Home alone last evening I was watching House of DVF (as I do) and it occurred to me that bitch face and resting bitch face are a thing now. Like, actually.
Backstory–after scoffing at Jessica Joffe last week (I don’t really like Jessica, btw) Diane and her team are questioning how good of a candidate Brittany really is for the Brand Ambassadorship. During a meeting Brittany was told by Stefani that she has negative energy and she needs to be more pleasant in person.
To those of you that know me (hey girl, hey) you know that I suffer from this particular dilemma. Not exactly “resting” bitch face, but more like active bitch face.
Active bitch face is when the thoughts that you should definitely keep to yourself, you know what momma says about not having anything nice to say, start playing out on your face giving you this expression:
The good news is that making this facial expression actually has benefits. No offense to the kid. I think she’s adorable.
First benefit is that ugly men and annoying children are not likely to approach you while making this face. I think that’s actually the best perk, hence listing it as number one.
Another perk is that you are using the frown muscles in your face which don’t get used as often so yay for facial exercise and maintaining youth.
If caught making this expression and someone snaps a photo its likely to be made into a meme that can sweep the social media nation. #werk
Also this look conveys multiple feelings.
“What are you doing?”
“You’re dumber than I thought you were.”
“Remove yourself from my presence.”
And finally, “girl, bye.”
Both resting and active bitch face do have drawbacks. It can keep you from landing that super sought after brand ambassadorship for example. So be conscious and beware. Bitch face is a weapon. Wield with caution.
