Ahhhh, golden hour. The best time of day. Flattering lighting and a good pose can really make or break your selfies. If mother nature is providing the lighting, you only need to nail the pose. These are the tried and tested best poses to take advantage of during golden hour and raise your selfie game.

1) Eyes closed, face to the sun
One of the most popular golden-hour poses involves closing your eyes, turning your face to the sun, and bathing in the golden light. Golden hour can give the illusion of perfect skin even if it’s not true. Tilt your chin up to avoid a double chin and keep the selfie focused on your face rather than your outfit.

With good lighting and the warmth of the sun, golden hour is the best time of the day to show off that killer outfit you haven’t been able to wear out yet. If you want the best shot, a selfie stick will help you get the distance. If you don’t have a selfie stick, try tilting your phone diagonally to get most of your outfit in. Now, look up into the camera to get good light on your face and stand with one foot in front of the other to show off your outfit without toppling over.
3) Shade your eyes
Golden hour is incredible, but it is still pretty strong sunlight. Tilt your head up and raise your phone slightly. Look directly into the camera but shield your eyes from the sun using your hand. The shadows make a fantastic contrast. If you don’t want to use your hand, any kind of hat will create a contrast shadow effect. Or, if you take sensible precautions, you can use the light to highlight your features.
4) Light behind
It might sound controversial, but golden hour selfies don’t have to have the sun on your face. They look just as good with the sun behind you. Keep the sun directly behind your head and play with the lighting settings on your phone. This way, you’ll end up with a fantastic halo of light behind you, but just be sure the shadows on your face aren’t too harsh. This looks cute if you are tilting your head slightly down. Pull your chin forward to keep a strong jawline and keep the camera level with your face—practically an angel.
As winter comes to an end (for all of us in the Northern hemisphere), spring can only mean one thing – our legs are coming out of hibernation. For a lot of us, this is the time of year when we realize we could be related to Casper, the friendly selfie ghost. And it isn’t just our legs, it’s our full body. My arms, stomach, and face all indicate Casper is a close family member.
The answer to winter paleness means fake tan sellers are about to make a fortune. But sometimes fake tan and bronzers are not ideal, especially not for selfie tans. A lot of them make you look more orange than an Oompa Loompa, and if you’re outside in the sun, sweating or swimming, they can run or go patchy. In these scenarios, your best option is to add the tan in later. That’s right, you heard me. Adding in a bronze glow either to your or your body is super easy if you know how.

The benefit of adding a tan digitally is that you can look back at a beautiful summer glow without worrying about fake tan streaks or patchy bronzer. Or, if you look back and find you do have a few patches where your tan or bronzer has rubbed off, you can use editing features to correct it and look like a summer goddess.
Here’s our step-by-step guide to adding a golden tan to photos using Facetune.
Step 1: Using our Facetune2 selfie editor app, open your selfie and head to the Retouch section.
Step 2: In the Retouch section, scroll along the bottom bar until you can choose the Glow option. Using your finger, sweep over the area you want tanned to bring a glow to the area. This might make you look slightly pale to start with, depending on your skin tone, but it will help with a natural-looking tan if you follow the next steps.
Step 3: Then select the Vibrance function in the same Retouch section. Swipe your finger over the same area to add even more of a glow. Use the slider to adjust the intensity.

Step 5: Using the color menu, select a color a shade or darker than your skin tone in the picture. If you are already using tan and want to touch it up, use the Picker tool to get an exact shade match. Swipe your fingers over your skin where you want to look tanned.
Step 6: Make sure you use the slider to lower the intensity of the color if it looks unnatural. If you make a mistake or choose the wrong color, use the undo arrow in the bottom left corner to correct your error.
Bonus Step: You can also use the Filters to add an overall glow. The Golden Hour selfie filters can also add a great tan to the whole photo.

Once you get really good you can use several colors in different shades to add more depth to your faux-tan. But once you’ve got it down, it’s super easy to add a natural glow to every photo. A fake tan that won’t run, fade, go patchy, or orange? Digital tanning is the dream!
