DICTIONARY 📚 meaning of the words that often are used in the beauty community.
My friend came up with the excellent idea of describing words I often use in my posts and that are often used in the beauty community. So here goes: .
Hit pan: when you see the bottom of a product, usually it’s the metal part in products (see example above) .
Panning/project pan: when you actively use a product in order to hit pan or use it up. .
Bake: when you use an excessive amount of powder over cream products on your face, let it sit for a while and then remove the access powder. The heat of your skin will “bake” the powder in with the cream and make it last longer. .
Cut crease: an eyeshadow method where you take concealer/eye shadow base and mark out the inner half of the lid and then put a shadow on top. The lid will have a line separating it from the eyeshadow blended on top. .
Halo eye: an eyeshadow method where you use darker shadows on each side of the lid and a lighter shade in the middle. Creates a halo effect. .
Soap brows: a method where you take a lightly damp spoolie, rub it a bit on a hard soap and then run through your eyebrows. It will act like a brow gel. .
Pan (opposite of compact): pan is when the product doesn’t have a compact packaging around it, such as a single shadow. It’s a refillable product usually in a magnetic palette. .
MOTD: short for “makeup of the day” there’s also EOTD which is “eye of the day” .
