1. Figure out which is your best side

This sounds corny, but your face isn't symmetrical, and one side is going to be the pretty sister. Ask a friend, or selfie, selfie, selfie until you find it.

2. Smise.

AKA smiling with your eyes.

The easiest way to do this is think of a really happy memory while making eye contact with the photographer.

3. Squinch.

Yep, another eye smile, but this time a sultry one. It involves tightening the lower eyelid whilst lowering the top eyelid slightly as if to mimic a natural imma-bout-to-laugh smile.

4. Instead of saying "cheese"...

...say "prune!"

The "PR" sound purses the lips; the "OOH" will relax your mouth.

5. Look engaged, not dead behind the eyes.

The above tip is just the start. You want to be looking out at whoever is looking at this photo. So aim your smile and pose at the photo-taker. Make eye contact with them as they snap. Don't stare off in to the distance.

6. Your face look bored? Think about something you love.

Actually, maybe not pizza – unless you want a Homer Simpson-esque drool trail. If you want a sexy smile, think about the best kiss you've ever had. Trust us on this one.

7. If you're paranoid about your round face, turn your head at an angle.

The light will bounce off your cheekbones. DON'T do a profile pose if you're worried about a double chin.

8. Find your light.

Seriously, you're like one of those flowers stuck in the shadows reaching for LIFE.

9. RARELY shoot from below.

Because, you might look like a scary giant. Instead, get the photographer to be slightly above you so that you're looking up at the camera.

10. "Sparrow face" smile if you want to look cute.

Think wide eyes and slightly open mouth or a mini pout as if you're waiting for a worm.

11. Smile with your teeth slightly parted and you'll look more sincere.

12. Practise. Seriously.

Humans aren't born knowing how to look natural in front of a camera. They're made. They've practised. And they've hit that 10,000 hours mark.
