wear Mirrored Sunglasses – Speaking of light, mirrored lens sunglasses reflect light beautifully in selfies. They will make your entire face shimmer.
Pucker Up – Everyone looks sassy when they’re blowing a kiss. Puckering pulls your skin tight to reduce signs of aging. Most importantly, you get to show off your awesome new lipstick color.
Eye Expressions – If sunglasses and kissy faces aren’t for you, speak with your eyes. Give a wink, look surprised or otherwise intrigued for a humorous and interesting photo.
Props – Including props in your selfie, such as a hat or a cute scarf, can really enhance your photo. Or perhaps it’s the prop that you really want to show off, like your new adorable puppy or handsome boyfriend.
Backdrops – If you’re somewhere cool, let everyone know it. Stand above the scene for the best view for your voyeurs. Some of the funniest pics can be reactions to whatever is happening behind you.
Take Several Shots – Even if you’re in a hurry, snap several photos so you can pick the best one to share. Yes, selfies are supposed to be casual and spontaneous, but a girl should get photo approval too.
Filter – While you’re selecting your best frame, go ahead and edit it. Filters soften images to make you look even more awesome.
Have Fun – Selfies were not invented by serious people. Sometimes the goofiest photos are the most fun. Have a blast taking selfies…it will definitely show in your pic.
