#119 Beauty and Makeup vocabulary in English


Hi everyone! I am Georgiana, founder of My mission is to help you speak English fluently.

In today's lesson, I'll talk about makeup. I've decided to introduce some basic vocabulary related to makeup products. So if you want to enrich your English vocabulary, I suggest that you continue listening.

Let's see what beauty products we need for a basic look.

Most women want to be ready in 5 minutes and depending on the time that I have, or the occasion, I spend between 5 and 30 minutes doing my makeup.

If you are a makeup lover, you know that there are countless makeup products. So, remember that in this episode, I will focus on the basics.

OK, so, what's the first step?

Before I start, I'd like to mention some essential points like, how do we apply makeup? What makeup tools do we need for that?

There are so many options, but don't worry; I promise to keep it simple.

There are at least two makeup tools that you need to have in you collection: makeup brushes, and at least one makeup sponge, (also called a blender.)

Depending on the product you want to apply, you'll choose the right makeup tool. 

Just keep in mind that many of the beauty items that I will mention come in a variety of textures. The most common ones are powder, liquid, cream, and gel.

So, let's start our makeup routine. Remember, you only have 5 minutes!

The foundation, as its name indicates, is where we apply the rest of the beauty products. It's a makeup product very similar to a cream, except that it should have the same color as your skin. We apply it all over the face or only on the spots where we choose to hide imperfections.

Concealer is a very similar product, but we use it to hide the dark circles under the eyes that make us look tired. 

After applying foundation, we need to add some products on the cheeks:

Bronzer is a product that gives the impression that we've been in the sun the whole weekend. I would say that nowadays, it's the most loved makeup product together with the highlighter.

Wait a minute!  What’s a highlighter?

It’s a cosmetic product that reflects light. It gives a youthful glow to the face and body.

Another thing that I like to apply is blush. This beauty product adds redness to the cheeks. It comes in a variety of colors like pink, peach, red, that imitate a natural flush.
