In this picture you can see- without a squinch or a smize my face looks expressionless.

What’s the deal with squinching and smizing?

Squinching and a smizing are basically the same thing– smiling with your eyes, or not allowing your eyes to be fully open. Fully open makes for a blank expression. So, the key is not quite fully open, not quite squinting. In between is the magical “squinch.”

Want to see another before and after without and then with smizing/squinching?

I wrote an article about it here when I was writing this dating column.

And a very detailed video about squinching

When I do makeovers, I teach my friends how to smize/squinch.

Robyn.

Kali. 

Susan. 

In case you’re in the market, here are similar things I’m wearing/using:

Aqua blue chubby pencil for eyes.

A black floppy hat. 

A black 3/4th blazer. 

Do you use the squinching/smizing technique for taking pictures? Would love to know!
