    she is making her face?


    She is making her face. (1)
    She is putting makeup on her face. (2)

    There two sentences. When I said "sentence(1)" at some picture, native corrected my sentence(1) into sentence(2).

    So, my question is... Does sentence(1) hear awkward to American? or is it a incorrect sentence?
    Otherwise, Is there any difference between two sentences?

    Please let me know. Thank you.^^

    ' ^^ ' means ' :) ' in Korea...haha!

    She's putting on her makeup.
    She's putting on makeup.

    Colloquially, you'll hear "She's putting on her face" too.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
