There’s a reason Selena Gomez is the most popular person on Instagram with a whopping 89 million followers -- the girl clearly knows a thing or two about taking the perfect pic. Or, at least, editing the perfect pic. Or, uh, editing a pic that’s not perfect to make it appear perfect. After all, what is Instagram if not a haven for heavily filtered FOMO inducers?
If you aspire to Selena’s level of selfie stardom, you’re in luck — her makeup artist Hung Vanngo has decided to bless us with a detailed guide to Sel’s photo editing secrets. Get ready to take notes ...
Vanngo shared the above images on his Instagram, with the caption “Instagram photo 101.”
“Here is an unedited & edited versions of an Instagram photo,” he wrote, before detailing every single edit that had been made to the pic. Instead of using a filter, Vanngo whipped up a custom look by using the following tools: brightness, contrast, warmth, saturation, color, vignette, and sharpen.
Nope, no weird face altering app here — just your standard Insta tools. Stars: they’re just like us!
