Selfie Guide

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Beauty -

Con­trary to what it looks like, tak­ing self­ies isn’t easy. Any­one who says oth­er­wise ei­ther has ex­tra long limbs (selfie genes), or is Kim Kar­dashian. There are so many things to con­sider— Is the light­ing soft enough? Are the shad­ows too strong? Will peo­ple be able to tell that this is ac­tu­ally a bath­room stall? Then there’s choos­ing which selfie to post (out of the 30 you just took), then won­der­ing how you’re go­ing to edit it. The last thing you want to be think­ing about is if you’ll look snatched (it’s the new on fleek!) that day. Thank­fully, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to make things a lit­tle less stress­ful. Self­ies should be fun, af­ter all. We’re go­ing to get you selfie-ready. And we mean, girl-scout ready. It’s a lot about be­ing pre­pared, so get pack­ing (p.3). It’s also about not for­get­ting the small de­tails, and mak­ing sure you’ll never get caught hold­ing a cam­era up only to re­al­ize your pol­ish has chipped (p.10). Plus, we’re go­ing to help you switch things up ev­ery now and then, be­cause no one likes a feed filled to the brim with self­ies that all look the same. Show the world you can go from #hy­pe­bae to

an­nyeong­haseyo real quick (p.4). Now, go and get snap­ping. Post it on­line, or just keep it to your­self. Make it art, or know that you don’t have to. It’s no big deal. Just make sure you’re hav­ing fun! But first… let me take a selfie.
