About This Quiz

Makeup is an art form that was given to us thousands of years ago. The Egyptians, who mastered eyeliner, had no idea how much of a fashion statement this method would become in the future. And because of the past influences our present, we've modernized more than a few "historical techniques" for our uses in makeup today. But we're not here to talk about history, as fun as that can be. We want to know what your makeup preferences are right now and in return for your time, we'll guess whether you're more logical or emotional.

Will your favorite methods tell us that you think things through before giving your opinion or forming a conclusion? Will they tell us that you're so emotional that sometimes you cry your makeup off in the process of applying it? Or will you be a perfect balance of logic and emotion? Maybe your logical or emotional side will depend on your situation at the time.

If you want to know whether you're ruled by your brain or your heart, or something in between, it's time to take this quiz.
