Dos and don'ts: 6 Important Selfie tips

I am not a super model, or a model of any kind. In fact, I am the opposite. Just a normal girl with an iPhone. This can get you into all sorts of trouble.

Here are a few things I have learnt:

1. I know it's tempting but the next day you will regret it. Don't let your friends take photos of you either.
 2. Check yourself, then look at the camera. Direct eye contact is better in the photo.
3. How many times have you seen this?
 4. If we are going to learn anything from Britney Spears, it's this. It looks terrible.
 5. Be selfish and think of yourself. No-one looks good hunching.
 6. I am so glad social media wasn't around when I was younger. I would have been disowned and probably would never have worked in law.
What are your tips?

  1. excellent tips! especially the ones on checking your background and looking at the camera hole! I prefer to use my back camera because the resolution is better, so like to put a mirror sticker at the back to check that we are in the right position etc.
