    When a person smiles because they are genuinely moved to feel happy, more muscles of the face are involved and not just the mouth. The best indicator comes from the area around the eyes.

    You see the cheek bones go high enough to make the eyes squint. That's a genuine smile.

    Look at someone's eyes. Does their smile reach their eyes? If not, they are lieing.

    You others had good factual answers, so I won't beat a dead horse. I will say one thing that I like to do is to examine the smiles of people and politicians on billboards to see how fake and utterly mean some of them actually look. Some of them are merely raising their upper lip and bearing their teeth like some carnivore. It's a little startling when you take the time to think about what you are seeing in others.

      Despite my factual answer, I like yours much better. LOL!

    I believe you can tell quite a bit by looking into a persons eyes.  They truly are the "windows to the soul".

    By their eyes - if they smile but the eyes are cold or vacant - it is not a genuine smile.

    Human touch:) A genuine smile goes straight into your heart and you know you met another human being. A fake smile is just a grimace on a face of a manequine, who is dressed just like a human, but it is still just a lifeless figurine.
