Hello!

To say "beautiful" in Ukrainian, pronounce:
PREK-RAS-NIY when it applies to male
PREK-RAS-NAH when it applies to female

Ukr. translation:
when it applies to male
when it applies to female

I hope it will help you.

Another word which is used specifically to describe appearance:

Vrod-LEE-veey ()
Vrod-LEE-vah ()

I think the best possible option is:

(hhar-neey) - masculine adjective
(hhar-nah) - feminine adjective.

In my opinion, PREKRASNYI and WRODLYVYI are used rather in literature than in colloquial language.

So how would you say it in colloquial language? I suppose it would be the translation for something like "hot" or "pretty" or "good looking"...

If you are talking with friends, what would you say?

Are are so beautiful!
Ти така гарна / вродлива! (ty takA hArna/vrodlYva)

You look good!
Гарно / чудово виглядаєш! (hArno/chudOvo vyhlyadAyesh)

Both phrases are fine for colloquial language.
