Be it the notorious duckface, kawaii peace sign or the ever suggestive close-up, the selfie has undeniably made its mark in modern culture – especially with women.
To the dismay of many who struggle to rationalize with this digital phenomenon, Oxford Dictionary declared ‘selfie’ as the 2013 word of the year.
If you happen to be one of the many, here are three sound reasons why you should begin to embrace the selfie in the Lion City.
1. That Fleeting Moment!Every day, we primp and preen before the mirror prior to stepping out and face the inevitable – It may always be sunny in Singapore, but let’s face it – We look our best before the humidity attacks.
So before the make-up oxidizes and the hair starts to frizz, there’s nothing wrong with loving yourself and having the rest of the world witness that!
Selfies can be used to document the things you love to do at that point in time, and of course the times when you feel you look good.
Or just use it as an excuse to showcase your styling or make-up talent, whichever reason for that selfie, it’s all good!
2. Getting To Know Yourself BetterHow much have you changed in a year? Should you go back to blonde hair? Are you freaking out over a new mole that you thought was never there?
With the busy pace in Singapore, we sometimes forget to pause and focus on ourselves and the changes in our lives.
With selfies, you can take as many pictures as you wish, explore multiple angles and lighting environments.
Flip through your selfies once in awhile and either grimace at the fashion faux-pas you made, or contemplate re-dying that hair colour that once got you that record-high number of likes.
3. Every Moment is One to RememberChange is constant in our Nation’s march for progress, and as cliché as it sounds, time waits for no one.
Seize the day whenever you can to capture that historic landmark or occurrence as your backdrop to your selfie – Whether it’s hail or haze, it’s a good conversation starter.
Smartphones have allowed the convenience of having a photo diary with us wherever we go.
Realising the potential of selfies, OPPO’s weapon of choice is the N1 Mini, the best selfie smartphone which boasts an impressive 13-megapixel camera which rotates 195° for extra clear selfies!
The nifty smartphone, which comes in two feminine colours - White and Cool Mint Blue, also packs a punch with Pure Image 2.0 – a photography enhancement solution for 24MP images and Super Zoom capability, to take your selfie to the next level!
