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.
Also! Also, when you see yourself in the mirror you are looking at you face reverse of how a camera pics it up. No face is perfectly symmetrical so you get so used to seeing a mirrored version of your face that when it’s flipped in a picture you subconsciously notice the tiny differences in your face and thus you think you don’t look right.
I have never felt so relieved and beautiful thank you guys
It would be such a great quote, if she even once acted like she had an education
Excuse me? Who the fuck do you think you are because Miss Candice Stewart here was a speech pathology major at Xavier University of Louisiana and apart from not only earning a bachelor’s degree in speech language pathology and audiology and even earned a spot as one of the few people to be mentioned as their notable alumni on their wikipedia page, she was also busy breaking history becoming the first African American woman to win the Miss Louisiana title while also being a pro cheerleader for the NFL, so let me ask you this, while Miss Candice Stewart is busy living a ravishing, successful and happy life, what are you doing other than sitting behind a computer being no where near as successful or clearly educated as her with your D list irrelevant URL, besides getting a blog title that about sums you and your level of education up in a nutshell?
