Selfies have been and continues to be a big craze. We cannot manage a day on our Facebook news feed, our Instagram, SnapChat or our Twitter without coming at least coming across a few selfies! If you are a fan of the ever-present selfie craze you will appreciate these helpful tips to ensure you capture the perfect selfie.

  1. Soft, smooth lips are always on point. There’s nothing worse than cracked, worse-for-wear lips, than cracked lips up close and personal!
  2. Don’t include the bathroom mirror. In fact, don’t do it in the bathroom. It’s overdone and tacky. Nobody wants to see your dirty toilet in the background.
  3. If you’re going to get all experimental using apps like Perfect365, do it properly. We’re photo editing Nazis these days. We can see when it looks totally fake!
  4. Picture perfection is key, since you’re so close to the camera and every flaw is highlighted. So foundation, base, primer and concealer are your friends.
  5. Filter. Filter. Filter. They exist for a reason. Think you got a great shot? Now insert a filter. Voila! You’ve instantly made it better.
  6. Light is your friend. Step outside before you take that snap. Nothing works better than some natural lighting.
  7. Add volume to your hair. Images are flat, so photos tend to flatten the way you look. Not only will an up-do instantly transforms your face, it will make you look more appealing on camera.
  8. To avoid a double chin in your precious selfie, simply hold your phone high above your head – you’ll look slimmer from this angle. (This also helps when you wanna take a selfie with many friends!)
  9. Hold steady. You don’t want to look perfect only for the selfie to be a blurry mess because you moved. Breathe, pout and hold steady . . . and there you go! Perfect selfie.
  10. Have fun! This is all about the fun. Do serious selfies even exist? The whole point is to look good, feel good and have fun. So go ahead – strike a pose.
