How to choose your best side

January 29, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

You’ve probably heard people asking for their photos to be taken showing their “good side.” So does everyone have a “good side” and if so how do you find out which side it is?

Firstly, not everyone has a good side, if you have a symmetrical face, chances are you won’t have a preference for either your left or your right side. However, if your face is not symmetrical, there are a few things you can look out for to decide on your “better side.” This involves getting a mirror out and giving your face a good long look.

  1. Eyebrows. Do you prefer one eyebrow over the other?

  2. Brow-bone. Is one brow bone more defined?

  3. Eyes. Is one eye more turned up (and so looks a bit happier!) than the other?

  4. Mouth. When your face is at rest, does one side of your mouth turn up more than the other?

  5. Jaw. Is one side of your jaw more defined than the other?

  6. Hair. Do you part your hair to one side resulting in this side of your face being more exposed and better lit?

All of these things may point you in the direction of your better side.

For me, I prefer my left eyebrow to my right, my brow bones and eyes and jaw line are pretty much the same on both sides (as far as I can tell), my mouth seems to lift more on my left side and my parting is also on my left side which means the left side of my face is more exposed. So…. my best side seems to be my left!
