The 'smize' (smiling with your eyes, obviously) is as commonly 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 close - hence the shut-eye-smile abbreviation.
And while the pose might not exactly be new, the word is - and it's 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.
