Mensagem:  Well, when I lived in Brazil if you felt the person telling you something was not the whole truth and nothing but the truth you would reach up with your index finger and tug on your upper cheek under one eye....and say "ay é" to signify you were not being fooled. In other words, your eye was open more than usual and the person was under observation. I don't remember the verb for such a hand/eye movement.
