    Also, have a team of people flashing their phone flashlight on your face. This is essential to taking the perfect selfie- (as Kim Kardashian says)

    Well I'm not a girl but I like to think I'm decent at taking selfies.

    Basically, relax your face and try not to force any expressions because that can come across as awkward.

    Also, make sure you're never angling the camera from below your face; that is a universally unflattering angle and turns the vast majority into human thumbs.

    Also, make sure you're lighting is decently diffused so you don't look like a haggard mess.

    Well, someone told me...

    Always have your phone at a downward angle, look in the camera, and try and have natural mouth expression

    I need some tips
    You need Stand in the Light, Tilt your head to the left and then the right to get the best angle for your perfect selfie, you can also get a cool snap by Extend your Neck Forward. It looks funny but different too.
    Use some good selfie apps to take the best selfie and editing pictures.
