Let me take a Selfie…”The good, the bad and the ugly”

Everyone is guilty of it, everyone has done it, and there is nothing to be embarrassed about, its human nature……..its…..”The SELFIE!!”

It’s the latest THING to do, your at the beach, at a party, with your mates, or even in hospital giving birth, there is always the right time for a “selfie”, am I right??

There are so many selfie pictures on social media and magazines of beautiful people in their natural habitat looking amazing. It shits me really.

These stunners are always at the ready for a quick pic, and 10 times out of 10 they look bloody fabulous! I always like to ask myself how many pictures did it actually take do get looking that good? 2? 20? expert level 1?

Surely I’m not the only one who wakes up, puts on killer makeup looks in 3 different mirrors and thinks:

“Shit….I look the goods today!” or ” Geez, I’m all that and a bag of potato crisps” (brittish accent required). “I think I might just take a selfie!” so you go yet your trusty phone, click the camera icon, only to reveal an extremely unflattering upper shot of your nostril, position the phone always slightly raised so no one can see your double chin, pull a few faces and try some different angles, and the CLICK. All to reveal this…….

So verrrry attractive!!

But believe me when I tell you, a good pose at  just ..  the ..  right ..   angle can be the difference between a good pic and a OMG do I really look like that, I’m going to go rock in the corner quietly pic.

There is a great article I found by Fashion Gone Rogue, about how to take a great selfie! you can findit here :

Not all of us are blessed with the photogenic gene, and thats’s ok! Because at the end of the day, there is always filters to help those of us that have not been shined upon by the photo gods.

It only takes 5 minutes, a really good editing app, 50% black and white saturation with a slightly blue hue and a 60% increase in the blur filter to get things looking decent!! May the photo gods be forever in your favour!
