Spanish Basics: How to Describe a Person’s Face

To begin with, if you meet someone who has a thin face, you would say “una cara delgada”. Translated into English, this means “She has a thin face.” If you meet someone who has a chubby face, you would say “una cara regordete.” If you meet someone you would like to describe as having had a face lift you would say un lifting or un “estiramiento facial.” If someone has wrinkles you would say “arugas.” If someone’s face is happy, you would say “una cara alegre.” If someone has a big nose you would say “una nariz grande.” If someone has sunken eyes you would say “ojos hundidos.” In the event that you meet someone with shifty eyes you would say “ojos furtivos.” and these are good tips if you want to learn to speak spanish.
