    Question Who here Beats there face?

    Does someone else Beat your face?

    It's a question that will help me understand who is here and what you know.
    Someone beat my face until I looked like a CatFish.

    I’m sorry, are you TESTING us? Some girls here will understand, some won’t. Why does it matter?

    You are leaving a bunch of information out of the equation.
    Please explain.
    Is there some subtle meaning in the word catfish?
    Its almost like reading a coded message TBH.
    If you did get your ass beat then why?
    Did you fight back and make them look like a gar fish?

    It’s a slang term basically for applying makeup perfectly. Common among Drag queens, but becoming common in the general beauty world. Comes from the daubing/patting motion associated with putting on makeup.

    What’s my prize?

    They come up with some weird slang terms these days.
    Why not speak English is my question.

    Thanks Micki, I initially took it as someone with gender dysphoria possibly depressed with their appearance and/or lack of skills physically abusing theirselves (like cutters and etc).

    It kinda makes sense if you think of it in terms of “I DEFEATED my ugly man face and now have created an attractive woman’s face”

    Slang is always pretty wild but is it really any weirder than “Cool”, “Groovy”, or “Gnarly”?

    I get inconsistent results. Sometimes it's near perfect, and others it looks really bad, like a painted up "old lady".

    Micki I get what you are saying and it is just slang and I guess 20 somethings talk like that and know what that meant.
    I learned a new slang term today so thats OK.
    I do beat my face with a sponge and it seems to work getting the make up where it needs to go but I do brush and blend it after beating my face. LOL
    I'm sorry it just sounds funny to me.

    I've had a dislike for slang for a long time now. I don't apply makeup often enough to use advanced techniques that drag queens use.

    First time I have ever heard the phrase. Hopefully the last time too! I have no idea how this will help you understand who is here and what they know. I have a seventeen year old daughter who helps me with translations sometimes. At my advancing age I always thought I had seven decades of life experience to pass on to my kids and grandchildren. Guess grandpa has been left in the dust on this one.

    I agree slang seems senseless at 65 years of age.
    I gave up saying groovy,Far out back in the early 80s Gnarly was always a West Coast term anyway so it didn't apply in my area,
    Say what you mean and mean what you say makes more sense than anything.
    If you want to be understood universally give up on the slang terms.

    I do not follow the latest slang but if that is what it means then..yes, my last effort was done with a sponge applicator but the powder was applied with a brush! I think it looks good for my amateur skills! Humbly Hugs Lana Mae

    I figured it was some term for self harm. Or, perhaps something to do with Beats headphones since the b was capitalized.

    Red face Urban /hipster English;Stipple on makeup in layers,pat on makeup layers

    The general population has been stealing a lot of slang terms from*dragqueens lately. From “throwing shade,” to “serving realness,” we ladies love our gay slang, apparently. ... In the*dragqueen world, to “beat your face”*meansto put on a large amount of makeup to contour*your face.

    If you don't know*your*beauty hashtags or insider terms, you may hear that someone has a "beat face" and immediately start to worry about that person's safety. But "beat face" is actually a term that's been used for decades in the beauty industry to describe perfectly done makeup.

    Kind of childish really.
    Hipster is pretty much out of style I guess because I never see hipsters anymore.
    Heck I'm gay and I didn't even know all that slang LOLOL.
    Have to give that one the Zorro Snap

    I found the only way to "beat my face" was to cover it up completely!

    There r other advantages besides defeating my old, homely male face:

    No one who hasn't met me dressed in person knows what I look like or that I CD.
    I put my face on in 10 seconds.
    I save a fortune in make up and remover costs.
    U can't keep doing the same things over and over and expect to enjoy life to the max. When u try new things, even if they r out of your comfort zone, u may experience new excitement and growth that u never expected.

    Challenge yourself and pursue your passions! When your life clock runs out, you'll have few or NO REGRETS!

    Well, the information here does mean that I learn something new every day.

    An interesting thread as it drew people out to comment either way.

    Miki, you get my award for explaining the question.

    For me I dab and fluff with powder after.

    I think I used to trowel it on years ago.

    No, that did not work.

    Less is better for me.
    Work on your elegance,
    and beauty will follow.

    the slang as meant for people in the clique/SMALL CLUB.it's cliqueish!
    IT'S SO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT IN YOUR SOCIAL GROUP WON'T UNDERSTAND.
    once others outside your group understand what your saying ,you change the slang term to something else.

    for example if i say i beat everybody's face into a catfish you think i am saying something violent and bad when I am actually saying I make them look prettier then they did before.

    cd clique
    dq clique
    ts clique

    Drag queens spend an awful lot of time putting on makeup and it's interesting to see how they do it. It's a big part of what they do for a living. I don't have that amount of free time for beating my face!

    Sounds like it's terminology of their profession more than slang. Anyway, if it's meant to exclude communicating with others that aren't part of your group, it's just one thing I don't like about slang.

    If it's terminology of the trade that's another thing. There's no need for me to understand it because I'm not a pro drag queen.
