A substance that comes in powdered, liquid, gel, or cream form and usually consists of talc, glitter, carnuba wax and parfum. Some forms of makeup include eyeshadow (colored powder usually containing glitter that is applied to eye area), lipstick (a solid stick of carnuba wax and pigment applied to lips), nail polish (a colored enamel-like paint that dries into a hard surface that is applied to nails), foundation/powder (goop and powder the same hue as human skin that is sponged and brushed onto face to hide imperfections), and lip gloss (a usually gel-like substance usually containing a shimmer powder that is applied to lips to give sheen). Many cosmetic companies include Clinique, Maybelline, Urban Decay, Jane and MAC.

Makeup is usually colored in different hues based on the type it is. Blue/silver is a common color for eyeshadow, while a range of red and pink (mimicking lips's natural color) are most commonly found in lipstick.
If you want a translation, makeup is a bunch of scented glitzy colored shit that some people apply to their ugly mug hoping it enhances their looks (usually fails) or just to be "girly."
Makeup is used most often by pre-teens, teeny boppers, whores, valley girls, metrosexuals, bloated old housewives, and in other words any other form of ditzy, stuck-up human being that goes to the mall more that 4-5 times a week, if often seen chewing Hubba Bubba bubblegum, and swoons over prettyboys (see pretty boy) like Justin Timberlake.

See ugly bitch trying to look pretty
Fugly girl: Hold on, I have to, like, apply my makeup.
Someone else: Um... you DO know that you look like a fugly bimbo with that shit on your face as well as off.

Fugly girl: I like this blue eyeshadow, it really brings out the color of my eyes. Do you think this purple-hued lipgloss will help enhance the natural pout of my luscious rose-toned lips?

Someone else: Whatever. Bitch.

Something that women put on their faces because they have some weird misinterpretation that make-up makes them look prettier. On the contrary, most women look better without make-up on, and all women look terrible if they use too much make-up.
Girl 1: Hey
Girl 2: You look so pretty with all of that make up on!!!

Guy: *throws up*
a girls savior substance!!!

Gels, liquids, and powders applied to the face. These include, but are not limited to lipstick, mascara, lip gloss, eyeshadow, eyeliner, foundation and the like. Prices range from a few dollars to fifty dollars and up depending on the brand. They are used to express oneself, but some people believe that they actually need to wear cosmetics to look "pretty". A tip: Less is more. FYI, if one takes care of their skin, they won't need to wear any makeup.
Her makeup looks so thick!
