Hello there, fellow rogues!… Or are you?
For a bit of fun at New Year, I’m bringing you a quiz! If you’ve ever wondered exactly which member of the beauty adventuring party you are, then wonder no longer! Syl is here to help.
Below are the questions: each question is based on a different ‘step’ in a standard beauty routine. You pick the corresponding answer that suits you best for each question, and then tally up the results at the bottom to discover which adventurer you are. :-)
As you’ll probably be able to tell from the tone of questions, this is just a bit of fun for the holidays. The roles are based around some of the the classic stereotypes of the RPG classes: Warrior, Ranger, Rogue, Wizard, Druid and Paladin. There’s even an option for multiclassing, if you find you don’t fit into just one niche.
So have a go, and I hope you enjoy it! Let me know in the comments which result you got! By the way, if you see anything in the pictures that you’d like me to review next, let me know that in the comments as well!
Adventures in Beauty – The Makeup and Beauty Class Adventurer Quiz!
1. What are your thoughts on primers?
A) Eh, I can take them or leave them. Makeup tends to stay put pretty well in cool, dark environments.
B) My foundation will stay by the strength of my spirit alone!
C) Heavy physical exertion is the enemy of pristine foundation – prime me up!
D) Primer is a godsend – the area near my face changes from fireball hot to icy spear cold quite a lot while I’m working…
E) It’s not really my thing – do you have any idea how awkward it is to carry and apply lots of layers when you’re traveling outdoors?
F) Maybe, but only if it’s completely natural! There are some good clay-based ones…
2. So: foundation. What sort of coverage are you looking for?
A) A flawless complexion looks amazing when you’re dressed totally in black – whatever coverage achieves that for me is best!
B) My spirit is pure, and so is my skin, fortuntately. Sheer will do.
C) Well, full coverage is great for the scars, but generally the creatures trying to crush you don’t really mind. Whatever I feel like!
D) Actually, I have a spell that dynamically corrects my coverage.
E) Anything, so long as it’s matte. Or powder-based. I can’t have my dewy forehead glistening and alerting my quarry!
F) Even if I’m having a bad skin day, I still only like a sheer, natural-looking coverage. Maybe medium?
3. Do you use concealer much? Any problem areas?
A) When you stay up late a lot to use the shadows, you get corresponding ones under your eyes. Undereye concealing for me!
B) As I said, my skin is as pure as my spirit. I am fortunate that concealing isn’t really something I have to do.
C) If I want to cover these scars, I’m going to need some really good concealer. If I’m not in the mood to cover them, I’ll go without! Fierce!
D) I have lots of little marks from burns/frostbite/electrical shocks – concealer is a godsend!
E) I like the green concealer for toning down redness – it also matches my working environment!
F) Nobody really needs to conceal their natural appearance. Beauty takes many forms! (Although, when the pimple is *really* huge…)
4. Do you add a little flush to your cheeks?
A) I don’t bother much with blush – the sparkly ones are particularly bad if you’re trying to stay low-key.
B) I have the natural flush that comes from knowing that my life’s cause is just! Blush is unnecessary.
C) I’m generally so flushed from working that blush is a bit redundant. Plus, the bloodstains kind of do the job anyway?
D) I love a good sparkly, shimmery blush. Really adds to that ‘magical’ look. Can I have some highlighter too?
E) Blushes in mauve and brown shades are my favourite – they even double as camouflage when applied oustide the cheek area!
F) Natural flushes in pink and peach are my favourites, especially mineral powders or natural vegetable stains!
5. What’s your take on bronzing and contouring?
A) Bronzing and contouring don’t really show up well in the dark…I use the natural shadows around me!
B) My features are already flawlessly chiseled, and the shining rays of righteousness and hope have already bathed my face in a golden glow!
C) I’ve been known to dabble a bit on the old bronzer/contour. I think it gives a more striking effect on the battlefield!
D) Does it have shimmer? Because I’m totally there if it does. The soot stains from the rituals already do a bit of contouring – does that count?
E) I spend a lot of time outdoors, so I’m fairly bronzed already. Contours are great for camouflage paint though! Especially cream ones…
F) I like them, but only enough that it looks really natural. Blending is key!
6. What’s your favourite product for lips?
A) I love a good bright lipstick. The more unconventional, the better. I answer to no-one, and it makes me feel unstoppable!
B) At most a light stain. My lips are naturally flushed with the purity of my cause. I think.
