Over the years, I’ve learned how to take the perfect selfie every time. Selfies are here to stay, and I have no shame participating in this trend. Today, I’ll share with you my secret to that perfect Insta selfie!

How to Take the Perfect Selfie With the Best Selfie Stick
The Perfect Selfie
That way, when I’ve just finished a difficult and stunning makeup look, I can snap a selfie. When I’m with my friends on the weekends, we take selfies.
At family gatherings, celebrations, and even on my nights in, there’s going to be a selfie to commemorate the moment.
It’s a great way to show your personality, capture the moment and treasure those memories spent with people you love.
Don’t get me wrong, though. Taking the ultimate selfie is not necessarily the easiest skill to master. You don’t have to be a professional photographer with a fancy camera to get the shot.
It can even be done with just an iPhone, but you do need to remember to always find the best lighting, angles, and composition. We all know a selfie isn’t worth it unless it’s flattering.
Components of a Perfect Selfie
Lighting, angle, and composition are the three major components of a perfect selfie. The absence of one makes a big difference and may result in a shot that could end up in trash eventually.
For lighting, make sure you’re near a window or outside. You don’t want a washed-out look in your shot after you’ve finally nailed your winged eyeliner look after 100 failed attempts.
Finding the best angle might take some extra effort, but it will transform your selfies from weak to on fleek.
Composition is important for your scenic or group photos. You have to frame the selfie to include your best angle AND the other people or landmarks in the shot.
Don’t be afraid to crop afterward! It’s your selfie, so edit until it surpasses your expectations!
With the holidays approaching, you’re going to want to snap a selfie or two at all your parties and events. Whether it’s of you and your BFF or the whole family together for Christmas, a selfie is definitely happening.
The Best Selfie Stick
Now that you’ve had a few years to try out different selfie sticks, you’ve probably come across a few problems with most standard sticks:
- They’re a hassle to lug around.
- They’re often plastic that easily breaks, especially lying around in your purse.
- The stick isn’t long enough for those large group shots.
- They’re too flimsy to safely hold up your iPhone making it hard to find the best lighting and angles.
If you’re tired of letting cheap selfie sticks ruin what could be your next best Insta shot, take a look at this selfie stick case!
I’m telling you, I didn’t become the Selfie Queen with just any selfie stick. I needed a durable but lightweight, Bluetooth-equipped, travel-friendly product for all my selfies.
Luckily, what I found was even better: a selfie stick. That way, whenever I’m headed to an event or finishing up my work of art, I can quickly switch out my cases.
I’m ready for any selfie-perfect moment, and I know my phone is safe. The 10-meter pole also guarantees all your relatives will be able to get in on the family photo this year.
