We’re all for the au naturel look but there’s something to be said for a little bit of enhancement. And that’s just what Beauty Magic is offering. This powerful tool corrects acne, perfects skin tone, even plumps the lips and that’s just what we’re mentioning. Have a look in the Beauty Magic toolbox and you’re sure to find a new favorite go-to quick-fix.

Step 2: Relight

Now that your face is subtly enhanced, it’s time to take your flawless selfie edit to the next step. And we recommend Relight. This tool allows you to bring more light to a selfie taken in less than optimal lighting. The Custom feature lets you get up close and shine a light on the face from any angle. There are also fun, colorful options like Technicolor to add a fun pop to your pics.

  • Go to the Tools Tab on the Main menu.
  • Select Relight and choose the lighting option you prefer. We’re using Custom.
  • Adjust the lighting by swinging the “spotlight” about the face in the selfie.
  • Tap the checkmark to save your edit

Step 3: Filter

We’ve said it before but since you may be new, we’ll say it again. Filters are the best way to finish up any AirBrush edit and that goes for a flawless selfie as well. AirBrush has a wide selection of Filters, so you’re sure to find one that vibes with you and your selfie. Try anyone out and adjust the levels to suit you. That’s the last step!

  • Go to the Filters Tab on the Main menu.
  • Scroll through the Filters selection. We’re using FJ-1here. Narrow down your choices by choosing a category.
  • Adjust the intensity of the effect by using the slide bar.
  • Tap the checkmark to save your edit
