  • Smile with your eyes - I know, sounds dumb, and there is a slight chance of looking like a psychopathic murderer, but try it. Think of something that makes you happy or want to laugh but not badly enough that you actually will and keep your expression blank. See if that doesn't improve it slightly.

  • Think a sexy thought but at the same time think that you do not want people to suspect that, It should give you a kind of smile that isn't really a smile.

    • Or just give a look that looks like you are about to be murdered 😱

  • I think you're a bit too self conscious. We all think we look awkward on photos and passports. Just be.. awkward, and sod it.

  • Don't avoid it. Have that murderous face. It may get you through the line quicker.

    "Holy crap, I don't want to mess with this chick... she's insane! --- Go ahead ma'am. Have a nice day."

  • Do the george clooney squint.

    Then again it's a passport photo so it'll probably still look bad.

  • I know how that is. My face tends to look bland and boring. I could advise you to wear a bit of makeup. Nothing to heavy, prob a nude eyeliner here, a dash of power there or just mascara and nothing else. It would soften your appearance a bit. Also, the color of your top would help. Try soft colors, not pastel as those may disappear in the background. Try a fuchsia or purple or royal blue. Something that makes you pop. Hope I helped.
