Ich schminke mich lieber als er sich.

is this incorrect or correct?

  • German -

    not really.

    Ich schminke mich lieber als ...
    means
    I would rather put make-up on myself than ...

    the "als er sich" sounds very clumsy and awkward and I cannot tell what you are trying to say.

    Can you state the English sentence that you are trying to translate?

  • German -

    there is none. im trying to determine if that sentence is grammatically correct or incorrect.

  • German -

    This IS grammatically correct, but it sounds weird (no offense :P).
    It means "I would rather put on make-up than he would", more or less. There would be better-sounding ways to say this although it is correct.
