Back up your compliment — Don’t just stop at “that necklace looks really good on you”. Your compliment becomes stronger when you say why you think so; “that necklace looks really good on you because it matches your eyes”.

Make your compliment specific — “That necklace looks really good on you” makes a bigger impact compared to “you look really good today”. The more specific the better, it makes the person feel like you notice them.

One of the greatest compliments you can give is to listen. Don't just listen so you can talk yourself, listen to see what the person you are talking to is thinking.

Let the compliment you give come from your heart. People know it when you say something just to start a conversation or you really mean it. When you compliment people on their good qualities, you will be positively reinforcing great qualities in them.
