La Mer 海蓝之谜满$200送自选三件套?

Bobbi Brown 全场八折+满额送正装口红?

Estee Lauder 雅诗兰黛美妆护肤满$75减$10?

Shu uemura 植村秀琥珀卸妆膏和全场口红5折?

这几天各种广告和折扣邮件在我眼前飞来飞去,看的本猪头眼花缭乱,同志们~北美的夏日护肤美妆大促销已经开始了,你做好给化妆台换血的准备了么?

粉猪知道,暑期一到,出国旅游的,放假回国的,甚至在家网购的,所有的小仙女们都会遇到各种化妆品店或免税店的夏日酬宾活动。而“促销折扣”这类词汇随时都会启动女孩子们买买买的战斗力。

洗面奶,爽肤水,精华露,面霜,粉底液,口红腮红。谈起化妆品,我相信全中国有一半以上的女孩子能滔滔不绝的聊上一会儿,不仅如此,越来越多的猪猪男孩也不再是美妆小白,美妆护肤话题甚至可以变成社交时破冰话题。

想不想和志同道合但不会中文的小伙伴交流护肤心得?想不想在外选购化妆品的时候更有效便捷(不论是自选或者招导购)?如果你想,那么学会化妆品正确的的英文表达会给你带来意想不到的便利和扩大交友圈的机会,于是笨猪邀请你耐心地继续看下来吧~

今天粉猪就护肤品和化妆品的英文表达为主题,给大家开一期北美生活之护肤美妆篇——美妆只先涉及到了面部妆容,眼妆和唇妆的部分我们来日方长。注意!一大波波波波波波波波波波波波欧美美妆护肤剁手必备词汇,以及,常见问题的实用英文表达竟将来袭。

首先让我们来模拟购物一下,一般来讲我们进店以后如果柜姐迎上来(在北美一般柜姐只会跟你打个招呼,不会像国内也一样问你需要什么的,除非他看你站在一个柜台前很久做思考状,不然是不会招惹你的),问你:

“May I help you? / How can I help you? / what are you looking for?/Are you looking for something special?”

那么你该如何清楚地表达自己的需求呢?

情景:当你需要某类单品;

I need …/ I want …

I would like to look at…

I prefer …

Can you show me…?

Do you have any advice on …?

后面可以跟的东西很多,比如 lotion,或者你心里已经有了答案,就要那个款,就直接说明是什么,比如 Esteel Lauder Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion。

情景:当你需要建议,但是被询问你的肤质(What type of skin do you have?)的时候;

最简单的 I am。。。经典句式就可以了。

混合性肌肤 Combination Skin

干性皮肤 Dry Skin

中性皮肤 Normal Skin

油性皮肤 Oily Skin

敏感性皮肤 Sensitive Skin

好了,简单的模拟句我们了解了。那么接下来是真正的考验了,能全部看完的宝宝英语一定查不了,可以来杯奶茶犒劳一下自己了。


美妆——面部底妆篇|

 Makeup Essentials——Fcae (面部化妆品)

面部化妆的顺序应该不需要小编来普及到了吧?而且每个人的化妆顺序略有不同,有人会在粉底前上遮瑕,也有人是粉底铺好以后再遮瑕。每个人顺序不同,以下是按我的习惯和常识来介绍的。

◆ ◆ ◆

Face Primer(妆前乳)

Face primers’ exact effects on your skin and makeup can vary(变化的), but overall, their main purpose is to keep your skin looking smooth and your makeup looking fresh all day long.

很多人认为妆前乳是不必须的,但是对我这种大干皮,几乎不用就一定会浮粉,所以是我的必需品。同时任何肤质或者任何需求都有自己适合的妆前乳可以用。

◆ ◆ ◆

Foundation(粉底)

Foundation is probably the hardest part of your makeup routine to get right, as you not only have to consider the type of coverage (遮瑕度) you want (i.e. sheer/natural, medium, or full), but also your skin type and undertone(肤色).

粉底是很难选择的,因为你需要考虑遮瑕度,自身肤质和肤色三个方面的问题。如果你不是很清楚自己的类别的话,你可以去丝芙兰做一个叫Color IQ的小测试,而且它是免费的服务哟。

◆ ◆ ◆

BB Cream(BB 霜)

BB creams have primer built in.  It is an even better place to start than foundation, as it feels lighter on the skin,  and can be applied with your fingers. There is one major downside(缺点) to BB creams, which is that they usually come in limited shade ranges and don’t cater to darker skin tones. 

