As you can see, lighting is everything when it comes to making sure you look your best! The more light, the better.
3 Flash those pearly whites.
Nothing can make you look your best quite like a big smile so make sure to flash your prettiest smile for the camera. Tip: try saying the word Wednesday when you smile–this will give you a really natural, but photogenic smile.
4 Go for the open-mouth pout.

This fierce look is perfect for showing off your brand new lippie or awesome makeup skills.
5 Look to the side, girl.
For a more serious-themed selfie, it's best to look away from the camera to add a little emotion to your photos.
6 Sunglasses are saviors.
Feeling under the weather or not feeling your best? Wear your favorite sunglasses before snapping your photo!
7 Always be ready.

When sneaking a selfie (because you might be a little shy to do it in public), make sure to always have your fierce face on for the right moment when you catch the light and no one is looking.
8 Know your best angle.

And direct it towards the camera to make sure that you'll like how you look in every shot.
9 All about the eyes.
As Tyra Banks once said, "you gotta smize, girl!" And smize (smiling eyes) real good.
10 Have fun!
