Stop Looking So Mean & Angry: How to Reverse Resting Bitch Face

  • Topic Info:"Resting Bitch Face" is a label given to women who look mean, unintentionally.

    The term might have started off as a joke, but many women are identifying with this phenomenon.

    This condition actually exists. The severity depends on the shaping and lines of your face. For example:

    • Thin lips = mean, older, strict/stern
    • Lines/folds around the mouth or down from the corners = mean, unapproachable, unfriendly, harsh, scowling
    • Beady, non-open looking eyes = shifty, tired, uninterested, apathetic, bored/boring
    • Deep folds/lines between the eyes = angry, grouchy, stern, scolding
    • Low, flat arched eyebrows = tired, stressed, exhausted
    • Too-high arched eyebrows = giddy, ditzy, hyper
    • Low eyebrows folded towards the center = judgmental
    • Large, non-refined or bottom-heavy nose = masculine, non-feminine, rough, older
