When it comes to taking a flawless selfie, lighting is EVERYTHING. It can make or break your photo. A well-known trick among models is: find the light.

This isn’t always possible, so to prevent this issue, I definitely recommend using Ty-Lite! Ty-Lite is a phone case by Ty Hunter and will change your life. This protective phone case comes with three different light settings so even if it’s a cloudy day or the lighting indoor is poor, you can still look good!

Work baby, work. Angles are everything in a photo. Knowing your angles is extremely important to getting the best selfie. To better learn your angles, you have to know your face, which means spending some time practicing looks in the mirror! You don’t always have to make dramatic movements, a slight tilt of the head can change an entire look of a picture.

Angles also include the way you position and hold the camera. A selfie photographed straight on looks different than the one taken from above. Angling the camera slightly above your head as if it’s looking down on you, is a flattering angle on everyone.


The most important tip. If you are not feeling good about yourself, it will show. You are fabulous and beautiful and a selfie is a perfect way to show that off! Give the camera a big smile or a sexy smize and watch all the likes appear! Confidence truly is your best accessory.
