Let your coolness radiate through your selfie for the world to see.

Thanks to social media, we live in day and age where we can easily document our daily lives, from Instagram to Snapchat, there isn’t a move we make that we can’t share with the world. And what better way to document and share everyday life than with a powerful selfie! Selfies are not only for documentation purpose but I have found it can also be a confident booster! Telling yourself “Hey, I look amazing today, let me take a selfie and share it.” and getting such loving and encouraging responses from peers can be really uplifting. To help you “Treat Yoselfie”, here are some tips to help you perfect your selfie taking skills. You can thank me later! 😉

1 – Check yourself out. Make sure your hair is flawless, make up is flawless, teeth check, nose check etc.

2 – Get your lightening. Find a well lit area. Natural lightening is always best, or you can help out your future selfies by getting the Lume Phone Case and you’ll never have to worry about lighting again.

3 – Background check. Not every spot calls for a selfie. Let’s aim for a clean background, no dirty bathroom or kitchen selfies please.

4 – Put your favorite lipstick on. Every selfie calls for a great pop of color.

5 – Know your good side and bad angles. Everyone has a bad side, find yours and avoid it. Get familiar with your angles for those quick on the go selfies.

6 – Strike a Pose or 10. Tilt your head, chin down camera up.

7 – Be Confident. PERIOD.

8 – Crop to perfection. Pretty self-explanatory.

9 – Glam it up with a filter. If you are using a smart phone to take your selfie, there is no need to worry if the lightening isn’t perfect. There are plenty of apps that can help adjust the lighting to your favor and provide beautiful filters to spice up your selfie. Some of my favorite apps for filters and lighting adjustments are Vsco Cam and After Light.

10 –Don’t over think it. There is no need to be serious all the time. You know who you are. Have fun with your selfie, show a little silliness, maybe even a cute pout. Let your coolness radiate through your selfie for the world to see.

    I am the WORST at taking selfies – so I generally don’t do it. I’ll give your tips a shot — we’ll see! Dubious because I’m not photogenic — at all!

    I tweeted this post out because I loved it. My coworker actually got that phone case yesterday and I’m OBSESSED. It’s so great. And the outfit goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyways… fantastic)!
