Introduction: How to Take a Good Selfie

Picture of How to Take a Good Selfie

How momoluvers! It's momo and today I'll be showing you the best tips and tricks to taking a good selfie. This is a very popular trend now, and you need to do it correctly! So follow the steps and you'll be an expert selfie taker!

Step 1: Lighting

If you have bleu eyes (such as myself) this step is extremely important. Facing towards a window or just being outdoors makes your skin and eyes look so much better. It'll make you glow and look very vivid, but filter free!

Step 2: Angle

I think there are two acceptable angles: hold the camera high above your head and look up. Or you can hold it even with your face. If you choose this step, hold the camera out further than you would normally

Step 3: Face Expression

There are several different face expressions you can have that look good. Here's the wink with a half smile. This one is one of my personal favourites!

There's also the squint and smile. This one is really good if when you smile you get a wrinkle under your eye. (Like shown) you don't necessarily need natural lighting to make this look good

Keep your mouth slanted and make your eyes big. I like this one because it makes your cheeks big and cute. This gives a more youthful and playful look.

Step 4: Hair

Okay, this is a questionable step. People don't really agree with the first step I'll show you, but it is affective! Make your hair look sort of weird. Now this doesn't mean flip it all to one side and make a side bun. (Lol) but it means that you should make a small change that you usually don't have it (my bangs demonstrated in the pic)

Step 5: Feirce?

Ok, people don't really know if they should use feirce, and some people use it in EVERY SINGLE ONE! This is too much feirceness. I do agree with the idea of feirce. But I think too many pics with it can get annoying and pompous.

There are also different forms of feirce: my favorite is the first one which is feirce going upwards and on the opposite side (covering your eye)

The second it feirce on the side, but on the same eye. Say it's your right arm, it should lay on the right eye

And the last form is going upwards. So it looks as a "V"

Step 6: Finish!

Now you can take selfies knowing what your doing! To be clear, this is all my own information thought up by myself, any information on the internet is a coincidence.
