Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian West announced that selfies聽are dead, but it鈥檚 no matter: Instagram has already found a way to replace them. It鈥檚 called chinning, and instead of showcasing the sheer perfection of our own flawless faces, it鈥檚 focused on celebrating our IMPERFECTIONS and showing off our goofy side.

First started聽by Instagrammer聽Michelle Liu, the trend is a super simple one to get on board with. Simply take a selfie from a low angle (that鈥檚 right, no more shooting from above!), showing off as many chins as you possibly can, preferably in front of a cool backdrop, like, say, the London Eye or Eiffel Tower.

Speaking with聽Mic,聽the 21-year-old revealed she started her account, @chinventures, in September 2016 with the goal of helping others feel more comfortable in their own skin and give them the confidence they need to look silly on social media.

From the looks of things, it鈥檚 definitely working: Not only does the聽Boston native currently boast 10K followers herself, with snaps from all over the globe (鈥淚 haven鈥檛 chinned everywhere, but it鈥檚 on my list,鈥 Liu said), she鈥檚 inspiring plenty more to聽do the same, with more than 8,000 results for the #chinning tag.

For followers of the trend, it鈥檚 a聽welcome change from the filtered, Photoshopped, perfectly posed photos we鈥檝e grown used to seeing in recent years, which figures such as plus-size model Iskra Lawrence are working hard to expose the realities behind.

While the perfect selfie can take hours to perfect or make us feel inadequate, chinning is all about having fun 鈥 even if you鈥檙e not the one doing the posing. 鈥淪trangers always notice me chinning,鈥 Liu, who snaps her shots with a selfie stick, told the outlet. 鈥淪ome appear shocked, others confused, but across the board from my experience, they are usually entertained.鈥

FYI: "Pickpockets are active in the tower"

With shots like the one above, it鈥檚 pretty easy to see why.

Chin on, girl!
