Is it something to do with smiling at somebody or just plain smiling?

I see no link of the 3 characters 对微笑 using WCC dictionary.

笑 means laugh  ( or smile as a secondary meaning )

微笑 means smile ( or little laugh )

  See this link that uses 笑 as inout to WCC:

When using  对 as input to WCC dictionary ( and using "more" at bottom to get to the very bottom)

    http://dictionary.writtenchinese.com/#sk=u5BF9&svt=pinyin   

Also depends on what parts of speech  对 and 微笑   are being used as in a sentence.

For  对 a proposition and 微笑  a noun:

对我微笑
对一个漂亮的女孩微笑

Duì wǒ wéixiào
duì yīgè piàoliang de nǚhái wéixiào

For me smiles
For a pretty girl smiles

I have seen the phrase  面對微笑   Miàn duì wéixiào  and I am puzzled by meaning "Faced with a smile

or meaning "face smiling".

 

微笑由两个字组成“微”和“笑”,“微”可以看做形容词或是限定词,“微”的含义是 mini , small,gentle

 

不知道这样解释能否理解?“微笑”时的面部表情要比“笑”时的面部表情小很多。向某个人表示问候、打招呼、表示自己的友好,就是”微笑“。

smile at sb  向某某人微笑

laught at sb  这个可能只是向某人笑,也可能是嘲笑某某人吧
