Ready For Your Closeup: 5 Most Gorgeous Celeb Selfies On Instagram

Good lighting + right angle = perfect selfie. This universal formula is crucial to filling our Instagram feeds. But for some, and by some we mean any celebrity that has a social media presence, proper selfie etiquette need not be followed. Below, five celebs whose stunning beauty close ups will go down in selfie history. 

1. Kylie Jenner

Kim Kardashian’s selfie skills were no doubt bestowed upon younger sister Kylie. Flaunting her staple rosy-nude pout and infinite lashes, the hazel-eyed beauty never passes up an opportunity to snap a buzzworthy selfie. And while we’re loving her current long locks, this picture has us missing her blue-green bob. Get her colored ombré with Bumble & Bumble's Spraychalk ($19)!

2. Joan Smalls

When it comes to supermodel Joan Smalls, every selfie rule we’ve ever been taught can be tossed out the window. Seriously, who needs good lighting with cheekbones like hers? Chiseled to perfection, they complement her equally fierce gunmetal smoky eye—get the sultry look with the Boudoir Eyes palette from Too Faced ($36), which includes both matte and shimmer shades that blend together beautifully.

3. Rita Ora

The British popstar pledged to never let us down—and she meant it, because her helfies (hair selfies) never disappoint. Here, she paired a classic cat eye and red lip with a rad braided topknot-pony duo, courtesy of Chris Appleton, the man responsible for Ora’s hair masterpieces. DIY that hair with Mia's braided headbands ($9), Bumble & Bumble's Semisumo Hi-Shine, Lo-Hold Pomade ($28), a straightening product like this Straight Spray from Living Proof ($29), and with Drybar's Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray ($25) to finish it off. Nyx Cosmetic's Soft Matte Lip Cream ($6) will give you that bold red, and get the perfect cat-eye with the Magic Marc'er from Marc Jacobs Beauty ($30).

4. Beyoncé

If heaven has angels, Queen B is clearly one of them. Not only did she fit a backstage selfie in between costume changes, but her honey-dipped hair appears to be blowing. Another indication of her supernatural beauty? Her ability to make the least appealing lipstick shade—matte brown—look flawless. Like we said, angel. Dare to try this look yourself? Your best bet is the highly-pigmented, long-wear matte Lip Tar from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics ($18) in Anita—or go even darker with the Black Dahlia.

5. Shay Mitchell

Mitchell is serving flirty, feminine appeal in this selfie featuring a faux fringe and radiant orchid lipstick, which by the way, is everything. To get that electric shade of purple, Mitchell’s makeup artist Carlene K paired MAC’s Lipstick in Violetta ($16) with the brand’s Lip Pencil in Magenta ($16) and finished with Benefit Cosmetics' Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Kiss You ($16).
