Things we never thought we would say: Kim K was not wearing makeup.
On Friday Kim Kardashian posted a preview of her upcoming Vogue Spain cover on Instagram and it’s beautiful. What’s the big deal? She is not wearing makeup. Now maybe that ginormous ring detracts from the change a little bit, but we still think it’s a great look for her. What do you think?
Both of these sentences mean the same thing:
Kim Kardashian is not wearing makeup.
She has no makeup on.
What’s the difference between no and not?
No and not are the two most common words we use to form a negative sentence.
- Use no before a noun phrase to make it negative and means “not any” or “non”:
- She is wearing no makeup.
- I have no money.
- There is no way I’m going to that party.
- Use not with any other phrase or clause to make it negative:
- She is not wearing makeup.
- I didn’t see that coming.
- He is not coming to class today.
Practice time. Choose the best word for each sentence. Good luck!
