Currently listening to Freestyle Rap – Hazy
I remember when Instagram first came out I was sooo clueless as to what it was. My youngest brother was the one who put me through, even after that I still didn’t think it was a big deal.

In today’s post I’ll be sharing the 2 major apps I use to edit the pictures I post up on IG and this applies to pictures I take with my phone and those I get of the web and other IG pages.
First of all taking a good shot, having a good background, lightning and all that is key but the good news is even the worst pictures can still look good after a bit of tweaking. The apps I use are Facetune 2 and VSCOcam, for selfies I use Perfect365 just to enhance my facial features.

I always reduce the temperature and exposure, this is what makes my pictures look really cool toned, also reducing the skin tone makes me look less yellow. And that’s all I do, this also applies to my scenery/environment and product posts.
After using the whiten tool as per usual I use an app called Perfect365 (Also available for free on Android). I use this app to smoothen my face, enlarge and whiten my eyes and also slim my face. Then I continue with the VSCOcam and use the same edit, I just copy and paste. Depending on how bright or dim the picture is I’ll only adjust the exposure.
If you look through my feed you’d notice that all my pictures have this pinkish purple hue to it, this is due to the tint on the VSCOcam. I turn it up to the highest (+6.0) for full effect. You can get this filter on any app even on the Instagram app.
In this image or images like this I usually whiten the whole picture and apply the same VSCOcam edits.
