unique selfie ideas

Be real, you're tired of scrolling through Instagram and seeing the same tired yawn fest of selfies day in and day out. 'Ya know, same pics, same poses, same selfie ideas.Are you snoozing already?That's what we thought, and that's why today we wanted to chat about some unique selfie ideas.While it can challenging to be completely unique when content is being pumped out like Arnold Schwarzenegger on steroids, there are some ideas out there that are a tad more interesting than a duck face *eye roll*.Let's get creative, shall we?

1) Play with optical illusions

We love this unique selfie idea from Tik Tok Queen Charli D'Amelio.Playing with angles, Charli was able to make her parents look super small next to her. You can do this with any props you want—your dog, a child, your BF, even inanimate objects.The whole point here is to get those creative juices flowing, right?

2) Rotate your pic

Can it really be that simple?Yes, yes, it canWith 220+ MILLION followers, Ariana Grande doesn't exactly need to get creative with her selfies, but she shows us here that simply rotating a standard mirror selfie can make it feel unique.



3) Switch up your style

So when you think about unique selfie ideas, you're probably thinking of unique to everyone.But really, all you have to do is make the selfie unique to you.Best way to do this?Play with your style. You don't have to go full-on Girl Next Door turned Domenetrix, but even just doing your hair a little differently or rocking a bold lip can make your pic feel unique.Selena Gomez illustrates this perfectly playing with voluminous curls and bangs.

4) Experiment with accessories

Jlo inspired us with this one.Whether it's playing with jewelry, showing off a handbag, or rocking your sunnies in a new way, accessories are an easy way to spruce up a basic selfie.Sunglasses on? Sunglasses off? Keep people guessing.
