Baking, multimasking, overlining, stippling… to non-makeup-junkies, the world of makeup and makeup artistry seems like it has its own different language. And with new trends popping up everywhere you turn, you’ve got to keep up-to-date if you don’t want to get lost in translation!

While staying on top of new makeup trends is part of your job, the same isn’t true for your clients. As a makeup artist, you’re also an interpreter: your clients rely on you to explain the language of makeup to them and answer any of their questions. So not only do you have to know your stuff—you have to be able to explain it, too!

Are you a fluent makeup junkie, or does the difference between tightlining and waterlining leave you scratching your head? Take our quiz to find out!
