Find a Good Lighting
Face the direction where the light is. It would make your selfie look more neath and your face in it somehow fresher. A good lighting not just makes a selfie appear to look good but it also makes non-selfie photos look great as well. Although, it’s understood that some people are taking darker selfies on purpose, it wouldn’t harm to try taking evenly bright ones as well.
Find your Flattering Angle
One person might have the same flattering angle as the other, but that’s not always the case, so keep on experimenting and taking selfies with different angles, especially if you still haven’t found the right angle for you. Go trial and error in this one even if it takes you bunch of selfies to finally figure out what works for you.
Learn a Pose or Two
Pulling off a peace sign and pouty lips aren’t your only choice. Let your poses vary. Use your hand, adjust your shoulders, tilt your head, elevate your chin, play with your hair, look to different directions, and of course don’t forget to smile. Every person may strike different poses depending on their personality, so if you think that a pose may seem awkward to you, then don’t be afraid to try something else that would fit your style.
Use the Beautification Feature of your Phone
If the lighting, good background, flattering angle, and a great post still doesn’t content you. It’s not bad to use some of the beautification features of your phone. Zenfone 4 Selfie Lite by ASUS is one of the phones which has great beautification feature such as Soften Skin, Brighten Skin, Enhance Eyes,Thin Cheeks, and more.
