You’ll need to prop your phone up on the window sill for this one, but it’s worth it. Short video selfies are the way of the future – especially on the Instagram Story. Could a still photograph show off Kattan’s highlight like this? No, it could not.

Rest your eyes

Want to show off your eye makeup? Too easy. Look down so your lids are exposed, and your liner will take pride of place. Also great if you’re in bright sunlight, as Kattan is here.

Plus, look how good Kattan looks. That could be you (to a degree).
