12 Handy Positive Words to Describe Facial Expressions

12 Handy Positive Words to Describe Facial Expressions by Dilyana Kyoseva (CatMint5 on wattpad)

Sometimes when I read my chapters, I notice repetitions. How to avoid that?

Just write what you want, but using different words.

Following that advice, I’ll be creating lists with words and expressions that prevent me from saying the exactly same thing over and over again and, of course, I’ll be sharing those lists with you.

Here’s the first of them.

  1. appealing – this one can mean attractive, but it can also show good will, approval or agreement
  2. beatific – blissfully happy
  3. blissful – extremely happy and content
  4. cheerful – happy and optimistic
  5. dreamy – a dreamy look shows that your character is thinking about something pleasant while probably also being too distracted by it to pay attention to what is going on around them or with your other characters
  6. ecstatic – extremely happy, joyful, excited
  7. hopeful – feeling or inspiring optimism
  8. light up – when a person’s face lights up, their mood changes from a negative to a positive one
  9. mild – gentle, easygoing
  10. quizzical – your character can have a quizzical look when they are surprised and confused by something, but at the same time find that thing interesting, funny or non-threatening
  11. radiant – extremely happy
  12. smiley – smiling, cheerful

Some of the other lists I plan include:

  • neutral facial expressions
  • facial expressions while flirting/seducing a character

Other lists that already exist:

Do you know any other words that fit into this list?

Share them in the comments where you can also request a list on a particular topic.

    1. This is not what I’m looking for to extend the post (I only need words that have to do with facial expressions, not a list of every positive word out there), but thanks for sharing; someone else might find it useful


  1. When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Therefore that’s why this paragraph is great.


  2. Hi! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to
    give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through
    your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same topics?
    Appreciate it!
