The Perfect Mirror Selfies I used to think a “mirror selfie” was only one kind of picture. This TikToker also masters the art of looking flawless in a seated position. I have been wrong for so long about so many things. On Location If you have posing down, but you can’t think of a single place to take your pictures, TikTok has that covered too (btw, if you’re really serious about spicing up your Instagram feed, @mjhedderman on TikTok is a must-follow).
