Social media aesthetic moves that positively scream, “Ang ganda ko!” #LoveYourself
The “I am in a shampoo commercial!” Hair Flip
Use it when… you are rocking a good hair day or if your jowa is trying to call your attention while your back is turned.
Work the look: Put on a wide smile that reaches your eyes and gently whip your hair back and forth. (Gently! You want a nicely tousled look and not extreme bedhead.) Be careful not to get a mouthful of hair by using at least one hand to push those strands away.

The “Sakit sa bangs and sa hips but make it fashion!” Pose
Use it when… you want to show off those curves while casually hanging out indoors with friends and your maybe-sorta-kinda-crush.
Work the look: Find a proper wall to lean against, place the arm closest to the surface on your head then position the other arm on your hip. Make sure to straighten your back and jut out your hip away from said wall. Most importantly, don’t forget to relax so it looks more natural.

The “Turning my daydreams into reality!” Stare
Use it when… you want to look effortlessly chic while also flexing that you’re a deep-thinker. (What is the meaning of life?)
Work the look: Find a comfortable spot to sit down, adjust your position so that you’re seated sideways, and give off a hundred-yard stare into the unknown. If you’re wearing a skirt, you may cross your legs instead of bringing one leg up. For the full “I’m a low-key philosopher” effect, you can do this among the greenery in the garden.

The “Too blessed to be stressed!” Stretch
Use it when… you want to put on an attitude of gratitude while flexing that bod. You’ve worked hard to achieve everything good in your life (including that physique) so just own it!
Work the look: Put your hands in the air and stretch them like you’re about to give the universe a great big hug. Do a slow turn while you’re at it! This is best seen during the daytime so you can look literally lit!

The “Living my best cutie foodie life” Expression
Use it when… you just cooked a delicious Click-worthy meal and want to document both the amazing feast and your makeup that’s popping!
Work the look: Grab a fork or spoon and take a small bite from your food. Then close your eyes and chew slowly while pursing your lips.
