What We Don't Like

Having trouble capturing that perfect selfie under great lighting that brings out all your best features? If so, you may want to try Facetune -- a selfie editing app that's just like Photoshop, but without all the complicated tutorials and editing tricks you need to learn first.

Facetune's intuitive interface lets you smooth out your skin, whiten your teeth, reshape your jawline, emphasize your eyes and so much more. It's really one of the best apps out there if your main priority is to look your absolute best.

Since it's a pretty advanced app, it's not available for free. You can get it for just about $4.00 though from both the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

What We Like

  • Lets you experiment with different makeup brands without buying makeup.

  • Photos can look natural and unaltered with careful editing.

What We Don't Like

  • Automatically slims your face.

  • Most of the pre-made settings make you look clownish.

If you're a female who loves to take selfies, you may already know just how hard it can be to capture how great you really looks on camera. Perfect365 is an app that can fix that.

The app lets you give yourself makeovers with a tap of your finger. You can select styles that give you an everyday look, a chic look, a romantic look and more. If you want to fix any specific features like your hair, lips or skin, you can do that too.

It's even been reported that Kim Kardashian is a huge fan of this app for editing her selfies.

You can get Perfect365 for free for iOS, Android, and even Windows Phone devices.

What We Like

  • You can make some interesting collages.

What We Don't Like

  • Pro version only comes with 12 background templates.

  • You can't leave the editing screen without saving or closing the app.

Cloning has become a really cool new selfie trend. When done just right, it can look really awesome, and you can clone yourself two, three, four or more times!

Split Pic is one of the best cloning apps out there. Not only does it let you clone your selfies, but it also lets you rotate them, flip them, and fade them into other photos for an extra cool effect.

What We Like

  • You can purchase packs of extra filters.

  • Interface is perfect for iOS devices.

What We Don't Like

  • Lacks basic editing tools.

  • Occasional sluggish performance.

Want to blow your social media friends and followers away with some really freaky editing effects? Lensical turns your regular selfies into amusing, yet totally real looking transformations.

You can turn yourself into an old man or woman, give yourself a beard or a mustache, and see what you'd look like if you were bald. When you're all done, you can instantly share them to your favorite social networks.

French Girls: Get drawings of your selfies.

What We Like

  • You can commission artists to make professional digital paintings for you.

  • Excellent platform for artists to connect with each other.

What We Don't Like

  • Learning how to draw on an iPad or iPhone takes patience.

  • No Android version.

The French Girls app turns selfie-taking into a game. If you remember Draw Something, it's a little like that -- but with selfies instead of descriptions.

You take selfies, and other users of the app will draw them for you. Conversely, you can draw selfies of other people and send them back when you're done.

If you've got an artistic side, this is a great app for killing time and exploring your own creativity. (And it's a plus if you can use a stylus to draw on your device.)

You can get French Girls for free for iOS devices only right now from the iTunes App Store.

CamMe: Go hands-free when taking selfies.

What We Like

  • Allows you to fit everyone into group shots.

  • Seamlessly transfers photos to your library.

What We Don't Like

  • You can only take pictures with the front-facing camera.

  • No filters or editing features.

The typical selfie is usually taken by holding your smartphone in one hand and extending your arm out to get the shot. That arm can look pretty awkward when it shows up in the photo sometimes.

CamMe helps solve that problem by giving you a hands-free selfie option. You can set up your device, stand in front of it at a distance, and then use hand gestures to signal the app to start taking photos.

Great idea, right? CamMe is available for free for iOS devices only at the moment.

Frontback: Take a selfie with both your front and back camera.

What We Like

  • Social media integration makes sharing photos especially easy.

  • Works well with a wide range of devices.

What We Don't Like

  • Forces you to sign up using an existing social media account.

  • Both cameras can't take pictures simultaneously.

Most mobile devices come equipped with both a front and back camera. Ever wondered how cool it would be to snap a photo from both of them at the exact same time? Frontback lets you do just that!

Share exactly what you're looking at, plus your face as you're looking at it with this app before posting it for the whole community to see. Frontback is built to be like a social network, so you can follow other friends and even react to their posts by leaving them a five-second video.

Frontback is available for free for iOS and Android.

  • Ideal for small touch-ups.

What We Don't Like

  • Periodically crashes.

  • Still waiting for an Android app.

If you're on the hunt for apps that give you really professional looking makeovers, then Pixtr may be the one you're looking for. The app uses advanced facial feature detection technology to transform your selfies and make you look your best.

You can use Pixtr to sculpt your face, smooth out your skin, remove blemishes, get rid of shine, whiten your teeth, add some color to your lips and so much more. When you're done, you can easily share your finished selfies to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp and email.

This is one of those premium apps that's not free, but worth the small purchase. You can get Pixtr for iOS with a version for Android coming soon.

What We Don't Like

  • Image resolution is poor.

Do you have a wild side? Animal Face is a really cool little app that turns your head into a tiger, panda bear, lion, jaguar or other exotic animal of your choice.

Besides adding a very interesting new look to your selfies, you can even use the app to apply filters, add frames, and use the draw tool to better blend your animal face into the photo. Once you're done, you can share it on all your favorite social networks.
