Sure, Hung Vanngo’s makeup skills are supremely masterful, and typically his canvas is of the perfectly-proportioned, annoyingly symmetrical variety. But, the vast celebrity list in Hung’s Instagram feed always look that little bit too perfect. Selena, eternally. Em Rata, every time. J.Lo, don’t even start.

Of course, a filter can fix a myriad of beauty ailments (blemishes, redness, shine, dullness, ghostly white – hello, saturation), but Hung recently revealed to us that in fact the secret to his stellar beauty selfies is something else. White. Card. Yes. The same white cardboard synonymous with school arts and crafts, or online delivery day.  “I always use a white card on the bottom.”
Hung explained, “People always think the skin looks glowing but I always just have white card! Even when people have pimples it airbrushes the skin. I even did a demo at the office the other day!”

Clarendon, be gone. Photoshop, laters. 4578308379378 takes, no more. Just add a humble sheet of white card at the bottom of your photo and your radiant, brightened, lightened, imperfection-free guise awaits. All hail its perfecting, reflecting powers.

OK, off to Officeworks, BRB…
