About This Quiz

Makeup, while meant to enhance natural beauty, is also a medium people use to express themselves. YouTube is full of beautiful people demonstrating seemingly unattainable ways to apply makeup flawlessly. While these videos aren't for everyone, they're definitely good at shedding light on makeup brands that you might have never heard of before or demonstrating whether a luxe brand is worth its price tag. Since there's so many brands out there, it's nice to have resources to help guide you towards ones just right for you.

But even after you narrow down the list, you could be presented with still too many options. So how can you decide? Simple. Look to see if the brands remaining on your list offer you everything you want out of makeup. Usually, once you find a brand you like, you stick with it and use it exclusively. Maybe one brand has mascara you like but not foundation, or all the lipstick colors or eyeshadow colors of one brand are a bit too bland for you. Taking a color test will really help, as it can guide you in the right makeup direction. This is that color test! Take it now and we'll give you a makeup brand to buy.
