The rise of the selfie is the most innovative way of bringing out our narcissistic tendencies - advertising your own brand of photography, also starring you.

Adjusting to capture your best angle is the key ingredient to be catapulted into stardom online. Poses are not limited to boring standing postures or emo looks. Surprisingly, trending selfies gave birth to famous poses which have been mimicked globally. Selfies are fun and a creative way of expressing your personality. But, what makes a photo compelling? What makes a photo unique among others? How can you use makeup to give life to your face?

Get your cams ready and make sure to select your favorite selfie below:

The Gaga Pose                                                

Mother monster captures our imagination in different ways. Her eccentric and bizarre sense of fashion has caught us dumbfounded in a world other than our own. Imagine a futuristic vision, aliens and a whole lot more. Strike a pose and get her angle right.

The Look: Select a dark shade eyebrow pen and accentuate your eyebrows. Go back to her official music videos and customize the monster makeup to your liking. Probably add more than a couple of canvasses on your face, cuz that's how Mother Monster likes it.

Justin’s Way

This pop icon can’t get enough of the lens and so he decided to take matters in his own hands.

Justin Bieber

The Look: To achieve Bieber’s pose, make sure to flaunt your muscles. Mess up your hair to achieve an out-of-bed look. The face expression should show a hard day’s work out session.

Go Beachie

Lighting is everything. The goal is to tell the world how much you love cruising in the beach. There are definitely a lot of stories to tell.

Brigitte Bardot
It's not really a selfie, they didn't have smartphones those days... but you get the idea right?

The Look: Tan yourself in the sun. Choose a location where the sun shines directly from your body and don your best shades to complete the look. Wait! Wet that gorgeous hair and pout your lips a bit. That’s the spirit of a beach bummer in Ibiza much nearer to the pose of the iconic actress Brigitte Bardot.

Look up! Look up!

Posing is not all about facing forward. The new way is to look up! You got that right.

 

Look Up
Not a selfie, but do you think you can achieve the look? I think it's really cute..

The Look: Choose a fun angle where the light touches your face beautifully. Gaze up (doesn’t matter if it’s right or left). The important thing is to infuse your personality with the pose to add spice and character.

The Ultimate Pout

Flaunt those beautiful lips together with that gorgeous face.

The Look:  Choose a fun colored shirt or dress. Select the best back drop with great lighting. Pout your lips and angle your face to get the right proportion showcasing your eyes.
