By now it's no secret that Kim Kardashian is pretty good at taking her own photo. Check out her Instagram account, and you'll see selfie after selfie of the big-booty new momma. In fact, she's not alone. Get this: According to a new study, 11 percent of all Instagram photos are selfies, for crying out loud! No wonder why I'm seeing so many duck-lips faces on my Instagram feed lately!
Well I have some good news for all you selfie-loving photo-takers: Kim Kardashian recently spilled her selfie secrets to Extra. That's right, you too can take the perfect self-portrait. Here, let's check out Kim's tips:

Tip No. 1. The phone needs to be higher than your face: Ahh, clutch. Kim's got a point here. Generally the higher the camera, the more slender your face looks in pictures.
Tip No. 2. Know your angle: Do you take photos better from the right side or the left? A study last year said everyone's best side is their left side. Seriously! Apparently the left side of our faces shows more emotions.
Tip No. 3. Know your lighting: Are you trying to selfie it up in the dark? Then I have news for you my friend: It ain't gonna look good. Look toward the light to highlight your features instead of casting shadows across your entire face.
Tip No. 4. To duck face or not to duck face: Kim K. is a major fan of the lip pucker (AKA the duck face). If you're not, that's fine, but your selfie just won't have that same Kardashian allure.
