We’ve all seen them on our Facebook and Instagram feeds: the infamous selfies. But the selfie is not just reserved for social media; it’s a great way to show off your best assets, give your partner a private peak and get pulses racing. Pouting lips, legs that go on forever, sultry eyes… Flaunting what you’ve got can all seem a bit daunting if you don’t know how to do it right. We’ve got all the best tips to make sure you look your best:
First of all, it’s all about the angles. Play around with different ones to find your best side rather than taking the picture head-on. Hold the camera slightly higher than your face to make your eyes look bigger and get a sneak peak of cleavage in the photo, letting some sexy lace peak out. And don’t forget that coy, flirty smile you know will make him melt.
If you want to show off your sexy new lingerie, especially reserved for him, you might want to opt for a full-length shot to make sure you get all the goods in the same photo. Cock your hip on the same side where you’re holding the camera and jut the other shoulder forward for a slender look. Place your free hand on your hip and cross your legs at the ankle. Add some killer heels to elongate your legs, and – voilá!
Just got out of bed? Contrary to what you might think, this is a great photo op to show your natural side. Besides, a tousled bed head is always a sure-fire way to send his thoughts to a naughtier place. Just add some light makeup for a natural but still flawless look. Let your locks fall on to the pillow and snap the shot from a slightly higher angle, or to frame your cleavage in the best way, prop yourself up with your elbows on the bed.
As supermodel Tyra Banks is always telling her models on America’s Next Top Model: find the light! Dimly lit rooms and fluorescent lighting is your worst enemy. Natural light is the most flattering, so try to take your selfie near a window. To soften your features, make sure the light source is in front of you rather than off the side or behind you which can make your features appear shadowy. Don’t use the flash unless you have to, to avoid a forehead glare and the redeye effect.
You might be tempted to use your phone’s front camera so you can see your face when you take the picture, but try taking a few snaps with the back camera as well. Your selfie will be higher resolution and less blurry. To top it all off, experiment with some filter effects to add that last bit of glow to your photo. Vintage, artsy black-and-white, contrast – play around with different styles to find the best one for you.
Now you’re a pro so put your best outfit and heels on and go forth and snap a selfie! See some seriously sexy sefiesl on our Pinterest Board >>
