then i take a photo with iphone 5 at the mirror, and my face gets legit warped, asymmetry is magnified and i look 'off' completely

If you're ugly with lens distortion it just means you are average

Most GL people still look good with it

good looking people have zygos, and that's simply unfixable without implants. there needs to be zygoplasty where they cut it and screw it in place, and then implant bone material from the hips to make it flush.

I've heard around 50mm tends to look best when shooting faces, but idk i imagine higher is better. You want to look like you have a broad skull.

Mirrors arent a lens, they should have no distortion. The eye however is a lens, but it's not a fixed diameter. The ciliary muscle changes the shape of the lens in the eye so there are varying degrees of distortion.

it's not a cope.m, yes.

Of course Gandy&Co. look good in the smartphone cameras, but they always look worse. That's the key. Everyone becomes worse looking.

And mirrors can fool you sometimes as well. If it's not an entirely flat surface, morphing of proportions WILL happen.
