A little over 3 years ago, we at CurveMonsters posted a set of guidelines for taking the best selfies for us to consider posting on our popular Instagram page. The response was overwhelming, and 3 years later, the advice we gave is still relevant and needed. If you haven’t checked it out, please feel free to do so.
This brief blog post simply highlights two other best practices for taking the best selfies to increase your chances of getting a repost on our social media pages. Using any tool to stabilize your pictures and getting them at the perfect camera angle is a must. And that is even more urgent for videos, where shaky hands can often blue parts of the video and leave them with unimpressive angles. The videos we include for our very effective “Lifestyles of CurveMonsters” promo campaign are stable, even and have impressive angles.
We recommend using a tripod or anti-gravity suction phone case like the one available on this site (pictured above). If you already have one, great. The idea is to mount your phone so that videos are as stable as possible.
Something else even more important than mounting your phone camera is lighting. We cannot stress this enough. Poor lighting is the enemy of the perfect selfie. One way to help increase lighting for selfies is to use a vanity mirror (pictured below) in conjunction with the overall lighting in the area you’re in.
A vanity mirror can help smooth out the shadows on par with your make up, leaving you looking like a celebrity. So give these tips a try and let us know what you think by writing a review of the products if you decide to buy here!
Back in January, we brought you a list of the 40 most fabulous faces we came across online. As you probably know by now, we scour the internet and social media for the most beautiful and stunning curvy women all over the planet. This means we come across hundreds of online photos regularly. So it is no easy task to identify the 40 most fabulous faces among the best of the Curvynistas! Even now, we surprised ourselves at how many absolutely gorgeous faces we stumbled across. Cudos to all the make up artists (MUAs) out there for your handy facial skills, and congrats to the parents of these lovely Curvynistas for imparting their special DNA power into these gorgeous women. We love it!
Without further ado, we present the 4o Fabulous Faces right now…(The slide show above has all 40)
Earlier this month, we introduced you to this new top list, and we were pleasantly surprised by the response here and across our social media platforms, especially Instagram (@CurveMonsters and @CurveMonstersGlam). Back then, Feb 7, the hit song ‘Bad and Boujee’ was at 185 million views on YouTube. Now, the song is approaching 240 million views in just over 2 weeks! Here in the Dallas area, the song has remained atop the radio air play charts (for better or worst, if you don’t like the nonstop repetition), so clearly, the hook of the song and the title is still captivating many out there. And of course, the most bad and boujee women tend to have eye poppin’ curves and the right evening style to go with it. So now, here are the latest pics from some of the most bad and boujee curvy fashionistas on the planet…and be sure to visit our Instagram page @CurveMonstersGlam to find these pics that are tagged with links directly to each Curvynistas page!
Every now and then, you’ll hear of an A-List celebrity posting a photo that is so stunning that it gets seemingly an endless number of likes on social media, particularly Instagram. And when it gets so many likes, say 1 million or more, tabloids like TMZ take an interest and do a blurb about them. A few such shots actually have brought down certain websites and social media pages, such as Kim Kardashian’s nudes did a couple of years ago. But do they break the internet because they are very attractive in a captivating way, or because of the notoriety of their celebrity status? (Cont’d after pic…)
Given our experience pouring over thousands of photos of the most gorgeous and curvy women on the planet, we have developed an uncanny eye for identifying those pics that can definitely break the internet, or at least show that the curvy fashionista in those photos can bare it all and post photos that can break the internet. In addition, since we are non profit, there is no conflict of interest, meaning we are unbiased in our selections. (Cont’d after pic…)
So how do we identify the pics we think could break the internet? We posted our photo guidelines on this site, but we can recap. Besides being curvy and proportionate, we look for curve friendly style choices, photo quality (including resolution and environment), the contrast between the outfit colors and the background colors, and how much of the body is viewable without distortion or “cutting the curve” as we call it (when key parts of the womanly curves are cut off due to the camera angle/positioning). And most importantly, we usually prefer that “it factor” eye contact between the woman and the camera lens. Believe it or not, not looking into the camera lens can cost up to 20% of likes. For example, a pic that would normally get 100 likes would instead get 80 likes because of lack of eye contact. Few pics can overcome this, though, and we have a few in this collection.
Each pic has the woman’s Instagram name embedded in the text to the right. Without further ado, the photo gallery above contains the stunning, sensational pics we feel have that “internet breaking” quality…
