The duck face is done. Here's your new selfie face.
LET THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER PULLED A DUCK FACE FOR A PHOTO CAST THE FIRST SMARTPHONE.
Maybe even you have perfectly mastered the facial expression where you purse your lips and make your mouth look like a heart (or more accurately, a duck’s beak). Here’s some good news for people who steer clear of those fake pouty mouths: the Etiquette Brigade has officially banned the duck face.
Make room for the “fish gape” that was all over celebrity lips at Paris Fashion Week – an open-mouthed pose. But don’t run away screaming. It’s going to be alright.
Here’s how to do it:
#1 Open your mouth slightly (we said slightly) so that just teeny bit of your teeth are showing.
#2 Press your tongue up against the palate to tighten your skin a tad and accentuate the corners of your jaw. Experts say this technique is also really great for hiding a double chin. (A double what? I have no idea what you’re talking about…)
#3 Then breathe in to hollow out your cheeks a little.
Perfect. Don’t move.
If your friends call you Nemo, we suggest changing techniques. If your friends call you Flipper, we suggest changing friends.
