OMG action shots from the show are finally up! You peruse through the album, fingers crossed, hoping FOR ONCE to get an epic (or at least nice enough) photo that you can Instagram for #TBT.

But wait, what’s this? In every single shot you’re in… your facials are all over the place!! Double chin, tongue out, cross-eyed, sweat running down your face…SIGH.

That’s the beauty of it though.

What comes out may not be the most flattering on camera, but that’s because the moment was so RAW and you gave your all to the performance!

So no matter what your facial is, embrace it!

Here are 10 facials you probably make when you dance.

1. The concerned, angsty facial

Due to the popularity of wistful R&B songs among choreographers, this EMOTION-filled facial has become a go-to.

I love this facial so much that I had to dissect it.

Let’s start from the top.

First, your forehead scrunches up into something that looks like:


The same way the ridges in these chips are there to snatch bits of MSG-saturated flavor-powders, your forehead can grasp all the pent-up emotion behind the piece.

A bit below, your eyebrows strain to tilt¬†into¬†the kanji character¬†for the number “8”:


The “worried” eyebrows.

Your mouth is most likely slightly pursed, trying to hold in all your Drake-y confessions about your ex.

All together,

This facial looks a little something like:

2. The funky animated facial

Just WATCHING this face gets me excited.

Your eyes, nose, mouth all have a mind of their own!!!

It’s like a whole performance in itself, just from the neck-up!

This facial looks a little something like:

Or, IRL, a little something like:

3. The FIERCE no-facial facial

It’s like you’re too good¬†to even bother with a facial. Like why bother, your body can do all the talking.

4. The FIERCE like SUPER FIERCE facial

If #3 was the blasé version of fierce, this is the SASHA FIERCE of fierce.

High heels, cage bra, red lipstick, eyebrows a-fleekin’, ready-to-steal-your-man type of fierce.

Imagine you’re mouthing the letter “H” over and over.

Or biting into an imaginary turkey leg from Disneyland.

It’s all about showing your¬†teeth, but not in a smile.

5. The surprised at my own body facial

Whoa!! Whoa, that’s my arm!!!! OOOoo-WEEEEEE is that my SHOULDER¬†just wiggling about?? Look at my feet though!!!

This facial usually accentuates the effects of isos, like a guideline for how the viewer should react to the movement whose origin is utterly baffling

This facial looks a little something like:

6. The “Swearing 101” Facial

Casually shifting your weight left to right, staring down the 4th wall, while having the inner monologue: “yee we ready, aiite, aiite, okay, aiite, okay.. okay, aye, aiite”

While using the palm of your hand as a napkin to check for crumbs on the side of your mouth

Then using your thumb to flick a booger from your nose.

Dang, this facial is a whole-body cleaning, I swear..

This facial looks a little something like:

7. The FSU facial

An evolved¬†version of the previous facial ‚Äď this one is DEFINITELY a whole-body effort.

It’s at the¬†full-out combo climax: jumping around, screaming, yelling, TICK, TICK, BOOM!

ARE YOU AT BODY ROCK OR AUDITIONING TO BE AN EXTRA IN 300? EITHER WAY, USE YOUR CORE!!!

This facial looks a little something like:

8. The half-closed eyes, open mouth, lifted chin facial

It’s the “bad girl” facial.

Imagine you’re teasing a guy who obviously wants you and¬†you wanna play hard to get because IDK, GIRLS JUST DO IT LIKE THAT?

Anyways. You got that sultry, “come hither” eyes, inviting lips, probably to complement¬†some slooooooooow millllkyyy choreography RIGHT before you do a BA-BASS- booty dip.

Throw in a lip bite and/or lick if you want +10 baddie points!

This facial looks a little something like:

9. The “Ah sh*t, what’s the next move” facial

Don’t worry. It happens.

It looks a little something like:

 

 

10 . The who farted? facial

Basically, you just look disgusted. This facial goes perfectly with the more new-skewl type of hip hap pieces.

This facial looks a little something like:
