Best way to make a perfectly curved line for a smiley

Photoshop newb here just trying to make smiley faces.  How should I go about making a smile?   I tried using the pen but although I can created a curved shape with it, I don't want the shape but just the line to be curved for the smile.  Thankyou

just draw your curve with the pen like you've done, then just right-click on the canvas and select stroke path

This will make it REALLY simple.
Make a new layer.
Draw an elliptical selection on the new layer.
Go to Edit>Stroke. Enter some number for the stroke width and pick a color.
Hit ok.
Deselect the circle by clicking anywhere with the marquee tool.
Grab the eraser tool.
Erase the parts of the circle you dont want. What's left should look like a smile.

Yea I'm aware of that, but it needs to be perfect.  I've already used another program to do it. thanks anyways.

What about that isnt perfect? If you need both ends to be the same length just use a rectangular selection drawn across the top of the circle, and delete. Doesn't get any more perfect than that.
