I originally saw this on A Girl Recommends’ blog and then again on Emily Mae’s blog, and I thought it would be fun to do with my boyfriend. My boyfriend works at a warehouse for L’Oreal, so I expected him to know a little about makeup. This is what he thought the various makeup products were.
BB Cream: I don’t know what BB Cream is. I thought it was a brand. It’s not a type of makeup right? (He then talked about seeing a L’Oreal BB Cream commercial, but he still had no clue what it was)
Primer: I don’t know what it is. I know what normal makeup is.
Foundation: I know what that is. You use it with the right skin tone. You use it on your face and neck to make your skin look better.
Concealer: It’s something you use to cover up acne.
Powder: That’s pretty much the same as foundation. Like it has the same purpose.
Eye Shadow: You use it around your eyes.
Eye Liner: It’s the one you do like this *uses his finger to show where you use eye liner*
Mascara: That’s for your eye lashes.
Corrector: I don’t know. It’s something you correct makeup with.
Contour: I don’t know what that is.
Blush: It’s the red thing you use on your cheeks.
Bronzer: I have never heard of that word.
Highlighter: I only know of highlights in hair not makeup.
Setting Spray: I don’t know. I guess something to set the makeup.
Lip Liner: I have no idea. I have never heard of lip liner before. (I asked him what he thinks it is based on the name, and he still had no clue)
Like I expected, my boyfriend knew about some makeup like foundation and blush, but he did not know some words because they were in English and not Danish, so I can give him a break on a not knowing a few.
