How to look more attractive in the photo: know scientists

Scientists from Australia, USA and Canada have developed scientifically based rules for a successful photo shoot. Now your pictures will be much more attractive!

1. The left half of the face is more attractive than the right

Turning your left side towards the lens will make you look your best in the photo. When analyzing several hundred photographs, scientists proved that the survey participants found "left-sided" portraits more attractive than "right-sided" ones. This is no coincidence: our faces are asymmetrical, and each half of our face is controlled by the opposite cerebral hemisphere. The right hemisphere, which is responsible for the emotional sphere, controls the left side of the face, due to which facial expressions on the left side are more expressive than on the right.

2. A glass of wine spoils the picture

The presence of alcohol in the frame makes the character less attractive. Without naming the purpose of the experiment, a group of people of different ages was asked to choose which photo they like more, and were shown photographs of the same people, taken with and without alcohol in the frame. The overwhelming majority found "non-alcoholic" photographs prettier.

3. Dilate your pupils

This is not a joke: the wider your pupils in the photo, the more attractive your face appears. So either close your eyes before taking the photo, or tweak the image in Photoshop (don't overdo it!).

4. Smile with restraint

A soft half-smile evokes a lot of sympathy compared to a serious face, but surprisingly compared to a wide smile too!

5. Look into the distance

Looking straight into the camera makes the photo look deliberate, and the person looking at it will notice more flaws than if your gaze is directed somewhere outside the lens. Such a picture seems random, and therefore more attractive.

6. Have a glass of wine

Scientists photographed the same people completely sober, after a glass of wine and after several glasses. In one hundred percent of cases, people considered the most successful photographs to be those that were taken after one glass.

7. Be surprised

The most pleasant mimicry was not a smile! Most of the respondents named the photographs in which people look pleasantly surprised as attractive and evoking positive emotions. Slightly raised eyebrows, wide eyes, open mouth and keen interest in the gaze - this is the secret of success!
