Introduction: How to Take a Good Selfie (Update)

About: Photographer | Blogger | Book Lover | Vintage Enthusiast | Instagram: @momo.davis Pinterest: @momodaviss

Hey momoluvers. It's momo and today I'll be doing an update to my precious selfie tutorial with all new advice and tips. Enjoy!

Step 1: Supplies

1. Good quality camera. A bad camera always makes you look 10x worse than you actually are. *_*

Step 2: Appropriate Enhancements

This step is mostly for girls. Use makeup to lightly enhance facial features. Don't go overboard with too much, just use 1-2 coats of mascara. Maybe some eyeshadow and blush in neutral tones

Concealer also is amazing! Use it under your eyes to make them look big and bright.

Step 3: Brighten

Almost all iPhone cameras give the option of brightening the photo. Tap the screen and you'll see a small sun appear. Slide up as much as you want to make it brighter. Don't overdo!

Step 4: Signature Look

As I've said before, experiment with different expressions to find your signature one. For example, mine would probably be tilting my head up and pursing my lips together. This was also Marylin Monroe's signature look

Step 5: Show Your Personality

Most importantly, remember to have fun and be crazy! You want to show your personality through. If your funny, be funny. If your friendly and welcoming, be friendly and welcoming.

    ok soo im not in love with all of these photos ... i kind of feel like you didn't listen to your step 3.. some of these pics are wayy too brightened all you see is the out line of your face and your hair it looks kinda ghostly, I would have to say you overdid it just a bit :( .. not trying to sound mean But I love the ones where I can see you whole face and you're showing off your personality and the lighting is great!!! great tutorial for the most part though!

    Thank you sooo much olaw101. It's hard to do what I do because you DO have to deal with haters, and I don't care about them because they just want to feel better by making fun of me.
