Hi and welcome to the Les bears dot com podcast.

This podcast is for extensive English listening.

So every day I'll make a new podcast about a different topic.

That way you can hear lots of different vocabulary and you don't have to listen too long.

Two or three minutes at best.

Hi.

Welcome to the Les Paris podcast today.

This is episode 277.

I want to talk about cosmetics today.

I don't know what it is about cosmetics, but I don't really like them, to be honest.

Do you like cosmetics if you're a woman? I'll bet you like cosmetics.

If you're a guy, you probably have mixed feelings.

Some guys like him.

Some guys don't.

Of course.

Now, after uh seeing many, many people with cosmetics on and with them off, let's say makeup.

Now, people with makeup on and people not wearing makeup, I have to say it's probably a pretty good idea.

People, some people need makeup.

That's a rude thing to say.

I won't tell you if you need makeup, don't worry about it, but some people don't need makeup.

There was a woman that I saw.

No, not in real life.

I saw her on TV.

She was terrible.

I couldn't believe it.

Her name was Tammy Baker and she had makeup caked on her face.

She looked like uh she wasn't human anymore.

On the other hand, I've also seen people without makeup and sometimes they can be pretty rough looking.

Makeup can smooth out the cracks and blemishes on your face and make you look much more appealing.

On the other hand, why do you need makeup? Where is that inner glow that really helps you appeal to others without relying on, shall we say plastic? I don't like makeup at all.

I wish we didn't have it.

I think that just letting your inner spirit shine through would be a little bit better thing for most people.

Of course, that's harder.

It's easier to just fork out the money and slap on the makeup, the cosmetics uh that's a little bit rough, but in fact, it is easier.

I have to say one more thing the most beautiful woman I ever saw and I only saw her for about five minutes.

She had no makeup.

She was at the bottom of a climb.

We were gonna go up to Mount, climb a mountain.

It was a rock climb, a long rock climb and she arrived like one minute after us, but her boyfriend was there ahead of us and they had taken the route we wanted to climb.

She sat down and smiled and it was ok that they got the route instead of us because she was just so beautiful.

So I think if you can give live your life without makeup, you're gonna be better off.