BB霜是已经包含了妆前乳在里面了,所以比起粉底更贴服皮肤,也更轻薄一些。缺点呢就是他的色度很窄,可以选择的范围很小。

◆ ◆ ◆

Concealer(遮瑕)

If you have acne(粉刺,痤疮)dark circles(黑眼圈), or any kind of discoloration(肤色不均), concealer is a must-have.

如果你有粉刺,黑眼圈或者任何肤色不匀的问题,那么你一定要拥有一支遮瑕。黑眼圈的遮盖和肤色色调有很大的关系,一般用桃红色或者粉红色的遮瑕膏是个不错的选择

◆ ◆ ◆

Blush(腮红)

Blush comes in powder(粉末), gel(凝胶), and cream formulations, with powder being the most popular. Recently, though, cream and gel blush have become very popular as well. 

In general, pink and peach tones work best on fair-to-medium skin, while mauve(紫红色), purple, and maroon(栗色) shades work best on darker skin tones. 

腮红呢,有粉状的,液体的,和膏状的。其中腮红粉饼是最常见流行的。只是近年来,另两种也开始热门了起来。一般来讲,粉红桃红都比较适合肤色不那么深的人,而肤色暗沉的人适合紫红色,紫色或栗色。腮红除了显气色,还会让你的五官更立体,所以腮红一般是我化妆过程中不可缺少的一步。

◆ ◆ ◆

Highlighter(高光)

Like many other beauty products, highlighter comes in various different forms(形态): powder(粉盘)cream(乳霜)liquid(液体)stick(棒), and powder/cream hybrid(粉末/奶油混合).My fool-proof(万无一失的,傻瓜都可以用的)  method for applying highlighter is to lightly apply it along the bridge of your nose, the tops of your cheekbones(颧骨), your cupid’s bow (上唇线,丘比特弓), and just below your eyebrows(眉毛).

每种形态的高光都有自己特有的优点,但对于初学者来讲我比较建议高光棒和高光盘。我所遵守的万无一失的办法就是沿着鼻子,颧骨,上唇线和眉毛下方轻轻地扫一层高光。

◆ ◆ ◆

Bronzer(阴影)

I recommend going no darker than one or two shades deeper than your natural skin tone, and either(任一) lightly dusting it all over the high points of your face for a healthy glow(光泽)or(或) simply in the hollows (谷,凹陷处)of your cheeks (below where you’d put your blush) for a more chiseled(轮廓分明) look.

我不是很喜欢那种骨骼分明的,看起来很阳光的妆容,我比较喜欢看起来白净的感觉。所以我建议大家不要选择比自己的正常肤色暗太多的阴影,最好打在面部突出的地方轻轻打一层,要么就是在腮红下方轻轻一扫。

◆ ◆ ◆

Setting Spray/Power (定妆喷雾/定妆粉)

Much like face primer, it works to keep your makeup in place all day. There are different formulations depending on what type of finish(妆效) you’re after (e.g. matte(哑光)radiant(珠光), etc.) and what skin care benefits, if any, you would like your setting spray/powder to have (e.g. moisturizing(保湿)oil-absorbing(吸油), etc.)

如果你想要你的妆容更持久的话,请一定要记得给自己定妆哦。

护肤篇|

◆ ◆ ◆

Cleansing Products (清洁产品)

The basic function (功能)of cleansing products is to remove makeup(卸妆), surface impurities (表面污垢)and oils; and to cleanse the skin thoroughly and gently(全面地且温和地).

大家都知道洁面产品呢,有很多种,下面我们把洁面细分成四种质地日常洁面,眼部卸妆,面部磨砂,和二次清洁爽肤水。

Cold Creams/Cleansing Creams(洗面奶)

Cleansing creams are often heavy oil-based creams designed to remove heavy or theatrical(戏剧的,舞台的) makeup. They are good for drier and more mature(成熟的) skins, because they will leave the skin feeling moist(潮湿的) and supple. They remove dry, flaky(薄的) skin gently.

Cleansing Milks(洗面乳)

Cleansing Milks (cleansing lotions, emulsions(乳状液体)), the most common form of cleanser in use today, remove makeup as well as oil, dirt and other impurities (表面污垢). They may have a slightly alkaline(碱性) base in order to clean the skin properly and thoroughly.

Cleansing Washes(洗面剂)

Cleansing Washes are cream, milk or paste(膏状) formulations that are used in the same manner as a soap. However, depending on theingredients(配方), they may or may not remove makeup. They should then follow up with a toner.

