How To Take Selfies Like a Bollywood Diva!

Devanshi Kapadia , 03 Aug 2014

We all know, unless you’ve been living under a rock, that “selfie” was 2013’s word of the year, which turned into plenty of different variations of the selfie. Like the ‘belfie’ (I’m sure you remember that that from this year’s IIFA!), basically a selfie of your butt. Then there’s also the ‘welfie’ which is a selfie you take while working out and the list is pretty much never-ending. But if you’re still trying to perfect and upload a good old #selfie, then here’s a little help from our favorite Bollywood #SelfieQueens!

 1. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LIGHTING.

Singer & Actress, Priyanka Chopra, shows us how it’s all about good lighting. Move around a little till you find a position where the light hits your face exactly where you want it to, whether that’s indoor or natural light. Oh, and it never hurts to show off a great pair of sunnies.

2. THE ‘JAW TILT’

Always tilt your jaw slightly upwards and away from your neck. You don’t want to end up looking like you have a double chin. This will give you a more angled jawline, just like Bipasha’s. The jaw tilt flaunts the diva’s bombshell features!

 3. NEVER GO FILTER HAPPY.

This one’s a serious request to all those people out there who have extremely blurred selfies. Guys, we can barely make out who’s in the picture. Filters can be our best friends, but only if they’re done right. So make like Alia Bhatt and show off who you are, au naturel.

 4. #SMIZE BABY!

As Tyra Banks would say on almost every episode of America’s Next Top Model, “smize,” or smile with your eyes! When it comes to looking picture perfect, a supermodel knows what she’s talking about. So, whether you’re pouting or grinning, don’t forget to smile with your eyes. See, Sonakshi Sinha knows a thing or two about smizing!
