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).
