Face it, the duckface is here to stay. In fact, it has become quite the norm when posing for photos. In a world where “selfie” is the word of the year, how can anyone be surprised by the abundance of puckered up lips?
According to Urban Dictionary, the “duckface” can be defined as:
A term used to describe the face made if you push your lips together in a combination of a pout and a pucker, giving the impression you have larger cheekbones and bigger lips.
However, not everyone thinks that this popular pose deserves all the glory. In fact, according to a psychology study posted on Antiduckface.com (yes, this website exists), a duckface actually has underlying connotations. The study states:
People who take photos of themselves to advance the lip including psychological disorders. The point is, a photo with this pose shows a lack of confidence and fear with a natural expression does not look attractive. With the duck face pose, face is slightly obscured shortage but that does not mean to be more charming.
Ouch! We do not know about all that. All that we know is that we simply can’t get enough of the puckered up, pouty and pursed lips.
