Today's beauty secret: How to eliminate those extra chins
Tuesday, October 28, 2008

In yesterday's blog I complained of my extra chins I'd noticed in photographs of myself taken during book tour. Apparently there is an antidote! Here's what one of my Georgia readers emailed me:

"...It's clear you need a lesson on how to do the "vulture". When having your picture taken--simply jut your chin way out with your mouth slightly open and your tongue on the roof of your mouth. It's important to also hold your shoulders back as far as possible. Practice in front of a mirror. It should eliminate any chins. If it doesn't, it's time to lay off of the truck brownies."

Whew! At least he didn't say "lay off the gin."

Consider the 3/4 face pose, an old theatrical headshot trick. You don't want to be caught straight-on if you can help it, and you're at a disadvantage because you're taller than most people holding the camera. This puts your chin in the spotlight. The 3/4 pose should put the jaw bone, not the chin, in the spotlight.
