About This Quiz

They say you can tell a lot by a man's shoes, but the best way to get to know a woman is to get to know her makeup bag! We are not sure who says that (and we know plenty of men that wear makeup). In any event, let's go shopping for a brand new bag of tricks, and we'll be able to tell you what percentage high maintenance you are. 

Are you the type that needs three different eyeliners to get the job done? Or are you okay with an old-fashioned pencil and sharpener? The things you put into your new makeup bag will tell us many things about your personality and the way you live. Most importantly, you will get the opportunity to learn where you fall on the maintenance scale. 

Your best friend might already know the answer, but we tend to view ourselves as normal, no matter what. By the time you've visited a few makeup counters with us, your percentage will be as clear as a defrizzing hair serum. Will you score as high or as low on the maintenance scale as you think? Fill up a makeup bag, and we'll let you know!
