About This Quiz

What the HECK is a beauty blender?! In the beauty world, there are thousands of products to choose from. From the basics like foundation to questionable products like a fan brush, how many of these products can you match to the definition? Are you a beauty expert?

Makeup has certainly changed over the years. While women were mostly using foundation, powder, blush, and lipstick, the beauty industry has boomed with a host of new, and sometimes complicated products. 

For many women, their beauty regimen consisted of the face products of foundation and powder, but what about when concealer, bronzer, and highlighter are thrown into the mix?

When dealing with lipstick, they only had to worry about the classic tube. Now there are differences with liquid lipsticks, satin lipsticks, and let's not even get started on the finishes. For something as simple as foundation, now you're stuck deciding if you need a matte or dewy finish. First, do you even know what matte means?

Words like tweezers and mascara are probably easy, but do you know what a palette and blotting papers are? Could you define brow gel?

Just how high is your beauty vocabulary? Are you a beauty expert who could master this quiz or do you need to spend a bit more time watching makeup tutorials?
