Mostly As: You belong in Dallas.
It’s no secret that everything’s bigger in Texas, the least of which is your hair. From your big hair to your Southern charm, there’s no doubt you’d fit right in in Dallas. You’re huge on humidity-fighting products, like Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Spray and Maybelline Shine Free Oil-Control Loose Powder. And because you’re a bit of a girly girl, you go out of your way to primp and perfect before you head out the door.
Mostly Bs: You belong in Miami.
While the Miami beaches call out to you by day, it’s those South Beach nights that are really off the charts. You never leave the house without applying a water-resistant, non-greasy sunscreen, like Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector Spray Lotion for Body SPF 30. Protecting your skin from the damage of long days in the sun is important to you, but standing out at night might be even more important. This is why you’re a sucker for neon colors and bold looks — salsa dancing has never looked so good.
Mostly Cs: You belong in Chicago.
Whether you’re headed to Wrigleyville for a Cubs game or hitting the bars in Wicker Park, you’ve perfected the girl-next-door style. “Chicago girls are traditional yet sexy, so we love any variation on the classic ponytail,” says Kathryn Hollingsworth, a Chicago-based MDC reader. Flirty and fun, sporty and easygoing, Chicago is the place for you.
Mostly Ds: You belong in San Francisco.
You love your simple, natural beauty routine and live by the philosophy that less is more. You take pride in your strict skincare regimen because having great skin means you can wear less makeup. San Francisco is full of naturally beautiful girls just like you. “The flower child culture of San Francisco has really contributed to a signature beauty look centered around taking care of your skin. It makes all the difference!” says SF-based MDC reader Amanda Huggins.
Mostly Es: You belong in New York City.
You’ve got attitude and edge, and your beauty routine reflects it! You’re not afraid to take risks, but you prefer to run the streets in a bold look rather than a girly one. You tend to highlight one feature while playing others down, which is why you love deep lip colors like Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture in Brun Sienne. And as a girl-on-the-go, your skincare routine is quick and easy — you’re a huge fan of L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes.
Mostly Fs: You belong in Los Angeles.
You’re ready to walk down the red carpet or head to the beach at any given point. You love your blowouts and tan skin, and you never were one to shy away from a colorful makeup trend. “L.A. girls love the glamorous look of contoured cheekbones, glossy lips and lush lashes. I, for one, can't live without full brows, bronzed cheeks and lip gloss,” says Los Angeles dweller Sarah Strid. For an even complexion and beach-ready sun protection, L.A. girls love BB creams like Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream.
