Do You Have a "Good" Side?

Do You Have a "Good" Side?


Long before the days of rampant rhinoplasty, Hollywood actresses used to demand that they be photographed only from certain angles. Even today, some stars, like Dita Von Teese, seem to favor one side over the other. That's because most people don't have perfectly symmetrical faces, and pictures often highlight facial quirks that you wouldn't notice in person. (You'd never pick up on my crooked nose in person, but in photos, I might as well be Gonzo the Great.) Do you favor one side or the other, or is it not a big deal to you?

I prefer my right side, but I photograph with both, although my right sided pictures look better.

My right eye doesn't open as wide as my left so my left side looks more awake! That said, I have been working on my right eye (lid) and am more aware to keep it open so it doesn't droop. Most girls would just have botox but with a little effort I think it looks almost as good as my "good" eye! (freaky, I know).

Left side, but I'll do the right if I must. I think my nose looks better from the left.

mine's left too... i don't notice a difference except my nose, it leans slightly to the right so it looks smaller and better shaped from the left :^)

My left side is my good side. I think I have a horribly asymetrical face.

Haha. My face is fairly symmetrical but for some reason, I think my left side probably looks better in pictures. Also, you wouldn't notice it in real life but in pictures I've noticed that one of my eyes looks smaller than the other! It's really annoying! HAHA.

Right side. When I was younger, it was my left (I'm also legt-handed), but growing up, it started to look weird.

I don't know why but my right eye is always half closed in photos unless I turn to the left so that my right eye is closest to the camera. Then it always looks open. Don't ask me why, it seems backwards.

Either side, straight on, I really don't care. I don't look like myself in photographs. I photograph much better than I look in person it's weird, even my driver's license photos look good.

My left side is definitely better.

Absolutely. I like my face straight on and my left.... but I look like a completely different person from the right side! I'm always dodging being in this position on photos!

I have noticed that my face is symmetrical. It's weird. Each side of my face looks completely the same. We did something in college that experimented with seeing how symmetrical your face/body is. But then again, it never occurred to me to care.
