Want to improve your selfie game? Check out these tips that’ll help you score those insta-hearts!
1. Check yourself out in the mirror.
Does your makeup look natural or does it appear like you have ten million layers of foundation? Give yourself a quick retouch if need be.
2. Find your good side.
As you check your reflection in the mirror, see which angle projects better. The foolproof way would be to tilt your head a bit sideways and raise your camera slightly above your line of vision. This technique defines your features and slims down your face.
3. Inspect the lighting.
In photography, lighting is everything and that logic also applies to selfies. Of course, natural lighting is still the best when it comes to diffusing flaws and highlighting your features.
4. Do a background check.
Many embarrassing selfies have been posted online without checking their surroundings for random humiliating stuff – underwear, overflowing trash bin, dirty laundry, etc. Also, interesting backdrops like a painting or a beautiful scenery will earn you more double-taps for sure.
5. Embrace filters.
There is no shame in using filters because they make your pictures look better! Want to tweak the brightness and the saturation level of your pictures? Feel free to experiment until you get that perfect-looking snap.
6. Relax and loosen up.
Girl, it's just a selfie and not a magazine cover. Don't be too hard on yourself. At the end of the day, it’s all about having fun and being confident in your own skin.
