    The camera makes me look and the mirror makes me look Which one do you believe more for yourself and why?
    The camera makes me look good, the mirror makes me look okay - I like to think other people believe the camera, although I believe the mirror

    Generally I look better in the mirror, 9/10 a photo of me is absolutely disgusting, the other 1/10 I look like a model :lol: But if I make the effort I always look decent in the mirror.

    I always end up cringing at photographs of me. I hate it when photos go up on Facebook of a night out and I get tagged in them.

    Usually photos are what people see of you rather than whats in the mirror. So I think people tend to take the photos as truth of what others look like but believe the mirror when it comes to themselves.

    Mirror for real. I get told I'm relatively pretty, but I am just not photogenic at all :L You also get the opposite where some people look bloody amazing in photos and look not so nice in real life (whether this is the photoshop culture or just a photogenic person, I'm not sure :P).
    Someone above posted that your fluid motions define how pretty you are or not, and I would wholeheartedly agree.

    The mirror. A camera doesn't capture your face in motion. Which is why so many people say to each other, "You look much better in real life..." and why airbrushing on photographs has become so common. They're not always flattering without.

    which is the fairest of them all?

    I trust the mirror more, as I believe it's more accurate.

    When you look in the mirror that is how YOU see yourself but in photos it's the way other people see you if you get me. You face is reversed in the mirror.

    I hate the real me haha

    It's only because you're used to seeing yourself in the mirror a lot more than you're used to seeing photos of yourself.. and mirror image is the opposite of camera pics.

    If you were to ask your friends whether they preferred photos or mirror image of you, they'd pick the photos, because that's what they're familiar with.

    Just a useless thing I picked up in Psychology for you there..

    You're vain. And probably ugly too.
