Goodbye to the days of over-exaggerated puckered lips, because the 'duck face' is so yesterday.
The new face that's taking over the selfie? The fish gape.
There's no doubt you've been endlessly scrolling Instagram and have seen one of your favourite celebs performing the fish gape. Originating from underwater creatures with gills who seem to gape for air nonetheless, this pose is all about a relaxed look. Let's be real -- the duck face was too dramatic and intense. The updated fish gape looks a bit more sultry, as if you're staring at a photo of Ryan Gosling.
Here's how to take the perfect fish gape photo, according to five selfie queens:
1. Look wide-eyed right into the soul of the camera
2. Concave cheeks by sucking them in
3. Pout lips
4. Subtly open mouth, just enough to part lips
5. Relax your jaw and let a little bit of teeth show
And there you have it! The definitive fish gape. Now go snap some selfies.
