These days, it’s all about taking that perfect selfie. There’s no shame in indulging in one every once in a while–everybody is doing it, after all. And what better way to look for foolproof tips than the pros themselves?
Here are some genius tricks we learned from our favorite celebrities:
1. Focus on the detail
Olivia Culpo suggests focusing on a statement detail. So whether you want your followers to notice your lip color or the location you’re in, look for something that is eye-catching.
2. Make use of your crop feature
We can always turn to Kim Kardashian for an endless supply of selfie tips. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the star shares that an easy way to get rid of unflattering body parts is to simply crop them out. “A lot has to do with how your crop it,” she shares. “If you don’t like something on your body, you just crop it.”
3. Elongate your neck
Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio shares that instead of looking at the camera straight-on, tilting your phone and neck at the same angle makes your neck look slimmer. “A little bit to the side so you can see a little bit of the chin,” she told W Magazine.
4. Look smaller by turning away at this angle
The beautiful Jamie Chung never seems to have a bad angle. She shares that for selfies show the body a little more, turning your body three-quarters away makes your waist look smaller.
5. Pose in an interesting S Shape
Here’s a great tip for selfies where you’re lying down: the S shape. Ashley Graham swears by moving your body into this position, sharing that it is a great way to highlight your curves.
