How many times have you taken a selfie, but hated the lighting? Us too. Well, Lolliflash can help with exactly that. It's a portable light that looks like a lollipop and plugs into the headphone jack of your phone. You charge the gadget up over USB then attach it to your phone, turn it on to one of the three light settings, and snap away! Perfect lighting every time? Yes, please.

Ever wonder why an acquaintance on your Instagram feed looks flawlessly airbrushed? It’s probably Facetune. Facetune is exactly what is sounds like -- an app that lets you tweak imperfections. The app lets you alter anything from the shade of your teeth to the smoothness of your forehead. It’s one of the most professional alternatives to Photoshop! Take this one for a spin if you want to blur out that scratch on the table or a little fly-away across your face. Seriously, Facetune can do it all.

The Lumee phone case gives you the perfect light for selfies while still protecting your phone! It has 2 ultra-flattering strips of LED along the sides, so your selfies can have a perfect glow every time. It even has a button on the back where you can adjust the brightness of the lights. The battery will last around two solid hours on full brightness and 36 hours on the lowest setting. If this wasn’t enough to win you over, Mrs. Kim Kardashian West was spotted with one of these at this year’s Grammy Awards. Time to get YOUR selfie book ready!

Lighting is only one aspect to the perfect selfie game. And where you’re standing in relation to your phone can work wonders as well. You can achieve this distance with the Joby GripTight GorillaPod! It “grips” your phone with a GripTight mount, which then attaches to the GorillaPod Magnetic, a bendable tripod with strong magnets in its feet. The cool thing about this device is that it’ll literally attach itself to anything - think lightpoles, cars, lamps, fences, even FRIDGES.

The best kind of selfie? The one where it looks like it’s not a selfie. If you’re using a smartphone tripod or propping your phone against stacked books across the room, you can still snap a photo from a good distance away using this selfie remote. Take the cable, plug it into your headphone jack, open up camera mode, and snap a photo!
