My 4 Simple Tips to Perfect Selfie Picture!

Last September, Malaysians broke the Guinness World Records’ world record for most number of selfies in an hour. Malaysia boleh!!! Actually I also contributed a fair amount of selfies! 

And recently a friend asked how to take a perfect selfie picture? I have list down my 4 simple tips to share with you how to take perfect selfie picture! 

1) Natural lighting 
One of the key thing in photography is lighting  and for selfie it's also the same. Natural light is the most flattering kind because the light will brighten and soften our features, rather than casting harsh shadows across your face. Make sure the sun or other light source in front of you, a bit above eye level, for the most flattering shot. And if you ever try use camera flash to do selfie , you will probably see forehead glare, sometimes the harsh lighting will distort your appearance and possibly give your selfie the red eye effect.

I always prefer to take selfie near a window or outdoors because the light softer and more flattering. It like how it will give the impression of smoother & softer facial lines, and smile appears to be more attractive I think!

2) Get your angles right

For a perfect looking selfie, it's important to get our angles right. You can experiment in front of the mirror to determine which angles are most pleasing for your face.

I think when one look straight into the camera usually the face looks round and fat .. (unless you have really think face lol). And I think it's nice to make the face tilt at a slight angle to the camera to create the illusion of slimmer face.

3) Clean & Clear Skin

Want to have a perfect looking selfie? Have a healthy skin! I cannot deny the magic makeup can do to help to boost up my confidence but honestly it still could not conceal 100% of our skin condition (eg pimples, big pores etc). I know now girls are into filter apps, got to admit how it makes the skin looks perfect within a touch but in actual fact, we know it's not real . So why not start to let people to see the real you? Beauty starts with healthy skin.

I admit I started taking care of my skin pretty late, I wish I would have started way earlier. At minimum, I think one needs to practice 3 simple step of skincare step i.e clean, tone and moisture to to clean & protect our skin from our polluted environment.

And if you use makeup, please, please make sure you remove your makeup properly everyday before you go to sleep! And yes makeup residue left on face will cause pimples, skin irritation etc.

I remembered very clearly Clean & Clear by Johnson & Johnson is the first skincare brand that my mum bought for me to use when I was a teenager. I remembered how it is really simple, efficient and affordable to use to keep my skin clean & clear from pimples etc.

And here are the 3 skincare steps everyone should practice ; 


Step 1 : Clean & Clear Essentials Foaming Facial Cleanser cleans my skin gently removing, dirt, oil, and very light make-up to help skin stay clean and healthy. The rich lather is oil-free and gently removes dirt and oil without over-drying and leaves skin clean and refreshed. My favourite product among all!
Step 2 : Clean & Clear Essentials Oil-Control Toner works deep down to the pores to help prevent common skin problems leaving my skin feel clean & refresh. Although this is an oil-control toner, it does not make my skin feel drying at all. 

Step 3 : Clean & Clear Essentials Oil-Free Moisturizer nourishes our skin whilst helping prevent pimples and blackheads. Love the light texture and absorb quickly into the skin! 

And finally don't forget to apply sunblock everyday to protect our skin from harmful sun rays and to prevent premature skin aging! Dark spots, pigmentation etc..once they appear, it's difficult to remove them. Trust me, preventative is better than cure! Healthy diet and lifestyle are important as well because that contribute to your whole well-being !

4) Just Smile
Someone told me before, your smile is your best asset. It is free and the perfect accessory for the perfect looking selfie!

p/s : Do make appointment with your dentist every 6 months to clean & polish your teeth to have a great smile. You know it's not awesome when your mouth has odor or looks yellowish.

So this are my 4 simple tips to have perfect looking selfie!
