Selfies aren’t going anywhere, and why should they? If you’re looking good and no one is around to see it, just take a photo of yourself and put it on social media. Actually, before you do that, you should probably watch this video above that explains how to take better selfies.

Yes, better selfies. Basically, there are somethings you should be aware of in order to take the optimal selfie. For starters, you’re going to want to make sure the lighting is on point. The video recommends avoiding mid-day photos, and focusing on sunset lighting, but you already knew that those sunset selfies were¬†the best, didn’t you?

Also, be sure to know your best side. Apparently, most people prefer their left side, but let’s be honest, it’s really the side in which your bangs fall.

Another thing to keep in mind? Angles. You should never take a selfie straight on, where you’re in the center of the photo. Instead, try to angle yourself to the side. Also, angle your face and phone. Keep your chin down, and your phone up.

Finally, and most importantly, have fun! But ditch the duck faces and the selfie stick, just smile — it’s your best accessory after all.
