Surely my husband-to-be has picked up some of my knowledge about makeup?
Yeah, maybe not… I saw three of my favourite bloggers – Kirsty, Laura and Emmy post about this, and I knew I had to get Chris involved. He’s waited around for me to finish doing my makeup a hundred times so I had assumed he had absorbed some knowledge, like a sponge.
Primer – It’s like a base, isn’t it? For additional makeup to go on top of it.
Foundation – Wait, maybe foundation is the base. Well maybe foundation is the base layer so what is primer?!
Concealer – You can use it to hide dark circles and spots and that sort of thing.
Powder – Doesn’t it, like, brighten your face?
Blusher – Makes your cheeks red. Not like a drunk, but like a subtle red. *throws away all blushers*
Highlighter – Adds a bit of details. Or like a burst of colour.
Contour – Enhances your cheekbones and gives you those fine ass cheeks. *what, please don’t contour my bum*
Bronzer – Like tan for the face.
Mascara – Now that is for the eye line. Is it for the lashes?
Brow Gel – Gel for your eye brows. Self-explanatory.
Setting Spray – Helps makeup to set on your face.
Eye liner – Now that is definitely for the eye line. Enhances the eye line. *what’s an eye line?* The bit around your eyes.
Corrector – To get rid of a mistake. You use a corrector like a rubber for the face.
Strobing – In what context? *It’s a technique* Like strobe lighting? A technique that goes on and off really quickly.
Back to makeup school we go…
