A compliment always sounds nice to the person it is directed towards, but very rarely does a male get complimented for his good looks and personality!

Here are a few ways to compliment your beau in French:
  • You are so handsome - vous êtes si beau / tu es si beau
  • You are good-looking - vous êtes beau / tu es beau
  • You have beautiful eyes - vous avez de beaux yeux / tu as de beax yeux
  • You are cute - vous êtes mignon / tu es mignon
  • You are an amazing man - vous êtes un homme étonnant / tu es un homme étonnant
  • I adore you - Je vous adore / Je t'adore
  • I love you - Je vous aime / Je t'aime
If you want to go that extra mile, then try the following:
  • Are you busy this Saturday? - est-ce que vous êtes occupé ce samedi? / est-ce que tu es occupé ce samedi?
  • Would like to have dinner with me? - voulez-vous dîner avec moi? / veux-tu diner avec moi?
Please note that all the above translations that use "vous" are formal, whereas the "tu" form is what you'd use to somebody you know!

If you are addressing a man, you would probably say: Vous êtes si beau (formal) or Tu es si beau (casual) which basically means "you are very handsome." However, this is used primarily in literature, and is rarely said to a man.

If you are talking to a younger man, boy or boyfriend, you would probably use tu es mignon! which means "You're cute!"

I think you made a mistake.
"Tu es SI beau" = "You are SO handsome".
"Tu es TRÈS beau" = "You are VERY handsome".

Beau is how you say "handsome", "pretty" and "nice" in French. Just depends on context.
