We live in an Instagram era when even the timidest can not resist the temptation of self-photography. It's easy, accessible and it can also be a lot of fun (especially if you're a "stories" person). So if you can't beat them join them :) Here are 5 points to pay attention to when you're aiming to your best selfie pose.
1. The secret is in a smile
Believe us when we say, you do not want to get caught with a fake or forced smile on camera. So if you did not just eat a lemon and tried to hide it, there is no reason whatsoever to look like you did. Try turning the phone at your favorable angle, think about something pleasant or funny and press the button. Your pictures will be much more authentic and flattering.
2. Know your angles
The most frequently asked question when it comes to selfies is what is the best angle to take the photo from. Although it's kinda individual, there is actually one perfect angle which suits all ya faces and we call it "The Upper Corner". To reach that one ideal selfie, remember to keep your chin down, your phone up, your eyes should be on the same level with the camera, but try not to look straightly into it, you will end up looking weird with a creepy stare, turn slightly to the side and take a shot. Practice makes perfect, and if you really want to be precise, it's a 45 degree angle. Oh but don't thank us, thank Mrs. Kim Kardashian for this genius invention of the century!
3. Don't be a "Cliché Selfies" victim
Please, ladies, no more duck faces!
Yes, we can't deny that your face looks thinner that way but come on, the facial expression is absolutely ridiculous, don't you think?
Talking about out of style, peace signs, tongue out, air kisses and so on, are also so pass their time. The only one really important thing you need for taking a stunning selfie is to be you. You can have the most cute hairdo and the most glamorous makeup, but as long as you are "faking it" it will show. Also, chill with the filters. Over editing your photos till the point that it looks unnatural will not get you to Selfie heaven, more like to Selfie Hell.
4. Work Your Hair
"Hair is your best accessory" therefore, it has a huge effect on your photos, since it frames your face and has the ability to improve or ruin your selfie, pay some extra attention to it. You can use it in many different ways, make more natural poses or hide a part of your face, so it is highly important to keep it looking at its best. You can always use COCOCHOCO Keratin Hair Treatment, to make sure your selfies will be no less than amazing.
5. Consider your background
Do not underestimate the importance of your background even if you think it's insignificant. Toilet selfies are not only annoying but kind of gross and photo-bombers can be actually funny but the joke is on you. Choose your surroundings carefully or completely randomly, it doesn't matter, as long as it makes sense.
We wish you a productive National Selfie Day, work on your selfies and we are sure you will become the next Instagram Stars.
