    Default Look good/well

    Hello,

    Is the difference between "look good" and "look well" the same as "feel good" vs "feel well"?

    Are you feeling all right? You don't look so [good/well].

    Thank you.

    Nawee

    Context is important. If you tell someone "You don't look so good", it is likely that you are suggesting that they look ill/sick.
    If you say "You look really good!", you are more likely to be commenting on their overall appearance - clothes, hair, makeup (if appropriate) etc.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
