Here is a list of reflexive verbs. How many do you know?

Acostarse –  to go to bed

Afeitarse – to shave

Bañarse – to take a bath (to take a shower in Mexico)

Cepillarse (los dientes, el pelo…) – to brush (your teeth, your hair…)

Depilarse – to remove hair from your own body (using any method)

Dormirse – to fall asleep

Ducharse – to take a shower

Irse – to leave

Lavarse (la cara, las manos…) – to wash (your face, your hands…)

Levantarse – to get up

Llamarse – to “be named”

Maquillarse – to put on makeup

Mirarse – to look at yourself

Peinarse – to comb your hair

Ponerse – to put something on

Quedarse – to stay/to remain

Quitarse – to take something off

Sentarse – to sit down

Sentirse – to feel

Vestirse – to get dressed

Remember: to conjugate them (in any tense), we drop the se and the ar/er/ir ending, we add the tense’s specific ending, and we also add the pronoun right before the verb:

Presente:

Cada día me levanto, me lavo la cara, me peino, me maquillo y me visto.

Pretérito perfecto:

Ayer me levanté, me lavé la cara, me peiné, me maquillé y me vestí.

Pretérito imperfecto:

Antes yo siempre me levantaba, me lavaba la cara, me peinaba, me maquillaba y me vestía.

Futuro (con ir)

Mañana me voy a levantar, me voy a lavar la cara, me voy a peinar, me voy a maquillar y me voy a vestir.

(Since we have a “two verb construction,” in this case we can also place the pronouns at the end.)

Mañana voy a levantarme, voy a lavarme la cara, voy a peinarme, voy a maquillarme y voy a vestirme.
