About This Quiz

Are you a fan of natural beauty or addicted to a full glam face? Do you love a classic red lip, all matte everything or as much dewy, glossy shine as possible? Maybe your taste in makeup gives you away, but maybe you're an old soul with retro tastes and a look that's a blast from the past. Every generation has their own takes on beauty, fashion and style. Every decade the trends change, with new innovations and interesting throwbacks. They say that the trends of 20 years ago almost always come back into fashion (and the same can be said for the world of makeup.)

Whether you're a liquid lipstick lover or someone who likes their creamy nude lipsticks straight from the bullet, let us see if we can correctly gauge your age from your makeup loves!  So is red your most daring color? Do you prefer eyeliner in marker or pencil form? Do you live and die by your beauty blender? Do you think a beauty blender is a kitchen appliance?  Tell us what you wear every day and how much glitter you can handle, and we'll see if we can guess your age!
