Do it for the 'gram!

A quick Google search will reveal thousands of tips and tricks to getting the perfect Instagram post — including which angle to snap your photo from, which filters to use (and which to avoid) and when it's appropriate to use song lyrics as a caption (the answer is never).

But thanks to Erin and Sara Foster, stars of VH1's Barely Famous, you can throw all that out the window and simply use their one, tried-and-true pro-tip: Just fake it. 

In collaboration with, the funny ladies released a new video in which they put this tip to the test for every 'grammable moment of your life, including an #OOTD post, an #IWokeUpLikeThis post or the crowd-favorite, #Spon paid ad posts. 

The stylish sisters also curated some of their favorite Instagrammable pieces from Gilt, which are sure to get you all the double taps. Because who can resist "liking" a photo when it includes an Oscar de la Renta Tortoise Backgammon set? As Erin puts it, "When someone asks you what you do in your spare time, it's important to lie. You obviously do crossword puzzles and play backgammon — not search the Internet for unflattering celeb photos ... never."
