[:en]The word ‘selfie’ has been added to the dictionary. It’s the generation of selfies and selfie queens. Let’s be honest, some of us wish we could take the perfect selfies. Some of us do. Most of us don’t. We want ALL of you to be able to show off your Smile Workshop smiles so we have put together our top tips for the perfect selfie. Gone are the days of bad lighting, angles, and selfie regret! So go, take that perfect selfie friends!
1. Finding The Perfect Lighting Is Not A Lie
Every celeb tells us this over and over again, and we can confirm that this is not a lie. The optimal time for perfect selfie lighting is at sunrise or sunset as the light is low. Taking selfies directly in the sun during the day can create the illusions of bags under your eyes.
2. Please Avoid Duck Lips, Peace Signs, Or Anything Myspace Related
Duck lips may be all the rage, but we prefer to see your pearly whites thank you very much! This is the same for peace signs or anything we all used to do when Myspace was in style. Avoid it like the plague people! Use your teeth and be natural, don’t try too hard.
3. Practice Your Angles In The Mirror And Then Take 1,000 Selfies
Practice your angles in the mirror and find out which one works for you. What works for your friend may not work for you, so practice makes perfect in most cases of selfies.
4. Apps And Filters Are Your Friend
We know that #nofilter is indeed a trend but to get those picture perfect selfies, most of us need a little app lovin’. Valencia is a popular app on Instagram (for free!!!.) Again, everyone is different, so we always recommend practicing and figuring out what works for you.
5. Background Check
Make your background interesting, please. Take a selfie jumping out of a plane. Take a selfie underwater. We are looking for original imagery amongst the hundreds of selfies in cafes we see on our social feeds daily.
There you have it, our top tips for the perfect selfie. At Smile Workshop, we love seeing your pearly whites. Selfie Queen or Amateur, a beautiful smile will never go out of style. If you want to ensure you’re doing all you can for you and your family’s oral health, schedule an appointment at Smile Workshop today. We hope we’ll see you soon!
