NEW YORK--()--To celebrate National Selfie Day, Perfect Corp. has launched exclusive beauty looks, photo frames and fun filters for 450 million users around the world to snap their own creative selfie. In honor of the millennial-inspired “holiday,” YouCam has released the Selfie Nation Gallery featuring user-generated pictures taken with their apps. Over 30 million selfies are taken daily and over 800 million minutes spent every month taking photos with YouCam Apps. That’s almost twice as many more minutes than last year.

Perfect Corp. and CyberLink have conducted a joint YouGov survey revealing some interesting selfie trends of the moment. The survey shows 62% of Americans and two-thirds of millennials take between 3 and 25 selfies before sharing one to social media. Nearly one in five American selfie takers say they’ve snapped a selfie together with a celebrity. On the topic of embarrassing selfie taking locations, 51% of Americans admit to have taken a selfie in the bathroom mirror. Check out the full selfie insights infographic.

“We are excited to see the shocking growth in YouCam’s selfie takers over the last three years,” says Perfect Corp. CEO Alice Chang. “We continue to strive to deliver the best user experience and help selfie lovers around the world express themselves with a single tap on their mobile device.”

As the global selfie authority, the team at Perfect Corp. created the Selfie Nation handbook earlier this year with detailed insights on twelve different personas that embody the different selfie-taking styles ranging from the Dare Devil to the Animal Lover and the Squad selfie-taker. For more information and selfie statistics, please refer to YouCam’s Selfie Nation handbook.

To encourage everyone to join in the excitement of National Selfie Day, YouCam curated a collection of most popular in-app beauty looks of 2017 including Emma Stone’s Oscars glamour, a striking style created by celebrity makeup artist Robin Black, and a classic pink lip that looks good on everyone.
