Squinting is the single most powerful way to save yourself from another bad photo. If confidence and sexiness are what you're going for, then say no more! The squint is for you. Imagine you're trying to read a sign from farrrr away then HOLD THAT! DON'T MOVE! You've just learned the celebrity secret weapon.

The key is to try only moving your lower lids. When done correctly, you should feel a slight pressure under your eyes. Practice this in the mirror by isolating the movement without engaging your eyebrows. Once you get the hang of it, try combining it with different expressions and see what you can come up with.

Here are some famous examples:

 

 

1. Chris Pratt
