About This Quiz

As you can imagine, many cultures throughout the centuries have claimed to have created makeup, whether it be the Egyptians with their kohl liner or the Chinese with their lightly painted geisha faces. We're not here to prove either of them right. Instead, we're emphasizing how long the art form has been in existence. Since then, a lot has changed, although the basics remain the same - we still cover our faces (in foundation) and still like out eyes with kohl pencils. But what do you know about these techniques? Could you tell us what these makeup products and items are and are used for?

In this quiz, we're going to test you on the products you should know, especially if you want to call yourself an expert. So tell us what highlighters are meant to do and who invented the kabuki brush. Tell us about bronzers and concealers and what setting sprays do. Tell us all about face primers, brow pomades and just what it is micellar water does. By the end, we'll know if you can really call yourself a pro, or if you need to go back to Makeup 101.
