No More Selfie Retakes!

Nailing the perfect selfie isn't easy, it's about the right combination of light, angle, setting, and photo filters. Never retake a selfie again with these easy tricks for snapping amazing selfies every time. Angle your shots- When taking selfies, keep your chin down and the camera up. You can do this by holding the phone so that the bottom of it is level with your eyes. Or better yet, use a selfie stick. Because you hold them up high, they make everyone look svelte in photos. Also, don’t stare directly into the camera. Instead, turn to the side a little bit just slightly. Lighting is everything- You want to make your skin look amazing and your hair to glisten. Take advantage of natural lighting by standing next to a window or going outside instead of facing your computer screen. Good lighting can actually make under eye circles and shadows totally disappear. Avoid shadows- There is nothing worse than having a huge shadow cast over your face. To avoid this, face directly into or away from the sun. If it's the middle of the day and the sun is high, the shadows can look like bags under your eyes. The ideal time to shoot a selfie is during the golden during sunrise or sunset, when the light is low in the sky. Know when to use flash- There are times when you want to take a selfie and it's dark.

Don't contort your face into a grin that's too big or forced. Natural smiles are always better. On the other hand, if you're going for slightly more serious selfie, try smiling with your eyes. It will just take some practice in front of the mirror until you get it right. You'll get the hang of it! Fan yourself- Want magazine-worthy shots? Use a fan to create glamorous movement in your hair by setting it up a few feet away from you to create a breeze. Use the right apps and filters- There's no shame in editing your selfie before posting it. Don't like your under-eye bags? Blur them away! Want to whiten your teeth? Go for it.
