🤭 Meaning: A yellow face with eyes and a hand covering the mouth. It varies in appearance on different platforms. On Apple devices and Facebook, this emoji represents ‘Oops’ or ‘Whoops’ emotion, shock, surprisement, and even dread.
But on other platforms like Google (Android) and Microsoft Windows, the Face With Hand Over Mouth emoji features smiling eyes; adding an overall eased out vibe with blushing and laughing expressions. However, the smiling eyes also pose a disrespectful and insulting expression in certain contexts. Use with caution.
How and When to Use the 🤭 Face With Hand Over Mouth
- The usage of this emoji depends on the expression. If someone just sent you something terrible and shocking, then you can use this emoji with the plain eyes as an OMG response.
- However, if you’re texting in a group and one of your buddies sent something hilarious that happened to a common friend, then you can use this emoji (with smiling eyes) as a LOL response. But beware! Someone could take it as you are embarrassing them.
- This emoji is mostly a reactive emoji, hence you can use it to react to something that comes your way via text (but keep in mind the distinction between expressions).
