3 SELFIE MISTAKES YOU'RE PROBABLY MAKING WITHOUT REALIZING
Put it like this sis, before purchasing the newest smartphone, we have to question how good the front camera is because there is absolutely no compromise when it comes to taking selfies!
Selfies are now tied to our daily lives and have become a huge part of our culture—but what's funny is that it didn't happen overnight. Instead, it gradually hit us, and became a revolution.. in way.
Although there are obvious ways to tell a lousy selfie from a good one, there are certain things that you must avoid at all costs if you want to store a memory in the selfie that you plan on taking on a special night out or a day event.
After years of receiving ambassador photos, we have compiled our top 3 issues when it comes to taking quality selfies. Here are our top 3 selfie mistakes that you may be making, and here's how you can avoid them!
1. Bad Lighting | Too Dark
Although it's not common knowledge, lighting can affect the way you look on camera. Good and bad lighting determines how good you look in photos, which is why some of the most gorgeous people you may know might look a little bland in selfies, and it's probably because they are doing it all wrong.
Do not let this happen to you. When it comes to taking selfies, good light is key. Ensure the light source is directly in front of you, illuminating your face and not coming from behind you.
A Great Ring Light, Tripod (and mirror of course) are essential! Check some of our Affordable Favs here.
Almost all Photos (especially selfies) are incomplete without a quick little add-on of subtle filters and adjustments. But to know how to edit your selfies effectively is key.
A good selfie is supposed to accentuate your face, neck, and hair. Be sure to add a soft filter or preset that uplifts the brightness and accentuates your page.
Important Note: A selfie needs careful attention, not just a bunch filters! In addition, what you can do is start by adjusting your photo by sharpening it so that it doesn't look blurry or bad quality, and then add a filter of your choice and reduce it to give your selfie a subtle shade of whatever filter you love.

If you are a keen observer (or even if you aren't) you might have noticed that pictures with a clear background stand out more and look better than those where the background is messy and out of place.
Here's what you need to do: Remember that you need a bright, neat, and if possible- solid background, with subtle hints of life around you so that your selfie is focused more on your face than on the background.
This will up your selfie game, and you'll notice how different this looks from the regular selfies you've taken in the past.
And sis, Don't be afraid to crop!!!!! Even if you think the picture is ok, try cropping it to emphasize your face more and see how it looks!
Tips not to miss:
* If Indoors- Be sure to look for clean, clear places to stand for your photos. If you decide to go for bathroom or mirror pics- Be sure the mirror is clean and the counters, floors and background are neat.
*If Outdoors- Be sure the background is not shaded or shadow'y. Then hold your phone up to an angle and do a "360 circle check" -Checking that the sun is lighting your face from the correct angle
