Snap, snap, snap! You’re always taking pics for your Instagram, Tumblr and any other social media outlets where your friends can show a glimpse of your life.

It takes you atleast 25 minutes to pick a photo that you feel the most “pretty” in + hit publish.

Trust us, you wouldn’t be as dope if you didn’t have those full eyebrows or defined cheekbones! Soooo check out some ways to embrace your beauty.
Don’t Hide It– So the first step to achieve your confidence is simply accepting and embracing all your characteristics. Don’t try to hide or try to cover up your traits but embrace them. Learn how to accent them instead of making them disappear. You would be surprised to know that the traits that you feel most self conscious about are the ones that others admire. If you have strong cheekbones or full lips wear them well! Find a color that makes your features command the attention in the room.
Hmm Beauty Icon– So sometimes its easier to feel comfortable in your skin if you see someone else embracing similar traits as well. The beautiful thing is that there are tons of women with different hair textures, sizes, features etc. Collect images of women who have characteristics and make a collage.
