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


phew thankfully i look good in both

"The Chart"
An idea for a drawing I’ve had for a long time now. Basically it comes from all of my ideas about what I’d have to do in order to meet the modern day standards of feminine beauty — and how these standards are literally impossible to meet. It’s like fitting into a perfect mold, and if you don’t fit it, you aren’t as beautiful as you could be. Big eyes, but a small nose, and then big lips. A big chest, and then a small waist, and then a big butt. Big, small, big, small. In the right places, that is. When in reality we’re all different sizes and colors and shapes in all different places. Oh, and if you’re caved under societal pressure to meet these standards and done anything to artificially enhance your appearance, ie, breast augmentation, fake tanning, bleaching your hair — you’ll probably be called out and put down for it. So you’re basically stuck.
