​Look directly in their eyes and see if they meet yours. Strong eye contact is a sign of confidence. If they’re being truthful with you then they’ll feel confident about what they’re saying. However, if they’re lying, the stress of doing it will likely cause their eyes to shift. They may worry that they’re giving themselves away through their eyes and try to look away as much as possible. However, in their effort to not appear suspicious, they actually ironically show that they’re not being truthful.

However, be careful as some people have a hard time keeping eye contact in general if they struggle with self-esteem and assertiveness. Take their usual tendencies into account, and look for whether they match or not.
