I can’t tell you how often I cringe when looking at people’s selfies on Instagram. Why do people feel the need to make duck faces and chuck up deuces every time they take a photo of themselves? The 2 worst culprits of bad selfies tend to be high schoolers (I laugh daily at my little cousin’s Instagram feed) and celebrities (seriously, can’t you just hire a photographer?). Although I generally hate selfies, I will admit there have been a few times when my hair or makeup has looked especially good and I wanted to show it off. Luckily, there are a few ways to take a selfie without looking like Amanda Bynes. Check out the slideshow above for tips on how to take the best #selfie ever.
