高級臉 [gāo jí liǎn]

Liu Wen

高級臉 [gāo jí liǎn] n. High-end face. This Internet slang term refers to the latest beauty trend among Chinese women. A Chinese woman who has a high-end face usually looks a little masculine. She often has the single eyelids, relatively small, long, and wide-set eyes, slightly higher cheekbones, thicker lips, and a chiseled jawline. The above facial features convey an air of aloofness and even frigidity. This trend differs from the traditional standard for female beauty which accentuates femininity and childlike innocence. The Chinese models popular in the West such as Lv Yan, Du Juan, and Liu Wen may have contributed to popularity of this Internet slang term.
