1. Squinting Your Eyes
Just like the fox eye trend, squinting your eyes will make you look more flirty, feminine, and younger. When taking a photo of yourself, slightly narrow your eyes and make a tiny smile without forcing everything too much.
This hack makes your cheekbones a lot more prominent and make your face look younger.

2. Flipping the hair on one side
While most people can agree that a middle part is more flattering for them, posing with your hair on the right side of your head helps in defining your jawline and will give you a sexy fresh look. This frames your face and at the same time, you can showcase your gorgeous locks.
The “smize” was first introduced by Tyra Banks in the America’s Next Top Modelas she teaches models exactly how to pose for the camera. This is also used by Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, in which she describes doing the pose as "Think murder."
To smize, smile using your eyes by squinting, all without moving your lips.
4. Press your tongue against your palate
This trick helps in raising your cheekbones and making your face more defined. Say goodbye to contour with this trick!
5. Shoot photos from above
Double chins are our enemy, and while they may be cute (sometimes), they don't really look flattering in any photo at all. Shoot your selfies from above so that no bad lighting or extra chins will ruin the photo for you!
6. Pursing your lips
Think duck lips, but make it more subtle. Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Hilary Duff have already mastered this technique, so if you want more inspo, you know where to look!
This can be done by moving your nose muscles downward, making your upper lip poutier and overall make it bigger.
7. Half laugh half smile technique
If you think you're not fit for the pursed lips technique, then go try this laugh-smile trick! It's just simply smiling with your mouth slightly open, along with your eyes squinting.
This will make you look younger and adorable, and it will make you look like you're just having fun!
8. Go left
A lot of celebrities swear by the fact that the left side is always the best side. According to Wake Forest University, the left side of our face is more subtle, expressive, and more balanced compare to the right side.
If you think this works, then go for it!
9. The chin-down trick
This is like the "shoot photos from above" trick, as this one also makes you more feminine and flirty. Tilt you head down slightly just enough to not give you a double chin, and see your jawline appear more defined.
This trick also makes your eyes look bigger, so you can achieve the "doe eye" effect with this one.
10. Look away from the camera
Looking away from the camera makes you look more natural and spontaneous. It's a great tip for those camera shy people out there without hiding their face!
These tips and tricks are not a universal kind of thing, though, so be sure to do the trial and error process to see which are the ones that work best for you! Remember, we are all perfect in our own ways, so don't be frustrated when a lot of these don't seem to do the job well.
