We often see more than one emotion on the face at the same time. Watch this video to see how disbelief or irritation can be expressed through facial expressions.
Beth is watching an action-packed trailer for some TV shows and she finds the voiceover unconvincing and the scenes coming at such as fast pace she can’t keep up.
Her lowered brow and narrow eyes show that she not only disbelieves what she is hearing – she finds it puzzling to the point of irritation.
She gently shakes her head in disbelief. Her mouth is pulled up towards her nose in irritation.
Signs to note
- lowers her eyebrows
- narrows her eyes
- pulls up her mouth under her nose
- a slow shake of the head
