Considering that Kim Kardashian is the undisputed queen of the selfie, you can assume her makeup artist knows a thing or two about making your face pop on camera. Patrick Ta, who also paints the faces of celebs like Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen and Jessica Alba, spoke to Popsugar and revealed his ultimate selfie hack.
Ta says it’s all in the red filter. Never heard of it? That’s because it isn’t one of your standard filter options on Instagram. You can find the red filter in the color editing section of Instagram, and adjust it’s strength using the toggle located below.
According to Ta, he loves using the red filter on his pictures because it “elevatesthe visibility of your makeup and leaves your complexion bronzed and luminous.” No Facetune or Photoshop necessary. It works a treat in upping your selfie without making it look over edited like many of the traditional Instagram filters tend to.
Still not convinced? Popsugar went ahead and tested this on a few of the most famous celeb selfies and the results speak for themselves. Check them out below and start snapping your own.
