About This Quiz

We all should have a signature look. It tells the world how we want to be viewed. Sultry, flirty, flashy or natural beauty. Once that choice is made, it informs many of our other decisions, such as choosing clothes, hats, purses, shoes and hairstyles. You can see how important a signature style can be. That's why BEFORE you choose, you need to take this quiz. You'll learn about different makeup motifs throughout the decades and learn which era accents your features best. 

Take the 1910s, when one would wear a sheer wash of color for a very natural, fresh look. Or you may see yourself in the Roaring Twenties, wearing a dark, smokey eye and a flapper outfit. Or, fast forward to the 1980s, when glitter, color and shine were the eye-catching standard. Naturally, you'll want to make the chosen look your own, but selecting a makeup option that was embraced by so many women because it worked can be very helpful.   

In this quiz, you'll be asked a series of questions about your beauty routine, your likes and dislikes among various styles, and your personality traits, to see if you can pull off certain looks.  Once we have these answers, we'll match them  to a specific era of makeup. Take the quiz now and add chic to your list of attributes!
