About This Quiz

Put your makeup savvy to the test with this quiz!

Do you think you have what it takes to put on the perfect face? Then see how sharp your contour is with this quiz! Long before the days of Sephora, people wanted to look their best, leading to the use of all sorts of ingredients in cosmetics we would never touch today. Over the centuries, people have used urine, sweat and even lead-based face paint, which would damage the skin more the more it was worn. While today we have countless more diverse and non-toxic options, it can be overwhelming figuring out exactly what to do in order to get that flawless face.   

While many people love makeup, not everyone who wears it is was trained in it, and that's part of what makes it fun. However, when it comes to finding the right shade of foundation or forgetting to blend products, many people are guilty of simple mistakes. Some makeup sins which seem tiny can make a big difference, throwing your whole face out of balance and maybe even aging you years and years.     

If you are makeup-savvy and know how to put your best face forward, then put your knowledge to the test with this colorful quiz!
