Ditch The Duckface: How To Actually Look Sexy In Your Selfies
Being photogenic takes some practice.
While Kim Kardashian may always be the reigning Queen of Selfies, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for less-than-photogenic photos. If you want to appear more photogenic like Kim K., follow these simple tips:
DITCH THE DUCKFACE
A. It’s not attractive, and B. it’s so 2016.
USE NATURAL LIGHT
Fluorescent lights can make anyone look less-than-perfect, dark photos will turn out grainy, and using your camera’s flash could make you washed out or red-eyed. Soft, natural lighting is the best way to show off your pretty face.
ELONGATE YOUR NECK
Push your face forward by sticking out your forehead and tipping your chin slightly down. This will help you avoid the dreaded double chin and make you look camera-ready.
CURL YOUR LASHES
A bit of mascara and lash curl will really open up your eyes — the focal point of any selfie.
Prevent a shiny T-zone by keeping some blot film on you at all times.
KNOW YOUR ANGLES
Unless your face is inhumanly symmetrical, chances are you have a good side. Take a look at some old photos of yourself and try to spot which angles, smiles, and poses work best for you. Then replicate these in all your future selfies.
