Secret Tricks to Pull Off Confident Poker Face

Secret Tricks to Pull Off Confident Poker Face

Keeping a poker face not only wins you money in the casino, but also in life. A good confident poker face could save you from a crisis at the workplace. As a result, perhaps, your manager would come to be impressed by your calm and collected countenance. Unbeknownst to them, you are actually in the middle of having a literal mental breakdown. As the saying goes, fake it until you make it.

There are several ways you can appear calm and confident. However, we have collected some additional tricks that can be the real game-changer! 

But first, let’s go over the basics…

  1. Keep your breath steady
    You want to be in control, so take a deep breath and relax. The one thing that you do during a crisis is getting into panic mode. This is not good since you want to be observant under any circumstances because that is how you get information.
  2. Maintain eye contacts and don’t forget to blinks
    You should maintain eye contact, and when you do, do not stare. However, excessive blinking is also a sign of nervousness, so don’t go overboard. Balance between keeping a steady eye contact and focused look so your gaze doesn’t flit around.
  3. Keep your jaw relax
    Do not clench your teeth. A tensed jaw affects how the rest of your face will look.  This includes your smile, frown, or smirk which can give away your poker face and reveal your actual emotion. Additionally, jaw clenching is bad for your health.

Now, here’s how you pull off a confident poker face…

  • Squinch your eyes
    But do not over do it. This method is even more beneficial for you who have hooded eyes. Droopy and sometimes hooded eyes can unintentionally give off a lethargic look. That is the opposite of what we aim here, so try to squinch your eyes just a little bit to create that confident look.
  • Pull up your eyelids
    This might sound impossible, but you can voluntarily pull up your eyelids to get rid of that droopy look. Just like you can squeeze your butts from within, you can also do that with your eyes. The goal is to create a sharp upward look. So, the end of your eyes and eyebrows should go up instead of down.

  • Slightly tuck your lower lip under your upper lip
    Yes, you can in fact do this without surgery. This trick serves to pull off that attractive model pout you often see on editorial. You can do this by slightly tucking in the ends of your lower lip in and under your lip. If you do this correctly, your lips will look much fuller and complete your confident poker face.

And that’s all! Remember to keep on practicing your confident poker face on the mirror before trying it out for real! Moderation is key, you don’t want to end up looking like Ben Stiller in Zoolander, right?
