A character’s smile is important.  It can set the tone of the conversation, give a hint about how a character feels or what they think.  Here are some of the ways a smile can be described.

  • Weak
  • Distracting
  • Grateful
  • Slow
  • Forced
  • A Hint of a Smile
  • First Smile
  • Quick
  • Bright
  • Dazzling
  • A Smile That Could Melt
  • Disarming
  • Big
  • Brief
  • Genuine
  • Brittle
  • Broad
  • Gummy
  • Cheesy
  • Mirthless
  • Sardonic
  • Sly
  • Tremulous
  • Unconvincing

In my first novel, Forbidden, I introduced Cynder.  One of Cynder’s most memorable traits is his sly smirk.  I mention his smirk throughout the novel at different times because it is one of his most charming features as the main love interest.  His smirk is enticing and (excuse my sappiness) creates warm fuzzies for the main female lead.

There are lots more ways to describe a smile, but these are some that I have used in my writing.  If you know a few more ways to describe a person’s smile, please leave me a comment and let me know.  I am always looking for feedback to improve my skills.
