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.
