It's rarely our hair and makeup that won't cooperate in selfies. Most of the time, what we can't agree with ourselves with is our pose—specifically, where to position our hands without leaving them to dangle awkwardly like a lost limb. Turns out, it's not as difficult as we think it is, because here are some go-to hand angles even a non-model can do:
1. Jess Wilson
Two pros come with this pose: It smooths out any wrinkles and makes you look super chill. Plus, score some extra "I woke up like this" points if you use it lying down!
2. Nadine Lustre
Hit multiple birds with one selfie and show off your new mani with his hand-to-cheek pose. Rest your thumb on your chin to make yourself look more relaxed.
3. Catriona Gray
Lay your fingertips on your décolletage and you'll end up with a pose that's worth being in a jewelry ad.
4. Andrea Brillantes
When you're too tired to think of an angle, go with something you know—some chin on palm action that looks equal parts bored and selfie-ready.
5. Martine Cajucom
A closed fist appears too rigid in photos, so try to open your hands slightly and position it to complement the facial feature you're highlighting.
6. Ylona Garcia
If you're lucky and have someone else to take your photo, make it look a little candid by moving a little. For one, you can ask your friend to take continuous shots as you fix your hair.
7. Gabbi Garcia
Taking pics at the beach will leave you torn between taking a proper selfie and being blinded by the sun, but a solution is literally at the palm of your hand. Shield your peepers with one hand and flash a subtle smile!
