Facial expression with puckered lips

Duckface is a term that describes a facial pose where a person puckers her lips, making them look like a duck's bill. It became popular in 2013 as female teens commonly made the pose for photographs.

The pose was especially popular among celebrities on social media. It eventually faded as people grew tired of seeing the same pose in countless photos on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.
