How to take the perfect selfie

Want to learn how to take some fire selfies? ! Use these tips and tricks to get that perfect snap!

1. Lighting is everything!
You don’t have to get all technical and set up three point lighting (though it couldn’t hurt!). This aside, having a decent amount of key light hitting your face will add an extra boost to your look.


2. Use those filters!
The dog filter is always a classic, but don’t be afraid to use the ones that make you look totally crazy! It shows that you’re not afraid to laugh at yourself and have a good time. Filters are a great way to add some fun into your selfie!


3. Make sure the back ground is cute!
Nobody wants to see the layers of clothes covering your bedroom floor! Tapestries make great backgrounds, but don’t fret if you don’t have access to one-anything clean and colorful will make a great background.


4. Get that angle!
The perfect angle is somewhere in between straight on and super high up. The most flattering way to hold the camera is slightly above your eyeline, looking down on your beautiful face! If it’s slightly elevated, your eyes will look up at the lens, making them appear larger.


5. Have fun!
The perfect selfie doesn’t mean the most flattering selfie-though it totally can if that’s what you’re going for! Sometimes the goofiest, dorkiest selfies are the best-even
if they’re sent to a crush. My personal favorite is super zoomed in with a dorky smile.
