The "smize" (smiling with your eyes, obviously) is as known as Instagram itself. But there's a new social media pose on the block: the "shmile!" Coined by Daily Mail, influencers are flooding timelines with the pose, which sees them smiling at the camera with their eyes closed—hence the shut-eye-smile abbreviation.
And while the pose is not exactly be new, the word is—and is definitely a trend that is flooding Instagram feeds regardless of how long it's been around. See exhibits A, B and C (and D!):
"Dubbed the 'shmile'—short for shut eye smile—it's the act of lightly closing your eyes and pulling a cheeky, wide-toothed grin, instantly evening out the lines around the side of your face", MailOnline wrote. "It conveys a carefree, down-to-earth air, hence its popularity."
Whatever the reason for its popularity, it looks cute.
