6 Secrets Celebrities Constantly Use to Look Effortlessly Stunning in Selfies
Paparazzi waiting outside of restaurants, camera flashes at work, and even when cozied up at home — celebrities just can’t avoid hawk-eyed photographers. As the saying goes, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. After so much time in the limelight, celebrities have learned a few handy tricks that can transform their appearance in seconds. The results will impress you, and you won’t even break a sweat.
1. The tongue-behind-the-teeth technique
Believe it or not, the correct tongue placement can make a big difference. Next time you smile, press your tongue to the roof of your mouth behind your teeth. The technique is called the “tongue behind the teeth,” and it slims your face perfectly. Additionally, it helps you create a defined jawline, emphasizing your cheekbones.
2. Tilt your hips back.
This tip can help to make your thigh gap more prominent and, in general, help you appear slimmer. Lean away from the camera, tilting your hips back a little while slightly bending your limbs. You can also simultaneously stand on your toes for a stronger effect.
3. Use your rear camera.
The rear camera is generally better than the front one since it has a better dynamic range. Besides, the number of megapixels in the selfie camera is way lower than in the rear one. The latter also performs better in low light, which is especially important if you’re at a party and there’s not much light.
4. Use a simple background.
As long as a fun background isn’t your goal, it’s better to stick to a simple one. Make sure the area behind you isn’t cluttered and that there aren’t any photo bombers lurking around the corner. It’s also better to stay away from direct sunlight or direct unnatural light.
5. Show your relaxed hand.
You’ve probably noticed how often celebrities show one of their hands in selfies. It looks laid-back and adds a special charm to the pics. Gently brush your body or face with your hand, but don’t grab or force anything. Try framing your face with your hands, putting your hands on your neck, or playing with your hair.
6. Tilt your chin down.
It’s one of the best angles that flatters your facial features. Keep your camera up and slightly tilt your chin down. Also, remember to follow the camera with your eyes. This is Kim Kardashian’s favorite selfie trick, and she uses it all the time.
