Note: There are limited air brushing tools for selfies on this app. However, they do have a variety of presets under portfolio which help you look your best.

Hair must always be styled. Especially when it comes times to taking a selfie and using a ring light. Ring lights use LED technology, so they show everything. You will want to make sure your hair is the best it can be. And if you didn’t have time to get it styled, a messy bun is the best alternative, as it will hide frizzy curls and oily roots in seconds.

For your makeup, stay away from oil-based foundations. Or apply a thin layer of powder foundation or finishing/setting powder over your foundation if the foundation is not matte.

This will stop the shine. Shine is where the LED lighting or camera lights will reflect your oily spots on the face, generally located on the chin and forehead – which never look good.

TIP: For a natural soft glow, only apply finishing powders to your oily zones, including the chin and forehead and leave the cheeks nice and soft, with some cream blush or highlighter.
