Duckface is the common term for a hideous facial expression, popularly used in self-taken photographs, in which the lips are pursed and flattened, usually accompanied by widened eyes which rarely look directly at the camera. It is mainly used by the subject to show how cute and "random" they are.

Duckface is an internet phenomenon which has found its place as an alternative to the fat girl angle shot technique of self portrait. It is favoured by teenage girls and those who wish to present themselves as fun loving, ditzy people.
The duckface can often be seen alongside basic photo manipulation techniques, such as the use of high contrast and blur functions to considerably improve the appearance of the subject, as well as, in extreme cases, lens flare.
