If I may get shallow for a moment. Ever since I met Molly about a year ago, I have been slightly jealous of her gorgeous looks – her amazing skin, hair, eyes and ability to rock make-up. Seriously she needs to teach classes. But I have met many a gorgeous women in my time and even though they are stunning, they can still take a bad picture.
For a year now I have been waiting to see that one bad picture of Molly so I could say “AHA – see, she is not gorgeous every second!” But it turns out she is, both inside and out.
I am such a shallow woman.
But I look at pictures of me and think “ohemgeee where did all those chins come from, and the bags under the eyes, and the up the nose shots.” I do not have modeling experience and had no idea you have to position your face in a certain way for gorgeousness.
I blame my mother for not knowing this and teaching it to me at an early age. She never taught me about the head tilted down and a bit to the side. The perfect “mug” for pictures.
Molly has known this her whole life and shared her secret with me last week at Blissdom. I am practicing it constantly when I am alone and when I am talking to people.
Pretty sure they don’t think I’m a day over 37.
So I thought I would show you what a difference a little lower and tilt makes…even without make-up…
The Mugging tutorial for a free face lift..
…the “oh shit my iphone camera is turned the wrong way” vantage point…BAD – do not do this. It is scary and I don’t want to see your chins or up your nose. How many people scared themselves this week with their iphone camera. ME.
..the straight on face that I have been doing for 42 years. Come on mother’s, teach your daughters not to do this. I need counseling. How many others have one eye more open than the other. Drives me batty.
..and finally the tilt and lower ..to the left..”Hey baby, I just took 10 years off..” maybe
.and the right…and when you tilt down your hair magically covers your wrinkles…
It’s brilliant. You will thank me, and Molly.
Now I may never have Molly’s gorgeous eyes or skin..but look mom, only ONE chin!
