Sparrow Face


Chirp, chirp!

If you're a selfie addict (and who isn't?), you should know that there's a popular new pose that's popping up all over our Instagram feed—and no, it is not the duckface!

It's actually called the sparrow face, and it's far more flattering and feminine than the exaggerated pout made famous by celebs like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in the past.

Not surprisingly, the sparrow face is already a hit among countless celebs like Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Ashley Tisdale, Lindsay Lohan and Cara Delevingne—and for good reason!

The come-hither look is sexy and seductive, but not overtly so, not to mention that it plays up two alluring features every woman wants to emphasize: Mesmerizing eyes and pouty lips are the keys to a successful selfie, after all!

We should also point out that the sparrow face also looks slightly more natural and endearing than the duckface, which is always a plus when snapping your own glorified pic in broad daylight while strangers are staring from afar. 

So how exactly do you pull off the sparrow face?

A BuzzFeed article explains that the expression is created when one opens her eyes wide and puckers her lips like a baby bird waiting to be fed.

Easy enough!

In short, the sparrow face is the perfect pose to show off that fabulous new shade of holiday lipstick, or prove just how gorgeous your peepers are when accentuated to their fullest.

But remember, practice makes perfect, ladies.

Try this one at home with a few test shots before you go full force and upload it for your followers.
