What does it take to take a selfie like a model?
If this is the question in the back of your mind every time you click on a new New York Fashion Week Instagram story, you’re not alone. Truth be told, taking a selfie like a model has much less to do with how naturally symmetrical your face is, and a whole lot more to do with the correct lighting and angles. We asked models at NYFW to give us their best backstage selfie – and here’s what we got!
Our step-by-step guide to take a selfie like a model:
1. Find the best lighting – natural light is KEY!
2. When taking your selfie, use the side button on your iPhone instead of the touch-screen click. This will allow you to have a better grip on your phone.
3. Angle the camera up toward your face – this will slender out your face and neck without looking unnatural.
4. Click away! Take a dozen (or more!) selfies and choose your favorite.
