  • Fear: the eyebrows are raised, the eyes round and open, and the mouth is slightly open.
  • Disgust: the upper lip is raised, the bridge of the nose is wrinkled, and the cheeks are raised.
  • Anger is often expressed when the eyebrows are lowered, the lips are pressed firmly together, and the eyes bulging slightly.
  • Surprise: the eyebrows are pulled upward or arched, the eyelids are also pulled upward making the eyes rounder and wide open, and in some cases, with the mouth open.
