    Pout, place your hand delicately on your face or make a selfie video to your favourite tune. Just don't forget to post the occasional inspirational message for extra ♥'s.

    Always smile :) Your Instagram isn't just a picture of you, it's a picture of your life. Or at the least the life you want everyone to think you're leading. Come on, the only reason you've kept your ex on Instagram is so they can see how happy you are without them...

    Pull a funny face or stick your tongue out :P Because being fun as well as hot is soooo much better!



  • jourdan dunn

    Always adds a peace sign to your selfies. Because what is the one most important thing our society needs?


  • cara delevingne

    She's a fan of the group selfie, or as we like to call it, a friendfie. So get your mates together - and if they're ALL famous, you're more likely to go viral.
