From dances to workouts to recipes, Tiktok is a platform known for its variety in content. Now, there’s a new Tiktok trend going on which shows you “what you really look like.”

According to this trend, the front camera distorts your facial features because the camera is close to your face. As a result, your selfies become inaccurate. So to see “what you really look like,” you should position your phone at a certain distance from your face and use the face zoom effect.
There is indeed a difference in the two ways of taking selfies. Makeup artist Eleanor Barnes (@babysnitchery on Tiktok) shows this in her video:

Likewise, YouTuber James Charles has also tweeted about this hack, saying he’s never going taking a closeup photo again.
