Science has found the perfect way to take a selfie...

A new study published in Frontiers in Psychology had subjects rate faces for attractiveness, and the results all pointed to one thing...

*Drum roll please*

Head tilting. 

Researchers from the study had subjects rate faces for a "cute and general likeability factor" and it seems the most favorable ratings went to headshots that had been taken with a 30 degree camera tilt.

 By adding a tilt to both the left or right, it would in turn boost one's allure and physical appearance. Interestingly, the study also showed that a higher level of attraction went to faces that were captured at a more subtle 15 degree tilt that showcased the left side.

The tendency to favour the left side over the right side isn't entirely new data, it's been known for quite some time that we prefer to read human facial emotions on the left side of the face, and consequently favour gazing upon its telltale features.
