AUTUMN BUCKET LIST - DAY 3

2 years ago

METTI LA CREMA PER LE MANI


The Italian verb METTERE can be translated with English TO PUT; it's a very common and adaptable verb in this language; it can be used in many different situations and it works perfectly when it's cosmetics or body care time! ;-D

Present tense
IO METTO
TU METTI
LUI/LEI METTE
NOI METTIAMO
VOI METTETE
LORO METTONO

Imperative tense
METTI (TU)
METTETE (VOI)

Here are some examples:

mettere la crema (per le) mani --> (hand cream)
mettere la crema (per il) corpo --> (body lotion)
mettere la crema (per il) viso --> (face cream)
mettere il rossetto --> (lipstick)
mettere il fondotinta --> (foundation)


What I usually do - as soon as Autumn arrives - is putting a sample of hand cream in the bag I use every day so that when I'm out I can be sure my skin is nourished and protected from cracking.

That's why METTERE LA CREMA PER LE MANI is on day 3 of my Autumn Bucket List, the one I've created to welcome my favourite season and to share some Italian learning ;-)
