7 Makeup Looks That Say a Lot About Your Personality
Like many forms of self expression, makeup is more than meets the eye. Every makeup choice is a personal reflection of who we are as people — whether we prefer a strong cat eye, minimal mascara, a bold red pout or no lipstick at all. Ahead, find seven personality types that are easily reflected in how you wear your makeup — from the makeup beginner to the avid collector and everything in between.
If you find yourself scrolling through Instagram during every free moment you have, you’re The Enthusiast when it comes to the makeup-verse, and you love a classic cult brand. The NYX Professional Makeup Swear By It Palette is going fulfill a lot of your enthusiast dreams — and you can finish off your eye look with a swipe of a cult-favorite mascara like the Lash Paradise.
Ah, the most O.G. of makeup personalities: the classic. You like your makeup organized, and you stick to what works best for you — including a little flicked out liner and a soft pink lip. These two products are super harmonious for your classic style because they simply work with everything, and they’ll fit you comfortably too.
For the aspirational makeup guru, The Collector is your calling. You love a limited edition powder or a fancy lipstick — which is why the Starlight Sparkle La Rose powder will make it into your next Instagram in an instant, and your lips will be elevated with the Slim Matte Lipstick by YSL.
If you’re a little bit of a makeup rookie, we’d call you The Curious. You want to explore bold makeup looks, but you want to smart small, and the Urban Decay Naked Flushed is a perfect way to do so. In addition to this soft contour, might we also recommend the Giorgio Armani Liquid Lip Vibes 409 — a universal red which you’re bound to love on your pout.
You love to try new things, and every makeup launch is saved in your Google cal. Since ever-changing blood runs through your veins, your ultimate combination is a duo of newness: cue, the new Maybelline Snapscara mascara and the cult-favorite Urban Decay Naked Cherry.
If you like to play around with your makeup routine everyday, you fall into our makeup innovator category. You love a monochrome makeup look, but you want it to stand out and make heads turn, which is why this NYX eye gloss and Maybelline lippie are for you to test out together. The deep red of the gloss will bring out the vampy depth of the lipstick, and you’ll become a cosmetic shapeshifter right before your own eyes.
The Natural loves her makeup minimal, but does enjoy to enhance her natural features. For a little definition, we recommend reaching for the Pro Last Liner in Black to bump up your eyes and finish off the face with a nude, opaque glossy finish — NYX Slip Tease is a crowd pleaser for this.
