If you are worried because every time you try out a mirror selfie it turns out wrong, good stick with us as we share our top trending aesthetic mirror selfies and poses to make your pictures stand out.


Standing at your mirror clueless of what to do next, well been there and I know how frustrating it is. I remember how I used to spend a lot of hours taking and deleting my selfies, looking for a great angle, and lighting at the mirror only to end up with a blurry or messed up picture at the end of the day.

It can get so annoying but if you knew what kind of mirror selfie outcome you want to replicate then that would ease up everything and get you snapping and posting without even filters.

Forget about the old and ordinary mirror selfies others take, with a great outfit your selfies have to stand out and bring out your personality.

How Do I Shoot Great Mirror Selfies

A couple of my friends always ask me “Does the pose matter in a mirror selfie?”, and always tell them yes of course. That’s because if I wanted to take a mirror selfie showing off my new heels or Fenty’s I would require a squatting pose to get a desirable look.

There are no set rules for taking great mirror selfies but just a few guidelines like:

  • Lighting

While snapping your mirror selfies you might want to make sure the lighting is right and the room is well lit. This is because most mirror selfies happen in the bathroom and bedrooms and the lightning is not perfect in such places.

If you have a lampshade you can move it around and adjust the shadows in the room or you can use the reflection of the mirror to your advantage by using the flash to create a lens flare.

  • The Right-angle is everything

I have seen friends play with this trick where you could tilt the mirror upwards and have your legs look elongated or making your body look slender by adjusting your phone downwards.

So getting a good angle can result in different beautiful mirror selfies.

  • Background obstruction

You might wanna clear out your background if their things you don’t want appearing on your selfies like a messy room or your lampshade or clothes.

Have clear and well lit backgrounds to make your mirror selfies look perfect.


Having a clear background is highly recommended because it will shift people’s focus on you and not your background.

Enough of the talk, lets get down and snap some great pics for your feed.

  • The Squatting Selfie

Just bought a pair of new white kitten heels and you wanna showcase it, the squat selfie pose is your way to go. It’s easy, simple, and brings out your whole frame, and is very helpful if you have a mirror that’s not tall enough.

It’s also great if you want to showcase how your outfit fits you from the side. Instagrammers refer to this pose as the “shoefie” and are widely used for showcasing new shoes and aesthetic looks.

  • No face No Case

Want to stir up some curiosity and excitement with your fans well try out this pose. It focuses the attention of your viewers on your outfit while covering your face getting them excited. Just hold up your phone and station your head directly parallel to your screen, hold your gaze and snap.

Ordinary selfies are great but add a mirror and you get an outstanding aesthetic selfie to your gallery. There are many ways to take selfies but to me, mirror selfies stand, there is something great about how a shot of your reflection on the mirror spices things up.

After applying your eyeshadow and lipstick there is nothing better than taking a mirror selfie to showcase your looks and share with your friends.
