Tyra Banks has listed her ''smize'' as a top tip for taking the perfect selfie.

The 'America's Next Top Model' host shared her secrets for getting the perfect snap, including the ''smile with your eyes'' technique which she is famous for.

Tyra revealed: ''For those of you who may not be aware, smize is short for smiling with your eyes.

''To pull off a smize, you'll need to: squint, relax both your lips and eyebrows and then pretend as if a string is pulling up your face from above.''

However, before you are ready to smize, Tyra suggested titling your head back ensuring you use your ''best side''.

She the Femail section of MailOnline: ''It all starts with the classic head tilt. Lead with your best side and work it.''

The TV-presenter-and-model also insisted that your hair should be pushed away from the neck area to ''flaunt it''.

She advised: ''Brush hair away from your neck onto the side you're leaning in towards, helping to leave your gorgeous neck bare. If you've got it, flaunt it!'

She then suggested rather than taking a photo from high up, which people do to make themselves appear skinnier, it's better to take shots from below because it will ''accentuate'' your neck.

She added: ''Taking your selfie from above appears to squash your neck. Whereas holding your phone slightly below helps to accentuate the length of your beautiful neck.''
