But how do you get a winning selfie? One that will garner heaps of likes from your peers and associates and will impress every time? Here’s five top tips that will ensure your selfie is the best yet. Here's how to take a good selfie on your iPhone.
1. Get the lighting right
According to style blogger Candice Lake, how to take the perfect selfie you need to get the lighting right. "There is nothing worse than having a huge shadow cast over your face," she says.
Her selfie tips include mastering selfie light. “When in doubt, 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 golden hour to shoot a photo is during sunrise or sunset, when the light is low and the most beautiful."
2. Take heaps of selfies
Queen of selfies Kylie Jenner says you need to take LOTS of pictures when knowing how to pose for selfies. She's said that she takes "like, 500 selfies" before she actually posts, which is a lot of selfie poses. "Sometimes I regret putting one up if I find a better one later. I'm like damn, that's a better photo, but that's the only thing I regret," she adds.
They key thing to an attractive selfie is a good smile that’s natural and engaging. "Flash a real smile and no image will look bad," says Candice. Do as Tyra Banks does and "try smiling with your eyes."
4. Work your angles
One thing master of sexy selfies Kim Kardashian knows how to do is work her angles. She often advises to keep your chin down and the camera up. One of the best ways to achieve this is with a selfie stick.
You should also avoid staring directly into the camera. "Most people don't look their best straight-on. Turn to the side a little bit — not to the point where it's a full-on profile, but just slightly," advises makeup artist Nick Barose.
5. Know your apps and filters
One key thing when taking your winning selfie is to ensure you are using the right apps and filters. the best photo editing apps for selfies includes Facetune and AirBrush for blurring or softening eye bags. When using filters try Instagram’s Valeria.
"I have a soft spot for the Valencia [Instagram] filter. It's the dreamiest of all filters and it makes everyone look gorgeous," says Candice.
Victoria Beckham is always good at adding the right filter to her selfies to ensure her skin looks flawless.
