Some people really manage to look amazing and polished in every photo. It's so unfair. But so-called photogenic people come in all shapes and sizes — and they all have a secret. And perhaps that secret is a hairline editor app.

We can teach you all the tips on how to take a good selfie and how to get your hair ready for photos, or how to use a hair color app, but the secret to being photogenic is all about proportions. An odd angle or some bad lighting can make parts of your face look a little bit funky. You won't look terrible, just a little awkward.

If you've ever met someone who is totally gorgeous but looks awful in pictures, you'll know what I'm talking about. It's because the proportions of their face look odd through a camera lens, even if they're totally stunning IRL.

The best way to fix that and make sure you look great in every photo is to just touch up the bits that look weird when you use a camera. This way, you can bring focus to your best features.

One of the most obvious ways to do this is to bring your hairline down. A large forehead can distract and draw attention away from your eyes, so if your hair is quite far back, people focus on the wrong part of your face, and you look out of proportion.

By slightly altering your hairline, you can change all the proportions on your face and become the most photogenic person you know.

Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Open your selfie in Facetune and select the Reshape function from the bottom bar.

Step 2: From the Reshape menu, select the Reshape function and gently brush your fingers from your hairline down toward your eyebrows to lower your hairline.

Step 3: Then select the Refine function to blend and smooth your hairline into a natural shape.

Step 4: If you feel the need to increase your hair's volume or amount for it to look natural, you can use the Resize option in your hair to boost your hair.

Bonus Step: If you feel like you can't lower your hairline anymore but still want to shrink your forehead, select the Face function, then the Eyebrows function to raise your eyebrows and increase their size.

Lowering your hairline can bring more attention to your eyes and smile, and bring your face back into proportion.
