This happens especially when a picture is taken of me. I don't know what it is about pictures, but I swear mine always turn out awful, especially when it's not me taking them, lol. But a lot of times, if it's just my reflection in the mirror, I'm fine with my looks, and occasionally in certain lighting, I feel even better about them.
I don't quite know how to feel I guess... Anyone feel the same way? I know a good looking person when I see one, and sometimes I just don't feel like I quite live up... No idea, ha.

Everyone has days like that. It's one of the reasons I shy away form face time, photos, etc. of myself. There are days where I look and feel fantastic, get compliments from guys and girls alike, and am just happy with the universe and my place in it. On a few of those days, someone took a picture and I looked SO bad in them. (Okay, not horrible by general human standards, but not how I envisioned myself at all.) Some people are just not photogenic. It has nothing to do with specific features or flaws on your face, with whether you're fat or thin, etc. Your soul just doesn't always come out in a picture when you pose for it.
A cousin of mine REALLY knows how to take pictures. She just BEAMS into the lens and the picture looks like she is staring right at you and calling you to join her. WOW. A perfect image every time.
A guy painted my portrait one time. He asked me to sit for him, so I did. I didn't realize why he'd said that until after I saw the portrait. He'd taken a few preliminary photos, but was really frustrated with them and I didn't know why. In the painting he was able to capture my grin. In the photos he was only able to capture my "picture day smile." Go figure, but in the portrait I was...beautiful.
What I'm saying is that "Good Looking" is relative to WHO IS LOOKING and how you are feeling as they look. You're FINE. You're simply human...so there will be "pretty" days and "not pretty" days, just like the rest of us. Even Megan Fox isn't happy with herself on some days.
