  • I think the camera is better prospective on it :) but then again, it's all in your own prospective on if you are pretty or not. for me that depends on my mood more than anything LOL

  • Ugh, well I look best in a mirror, so I HOPE that's the more truthful option, lol. I always look like an idiot in pictures, it never fails. Maybe I'm just too hard on myself though, who knows, haha.

  • I have to say camera just because mirrors can be deceiving (in the way they're made), but then again, the camera can be deceiving too, depending on the angle.

    Not to sound vain, but I've been told many times how pretty I am, etc., in person, but I am not photogenic at all. If I get a good photo taken of me, I want to blow it up to poster size!

    I also HATE how I look ON camera! I look so bad on tape.

  • The camera for me. I can focus on the good or bad parts in the mirror, but the camera sees all!

  • Not everyone is Photogentic and some people who are beautiful don't always take good photos. It's really all based on illusions more then anything. The right angle,lighting and makeup can help a great deal.

  • i tend to trust whichever one makes me look best that day (usually the mirror). With a photo you can sit and agonize over it for hours, whereas you don't have that with a mirror.

  • I say the mirror, when i have my pic taken i can always see a scar under my eye. It makes me feel bad but then everyone says you can't notice.
