7+ Sneaky Tricks Celebs Use To Take Perfect Pics Of Themselves

When it comes to taking the perfect selfie or Instagram photo, celebrities usually have a lot more advantages to help them. Whether that's surgery or a good editing team, celebs have the resources that most don't.

Still, there are a few secret tricks that Hollywood's finest use to take the perfect picture without the use of Photoshop or needles.

Read on to see how you can steal a trick or two and take your Insta-game to the next level.

Shooting pictures from above

You'll notice that most celebs avoid taking selfies below eye level because that angle can be unflattering.

Instead, you should aim to hold your camera at or above eye level for an angle that will make your face look slim and sleek.

Practicing smizing

You may have learned this trick from Tyra Banks on America's Next Top Model.

Smizing is what happens when you focus on closing your mouth and letting your eyes do all the smiling for you.


Karlie Kloss knows how to pull off this flirty and feminine look.

All you have to do is narrow your eyes a bit and put on a barely-there smile to raise your cheekbones and help you look younger.

Poke it out

The Kardashians may be known for their, ahem, assets but that doesn't mean they don't also work their angles.

One of Kim's favourite poses is to pop out her left hip while slightly bending her right knee and pointing her right foot.

The slightly awkward stance gives the illusion of a much curvier body than you actually have.

Always get your good side.

Everyone has a good side that appears more flattering in photos.

For most people, that side is their left side but feel free to experiment and figure out what works best for you.

Wearing their hair off to the side.

Queen Ri can pull off virtually any look but there's something particularly appealing about wearing a side part.

By tossing your hair off to one side, you can define your jawline a lot better and create a little bit of mystery by slightly hiding one eye.

Take your selfies during the golden hours.

Between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., the sun hits just about eye level and is at its warmest hue.

This time of day has been dubbed the "golden hours" and is the perfect time to take a selfie that makes you look more flawless and sun-kissed.

Incorporate your hands somehow

It might feel silly at first, but gently resting your hand on your face, or holding an imaginary cigarette while you pose will weirdly make your pics look better.
