This lesson is for all you ladies, and i’m pretty sure the Gents will also take something away with them too.
Have you ever wanted to say what foundation or mascara was in Chinese? These things are possibly items that you use every day, and yet i’m guessing you don’t know the words for them. Fear not, some of them I didn’t know either.
So join me in learning some words to describe putting on make-up, or you can just watch as my sister slowly abuses my face.
I just want to take a second to thank ChinesePod for giving me the opportunity to do what I love and share it with you guys. Check them out here if you want to find out what they’re all about :)
