Per­fect selfie

The Sun (Malaysia) - - FASHION -

HERS is a gen­er­a­tion renowned for be­ing selfie-ob­sessed, and with 78.7 mil­lion fol­low­ers on Instagram, Kylie Jen­ner is the undis­puted queen of the selfie.

We’re so ob­sessed with tak­ing the per­fect selfie that the av­er­age mil­len­nial will take about 27,500 self­ies in their life­time and de­votes an hour of ev­ery week to snap­ping and up­load­ing pictures of them­selves, re­ports The In­de­pen­dent.

What’s more, in 2015 more peo­ple died tak­ing self­ies than from shark at­tacks. Yes, re­ally.

Luck­ily, how­ever, selfie queen Kylie has now re­vealed her sim­ple two-step guide to tak­ing the per­fect selfie in a video posted on her web­site. The 19-year-old re­al­ity star shares her se­crets whilst pass­ing on her wis­dom to older sis­ter, Khloe.

Step 1: Take your picture with “sun­set light­ing” Ac­cord­ing to Kylie, it is ab­so­lutely cru­cial to take your picture at the most flat­ter­ing time of day. So for her, that means go­ing out­side at around 4.45pm at the mo­ment to make the most of that warm evening sun­light.

In sunny Cal­i­for­nia where Kylie lives, how­ever, per­haps this is eas­ier than in the UK, where it’s rarely sunny.

Step 2: Know you an­gle “You gotta know your an­gle,” Kylie in­structs Khloe. “This is my an­gle, to the right.” And a quick scroll through Kylie’s instagram re­veals she does in­deed take all her self­ies with her head tilted down to the right.

Kylie fails to re­veal how she found her an­gle though, so per­haps the only an­swer is to keep snap­ping un­til you find yours – per­haps we mere mor­tals need to de­vote more than an hour a week to selfie-tak­ing af­ter all then.
