I want to stay anon so I’m not sure if this is the right forum.

But I took a professional picture for my passport and the minute I seen it, i’m just so insecure now.

Like, I look like a man. My face looks wide, jaw looks huge and my eyes look really small. It might sound like i’m exaggerating it, but it looks so bad.

My mom was like ‘you should’ve asked the guy to take it again’ but literally, it isn’t the picture. It’s my face. And like i’m just so insecure wtf.

I don’t think i’m looking for advice on what to do because i’m stuck with this face, but just a small rant.

If you're feeling that insecure you can just have it taken again but realistically how many people are actually going to see it?

Passport photos aren't how someone else will see you, trust me mine looks so much more different to me that my friends pointed it out lol
I bet you look much better in real life
Don't worry it's just for travel not many people will see it and those that do will have seen thousands of passport photos
You can re take it if it really worries you

Yeah pretty much everyone secretly hates their passport photo, you're fine honestly

I was watching them photoshop my photo too (like airbrushing spots and stuff) and it makes it even more weird and unnatural, it's like they're designed to make you feel bad lol

My passport picture is deffo the worst photo of myself, I look so depressed and sad on it,
I didn't even put any male up I just look tired. Honesty don't worry about it, we can't all look like Kim K, you're still beautiful even if people make you feel differently, can still change it in few years 😅.

lol my passport photo looks like a sociopath, my friends told me that's because the camera lens they used were not that good and the staff are definitely not great photographers who can capture the right expressions

My passport picture looks fine but my uni ID card... oh my days. I don’t look ugly, I look dim or half-asleep or something. I hate showing it to people.

Meh, if I looked merely ugly on it, I’d be happier. My face looks sort of contorted somehow - super unnatural.

Eh, We all look awful in our passport photos lol. As someone who's been suffering with body dysmorphia (who also hates my own face), all I can say is just accept the fact that it doesn't matter as much as you might think, and I'm sure you look fine (if not good but I'm not tryna catch a case)

That's the whole point of a passport picture. If you look good in it you're doing it wrong.

My passport has a pic of my inner tormented soul. In fact my every government ID has that kind of pic. They use an SLR camera to take such pics. I guess their camera has an extra setting to take such hell-born pics.
