Besides knowing your best angle and having a confident smile, here are other things you should consider to make you look fresh and blooming in your profile pictures.

Improve the lighting condition

If you are indoors, make sure you are facing the window so the sun's natural light will prevent shadows from appearing on your face. In flourescent lighting, it would help to hold a sheet of white paper to act as a reflector on your face. At night, play with the lighting available and do everything you can to make the photo brighter.


If you want to take indoor lighting a notch higher, get yourself a selfie light like a portable ring light or a phone case with built-in lighting.

Put on a little makeup

While we're all for embracing your face without makeup, a little bit of color and definition on your face won't hurt. Define your kilay, add a bit of blush, curl your lashes, and swipe on an MLBB. And don't forget to smile, okay? You'll look extra fresh, stat!

Choose a pretty background

Remember how celebs like Marian Rivera, Heart Evangelista, Kim Jones, and Katarina Rodriguez usually choose something related to nature as their picture backdrop? The colors of flowers, trees, and the beach complement our skin tones, and these add instant life to pictures.

Alternatively, pretty restaurant backgrounds, painted walls, and wallpapered interiors make great backdrops, too. You can also double the effort by making sure your outfit and makeup is bagay with your chosen background's colors.

Use filters

There is no shame in using filters. Photo-editing apps can adjust the brightness and clarity of your photo. Plus, the filters can adjust the color settings of your pic and this can help set the mood of the shot. We love VSCO, a free app for both iPhone and Android users. Here are sample filters you can try:



Take note of the photo quality

A grainy resolution won't do justice to your pretty face. We don't require you to use a hardcore SLR to take your photo. Simply remember to fix the settings of your phone to guarantee high resolution shots. Normally, the bigger pixels and MB, the better the resolution is.
