This Title is Redundant

This is just a fun and simple challenge to test your husband/boyfriend/partner’s makeup knowledge. It’s sure to get some laughs! My husband and I sure had fun doing this. I realized I had a lot more to teach him haha. Also, ladies… There’s no shame in teaching your man about makeup – The more he knows, the better it’ll be for you if there’s a crisis and you need him to run out and grab something for you. Better to be safe than sorry, and why not have fun prepping?

Here we go!!!

Please Define:

Bronzer: Used to contour your cheeks or darken your skin.

Blusher: Used to bring undertones up.

Mascara: Used to darken your eyelashes, or extend them, or plump them depending on what you want to do.

Eye Liner: Used to outline your eyelid. Your inner eyelid.

Strobing: No f*cking idea.

Eye Shadow: Usually a pigment that goes directly around your eyelid up to your brow bone.

Powder: Foundation.

Concealer: Used to conceal blemishes before anything goes over the top.

Highlighter: Used to accentuate cheekbones or to brighten in general.

Setting Spray: Used to hold makeup in place throughout the day so you don’t have to redo it.

Contouring: Accentuate cheekbones.

Primer: Applied before whatever makeup you’re putting on. There’s multiple different kinds.

Lip Liner: A pencil or a gel that goes around your lips, outside of the lipstick.

Secondary Question: “So what order do you apply the lip liner and the lipstick in?”

His Answer: “Uh…I’m fairly sure that I have seen you do lipstick first, but I think it might be the other way around.”

Followup: “Omg I have never.”

Brow Pencil: To color in your eyebrows. Or to shade them.

Serum: Usually a light liquid or gel applied to the skin.

Cleanser: Face wash to take makeup off.

Micellar Water: I have no f*cking idea. I’ve been trying to figure that out myself. Apparently its some kind of, like, ion charged water or something.

Toner: Just applied to the skin to dry it a little bit; to balance your complexion, so to speak.

BB Cream: Used in place of foundation so that you don’t have to apply powder and cream.

Was this test hard? Yes/No and Why?

Not exceptionally because it’s pretty generic terms.

Could you do my makeup the same way I do it every day?

No. We’ve already learned that.


That’s it for this challenge! Hope you had a fun read and maybe even a few laughs at my expense. Remember, this is all in good fun. 🙂

Until next time,
