I’ve always been fond of writing and words, but the fascination has not crossed over to slang. When I was younger, I think, I did manage to speak the way my peers did. New terms have been cropping up now and then and I’m left baffled by what they mean.
One of the many terms that piqued my interest to read through and learn about slang is the ubiquitous “on fleek.” Up until the other day, I did not know that it meant “perfect.” The same goes for “on point,” which is the same as “on fleek.”
Searching for the meaning of those words led me to reading about other beauty/makeup slang.
After a quick browse through Urban Dictionary, I learned the following terms.
We also have a lot of beauty slangs in Tagalog, but I only remember a couple.
Founding anniversaries of schools are celebrated in most every part of our country so most people, if not everyone, is familiar with the term “happy foundation day.” It’s commonly used these days to refer to something different from what it was originally coined for. When you see someone who has cake-y foundation, it means they’re having a “happy foundation day.”
What beauty/makeup slang do you know and use?
