How to make perfect selfie



A self-portrait photograph or selfie is normally taken with a digital camera or camera phone held in the hand or supported by a selfie stick. Selfies are over and over again shared on social networking services for example Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.


It’s all about the angle


Rather than taking the picture frontal, test with diverse angles to know-it-all your features. If you twist your head some degrees to the right or left, your features will gaze less flat. Having the camera somewhat beyond your head so that it’s pointing down on you will make your eyes gaze larger and assist you to shun “pig nose.”

Faith in Kim K to have discovered the method for the ideal selfie. She suggests that you a) Keep your chin down and b) Hold the camera up a little more than face level. Similar to that, your features gaze much streamlined.

Get a selfie stick. No, really.


The instrument is scarcely tactful, but host/actor Anoushey Ashraf vows by the selfie stick: “A selfie stick is perfect for selfies for the reason that it assists make your face gaze slighter since the selfie is being taken from an aloofness. All and sundry has a good side, get recognizable with yours and then let the filters do their magic!”

Show off something latest.


If you decide to take a selfie to show off a new haircut or a new pair of earrings, make sure that you frame the photo in a way that highlights the new feature that has you so excited.

Be sure to smile or do something cheerful.


A sad face or a frown will not help. A selfie showing off your new hairstyle, for example, should show your hair from the most flattering angle. On a similar note, a selfie showing off a mustache should show the mustache straight-on, and the same goes for a selfie showing off a new pair of glasses.
