It’s no secret that Sephora is the place to go for all of our beauty needs, from blush to bronzer and well beyond. The classic black and white logo is the calling card for any girl who knows her stuff in the makeup world and beyond, and if we step inside those hallowed halls, we're bound to come out with our wrists covered in an array of colorful test swatches and our arms laden down with bulging bags of new products that we simply couldn’t resist.
With all of those bottles and brushes and other beautiful things filling counters and shelves as far as the eye can see, it takes some time to get to know our way around our makeup and other beauty needs at the store. However, there are some basics that most girls are sure to use every day, even if they aren’t YouTube beauty gurus or professional makeup artists. If we know our way around a Sephora counter and have strong opinions about the correct way to contour or which brands make the best red lip, this quiz is the place for us to show off our beauty brains!
1What product leaves us feeling fresh and secure all day with no worries that our full face is going to wear away?
We've all glanced in the mirror around lunchtime and realized that all of the makeup we woke up early to carefully apply is nowhere to be seen. That’s every girl’s nightmare! When we want our makeup to stay put but don’t want to look like we've layered it on with a shovel, there’s one product that is our best friend and leaves a matte finish to hide that telltale shine of sweat or oil. It doesn’t alter the color of our carefully applied face of makeup. Which one does the trick?
