Why I can’t I use on fleek or strobing in a sentence without feeling like a jerk? I mean “My makeup is so on point!” sure, I can say that comfortably but “My makeup is on fleek!” I’m cringing so hard right now never mind saying it out loud as I’d likely blush and feel like an idiot if I did.
I’m either getting old or makeup jargon and slang is getting cooler than me, not that I’ve ever been cool, geeky yeah, but I was never a Heather unless you count lunchtime poll at gay clubs with my best friend haha.
But yeah, somehow, someway, makeup brands are creating their own lingo.
It’s no longer highlighting people, it’s strobing. And your makeup isn’t on point, it’s on fleek.
Maybe practice saying it in front of a mirror that might make you feel less like an idiot saying it in public?
Shrug…just throwing out helpful suggestions here.
As we head into Spring 2016, yes, Spring 2016 because people, the week before Christmas (or if we’re running a little late the week after Christmas) you’ll likely be hearing about the Too Faced Spring 2016 Collection that’s probably going to be on fleek. Ha see? I used it in a sentence…or did I? Not sure the sentence made sense….maybe, kinda, sorta.
But yes, with Spring 2016 I think you’re going to see a lot of strobing and fleeking and other makeup jargon that you might not understand or aren’t cool enough to use in a sentence.
But don’t worry, I’m right here, being just as not cool as you are.
Pats on the back for all, you’re welcome.
How stupid or cool do you feel using words like “fleek” or “strobing” when describing your makeup?
Comfortable with it?
Totally feel like a non-Heather when using it?
