    How To Take Better Selfies, According To Two Selfie Addicts

    Take your selfies from nottie to hottie!

    by ,

    Let's face it, taking a selfie is a delicate art form. Whether it's finding proper lighting, the perfect angle, or deciding whether or not to use the self-facing camera, selfies require EFFORT.


    But we're here to help you step your selfie game THE FUCK UP!!! Your selfie game is guaranteed to go from 0 to 60 in no time flat.

    Here are the Rules of Taking a Selfie:

    1. Know — and work — your angles.

    2. Feel your look!

    3. Own your environment.

    4. Learn from your selfie idols.

    5. Light it up!

    6. Set the mood.

    7. When you know you're looking hot, bank a few for later!


    The worst thing you could ever do to your selfie game is taking only ONE. This isn't your high school yearbook photo — this is YOUR phone, YOUR time, YOUR selfie. BE SELFIE SELFISH. After all, you've probably got an iPhone, and not some disposable camera. Use those megabytes and bank your fair share of selfies! You never know when you're going to need a cute #TBT, after all.

    8. Group selfies are great...


    It's important to not just take selfies of yourself. Obviously, you're the most important person in the world (after us, of course) BUT it's important to throw some up with your friends to remind everyone that you're not a total loser. However, don't just take selfies with any old randos. If you're wondering if it's a good opportunity to take a selfie, ask yourself the following questions:

    — Am I the cutest person in the picture?

    — Are the other people in the picture cute, but not as cute as me?

    — Are the other people in the picture NOT riffraff?

    — Will being seen in this group shot bolster my social status?

    If you answered "Yes!" to all of the above questions, go ahead...take that group selfie!

    9. ...but solo selfies are too!

    10. Have a purpose behind your selfie.

    11. Mix it up!

    12. And most important of all, look cute, duh!!!
