Beauty Talk Lingo

I just realized that MUFE stood for Make Up Forever. I kept thinking, "what is this MUFE brand everyone keeps talking about?"  Boy, do I feel like an idiot!  Anyway, what are some other abbreviations and phrases that get used on the boards here that newbies (or semi-newbies like myself) should know?

Yeah, I didn't get any of it and for the longest time, I thought MUA = kiss, like the sound you make when you do a big fake kiss *muua*....except I know that's not right but was too lazy to ask. And I was confused for the longest time whenever I see CS cuz I think of computer science (my field) when it's actually customer service. Usually a quick google provides answer to most of the abbreviations, unless it's the username of a poster, lol.

Is MUA Make Up Academy or Makeup artist?

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

Hi, prosopon!  As everyone else has said, you're not alone; we've all been through the learning curve.  For me, it was HG, BT, and Cast Member.  Cast Member is what the sales person at Sephora is called.

Is BT Beauty Talk?

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

When I first joined beauty talk, I went crazy trying to track down this awesome 'mufe' brand, so ur not alone! That was my only big one...

 

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

When I got on here I thought MUFE and Makeup Forever were two different brands until someone used both in the same post haha. I know someone asked about MUA in a recent post, that stands for Makeup Artist. I've seen SA being used recently, I think that stands for sales associate.

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

I went through the exact same thing lol.  I think most of the others have already been mentioned.  The only other lingo I've seen used is text speak, mainly LOL.  

 

I don't think I've seen SMH (Shakin' My Head) used on here.  It took me a while to figure it out when I saw it on Facebook.  It took me even longer to figure out HMU (Hit Me Up) lol.  

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

Don't feel like an idiot no one on here thinks that if you don't know something this is a learning process and a lot of fun:smileyhappy: I don't think that there is not anyone on here that doesn't learn something new everyday!:smileywink:

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

I spent a great amount of time figuring out what "HG" stands for, before realizing that it was "Holy Grail". You would not believe other versions that were popping up in my head, LOL.

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

Lol.  Thank you! That was another one I was wondering about.

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

HD=High Definition

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

I didn't get MUFE either right away :smileywink:  Here are some other ones:

 

UDPP= Urban Decay Primer Potion

Naked 1 or Naked 2= Urban Decay Naked Palettes

tm= tinted moisturizer

BT=Beauty Talk

 

That's all I can think of right now.  Hope that helps!

 

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

Just today i realized what BT stands for.. haha

Re: Beauty Talk Lingo

Don't feel like an idiot, MUFE caught me unawares also! UD = Urban Decay is the only other one that I can think of at the moment.
