Say goodbye to the pout… Fingermouthing is where it’s at.
There is a new trend taking over social media called Fingermouthing and it has been discovered by the online scientists at Buzzfeed.
Fingermouthing is a pose- it has been described as, “usually executed by an attractive woman - that involves dangling your fingers in front of your mouth, it’s supposed to appear 'careless' and 'off-guard' but is actually 'extremely calculated.’” Talk about pressure!
It seems that a number of celebs already have nailed the pose; Kylie Jenner,Khloe Kardashian, 'stylegrammer' Kristen Hancher, model Reese Cromwelland actress Ashley Benson are the most famous for fingermouthing.
Kylie recently revealed to Elle UK that the iconic pose is actually because of the insecurities she faces about her lips.
The youngest Jenner said, “I was so insecure about my lips. Even now I always post photos where my finger is always in front of my mouth…it's a habit. I would always cover my lips… I couldn't even talk to people” because she thought people would be looking at her lips.
Of course Kylie has since had lip injections!
The fingermouthing pose comes after the "t-rex hands" trend which Cosmodescibes, "You bend your fingers like a claw and position your hand over your chin, hair, or even forehead,"
Just like Shay Mitchell and Zendaya here…
This is so much pressure… we can’t even find good lighting for our selfies.
Time to start practicing fingermouthing.
