Kim Kardashian is obviously the queen of selfies, but it isn’t all about finding the best angle! When it comes to taking her #Flawless photos, the reality darling employs a secret weapon — and you can SHOP it right here if you want to turn up the glam on your photos, just like Kim! Her secret? A selfie light phone case!
Lighting is everything — just ask Kim Kardashian! The self-proclaimed selfie-enthusiast, 35, always looks picture perfect and ready for a close-up, even if she snaps a photo when she throws her hair up or posts mid-workout sesh. So, what’s her secret? Kim, (and her famous family, of course!), rely on the LuMee — a nifty phone case that literally lights up to illuminate your face, giving you the appearance that one could only achieve with professional lighting. These days, it seems like Kim would never think of snapping a selfie without turning her case on — in fact, she even used it when she posed with Hillary Clinton!
While we aren’t lucky enough to have a glam squad at our disposal on a daily basis, the light-up case definitely comes in handy — and it can do much more than just illuminate your face. In fact, here at HollywoodLife, we’ve even used the case as side lighting when trying to achieve the perfect #OOTD shot — impressive, right? (You can see the final shot here).
So, how does the case actually help you achieve more glam selfies, ala the queen of social media? The LED lights brighten up your photos and fill in shadows on your face, (it’s like an instant filter!). It also comes in handy for when you’re trying to capture the moment in a dim room, like when you’re trying to achieve the perfect #NoMakeup-makeup, #IWokeUpLikeThis shot or when you’re in a dark restaurant, club or bathroom. While it does have a dimmer, be aware of the brightness — yes, people will notice you snapping away, (but they’ll probably just be jealous. After all, even Hillary Clinton is trying to get her hands on one!). The dimming feature offers you the ability to control the level of brightness to find the perfect look for your shot. The LuMee takes 30-45 minutes to reach a full charge. Once it’s ready to go, it will stay lit at full power for up to two hours. On the lowest brightness, you can snap away for almost 36 hours.
If you want to SHOP for a LuMee, you’re in luck. You can buy the LuMee for an iPhone 6, ($54.95), or iPhone 6 Plus, ($55.90), or for the Samsung Galaxy S6, ($49.95).
