Selfies has become rage of this era there are certain tips to take perfect selfies. C’mon, we all have to admit that we love to take a good selfie and love the likes and comments to follow when we have shared them with the whole of social media! However, these stunning snaps are hardly ever as effortless as we love for them to appear, in fact, they have probably taken hours or editing and some strange contorted positions in the process! Beware there are certain tips and tricks to snap perfect selfies and enjoy the new year 2020 ahead.
It’s all about getting that perfect lighting that will make you look FLAWLESS! Too bright and you will lose your main features (potentially good if you hate your nose) but too dark and you risk looking like Darth Vader and will struggle to see any feature. Trick is getting it the right lightness to look dewy and glowing.
Whether you point your camera up high basically above your head in order to get your freshly styled hair and cute outfit in or need it horizontal to your face to get a strong, bold selfie; we all have our angles. In fact, angles are so important it could be the difference between looking like Shrek or a Kardashian – take note!
Perfect Amount Of Pout
This is always a struggle, you don’t want too much and to look like you are pulling an extreme duck face or the Kylie Jenner challenge gone wrong, but you also want enough to say hi look at my pouty lips.
Checking For Awkward Surroundings
Yes we are talking about those piles of Dominos boxes in the background or your nan peeking in on you and reflecting in the mirror. It is important to do those all important checks as you do not want the perfection of your selfie being overseen by the embarrassment of yesterday’s underwear on the floor!
Choosing From 250 Shots – Kim Kardashian reveals some basic tips for selfies.
There is no one that can take the perfect selfie within one shot, this just cannot be possible! Unless you are a Greek God, most of us take a fair amount of time taking many shots and then take some more time trying to choose which one is the winner!
