Lately, I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Instagram. I even find myself pausing moments with friends and stopping on the street for long periods of time just to get the perfect shot. So when celebrity stylist, Jen Rade, aka The Wicked Witch of Wardrobe, pulled together her top five tips on how to get “InstaFab” for Instagram, I immediately took notice. Jen makes a living out of helping people look their best in photographs. So not only does she feel right at home when determining what works and what doesn’t as a Project Runway: Under The Gunn judge, she can also show you how to take the perfect selfie. Enjoy her InstaTips:
Red lipstick is the one statement piece that can take your look from average to great – even jeans and a t-shirt look better with red lips.
Show Your True Colors
Any color is the best color to wear for a selfie – that’s what filters are for! The whole point of a selfie is to express yourself so there’s no right or wrong.
Less is more
When it comes to makeup and accessories, everything can’t be something!
If at first you don’t succeed…
Play around and take 10 selfies until you find the right light and angle. Lighting is the most important!
Filter or no filter?
Sometimes I use filters, sometimes I don’t. I go for whatever makes the mood of the picture look cool.
