About This Quiz
Knowing a little bit about beauty products can take you a long way. Knowing which product is best used for which application is a great start, and it can help you pass this quiz. Understanding how to apply said beauty products will definitely get you a better score as well, but you don't have to be a beautician to pass this quiz (although, it does help). If you've seen YouTube tutorials and beauty hacks that are all over the Internet, you'll probably be able to guess most of these answers, but can you do get them right if you're distracted? As human beings, it is impossible to think about two things at once (you may be able to think of two different things around the same time, but not at the exact same time) and distractions are designed to weaken your concentration (which is what you'll need to ace this quiz).
You may think you know beauty, but we are putting a twist on this quiz. We want to distract you with the pecs, gorgeous eyes, chiseled jawlines and award-winning smiles of some of the most gorgeous men on the planet. Do you think you're up for the challenge? What are you waiting for? Start answering questions to see if you can ace this bad boy.
