(WHAS 11)--If you've ever wondered why selfies don't turn out quite the way you planned it turns out there's a good reason.
First, in some instances, your Smartphone is taking your picture reversed which is how you would appear in the mirror.
Also, by nature a selfie is taken at close range.
This leads to some facial features, like your nose or chin being distorted or exaggerated because it is too close to the camera.
So if you need some tips to put your best face forward: good lighting is key. You also want to make sure you are adjusting the angle of your camera.
Remember to look at the lens instead of the camera.
