bare-faced


bare-faced
Явный, нескрываемый, открытый. В настоящее время это прилагательное используется для обозначения бесстыдного, наглого, дерзкого поведения: a bare-faced lie (наглая ложь); bare-faced cheek (наглость, нахальство). Надо сказать, что первоначальное значение этого слова не носило отрицательного характера и обозначало открытость и честность, так как a bare face — открытое лицо, т. е. без бороды.
