About This Quiz

We all have a certain, special makeup item we just can't live without and for good reason! In the world of smartphones and social media, we can't underestimate the importance of being photo-ready. You seriously never know when someone is going to want to "take one for the 'gram," so it's big critical you're prepped to slay at the drop of a hat. Because, let's be real: a filter can only do so much, my dude. 

That may come across extra AF, but TBH, we'd rather sound a little bougie than having to keep untagging ourselves in photos. Of course, not that anyone needs makeup. Don't get us twisted. You know you're beautiful just the way you are or whatever. But, cosmetics are a fun way to express ourselves, and who doesn't want to play up their best features? Fam, we want to know what makeup item you can't live without.  But, instead of you just straight up telling us, we think we can guess it for ourselves. All you need to do is answer some questions, and at the end, we'll reveal your must-have item. So, what do you say? Let's try to guess what makeup item you can't live without!
