Smize... Valentine's Day arrives on TGI Friday!
Smizing refers to a term Tyra Banks coined while hosting "America's Top Model." It involves the art of fierce self expression by smiling with your eyes during a photo shoot.
Tyra Banks: The art of the smize.
Smize, which blends the words "smile" and "eyes" together, reminds us of another popular saying--"Eyes are the window to the soul." It means if you look directly into someone's peepers, you can determine how they really feel or what they're truly thinking about.
Will that special someone in your life see love or passion in your eyes--or perhaps a smize--on Valentine's Day? After drinking a glass of champagne or eating a few chocolates, there's no telling how you might feel. To help glam your gaze, we present the latest eye-popping looks using liners, shadows, mascaras, pencils and skin care. They're designed to perk up your peepers for a more radiant appearance on the most romantic day of the year.
So smize for your significant other, and keep your eyes on these prize beauty products. Have a happy Valentine's Day!
