How To Look Your Very Best In Photos
Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself that somehow managed to ruin your entire day?! That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I think we could all use a little help when it comes to looking good in pictures. Some of us get labeled as being “photogenic” (and others not so much), but I think a lot of that has to do with how you react to the camera. We all get caught in front of those flashing lights now and again, and when we do, here are some tips on how to look your very best!
1.The Slimming Stance
How you stand can instantly add or subtract 10+ pounds. If you stand with your hips shoulder-width apart, your weight on your back foot, and your front leg slightly bent, you’ll create an instant slimming effect! For group photos, it also helps to place yourself somewhere in the middle– avoid standing on the ends.

2. Don’t Square Your Body
It makes sense. Standing straight into the camera can make you look frumpy. Standing at a 3/4 turn or even with your body to the side is much more flattering, especially if you’re with a group of people; it cuts your size in almost half.

3. Forehead Forward, Chin Down
If there is anything you can do to be more photogenic, do this!! Even if you don’t have a double chin to hide, it accentuates your jaw line. It is also suggested that you squint your eyes slightly. Hop on over to Lifehacker for more information, including a video.
