On our social media profiles we all have at least one of them and ever since dictionary Oxford named it the word of the year 2013 we can’t beat around the bush anymore: the Selfie is a hit! From Kim Kardashian’s signature duckface to Rihanna’s bad girl selfies, how we selfie says a lot about us. Curious to know what your selfie says about you? Then check out these 10 types of selfie below!
PS: I’m also on Instagram so follow me here
1. Duckface Selfie
What it means: You want to look hot & sexy and don’t like to smile. You think a different expression will make you look better
Don’t know why but ever since a couple of celebs introduced this a lot of women think it’s sexy but it’s not. Try smiling, looks good on everybody
2. The Natural Selfie
What it means: You embrace your natural beauty and are not afraid to show your true self(ie). You know that beauty is in the imperfections and your happy with that.
Never done one and not feeling the urge to show myself without make up online
3. Bad Girl/Boy Selfie
What this means: Always pushing the edge you’re looking for strong emotions to feel alive. You get a kick out of the (bad) comments because the attention energizes you.
When I see these type of selfies I feel like there’s more than meet the eye and that’s it’s rarely as bad as it seems. But I do feel there’s an unhealthy need for attention because why share mostly bad girl/boy selfies all the time?
4. Belfie (Body + Selfie)
What this means: boobies and butts all over…are you trying to show us your make up or breasts? You mostly get your confidence kick from your body and the compliments you get for it. We all age so wake up and read a book!
5. Selfie with my Boyfriend
What this means: I want to show you I have the best boyfriend in the world but don’t look at him because he’s mine. Kind of like a trophy message, your boyfriend symbolizes what you value in your life.
6. Vacation Selfie
What this means: Wanderlust, travelious and openminded. Look at the paradise where I’m at while you’re working at your boring office job.
I mostly post pics on Instagram when I’m travelling but rarely a vacation selfie. I prefer showing the view with my followers than only me
7. Shy Selfie
What this means: I don’t reveal everything about myself. I might seem open and social but I have a secret garden that I rarely share with others.
7. Healthies (Healthy Selfie)
What this means: Health and a strong body are important values to me so I want to make sure that I work out. By sharing this selfie I want to show you how committed I am and encourage you to do the same.
Admire people who do work out because I am laaaazzzzyyyyyyyyyy
8. Look at my Celebrity BFF’s Selfie
What this means: You need celebs to underline your value to the world. Being seen with them makes you look important
Posted a selfie with Iggy Azalea and Gabrielle because I never meet celebs lol. Gabrielle’s song ‘Dreams’ has a special meaning to me because dreams do come true and whenever I would reach a point of doubt, her song would play on the radio and TV and give me a powerful sign that things would work out
9. Silly Selfie
What this means: You don’t take yourself to seriously and know the importance of having a good laugh. Relax and enjoy is your motto and you’re the life of the party in your friends group.
10. Double Selfie
What this means: You have two sides to your personality. You might be shy in one area and very confident in another. Some people might feel they don’t know you because it can be different each time.
So tell me ladies, what selfie type are you?
