There are few things as concise as throwing a side-eye. It is, quite possibly, the most to-the-point expression of critical disapproval there is. For some, like Naomi Campbell, Ms. Wintour, and the gays, it's simply instinctual. You know, they're born that way. For others, it's an art that's nurtured from an early age. It requires finesse — a certain, how you say, je ne sais quoi. Lucky for you, side-eye grasshoppers, the compendium of visual shade is now yours to pore over and integrate into your everyday expressions. Use it wisely. Use it with care. The side-eye is a powerful weapon and must not be abused. God speed. May the sass be with you.
