How I edit my Instagram

One of my favourite things at the moment is Instagram. I love scrolling through my feed and seeing all these pretty pictures of makeup and outfits. I try so hard to keep up a 'theme' but it never really sticks, so I'm always trying something new out. Recently, I have had a lot of people ask me how I edit my Instagram Pictures, so this post is just a quick one to explain how I do it! 
I use 3 apps; one being Instagram (Obviously), the other VSCO and lastly InstaVogue


Firstly, I open up InstaVogue and I use the whitening tool to make the photo more of a white balance rather than a yellowy undertone. I choose the biggest brush and swipe my finger over the image to change the white balance.
I then open the image on VSCO; add the 'G3' portaits filter and change it to number 6. I then change the contrast to +1, straighten the image if I need to, change the saturation to -2, change the tint to +4 and lastly, save the image to my camera roll. 
After I am happy with the editing so far, I open the image on the Instagram editor. I don't really have any specific numbers that I change everything to, but I usually change; the LUX, brightness, contrast, saturation, highlights and shadows, until I am happy with the image.

And that's it!
So simple!
