The Art of the Selfie #Covermoment

I admit I am a bit addicted to getting the perfect selfie. Check out my Instagram page and you are sure to find pictures of me scattered throughout. I like to think that I have perfected the art of the selfie over the past year and have discovered just the right positions to make the most of my #Covermoment. Hint – make gravity your friend.

#Covermoment Selfie

What is a #covermoment  you ask? It’s the moment one feels her most beautiful and empowered self and wants to share it with the world. For me that is pretty much any time that I actually put a little effort into how I look before heading out. My favourite quick look is wearing a little Covergirl mascara, some Smoochies or Covergirl Lip Balm, and a hint of eye shadow if I have an extra minute or two. Something so easy that not only helps me look my best, but also feel my best.

To get the best #covermoment possible try the following tips:

  • Stand one giant step back from a window, or outside (In a shady spot is best) and look a little to the left or right. Face your body towards the light, and turn your head.
  • Check your background. Having a solid wall or a pretty picture behind you helps frame your beautiful face. Or try laying down.
  • Hold the camera just above eye level and a little off to one side. This will help make your neck look nice and long. 
  • Drop your elbow to avoid selfie shoulder and showing your arm.
  • Smile (please no duck lips)
