Celebrity selfie tips: how to perfect your pics
Taking a good selfie isn’t as easy it looks. There are many factors to consider, and we’re not just talking filters. To celebrate Canon’s new innovative Selphy mini portable printer, we’ve put together a list of some of the best celebrity approved selfie tips. So, you can snap the perfect pic then print it off and hand it out to your fans* (your mum).
Kim Kardashian West
Arguably the queen of selfies, Kim Kardashian West even made a tabletop book filled with them. So, how does SHE get them so right? Lighting is a huge part of it.
“You want to blow out everything you don’t want to see and highlight the things you want to see,” Kim told T-Mobile once. FYI, Kimmy is a huge fan of light-up phone cases.
Gorgeous model Miranda doesn’t need much help in the looks department but even she knows the power of a good angle when taking a selfie. Kerr recommends you aim high as “it softens” your features “and is the best angle for good light.” Noted.
Kylizzle likes to take LOTS of options when shooting selfies. You can literally never have too many.
“I take, like, 500 selfies to get one I like. Sometimes I regret putting one up if I find a better one later. I'm like damn, that's a better photo, but that's the only thing I regret.”
If in doubt, throw a black ‘n’ white filter on it. Kendall, who prefers to keep things natural, doesn’t mind the odd monochrome pic every now and then.
“I like to keep it pretty natural – or black and white is always cool. But above all, you have to know your face: everybody has their good side.”
