    eye sb up

    Hi ! :)
    Can you check below sencentes? Is it correct?
    My sister got married last weekend. She had beautiful dress on. Each person eyed on my sister up.

    I'm not sure how to use "eye sb up". Maybe - Each person eyed her up, but First version sounds better and more correct for me.
    Can u check it?

    And this example : They were eyeing on her up all time.

    It's important for me so I please find every mistake in my post.

    Re: eye sb up

    In BrE, "to eye someone up" means that you look at them in a way that makes it clear that you find them attractive and that you might want to have some kind of intimate relationship with them. I don't think a bride would be happy if everyone was looking at her like that on her wedding day.

    Everyone was staring at her.
    Everyone was looking at her.
    Everyone was gazing at her.
    No one could take their eyes off her - she looked beautiful.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    There's no need to write a letter of thanks. Just click 'Thank'.

    I've deleted your unneccessary exclamation marks.
