Hello my Apples,

It’s a new week and welcome to another beauty blog post. On today’s post, i’ll be talking about some beauty slangs that are very important and common.

So i was trying to get posts inspiration on YouTube, then i saw some beauty terms. Some i am familiar with while some I’m not. I went online to see some term and ALLURE came through with some common and important terms.

These compilation was made by Deanna Pai for Allure

HERE ARE SOME BEAUTY TERMS/SLANGS THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

“Your strobing is especially lit and giving me life right now.”

CONTOUR

A technique used to enhance or create the illusion of shape through the use of dark (bronzer, foundation) and light (highlighter) makeup. For example, creating the appearance of higher cheekbones, a smaller forehead or a slimmer nose and chin.

BAKING

A technique of layering translucent powder over your foundation and concealer for several minutes, which allows the heat from your skin to set’ it, and then dusting off excess.

GIVING LIFE

When makeup looks so good that it gives your life new meaning and helps you get out of bed in the morning.

STROBING

Using highlighter.

RELATED: Which concealer do you use, which is best and why?

FACE BEAT OR BEAT UP

Makeup application so good that it looks perfect from every angle.

HAUL

An unceremonious dumping out of your bag of new beauty products followed by a show-and-tell.

GARAGE DOORS

Wearing a single shade of eye shadow from your eyes all the way up to your brows. Very popular in the ’80s

TAN-TOURING

The art of using self-tanner to contour by applying it wherever you’d typically apply bronzer. It’s longer-lasting and looks natural.

HIT PAN

When you scrape the bottom of a makeup palette or compact and grieve accordingly before getting your credit card out.

RING LIGHTS

A beauty vlogger’s secret weapon, these resemble magnifying mirrors—but with lights around the rim and nothing in the center. They cast a flattering glow of light that essentially FaceTunes your skin in real time.

DE-POT

To remove pans of makeup—think eye shadow and blush—from their compacts with the intent of replacing them or corraling them in a single magnetic palette. It’s like Marie Kondo’s KonMari method for people who don’t actually want to throw anything out.

HG

An acronym for Holy Grail that denotes your “holy grail” beauty product, i.e., something so essential to your makeup routine and/or life that you’d rather get run over than see it discontinued.

CUT CREASE

A technique in which the crease above your eyelid is “cut” sharply with a contrasting shadow in order to add depth to the look and enhance the eye shape.

MULTIMASKING

The beauty phenomena of applying different facial masks to certain areas of the face (based on specific concerns) versus using one all over. For example, using a deep pore-cleansing mask on the T-zone, a moisturizing mask on your chin and an oil-absorbing mask on your forehead — all at once!

OMBRÉ

A French-termed hairstyle featuring darker hues at the roots and gradual lightening toward the ends. Your brown roots can fade into a light blond at the tips.

Also lips whem two colors are used. The other is added at the middle of your lip.

OVERLINE

The act of using lip liner to draw the outline of one’s lips slightly outside the natural lip border in order to easily create the appearance of a fuller pout.

TIGHTLINE

Tightlining your eyes (also known as “invisible eye liner”) is a great way to add subtle definition to your peepers. Most people think that the point of tightlining is to make your eyes look bigger, but according to Los Angeles-based makeup artist, Jason Sanchez “it’s to make your eyelashes appear thicker and fuller.

STIPPLING

Applying liquid foundation to your face in a dotting motion. This technique disguises discoloration, bumps and scars, and leaves skin looking airbrushed.

STROBING

Dig out all of your illuminating products because strobing focuses on highlighting areas where light would naturally hit your face — like your cheekbones, brown bone, down your nose and the center of your forehead.

It’s like highlighting’s more intense cousin. Products used for strobing are typically brighter and lean more towards white colors.

WATERLINE

The lower part of your inner eyelid that is “wet” and leads to the tear duct. To add definition to any makeup look, this area is commonly lined with dark eyeliner. To make eyes appear bigger and more awake, use a white or flesh-toned eyeliner on your waterline! Just be gentle when applying product to your waterline, and always use a clean, hypoallergenic product.
