About This Quiz

Do you know what the best part of the morning is? No, it's not waking up early or walking to your car while it's still dark outside. It's your everyday makeup routine! And what better way to turn that morning frown upside down than with some eyeshadow, foundation, blush and lip products. But before you apply these types of products on, there's one thing in the makeup world that doesn't get nearly enough credit.

We're talking about primer. You know, the stuff that is supposed to smooth out your skin and enhance the overall finish of your face products. Some people don't use it or need it, but it all depends on a person's skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, then a silicone-based primer can reduce the size of the pores on your face while adding a lightweight finish. Or maybe you have super dry skin, which calls for a hydrating primer that has a long-lasting finish. Overall though, primers can enhance your skin tone, texture and makeup finish that will get you ready for the day ahead. So, if you're curious about which makeup primer matches your morning routine, it's time to take this beauty quiz now!
