Feel Good! How to Take the Perfect Selfie

We know how important it is to feel your best. Being able to take that perfect selfie and show off your true beauty is important to a girl. It can be hard to be photogenic! We wanted to share our selfie tips so you can capture your beauty in a photo because after all a picture is worth a thousand words!

                                 Bad Selfie Lighting!                          Good Selfie Lighting! 

You want your selfie to show off the twinkle in your eyes and the glow of your skin! You can’t do this without good lighting! Photo lighting is better when the sun is shining towards you, not behind you! Where is some of the best selfie lighting? Your car! Don’t selfie and drive though! You can even put your air conditioning on high to give you a fanned model hair effect. Try it! We promise you will feel like Beyoncè.


Another selfie tip is put one of your hands by your face. It gives the picture a personal touch. Try tilting your head a little and put the camera up a bit for a better angle! A higher angle will slim your face. Don’t forget, you can’t be a pro selfie taker without mastering the duck face! Totally kidding. 😉


If you’re taking a selfie in your room, find a window. Natural lighting is best!

Here’s a secret! We all have those days where we don’t feel our prettiest. If you’re not feeling camera ready, use the Snapchat rosy cheek filter with the Snapchat black and white filter over top. Camera ready with no makeup needed!

The rosy cheek filter slims your face and makes your eyes sparkle. This selfie was taken with horrible office lighting, but you can’t even tell! Pictures always look great in black and white. It hides any flaws if you aren’t feeling on your selfie game! 

Did you know? They even came out with a phone case with lights all around it to help you get the perfect selfie.

There are free phone apps that are great for enhancing your selfie! Not everyone has time to do a full face of makeup or to find great lighting.

Airbrush and Facetune are great for quick edits! Some features they have are blemish correcting, eye brightening, and teeth whitening. Don’t even bother brushing your teeth anymore! LOL 😉
