stira lapanim


Explanation:
stira (samech, tet, yud, reish, he). Panim means face, as opposed to lechi which means cheek.
lapanim (lamed, pe, nun, yud, mem sofit).
I guess this translation is more colloquial.

KMO STIRA BAPANIM


Explanation:
As an insult (and not the real act), you should add the word KMO (like):
KMO STIRA BAPANIM (like a slap in the face)
or
KMO STIRAT LECHI (like a slap in the cheek).
