Makeup For Dummies… and Boyfriends

Overheard daughter on the phone with her almost-new boyfriend talking about make-up.

For the purpose of this narrative, and because I am a bit squeamish using the “b” word (uhm, that’s “boyfriend”, not the other “b” word), I will now dub boyfie as KBB. (Because we call him Kylie Boi Boi. Not his real name. Uhmm… yeah.)

So, D (daughter) was telling KBB about what kinds of make-up there are, I gather in the context of Christmas presents.

D: Do you know what highlighters look like?

KBB: uhmm… Stabilo highlighters? In green orange, pink…

D: No!!! Not the ones you buy from National Bookstore!!! *Explain, explain, blah, blah.* What about contour make-up?

KBB: What’s that?

D: The make-up you use to put shadow so it contours your face. *Explain, explain, blah, blah.*

KBB: Oh, so highlight is like the brightness setting on your face? And contour is the sharpness setting?

D: I guess?

Haha. Nerds.
