  在如今这个看脸的世界,你脸上的每个部件都决定着颜值的高低。不过你知道吗?眼睛、鼻子、嘴巴,还能分分钟暴露你的情绪呢?今天我们就来看看英文里跟五官相关的一些地道表达。

 
  1. Blue in the face
 
  蓝色blue通常表现的情绪是抑郁、苦闷。Blue in the face指因为情绪激动、生气引起的脸色发青,有脸红脖子粗的意思。
 
  例句:
  You can criticize him until you're blue in the face, but you'll never change his personality.
  即使你苦口婆心地批评他,也改变不了他的个性。
 
 
  2. Head in the clouds
 
  把头埋在云彩里?多么不切实际的事情呀!所以,head in the clouds的意思就是活在幻想中,可以指某人在胡思乱想,心不在焉。
 
  例句:
  A: The teacher asked you a question, but you didn’t even here him!
  老师问你问题,但是你甚至没听到!
 
  B: Sorry, my head was in the clouds.
  抱歉,我刚才开小差了。
 
 
  3. Heart in your mouth
 
  类似于“心都提到嗓子眼了;吓得要命”。Heart in your mouth表示的是极端的恐惧和焦虑。
 
  例句:
  I had my heart in my mouth when that happened, as I just did not know what was going to happen
  当时我的心都提到嗓子眼了,不知道接下来会发生什么。
 
 
  4. Give someone a black eye
 
  除了熊猫之外,一般来说,眼睛黑了自然是被打了。Give someone a black eye的意思是将某人打得鼻青脸肿。
 
  例句:
  I had never punched anybody in my life but I hit out and gave him a black eye.
  我一生中从未打过人,但我却动手打青了他的一只眼睛。
 
 
  5. turn up one's nose at   
 
  把鼻子朝着某人,也就是 “不拿正眼看待别人”,那肯定就是鄙视、轻视人家啦!
 
  例句:
  Ever since she won the speaking contest, she turns her nose up at everyone.
  自从她演讲比赛得奖以后,就谁也瞧不起了。
