    cosmetic

    I get a little bit confused about the words 'cosmetic' and 'beautician'. Is it ok to say that 'beautician' works as a 'cosmetic salon'? And is there a more professional word for a beautician?

    thanks in advance

    Hmm... I've never heard of a "beautician" before, but then again I don't really hang out in beauty parlors that much

    cosmetics = makeup
    A cosmetologist applies makeup on somebody to make them more beautiful
    A beautician makes somebody more beautiful by applying makeup or some other method.
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.
