blink x wink – piscar
to blink (piscar) is to open and close both eyes in a fast way so you can spread tears across the cornea.
Sam always blinks in the pictures. (Sam sempre pisca nas fotos)
in the blink of an eye – num piscar de olhos
I will go in and out the house in the blink of an eye (Vou entrar e sair da casa num piscar de olhos)
to wink (piscar or dar uma piscada) is to quickly close and open one eye to show that what you just said is a joke or secret or because you’re interested in the person.
That guy just winked at me. Should I go and talk to him? (Aquele agora acabou de piscar pra mim. Devo ir lá falar com ele?)
* you wink at someone
