About This Quiz

Makeup, sometimes referred to as cosmetics, has been said to have originated over 5,000 years ago when the Ancient Egyptians used dark eyeliners and shadows to enhance their appearance. 

Today, it is still being used for the same purpose but is available in a much wider variety. The most popular types available include lipsticks, stains, and glosses; foundations, concealer, and highlighters, as well as eyeshadows and liners. 

Whether it is MAC, Colour Pop, Tarte, Urban Decay, or higher end brands such as Lancome, Tom Ford, Christian Dior, or Marc Jacobs, everyone has that one particular item, without which, their final look is incomplete. Some people even go as far as buying two of the same product so that they can have one at home and one in the handbag.

Are you able to go through life without ever being able to use eyeliner again, or will it be something else like a bold lipstick, a neutral eyeshadow palette, or the perfect rosy blush? The only way to find out which if these it will be is to take this quiz! When you're done, ask your fellow makeup loving friends to take it and see where they stand.
