Because seriously, if you post a selfie on Instagram and only your mom and BFF like it, does it really even count?
Uhh, in our books, not really.
It's time to roll up your sleeves, get creative, and try out some of these selfie ideas.
1) Get sexy
There's no beating around the bush here, sex appeal always works, even on Instagram.
Scratch that, especially on Instagram.
You don't necessarily have to go full-on Kylie Jenner for sex appeal, though.
Opt for a mirror selfie that shows off your long legs, casually wear a top with a chic plunging neckline, or even just flashing your best bedroom eyes to the camera can all work to help you get more likes on your photos.
2) Selfie with someone
We know you're the star of the show when it comes to your Instagram feed, but, let's be honest, selfies with other people tend to get you more likes, plain and simple.
Whether it's a cute shot with your BF, a loving post with your mama, or even an adorable shot with your pup, taking a selfie with someone almost always results in more likes and follows.
3) Cute home decor + stylish outfit
I mean, sure, you can snap that mirror selfie with your unmade bed in the background and a pile of laundry sitting in the corner, butttttt if you want more likes on your photos, maybe it's time to stop being such a slob-kabob.
Next time you go to snap a mirror selfie, make sure that not only is your outfit a winner, but you've also got a cute backdrop to make it all come together.
4) Don't take yourself too seriously
Just don't, okay?
Well, like, if you've got a serious caption or you're posting about something important, maybe it's a good time to get serious.
But if you're looking for more likes and follows on your pics, now is a good time to tone down the serious tone and have some fun.
Be silly, don't aim for perfection, and write something witty or clever in your caption. You win.
