Are cameras more accurate than mirrors?
A mirror image is called a mirror image because it reverses things from left to right. You usually see a mirror image of yourself. In contrast, if you look at a normal camera photo, you see yourself as another person would see you. Mirrors are much more accurate than camera images.
Should you trust a mirror or camera?

The front camera is a more wide angle camera than the back. A wide angle lens enlarges the foreground and diminishes the background. That’s why people’s noses look comically large with a shorter focal length lens (wide angle).
Why do you look bad in front camera?
Camera lenses warp faces differently depending on the focal length. Most phone cameras are around 5mm, and the most accurate representation of a face is when the lens is around 100mm focal length, so no where close. That is why you think you look ugly in photos, even though I assure you, you are not.
Is Snapchat selfie accurate?
Snapchat photos are in the same direction as your mirror which is what you’re used to seeing. Your phone’s regular camera makes the picture look flipped, which looks completely off to what you’re used to seeing yourself look like. The regular camera actually shows you what you look like to other people.
Do cameras make your face look uneven?
Any photograph of your face taken from less than a few feet away will distort your features, due to the effects of perspective at close range. There is no way around this; it’s a basic principle of photography. The only way to avoid it is to take the picture with the camera further away.
