How to Take A Perfect Selfie

But first, lemme take a selfie.

After all, I am a narcissistic millennial, obsessed with social media by documenting every aspect of my life. The current state of my face included. As such, I have taken many selfies in my life, from an old 3rd Generation iPod to my current iPhone 6Plus, encased by Lumee. In my honest opinion, I think I've learned a few things. 

Here are some tips on how to take the perfect selfie!

FIND YOUR ANGLES


Most of us are not born with symmetrical faces but we can fake it. By changing your posture through minute movements, it can help make your jawline sharper and face slimmer.

I know many people have a prefered side, a running joke among bloggers is the side we stand. if you look at my Instagram, you'll notice I usually tilt my jaw to the right or show the left side of my face. It's my go-to angle. If you look closely at other Instagrammers, you'll find similarities between their poses.

Like the last tip, it's all about angles. Keeping your phone up high and pointing the camera downwards, elongates your face and gives the illusion of bigger eyes. I do this with all my selfies like this or this.

Make sure your phone is far from your face as possible. Bringing it too close enlarges the centre of your face due to the camera's lens, making your nose look wider than it actually is.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NATURAL LIGHT


My favourite time to take photos is in the early morning when the sun has risen but no one else, or mid-afternoon when the light is bright. Lighting is important when taking photos so you won't have any grainy quality and easier to edit (if you want to)

If I am taking a photo in a dimly lit area or at night, I use Lumee. This one is their LuMee Duo Marble Case. The case features two warm LED lights, which give off a nice cast on the skin and fill any shadows. Did I mention they are also rechargeable and dimmable?

USE PROPS


To make a selfie more fun and interesting, use props!

Easy as grabbing a milkshake or a boyfriend, but I find milkshakes much more affordable and taste better. It incorporates some fun into a selfie. Play with poses, find new ways to use products into shots, and overall, have some fun!

TAKE MULTIPLE SHOTS

Take. All. The. Shots.

Take three hundred shots to get the perfect one. Where the sun hits your skin just right, and your jawline cuts and your milkshake isn't half empty. Selfies aren't a science nor an art, they are a fun way to capture your look then and now. Taking multiple shots helps your mini-photoshoot come to life.
