In the words of Tyra Banks, you should always “find your light” when taking a photo — especially a selfie. While this is true, what happens when there’s literally no light present?

In the event of this unfortunate occurrence and to ensure that you’re always selfie-ready at a moment’s notice, there are tons of light-up selfie phone cases on the market that will give you that ring light glow straight from your palm.

Light-up selfie phone cases are nothing new, but in recent years, they’ve received a boost in the features department with most options featuring both front and rear illuminators. This ensures that the subject is picture-perfect from both the front-facing camera angle and the rear camera angle.

Specifically, LuMee, one of the pioneers in the selfie light-up phone case craze, has further revolutionized its model with its Case-Mate collaboration with the original selfie queen Paris Hilton.

Included in this LuMee x Paris Hilton Holographic collection is the Duo iPhone case, which features the brand’s iconic front and back-facing, professional quality, LED lighting. Also, just like a standard ring light, it has a built-in adjustable dimmer so that you can tweak the brightness to your liking.

While this premium option is currently available on Amazon for $46 and $70 at Case-Mate, there are other base-level options on Amazon that shoppers love. In fact, they retail for as low as $15.

Check out five of the best light-up selfie phone cases below.
