From duckface to fish gape, to the less popular sparrowface, 2016 sees a new selfie pose: Fingermouthing. While it sounds a tad perverted, it is actually just dangling your fingers near your mouth for a relaxed, careless lookâ€•as if you’ve been caught unaware by the camera.
The proponent of this trending pose is the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie. In an interview, she tells Elle UK that the pose stems from her insecurity about her lips. The celebrity had been receiving a lot of backlash from it because she had lip fillers.
While Kylie’s reason does not explain the whole picture, other celebs had been getting in on the trend because it seems like a natural but seductive way to pose and to frame your face. Take cues from stylegrammer Kristen Hancher, celebrities Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Vanessa Hudgens.
Indeed, as Cher taught us, “Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good.”
