How to selfie like a super
With over 7 million Instagram followers, who better than supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio to break it down for us?
Know your light
“Look for the best light and you won’t need a filter. Natural light is good, but on a grey day, it can cast shadows. I like a beauty light – that one you get around the mirrors in a studio.”
Play with your angles
“Everyone’s face is different, so practise to find your best angle. Don’t take photos from below – lift your arm slightly above your head.”
Up the shine
“Shiny hair that reflects the light is key. An in-salon treatment will make it shimmer.”
Boost your volume
“I use  L’oréal Professionnel Volumetry Anti-gravity E ect Volume Spray ( R320). It’s so light, but works well.”
Get the right hair colour
“I’ve changed mine a few times, but I never went too far away from my natural tone. At the Balmain show, I wore a blonde wig. It looked great, but for real life, I need a warmer blonde.”
My makeup rules
“I don’t do full- on makeup and only wear concealer if I’m not working. I use eyeliner at the corners for a flick and a creamy blush and bronzer, and have natural shiny lips.” We like:  L’oréal Paris Super Liner Black ‘n’ Sculpt ( R159.95),  Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Waterproof Concealer ( R350) and  The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Deep Berry ( R150).
