How To Fake The Golden Hour Selfie!

I love a good selfie! But I could never master the "Golden Hour Selfie"!

What is a golden hour selfie?

In photography, the golden hour is the period of daytime shortly after sunrise or before sunset, during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky.


It literally makes your skin look GOLDEN! It is so flattering but very hard to achieve. See during the golden hour you have to look directly into the sun...which can be hard on the eyes but once you master it, your selfie could be amazing!


Well I was scrolling on Pinterest and found THIS post!...How to FAKE the golden hour. So of course I had to try it out. Now I will update this blog once I take a proper sunny selfie but for now we are using the selfies I have!

How did I do it?

  1. Download VSCO (It is FREE on apple and android devices) 

  2. Pick the picture you want to use (preferably one taken outside in a sunny place)

  3. Adjust the temperature +4

  4. Adjust the exposure -4.5 (I change this from time to time based on the photo)

  5. DONE!

Now you look sunkissed and glowing. Happy selfie-ing!
