When I was younger, my favorite fashion magazine feature was always the illustrious personality quiz. Whether it was figuring out if the hottie in math class was secretly was crushing on me or deciding what I should be for Halloween, I could always count on my favorite monthlies to provide me with all the knowledge a girl could need. In college, life has undoubtedly gotten a bit more complicated... Therefore, of course nostalgia brought me right back to craving all of of life's answers.
While perhaps not the most serious of life dilemmas, the idea of having a beauty icon can be a ton of fun. With a style icon, whenever you need inspiration, you can simply go online or open a magazine and think... what would (insert your fierce icon here) wear?! A beauty icon acts the same way, except she is your muse when it comes to makeup and hair.
So, are your curious to find out who your beauty icon should be? Take the quiz below to find out!
