Just so everybody knows, the mirror is actually more reliable than the camera. Even though people say “the camera never lies”, it distorts your photographs a little bit. It has to turn a 3d image (you in real life) to a 2d image (a photograph) and consequently skews the proportions a little bit.
Also, “photogenic” is a real thing. Certain faces photograph well and others don’t. It’s all down the angles, proportions and size of your features.
Have you ever seen someone stunning who looks great in professional photographs and not in candids? Yeah, that’s because there’s a huge difference between a professional and an amateur. Professionals know how to minimise the issues cameras have. Lighting, angles and even the distance you are away from the camera plays a part (the amount of distortion varies depending on how close you are).
TL;DR if you think you look great in the mirror but not in the photo, trust the mirror. You look great!
NOT ONLY THAT, but when you look in a mirror, you’re seeing your face in motion, how others would see it. In a photograph, you’re still, and it can make small flaws and the like seem a lot more prominent, despite them being quite minuscule in person.

This is so great you can see her tummy cellulite and she looks so fab as unairbrushed I’m pleased to see this
it’s actually so much sexier to see her uneven skin tone and little uneven areas of tone just like real people! and damn just look at that flawless face
someone told me the other day this is one of the first photos officially released by a celebrity that was not airbrushed
one thing i loved about tropico was that you could tell lana’s body was so real, she didn’t photoshop or airbrush herself to hell and i thought that was really great.

I made a design for a bottle of gin based on the song ‘Sorrow’ by The National. I love this song and its lyrics and I’ve wanted to do some work based on it for a while. One day I had this idea and had to execute it.
oh my :o
