    I thought maybe this would fit under this category the best. What are some tips for being more photogenic? Any examples of those who are better in video versus photos? Any explanations for this phenomenon?

    Just thought of this but definitely clear skin helps a lot, it can make a huge difference in how you photograph regardless of how attractive you are. anyone have any other tips that are reachable for us average regular people :)

    Being skinny gives you a pretty substantial halo boost. If you're in a group photo with average sized people, viewers' eyes are instantly drawn to you. Being lean also gives you more defined facial features overall.

    And then of course practice makes perfect. When I'm bored (i.e. procrastinating) I'll switch between slowmotion video and the classic snapchat timer mode. It's also a confidence boost if you put a filter on, just to make posing less awkward in the beginning.

    Am not a fan of Bella Hadid but IMO she’s a good example of someone who looks better in motion/videos vs in still images.

    I think the actress Phoebe Tonkin is such a good example of this. She's stunning on film but less so in still images.

    practise in front of the mirror, Marilyn Monroe did this all the time and it truly makes a difference

    Eyebrows are so important for this, cleanly groomed and filled but not overpowering brows can make someone look significantly better when being photographed.

    Just wanted to add I hate how different I look in pictures sometimes. I do not know what it is maybe because I have wide cheeks but depending on the angle and if the person takes a good photo I go down a whole tier.

    Like if my friend takes my photo she knows how to make me look good and I love it but in random family photos I look so average sometimes

    Wide faces are often b tier, do you chew gum and overwork your jaw muscle? this could make you look a little flat. Maybe you are a good candidate for masseter botox? 3/4 angle is usually best for you I'm guessing? This is v common for wide faces.
