Ever since the first picture was snapped, man and woman have been thinking about ways to make themselves look more attractive in photos. If you’re not happy about the way you look, there are always ways of making yourself look more appealing, with a body position or a filter. It’s what everybody does and when you think about it, it’s OK, but there is such a fine line between looking fine and looking completely unattractive while trying to be sexy. It’s much easier to throw in a filter, then work on accepting and loving yourself. If there’s something about you that you don’t quite like, then chances are that you already know a few tricks to make you look more attractive in photos. Here are 10 of our tricks, hope you enjoy!

10. Find Your Good Side

We all have a good side and a bad side. People’s faces are not symmetrical and there is a side that is better looking than the other. Find it and from that point on, you know how to place yourself in photographs to look more attractive. It sounds simple, but it really isn’t.

9. Pouting Lips


A tricky tip, but if done properly, it works and makes people look more attractive in photos. As is the case with other tricks the secret here is to not exaggerate it. A small pout, one that is barely recognizable, will make your lips appear bigger and more defined (do it if you think your lips need to appear bigger and more defined).

8. Squinching


Squinching is like squinting, but a lot less obvious. You just close your eyes a bit and draw the corners of your eyes down, to give you a more mysterious and smoldering look. If you take a look in the mirror and try squinching, you’ll notice that there really is a difference and you really do look better. But be careful and not overdo it, or you’ll end up squinting and looking like you’re half blind and trying to read the menu.

7. Fake it Till You Make It

You don’t have to actually be attractive to look attractive in photos. You fake it and in the end people won’t know the difference. Act like you’ve got the whole world at your feet and that confidence will transfer through photos. Also, if you’re in a crappy mood when you’re taking a picture, try smiling even if you don’t feel like it. Faking it will help you just a tiny bit.

6. Practice in Front of a Mirror


It may seem weird, but you know what they say, practice makes perfect. Grab yourself a mirror and practice your smile and stare. Once you find a nice and satisfactory posture and smile, work them! Just make sure you do all this while you’re alone in the room, you will look like a little narcissist!

5. Filters


Instagram revolutionized the way people take and share photos. In less than a minute, a normal and unflattering picture could turn into a work of art through a simple filter. Filters will make pretty much anyone look like a better looking version of themselves, so try that and see if it satisfies you.

4. Find Inspiration


If you don’t like how you look in photos, maybe you should find an inspiration and allow them to guide your journey in photographs. For example, Angelina, one of the most beautiful persons on Earth, always plays the mysterious card when she’s being photographed. She’s not dorky or nerdy, but elegant and sleek. Jennifer Lawrence, on the other hand, is equally gorgeous, but also dorky in photos. Who would you like to emulate?

3. Smile

2. Study Unattractive Pictures of Yourself

One of the best tricks to make you look more attractive in photos is to study unattractive photos of yourself. Discover what made them unattractive. What don’t you like about them or about your face? Can you do something to change that, like adopt a new posture or smile more? Have an honest conversation with yourself and you’ll manage to answer a lot of your questions.

1. Photoshop


When all else fails, you can always turn to Photoshop to make you look better in photos. If you’re just tweaking a bit, then you’re OK, but don’t make any big changes to your face and body, you’re deceiving people and when they find out, they won’t like it. The thing with Photoshop is that it’s not so easy to use, so if you’re planning to start learning how to use it, you could very well make a career out of it.
