If you’re anything like me, your Instagram game is just a little lame.
When you take a selfie, you just try really hard to hide your chins and keep your eyes open long enough to point the camera and take the shot.
Yet you spend hours scrolling through your feed wondering how you live on the same planet as the sun-drenched stylish goddesses you follow. They just seem to nail it.
In reality, the secret to their success is simply picking up on the latest photo posing trends and rolling with them (usually with the help of a professional stylist and photographer).
Here’s a round up of the posing tricks your favourite Insta stars are all over:
They never show their faces.
As Babe recently pointed out, you’ve probably never seen your favourite grammers’ faces. Not in full, anyway.
Yep, they never look directly at the camera. They cover their faces with their hair, their hands, or even a big pair of sunnies. They’ve nailed that casual ‘looking off into the distance’ pose, and there’s a very clever reason they do this.
It’s all about creating mystery and allowing their followers to use their imagination – if you can’t see their face, it’s much easier to imagine yourself on that yacht in the Bahamas or wearing that designer dress.
