Utilize a Self-Timer

Self-timers are key to taking a fabulous sexting selfie. The iPhone camera has a built in 3 second or 10 second self-timer, however, if you need more time there are plenty of apps to help get the job done.

Always From Above

Taking a selfie from above is a great way to look neat and petite, while also highlighting those lovely tatas. This position works best sitting or laying down, as your body can look pretty distorted if you try this one standing up.

Understand Your Angles

Again, if Tyra taught me anything about being a model, it's understanding your angles. It takes some practice time in the mirror, however, many of you are probably already familiar with your good side and know how to work it for a selfie.
