5 Tips for Perfecting Your Selfie GameJune 30, 2017
The perfect selfie is hard to take, yet impossible to forget. Improve your Insta grid this summer with some of our best tips for taking a great selfie, everytime.
1. Get the Lighting Right
This one’s a no-brainer. Most of us have a go-to spot around the house with picture perfect lighting, but when you’re out and about in the summertime it’s a little harder to ensure.
The solution? Go outside! Take advantage of natural light, and avoid harsh lighting found in hotels and similar spots.
2. Play With Angles
If you’ve ever opened your front camera, you know what a difference angles make. Experiment with what angles work best for you.
In general, holding the camera above your head and tilting your head are two surefire ways to get a great close-up. For a better mirror selfie, experiment with poses that help to downplay your insecurities and highlight your best features.
3. Wear What You Love!
If you love what you’re wearing, chances are you’re feeling super confident. This makes a huge difference in how your selfie turns out.
Experimenting with makeup, like bold lipstick colors, false eyelashes, or new eyeshadow trends, can also help you feel (and look) your best.
4. Find Flattering Fits
Whether you’re rocking a bikini, evening dress or gym clothes, make sure they fit right when you’re taking your selfie! Not only will it help your confidence, you can eliminate any of the unflattering occurrences that come from something being too tight or too baggy.
5. Try New Filters
Do you use the same three filters for everything? Change it up! The filter that looks the best is dependent on light, makeup, setting… so many things. Always go through a few different ones instead of sticking to your default.
