How to Curate Your Feed, As Seen On Angelique Manto's Instagram
1. Devil's in the Details
Sometimes, the best pictures are the ones that don't show your face. Instead, make a part of your outfit the center of attention. In Angelique's case, she usually employs this technique to show off her pretty necklaces.
2. Golden Girl
Golden hour photos usually follow a specific look: Pictures taken with natural lighting resulting in a soft glow and probably a lot of blush and highlighter for that sunkissed effect. For Angelique, she does things a little differently. She plays around with the exposure, highlights, brightness, and shadows of her photos to create a moodier, duskier effect for her photos.
3. Life Lately
Carousel dumps on Instagram have been very popular lately and for good reason, too—it's a good way to upload a series of photos that might not "fit" with your feed's usual aesthetic. For the first pictures of Angelique's life updates, she usually chooses a pic that still goes with her moody theme.
4. (Spring) Breakers
Filler pictures serve an important purpose for your feed. They are breakers that can help prevent your grid from being too saturated with selfies or OOTD photos. So make sure to keep an eye out for interesting things around you like signages, artsy buildings, and the like!
5. Lover Girl
Of course, it's impossible to mention Angelique's name without including her long-time beau and fellow content creator David Guison in the conversation. The power couple has always wowed us with their sartorial choices and cute poses, and Angelique has always made sure to pepper in a few couple photos in her grid!
6. Fit Checks
Angelique is well-known for her edgy yet classy style, and she makes sure to show that off every chance she gets with OOTD pictures. She also ensures that she keeps things interesting by playing around with different poses or using props.
7. Beach Baby
The content creator loves the water, and her bikini pics are proof of this! She doesn't just take pics while she's in the water, though. She also makes sure to snap some photos while she's getting some sun or even while she's lounging away inside.
