How to take a killer selfie 📷

Like everything in life, there’s are tips and tricks to improve everything, and here are some to take that killer selfie…

Sometimes I get asked what camera I use to take my photos and it’s just my IPhone 5C, the proper camera, not the front facing one.

These are photos taken seconds apart, one good, one bad!(incase you don’t know, left is bad, right is good!)   
Now, I’d say this is a good selfie, and the main reason is because I’m standing right infront of a window, lighting is key. Natural lighting is even better! So if it’s day time, just by standing by a window ups your game immediately!   

Here I am, exactly the same make up, hair, clothes… Except this photo is awful. And that’s because I’m not by a window! It’s on my left hand side as you can see in the photo. Light helps to make you look flawless, it’s flashes out your imperfections!

This photo is also taken too low, I mean we’ve all seen someone taking a photo showing all their chins. If that is the look you’re going for carry on…

Holding the camera just above your eyeline is the most flattering angle, tilt your chin forward slightly, and think of something happy, this actually works, think Tyra Banks Smize!

What other tricks do you have up your sleeve?!
