5 Makeup Terms To Add To Your Vocab List ASAP

Today’s post is a requested post. I asked a few of my friends for some terms that would suit this post was able to get heaps of terms that are well known but not known known if that makes sense… I am planning to make a few posts regarding these makeup terms, let me know if that is what you would like. Before I get onto the post, i have linked my other isolation posts below just in case you missed any:

Disclaimer: I am 100% not a professional so these definitions are purely from my experimentation and what I have gathered through my endless attempts to apply makeup.

Now, if you are still here, let’s get on to the post:

  • Contour
    • While using a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone or even your foundation skin tone in particular sections of your face, you can use makeup to enhance or ‘hide’ certain features of your face. For instance, your jawline, cheekbones, eyebrow bones, forehead and more.
  • Winged
    • This is in reference to eyeliner and is not a bird. Stay tuned for another post regarding makeup products being defined to find out what eyeliner is. Winged eyeliner means that when you apply eyeliner to your upper lash liner, you continue on to the further out of the corner of the outer eye to create a ‘wing’ per se.
  • Makeup brushes
    • These bad boys are an application tool. There are multiple for the multiple makeup products available.
  • Baking
    • Now, this is not a cake; regardless of the “jokes”… Baking is basically applying loose powder on your ‘fresh’ liquid base to lock in the product and to create a smooth finish to your base. I have heard of people doing this to their eyebrows as well to make them last longer through the day.
  • Cut crease
    • Applying a base of eyeshadow to your eyelids and then using a small about of concealer to make a new base on top to ‘cut’ a new sheet of canvas per se to add a different colour of eyeshadow or to add glitter.

I hope these basic definitions help you out. I have a always had a interest into makeup and fashion. Through trial and error with a side of experimentation I have somehow managed to be ok at makeup (if I don’t say so myself). I can definitely go into detail about a few of these definitions but we would be here for ages. Let me know if there are any other terms you would like me to attempt to define.
