How To Edit Your Selfies Like a Pro (Beginner Friendly)




 How To Edit Your Selfies Like a Pro





Hi guys! Welcome back to my blog. So editing your pictures are not as difficult as they seem. I shared a post a few weeks ago about 4 Free Apps You Need To Download Now For Bomb Pictures, so I'm going to be using two of those apps to briefly explain how I do it.  For editing my selfies in particular, I use two apps Facetune2 and then finally VSCO cam, I don't use the Instagram editor after all these steps cause then it would just be too much. Before editing, you have to make sure you take a nice, clear picture. I'll be sharing a post later on how to take great pictures with your phone camera.

How To Edit Your Selfies Like a Pro I uploaded his picture into the Facetune 2 app. First, you want to zoom into the face so you can see clearly what's going on. I use Facetune2 for editing my face mainly, smoothing and removing spots and all that and then VSCO for filters and adjustments mainly.

  • First thing I do is to go to the 'Retouch' tab and use  the 'whiten' tool to whiten my eyes and teeth and if I'm wearing a white top or standing in front of a white background, then I whiten it too. So I just go over it with my fingers. Not too much just lightly and you can increase or reduce the intensity from below and see the changes. 
  • I then use the 'smooth' tool to smoothen around my forehead, jaws, cheeks and chin area to make it look like I have clear skin.
  • I use the 'details'  tool to go over my lips, and eyebrows cause I want them to stand out and my lipstick to pop. 
  • I use 'glow' tool all over my skin, face and hands and reduce the intensity a lot, so it just makes me a little lighter.
  • I had a pimple around my chin, so I used the 'conceal' tool on it to cover it up. 
  • Because I have a very oily face, I use the 'matte' tool over my forehead and nose to reduce the oiliness and shine. 
You mustn't do these steps but I do it once in a while if I want to reshape or resize any part of my body although you have to be careful not to distort your face. So under 'tools' tab, under 'face', I used the jaw to reduce the size of my cheeks a bit and you can also increase or reduce your smile and face width. After all that, the picture looked like this.

 Next still under 'tools', I used 'adjust' to increase brightness to 22 and contrast to 25 just because my Instagram pictures have to be really bright. You don't have to.

I saved the picture to camera roll, and then uploaded it into VSCO cam, where I choose what filter to use. I mostly use M5 or F2. I used F2 in 5.9 for this photo
