With more than 9 million followers on Instagram, if there’s anyone we trust for tips on how to take photos of ourselves, it’s Camila Coelho.
Coelho, a content creator with more than 14.7 million followers across Instagram, TikTok and YouTube, is the cover star of STYLECASTER’s “Return to Fashion” issue. In honor of the issue, we asked her for her top tips to take the best Instagram photos of ourselves. Whether you’re an influencer or just want to look more photogenic in pictures, Coelho is here to teach us her selfie secrets, and we’re here to take notes.
Along with her social media career, Coelho also has her own fashion line, Camila Coelho Collection, with Revolve, as well as a beauty brand named Elaluz. While she may be one of the most influential influencers today, that wasn’t always the case. Back when Coelho started her YouTube channel in 2010, the landscape for those who made careers out of social media looked much, much different.
“I remember getting hate from journalists and even brands. I’d sit at a show and say, ‘Yeah, I’m a blogger,’ and I’d get looks,” she told STYLECASTER. “I heard so many things. ‘You will never make it. ‘You’re just a beauty influencer.’ Many things that would make me feel insecure. But at the same time, it gave me the drive to make it and prove this is legit.” With multiple businesses and millions of followers across the world, we’d say Coelho is more than legit.