Cleansing Gels(洗面啫喱)

A Cleansing Gel is either a gel or clear-liquid formulation that is used in the same manner as a soap. Cleansing gels can be much milder(温和) than soaps. As such, it is best for normal to oily skin types and is ideal as a body cleanser orshaving lubricant (胡须润滑剂)for men or women. It should be followed up with a toner.

Eye-Makeup Removers (眼部卸妆液)

The extensive use of eye makeup, especially waterproof(防水的) products, has created a need for cleansing products specifically formulated to dissolve(溶解) eye makeup from the delicate tissues (精细的组织) around the eyes. 

Facial Scrubs(面部磨砂)

Facial Scrubs (cleansing scrubs(清洁磨砂膏)) are products that are to be used occasionally (偶尔地) according to the customer’s skin type.  Facial scrubs are not recommended for very mature(成熟的), sensitive or acneprone(粉刺的) skin. 

Toners(爽肤水)/Lotion(化妆水)

A toner’s function is to remove any oil, dirt, makeup and excess cleanser after the skin has been cleansed, and to restore(恢复) the skin’s natural pH balance. The toner will also help to stimulate blood circulation as it tightens the pores(收紧毛孔) and minimizes oil breakdown(减少油脂分解).

以上呢就是目前我能想到的洁面产品们, 

◆ ◆ ◆

 Moisturizing Products (保湿产品)

Moisturizers are commonly used after the skin has been cleansed and toned. Moisturizers work in three ways:

 They immediately(立即地) add water to the skin.

 They form a barrier (形成一个屏障)on the skin, which slows the evaporation (蒸发,流失)of water from deep in the skin.

 It adds ingredients(原料,原素) to the skin that can help improve the skin’s condition.

这个趴呢就是在讲我们最最最熟悉的面霜啦,我相信大多数人和粉猪一样,在小时候还不知道爽肤水是什么的时候,就开始擦孩儿面,强生等“香香”了。保湿霜超多种的,比如质地厚重的乳液,有这么特殊功效的面霜(日霜,晚霜,宝宝油,美白霜等等等)这里呢,我就不多提最基础的保湿霜了,仅挑三种主要用于熟龄肌肤的功能霜聊一聊。

Nourishing Creams(滋养霜)

Nourishing Creams are meant for dry, very dry and mature skins that lack oils. As oil production slows down with age, there is less natural lubrication for the skin’s surface.

Nourishing creams can contain specialized ingredients(专门的成分) that help to lubricate(润滑) and soften the skin, and leave a protective film(保护膜).

滋养霜对大大大干皮和熟龄肌肤超级友好哦,毕竟随着年纪的增长,我们皮肤里的油脂会越来越少(内脏里的不算)。。。

Wrinkle Creams(除皱霜)

Wrinkle Creams are meant to work by diminishing(减少) the length, width and depth of the line and by giving the skin a firmer(紧致), smoother(光滑) appearance.

It is commonly known that all good moisturizing products temporarily diminish the appearance(出现) of fine lines. 

除皱霜是通过减弱皱纹的长度,宽度,和深度来使皮肤的表面看起来更紧致和光滑。众所周知,好的保湿产品都有助于暂时的紧致肌肤,但有些产品会宣称自己可以长期有效的达到想要的效果。

Firming Creams(紧肤霜)

Most Firming Creams are meant to give the elasticity(弹性) of the skin more tone and improved contour(轮廓). Because the formulation of most firming creams is very rich, they are best for normal-to-dry, dry, very dry and mature skin types.

一句话,对于熟龄肌肤,最好的就是紧肤霜了。

◆ ◆ ◆

Special Treatment Products (功效性产品)

Eye Creams

These creams are the only products that should be applied around the eyes, richer moisturizers and night creams could result in swelling(肿胀)irritation(刺激)whiteheads (白头)and redness(发红)

眼霜是唯一可以被用在眼部周围的产品,但因其富营养要适量使用,不然会出现皮肤吸收不了的各种问题。除非是专为白天设计的眼霜,通常眼霜只适合夜晚使用。

Essence/Serums(精华)

It contains ingredients(成分) that are thought to be highly effective skin moisturizers. These serums give the skin an immediate glow(发光) and tightness(紧致), which leaves it smooth and supple(光滑柔嫩).

Sun Protection(防晒)

Products These are one of our best defences(防御) against the essentially irreversible(不可逆转的) photo-aging(光老化) effects of the sun.
