3 Skin-Perfecting Apps for the Perfect Selfie

Have you ever scrolled past someone’s selfie and wondered how their photos appear so flawless? It’s simple. They’re using the right editing tools. Sure, natural lighting and fortunate genetics play a role here, as does holding the camera at the right angle. But let’s face it, most selfies are touched up quite a bit. The trick, outside of having the right apps downloaded and at the ready, is to keep your picture looking as natural as possible. Be sure to bypass obvious filters, and highlight your best features.

Below, I’ve taken the same (albeit not very good) desk selfie and edited it using three different skin-perfecting apps. Clearly I’m no Taylor Swift, but a few clicks of an app upgraded my selfie significantly. Keep scrolling to see the original, how it looks post-edit, and find out what each app has to offer.
