The #Selfie – Facts

The Selfie!

The Selfie – Facts!

Considering I’m a fashion and beauty blogger I’ve never taken a proper “Selfie” where I sit and pose to perfect it, I know, I know…something’s not right there but I think the more thought that goes into a photo the worse it is and knowing me – I’ll end up pouting like Victoria Beckham and that’s not good!

I do have some wonderful facts about Selfie’s though which have come from a recent study from The Body Shop and I found them to be quite interesting! 馃檪

The Facts

– The Average British Woman will spend on average 753 hours perfecting her selfie!

– Soft or Moody Lighting is the most popular for a selfie

– Smartphone Filters are used 37%

– ‘Smizing’ or smiling with your eyes is most popular – ‘Smizing’ made famous by Tyra Banks!

– Cardiff is the most likely place to use filters.

– Southampton is most likely to exaggerate the pout.

– Newcastle most likely to use flattering lighting – as a proud northerner myself that’s probably what I would do too! 馃檪

So there are some facts from The Body Shop – The research took place at the launch of the Insta-Blur which is a product that “blurs” imperfections for lovely skin – more to come on that in a post soon! 馃檪

Let me know what you do when taking Selfies….Should I start? :s

    I’m guilty of taking far too many selfies! I never used to, but as my confidence in myself has grown, the more I’ve taken! It could be seen as vain, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with being confident in yourself! My instagram is starting to have a few! haha. If you feel like taking one go ahead! 馃檪

      Hahaha – there’s nothing wrong with taking selflies and I agree, the more your confidence grows the more you might take!! I just don’t take them that much because by the time I remember it’s too late and sometimes I do feel a little awkward!! :/

      You’re on instagram?? What’s your username – follow!!! 馃檪 xxxx

    I have to confess, I love a selfie if it turns out nicely! Usually takes me about 150 shots to get it right though! x

    Haha these are some great facts. I love things like this, wherever did you find out that the Body Shop was dishing out these stats? I don’t think I’ve ever taken a serious selfie. That is, past the age of 14 when Facebook profile photos were all moody selfies. Omg I watched the last season of ANTM, which was my first series ever, and was wondering what the heck Smizing was. Finally, I find out! Thanks for that. Rosemary x
