Forget The Duck Face, The Faux-Surprised Face Is The New Selfie Trend (Photos)


We've all seen our fair share of eye roll-inducing duck faces as we scroll through Instagram.

If one thing is certain, there's nothing cute about pursing your lips and staring at your iPhone camera as you attempt to capture the perfect duck face in the mirror.

Thankfully, this pose has gotten a pretty bad rap after it became a go-to look for all the basics out there.

So, it's safe to say days of the duck face have finally died and no one would be caught dead uploading another selfie like that to Instagram.

But if the duck face is gone, what are selfie snappers supposed to do?

Well, smiling like a normal person is obviously out of the question, so it's been replaced with a new pose: the faux-surprised face.

It's not hard to master this look. All you have to do is pretend you've just realized there's a killer lurking behind the shower curtain as you snap your bathroom selfie, and there you have it: perfect surprised face selfie every time.

Check out the pictures below to see the new surprised face selfie trend.
