March can only mean one thing: we are a month closer to Summer. It’s almost time to start dusting off our sunglasses and getting our tan on.
In this digital age we have to take photos of absolutely everything — if it’s not on Instagram, did it even happen?
Posing with Sunnies is great for looking cool, covered up, and forever on holiday.
Whether you are Snapchatting your crush, showing off on Instagram or are trying to nail that selfie for a new Facebook profile pic, we’ve got you covered.
Here’s a breakdown of the top ways to get your selfie game on point. Just add sunglasses and a few little tips and tricks.
Posing & Angles
Sometimes, sunglasses show your reflection in frame. Awkward: people can see you taking a selfie of yourself, which can ruin the picture.
Finding the correct pose is important. As shown by Kylie Jenner and Queen on Instagram, Selena Gomez, a pose that works is resting your glasses on the tip of your nose.
If you’re lucky enough to have your own personal photographer or patient friend with a creative eye, get them to take a photo of you whilst looking away from the camera.
Mysterious, artistic and a touch or dramatic flair, this type of photo will rack up lots of likes.
If it works for Shay Mitchell and Scott Disick, then it works for us!
Take advantage of built in filters on your favourite apps because they can help hide your reflection in your selfie.
Play around with contrast and the lighting. A black and white picture can really make a difference. See Zayn’s fabulous selfie for inspiration.
Or, why not use the cheeky filters on Snapchat to take some of the attention away from your sunglasses and reflection in them. Look cool and fun-loving at the same time.
See Supermodel Kendall Jenner rocking it for reference below.
Or pull an Ariana Grande, and combine our two pieces of advice together — black and white with a Snapchat filter.
If you want the perfect photo showing off your sunglasses, then how about putting them on your head?
See Zoella (although her boyfriend, Alfie, didn’t get quite get the memo) show us how it’s done.
As you can see, there are many, many ways that you can take a selfie in style without having your reflection, or those pesky selfie arms, in it too. Whatever style you try, have fun taking your photos! If you have any suggestions or advice on how to take a great selfie, then leave a comment down below, we’d love to hear it!
