We all like to test the waters on trends from time to time, but more often than not, we adopt a “signature” look that we find ourselves reaching for almost daily. It could be a bold lipstick choice or a cat eye, but whatever it may be, it’s about as tied to our personalities as our clothing choices or hairstyle. What does your personal makeup choice say about you?
Whether you go for red, pink or something more unexpected, a girl who favors a statement lip above all other makeup also likes the spotlight. A statement lip is bold and impossible to ignore, but it’s also a total “look” in one step, which implies that you probably have some other tricks up your sleeve, too.
You’re low-key and no-fuss, but you also know what your best features are and exactly how to play them up. You like to look like yourself, but you also like to look put-together, which is why you prefer natural makeup—foundation applied with a light hand, corrective concealer, a bit of shadow or gloss—over a bare face.
Subtlety isn’t really your thing, but you still like to fly slightly under the radar rather than stand out from the crowd at first glance. A smoky eye is sexy and dramatic but not over-the-top, which describes you to a tee. You don’t need to be the center of attention, but hey, you certainly wouldn’t mind.
They’re called cat eyes for a reason: You’re sneaky, introspective, and a little bit more calculated than most, but not in a bad way. Let’s just say you don’t miss a trick. You also have above-average patience and tactical skill, which is the only means by which to explain the time and effort you take to execute the perfect winged liner every morning.
You may not have much time to apply makeup each day, but it doesn’t really make that much of a difference to you. You don’t mind showing your bare skin to the world, so long as you’ve got a little bit of emphasis on your eyes, you’re good to go. They are the windows to the soul, after all.
