Tu ne vas pas le faire pour ses beaux yeux!

You’re not going to do it just to please him/her!

This is an exclamation of horrified disbelief. It’s almost a question, in fact. You’re not really going to do that, are you? For no reason at all?

But that’s the thing, you see. There is a reason! Possibly not the world’s best reason, but…you’re doing it for his/her beautiful eyes!

Normally, the implication of this phrase is that, by doing this thing, you are more or less selling your soul to the devil. The owner of those beautiful eyes is surely up to no good, and will bring you to ruin. It suggests that you are so head-over-heels that you have lost your powers of reasoning.

So I am hereby providing you with an opportunity to explain yourself and your motives. And, because I love you as my friend, I am hoping that you have seen some side of the situation that has escaped me, and that there is some logic or reason behind your actions.
