About This Quiz

Just as clothing and hair trends change all the time, so do makeup trends. If you are still trying to grow out your '90s brows to suit the on-trend full brow of 2019, you know just how fast things can flip on their heads in the world of beauty! One decade your eyeshadow should match your clothing, and the next decade everyone is raving about warm neutrals and a more minimal look. Do you know if you wear your lipstick more like a pinup girl or a grunge icon? Is your look more Marilyn Monroe or Courtney Love? Let's see if we can guess! 

Every makeup lover has their likes and dislikes, but do you know which era yours match up with best? Are your tastes those of a modern-day Instagram baddie or an old-school Hollywood screen siren? Or do you fall somewhere in the middle? Where you like to apply eyeliner might just reveal your true makeup era! After all, it's all in the details!
