Killer hair? Check. Killer eyes? Check. Killer? Whatsat?

Taking a good selfie is a lot harder than it looks. Most people simply hold the camera in front of their face and hope for the best. Unfortunately, the results are usually DOA. And with the rise of social media sites and online professional networking opportunities, a good selfie can be the difference between making the sale, or a total FAIL. 

One alleged (former?) member of the Knights Templar Mexican drug cartel perfected the art of selfie-ography. According to Vice, the Knights Templar Cartel once had a Facebook page that was full of selfies (as well as incriminating images of weapons, cash, and other tools of the drug trade). Here are a few tips on how to take digital branding to the next level, courtesy of a Knights Templar member named Broly.

Good Lighting is essential! A nice, soft light can provide a warm contrast between your 9mm and your eyes.


Rock your best assets! Whether its your hair, your lips, or a cool pair of shades taken from one of your victims.


Let's face it, ladies love secrets! So don't be afraid to show your mysterious side.


Most of all, have fun! Take a bite out of life and give them a look that says, "Get to know me, I dare you."
