We live in a digital era and there’s no denying it. A few extra likes on your recent Facebook post or some new Instagram followers can serve as the ultimate confidence booster. And hey, if that’s what floats your boat, we say why not! So herewith, we give you a checklist of the things you’ll need in order to build your social media empire. Read on and go reap those IG hearts.
Your Mobile Phone
Nowadays, you don’t need a DSLR to shoot high quality photographs for your Instagram. Your mobile phone can do a pretty decent job on its own. But do yourself a favor and at least install a photo-editing app, will you?
Whether you’re atop a mountain or stuck in the middle of nowhere, a pocket WiFi lets you connect 24/7 and update your followers about your adventures.
Never let a drained battery keep you from documenting and sharing those picturesque moments.

You need a strong eyebrow game to perfect that smize! Make sure those arches are ready for a close-up to get extra likes on your #nofilter selfie.
Matte Lipstick in Celebrity Status, BYS
Want to be selfie-ready anytime, anywhere? A swipe of red lipstick never fails.
Plain White Tee
Trust us, you’ll need this for your model-off-duty look.
Whether it’s for your summer #OOTD or for your beach #flatlay, a wide-brimmed hat should be able to earn you extra cool points.

A flawless beauty snap knows no angle. Highlight your bone structure and unleash the selfie queen in you.
Creme Foundation, BYS
Who needs an Instagram filter when you already have flawless-looking skin? Let this specially-formulated foundation help you conceal those blemishes and give you that immaculate finish you’ve been wishing for.
Little Black Dress
To quote Karl Lagerfeld, “One is never overdressed or underdressed in a little black dress.” Plus, you can style an LBD in many different ways, so just imagine how many #OOTDs you can wear it in. Quite an investment, don’t you think?
Hungry? Don’t forget to snap a #foodstagram first before taking a bite of that cronut. Breakfast food are tested and proven to be IG-worthy.
Nude 2 Eyeshadow Palette, BYS
From au naturel to smokey eye makeup, all you need is in one palette that can transform your look from day to night. This should look great on your #flatlays, too!
Remember to keep your tips well-manicured, especially if you’re planning to snap a #shoefie in your open-toed sandals or a touristy photo holding up an ice cream cone to the light.
Save those flowers from your secret admirer! Be it a bouquet of tulips or a long-stemmed rose, a floral touch always does the trick when it comes to styling your snaps.
Face Primer with Vitamin E and Chamomile Extract, BYS
Going for the no-makeup look? If you want to ace that selfie, don’t skip on the face primer that should instantly refine your pores and regulate shine.
You’ll need to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the scorching sun, because who knows how long it could take for you to shoot that double-tap worthy #OOTD, right?
Consider this your go-to accessory. You can always spice up your #OOTD with a cool pair of sunnies.
It’s your ticket to #TeamCozy! Enough said.
Matte Compact Powder, BYS
Oily skin can turn your selfie from “aww” to “eww.” Keep a compact powder that will definitely come in handy during those times of need.
No kidding. Someone has to take those #OOTDs! If not a beau-tographer, maybe a yayarazzi?
