About This Quiz

In the world of beauty, there are five basic face shapes. Whether your face is stadium-shaped, oval-shaped or any of the others, it's only part of your face's story. During this quiz, we're going to ask you to tell us all about the features that make you the recognizable human that you are. After we get a good mental picture of your appearance, it will be easy to determine what it says about your heart. 

Just like your eye color gives you certain personality traits, your face shape carries a lot of the reason you are the way you are. Those with pear-shaped faces are said to be deep thinkers, and those with square face shapes are said to be reliable. But, we think it goes deeper than that. You are more than just the shape of your melon — you are the sum or your face's whole! 

When you read your questions, take a look in the mirror before you respond. Make sure you're accurately choosing the option that suits you best. We wouldn't want to misread your facial expressions and give you the wrong assessment! Will your description of yourself lead us to being able to see inside your soul? Look us in the eyes and find out!
