Several of he products reflect light and help create natural looking, photo-ready skin. Alesha commented on the idea and products selected:

”I’m a big fan of selfies, but often it takes me ages to get the perfect shot – not ideal with my hectic schedule! The Smashbox x HTC Selfie Kit is the new saviour of my makeup bag as it has all the tools to help me look my best. When I combine this with my HTC Desire 620 which acts as my pocket photo-editing suite, I’m always ready for my close-up.”

The makeup kit comes with its own selfie guide for taking some perfect shots that Alesha put together from her own experiences of taking snapshots for her Instagram account. Davis Factor, the founder of Smashbox Cosmetics, shared his own tips for getting the perfect selfie:

”Lighting, as usual, is everything: Find the most natural light to add brightness and avoid shadows on your face. Turn away from the camera at an angle – whenever you face the camera straight on, you’ll be shown at your widest. Want to find the ideal position for your phone while shooting? Hold your arm straight out, then lift up slightly to just above eye level.”
