Mostly As

Like Grammy-winning artist Alicia Keys, you love the ‘barely there’, natural aesthetic. You also prefer using eco-friendly make-up tools and always make sure your products are vegan and cruelty-free.

Mostly Bs

Hailey Bieber is your beauty bestie! Known for her model perfect skin and dewy look, you both favour the ‘glass skin’ trend and prefer your face looking healthy and hydrated as opposed to a matte look.

Mostly Cs

Just like Zendaya, you enjoy classic and contemporary looks. The ‘soft glam’ aesthetic falls into this category and you make it work every chance you get. But, you’re also not averse to a pop of colour here and there.

Mostly Ds

There’s no halfway mark with you... You’re all in and ready or you’re not leaving the house! Like rapper Megan Thee Stallion, you’re known for your signature lashes, cut creases and wearing the best nails you can come by!
