Even Hollywood actors and actresses and big political names are joining the bandwagon to share their selfies.
There are many tips on how you can take that perfect selfie and as a self proclaimed selfie queen myself, here are five tips on how to take the perfect selfie. A beautiful #SelfieExpert for that Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook profile worthy.
Strike a Pose
Prepare yourself for a good selfie. They say that to get a good selfie, you need to find the best angle. Some prepare it impromptu or having a selfie stick . Others prefer it more higher than their vision to create an impression. For me, I usually make sure to look natural without overdoing that pose . Take many pictures as possible and find one that you think you look best. Practice your poses on the mirror, so you can see the right angle that is best for you. Whether you would like to smirk, pout, duck face or that Kylie Jenner look, you have to try it all so you can see what will work on you.
Put your best happy face – Smile
I believe that people will definitely like your pictures if your smiling and looking happy because you can create positive vibes. If you appear sad or lonely in your pictures, it will make you more less attractive. Sometimes, using your eyes to have that perfect smile can make a difference. Let your lips and eyes help you with that perfect selfie. Remember that happiness is contagious, your happiness will definitely radiates in your picture that is why, i only take selfies when I’m not sad.
Natural light – Perfect Location
Natural light is still the best light. Finding that best location for a selfie is not always the rule but composition is indeed very important. Your background will make a big difference too so make sure that never ever do selfies on a cluttered area but it doesn’t mean that you need to do death defying stunt to call it perfect. Presentation is always a plus factor.
Props- Apps and right camera
Yes, don’t be afraid to use accessory. You can hold just anything as long it doesn’t overshadow your face, sunglasses, holding your fave food or you can even promote your new watch and lipsticks which is a good way for bloggers like me to share to my friends and followers brands I used and love, it’s a silent endorsement. Some would say that their selfies are #nofilters but using a good app for slight lightning, color and some retouching should not do any harm to you but instead can give your pictures more boost. Getting a good selfie camera phone like OPPO F1 Selfie Expert with good resolution and lens, face recognition . You can check their website to learn more about the amazing features. Remember that a good front camera is very important to create perfect selfies since you will always look stunning on pictures even during your close ups. ( Can you see the impurities in my face? I bet you did not, just don’t mind the eye bags since it’s my signature look)
Selfie or Groupie
Yes, it’s really nice sharing your solo selfies but it’s more fun if that moment will be shared with someone. Remember that Ellen De Generes twitter post? So, as a mom, I always love taking pictures of me and my family especially if there are no people around you to click that button or you are just having a great time of your life. I believe that there are many ways you can try to create that #perfectselfie but most of all, I am really thankful for those who created front camera since it really helps me a lot to capture great memories of myself and my children.

And even my two children loves selfies and groupies too.
and they make great groupies, which i guess sooner or later they will be #SELFIEEXPERT too.
And most of all Remember that SELFIES can be addicting so make sure to control the urge on sharing everything on your social medias.
