媚笑

Pronounced: mèi xiào
Literally: “flatter/charming laugh/smile”
Means: a bewitching smile; an ingratiating smile. The closest thing I could find in Chinese to approximate a “come-and-get-me grin” (from Dierks Bentley’s “What Was I Thinkin’?”). According to my Chinese coworkers, mèixiào is generally considered less innocent than 暗送秋波。
