Taking selfies might seem like a fairly easy task to do. But some of us are not as confident showing our faces in front of the camera as the rest, even for something as simple as a selfie. And it’s okay if you don’t exactly want to expose your ~lewk~ on cam. Walang basagan ng trip! Whether you’re shy or are just looking for a new way to creatively take selfies, here are some #CandyRookie pegs to try that will strategically hide your face (or parts of it).

Mirror selfie

Mirror selfies are pretty big right now, especially for at-home shoots na sariling sikap. Your phone will also conveniently cover parts of your face for a ~creative~ effect.

Super zoom

An effective way of cropping out parts of your face is to take your shots up close. Nasa angle lang 'yan minsan!

Playing with shadows

Sunlight is practically a no-brainer source of light for any good selfie. Step it up by looking for a spot around the house that will creatively cast shadows on your face.

Covering your face with your hand

Nothing beats the classic takip-mukha using your hands--just make sure they're clean and sanitized before you strike a pose!

Side profile

Looking to the sides to hide one part of your face is also a classic pose. All you really need to do is to look away from the camera and flex that jawline.

Put on a hat

Add some accessories to your look for extra props. Grab your trusty bucket hats before snapping a selfie and play around with different angles.

Crop your face out entirely 

If the goal of your selfie is to highlight certain parts of your 'fit like your cool new piercings or your newly made manicure, leaving out your face from the frame can add to the aesthetic of the photo.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
