How to use eyes emoji
The single focus direction of the eyes and the wideness of the expression often means that this emoji is used to signal that someone is hot, attractive or sexy. Let’s take an example - you visit a sandwich bar to grab some lunch and you notice a new and particularly attractive person that has started working there. Sure, you could gaze longing behind your mozzarella and tomato sub, or you could send your friend a message that reads: Dayum the new person in the sandwich shop is hawt 👀 The Eyes Emoji can also be used to question something or to at least cast doubt on it. Let’s say you see a video on Facebook and it the subject and content are beyond ridiculous. Reacting with the Eyes alone will sure that you are in disbelief or that you find the content ridiculous. The final use is to indicate that someone is being “shifty” or deceitful. The sidewards glance of the eyes is perfect for this kind of statement - an example message would read: You know that Stu? I swear he’s nicking all the biscuits👀
