10 Tricks To Taking A Picture Perfect Selfie!

July 05, 2015 2 min read

If you're looking to take a selfieas flawlessly as some of the pros (Kim K, Ariana, Kate Upton), look no further! We have put together the top 10 selfie secrets to getting that perfect shot! Whether you are at the gym, by the pool or in the car (scratch that, please don't selfie and drive). Tip One: Scope Out The Background Don't get caught snapping a mirror pic of you in a hot bikini while your unmade bed and pile of laundry chills in the backdrop. Tip Two: Avoid Awkward Angles  Attempt to take your pic without getting an awkward outstretched arm in the way. Keep all your shots in a close proximity to your face. Tip Three: Find Your Light  Good lighting is key. Avoid standing in light that is too bright and will wash you out, or make you look like you don't have eyebrows. The best trick is to stand by a window or door and use the natural light to your advantage. Don't get too close though, because it may wash you out! Tip Four: Flip It  Give your hair a little flip before pushing the button. This will add a few seconds of volume! Tip Five: Soften Up  Applying a light BB or CC cream to your skin pre-selfie will give it a very natural, soft and blended appearance. It will also conceal dark circles and any blemishes you want to blur out, while feeling light as air! Tip Six: Accessorize Right  A glint of pretty polish, an eye-catching lip colour or an adorable bracelet add flair to your pic! Tip Seven: No Duck Lips Allowed!  This should be number one! No one thinks that look is attractive. A subtle pout is fine, but don't go full on duck! Tip Eight: Get The Perfect Filter The best filters are ones that don't look obvious. Nashville is great for fair skin and Valencia looks marvellous with darker skin tones. Willow provides a vintage black and white look. Tip Nine: Fun Hashtags  Keep your Instagram fresh by mixing up your hashtags! (Pro Tip, make sure you actually look like you're barefaced when using #nomakeup) Tip Ten: Don't Over-Critique   As silly as it may sound, selfies can become an obsession. So make sure you back up from the lens and remember that your face is beautiful even if the lighting isn't working for you. Share your best selfie tips and tricks with us! Leave a comment below!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
