It's a well-known fact Kim Kardashian is the queen of selfies. The woman may as well have a bachelor's degree in taking photos of herself.
I'm not quite sure how she does it, to be honest. Taking a selfie isn't as easy as it looks.
IT'S AN ART, OK? It requires hella skill to make that front-facing camera shot look nice. When I have it on, I actually look like Jabba the Hutt.
Yeah, it ain't pretty.
So, when I found out the secret weapon Kim Kardashian uses to take flawless photos, I was immediately interested. Not only did I try it out, I learned a few tips and tricks from Kim K along the way.
All right, are you ready to know her secret? ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE PREPARED FOR THIS?
OK, OK, it's her phone case.
YUP, THAT'S IT. Kim Kardashian loves her LuMee phone case and has never been afraid to show it. Here's what she said about it on her app,
The secret to a good selfie is definitely lighting. I love my LuMee case! It has front facing lights that light you up anywhere you are, especially in dark places.
The case completely illuminates with just the touch of a button. It's magical AF.
So does the LuMee case actually work? Could it save my selfies? And what other tips does Kim have for taking the perfect pics?
Well, I got my hands on a LuMee case to find out. I'm ready to look just like Kim Kardashian. MY TIME IS NOW.
Back in the day, (like three years ago) Kim actually recorded a tip video for Extra TV on how to take the perfect selfie with her friend, Brittny Gastineau.
She shared it's important to have the camera angled from above. As Kim puts it,
Know your angle.
Got it, Kim. Sounds good.
Kim also admitted she's a fan of the duck face because it highlights your cheekbones. DULY NOTED.
OK, time to make me Kim Kardashian. LET'S DO THIS.
Step one: Hire a team of professionals to assist you during the shoot. Pick qualified candidates who have photo and beauty backgrounds.
Step two: Get the right angle.
Wrong angle, bitch. Those chins are OUT. OF. CONTROL.
OK, that's better. LOL, I hate myself.
No filter. This look is all na-tur-al.
So here's when the LuMee case really comes in handy.
To test out how powerful the LuMee light actually is, I went into a completely dark room (AKA my office's storage closet).
LOOK AT THAT ILLUMINATION. It looks like daytime. PS. Don't mind how disgusting and sweaty I am.
Just picture being at a bar with friends or spending an evening outside. If you want to take a selfie, it's usually way too dark out.
SO BOOM. THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS! Take out your LuMee phone case and light that shit up.
Here's a behind-the-scenes shot so you can really see the LuMee case in action.
OMG, is that Kim Kardashian?!
WE. ARE. TWINS.
