About This Quiz

Makeup and its techniques are only evolving as the world progresses, and why shouldn't it? We've gone from a simply drawn thin eyebrow of the 20s to strobing and from a simple dab of rouge to contouring the entire face, neck and collarbone. 

And while there's nothing wrong with evolution, it can be hard to keep up with everything that's going on in 2018. From Kim Kardashian's contour sticks to Rihanna's body lava, there's just so much that we need to know these days. So we want to test whether you've been keeping up with the times or if the beauty train left you at the stop. 

Do you know which color eyeshadow goes the best with blue eyes? Do you know what kind of foundation is the best for each type of skin? Do you know the names of the makeup brands that have come to be known as drugstore makeup? And do you know exactly where you should apply your blush? 

If you think you know how to answer these questions, then go ahead and start our quiz. We'll truly know if you've got what it takes to be a beauty influencer by the end, or if you should stick to watching YouTube tutorials.