C) I like a good classic red. Especially matte and opaque. Goes with the bloodstains, makes a strong impression on those around you, stays put!
D) Anything with glitter. Sparkly lipsticks. Shimmery lipsticks, glitter glosses on top of sparkly lipsticks. Actual glitter pressed onto lipstick!
E) I’m a huge fan of the nude lip. Especially a nice, moisturising, long lasting nude lipstick.
F) I like lots of different colours, but they need to be vegan!
7. Eyeshadow: what’s your policy?
A) I love a good smokey eye. Perfect for evening! I must have about a thousand smokey black/grey/taupe/brown shadows!
B) My eyes already burn brightly with zealous fervour, but a little contrasting shadow never hurts to bring out the colour…
C) I like a variety of colours, but it needs to be a good long-wearing cream shadow that will stay put and apply quickly!
D) GLITTER EYESHADOW OMG. It needs to be classy, multidimensional glitter, though. None of this chunky, fallout prone rubbish.
E) I like browns and greens. Matte is a bonus, since I can’t have any sparkly bits getting into my eyes and obscuring my razor keen vision!
F) A natural, everyday palette is best for me. I’m a fan of the no-makeup makeup look when it comes to eyeshadow!
8. Eyeliner: Yea or Nay?
A) A smoked out black liner is my favourite – perfect for nighttime, it’s dramatic and boosts the confidence. What’s not to love?
B) A little bit of gold or silver eyeliner does match my armour wonderfully…metallic eyeliner: armor for the eyes!
C) Did you know people used to wear kohl to help keep the glare out of their eyes? I heard that somewhere – I want to try it on the battlefield!
D) There are so many wonderful, jewel-toned glitter eyeliners out there. My eyes will always sparkle! Did I mention that I like glitter?
E) A good everyday brown liner is my best friend – it needs to wear like iron though, so I prefer a gel formula!
F) Eyeliner just doesn’t look natural enough for me…although, a little bit of flesh tone eyeliner in the waterline does help ‘wake me up’…
9. And mascara?
A) A good black waterproof mascara is a must – dramatic, sultry eyes under all conditions (although it is a bit of a pain to get off).
B) I was blessed with naturally long, curly, thick lashes. Mascara would be gilding the lily somewhat, don’t you think?
C) I can never really be bothered with mascara – it always seems to clump on me and get in my eyes! A quick squeeze with the curlers though, now that makes me look alert!
D) I like the idea of coloured mascara, although they seldom get it right. Have you seen those dramatic, artistic paper false lashes though? Glorious!
E) If I bother, it’s usually brown mascara. I don’t want my eyes to stand out that much and give my position away…
F) I like to try out natural formulae. Some of the usual ones just smell so chemical!
10. Lastly: Favourite skincare item?
A) Running around out in the cold nighttime air and wind wreaks havoc on the complexion. I love a good moisturiser!
B) When you face evil daily, a good exfoliator helps to purify one’s tainted pores and restore one’s righteous glow. Essential!
C) I’ll try anything that helps to soothe scars, cuts, grazes, and sensitive skin. My skin takes a beating…
D) When you work with your hands all the time, weaving the arcane, a beautiful softening, repairing handcream is your best friend.
E) After a day spent lying in the dirt with camouflage paint on, a good strong cleanser is a must.
F) There are a lot of wonderful natural, vegan lip balms out there – you can even make your own. Lovely!
Mostly A: You’re a Rogue!
The shadows, rafters and rooftops are your home. You’re daring, flexible and a bit cheeky, and you know how to work a look to turn the head of every person in the room. If there’s anyone who can pull off a smokey eye AND a bright lip at the same time, it’s you! High dexterity makeup application is your forte, and you always look poised under any conditions.
Mostly B: You’re a Paladin!
Let the others roll their eyes if they want – you know that your purity of spirit and the righeousness of your true and just cause will carry you through anything. Defending the weak and vanquishing evil doesn’t require much makeup – let’s face it, you’re pretty blessed anyway when it comes to your complexion. A little enhancement never hurt anyone, though…you have a weakness for eye products that bolster the natural charisma of your gaze (which is pretty high anyway, but still).
Mostly C: You’re a Warrior!
You work hard and the conditions are tough. Swinging heavy weapons, dodging flying blood and troll entrails – your makeup needs to be practical, hard wearing, and help you to make a lasting impression on those you face on the battlefield. You like looks that are both strong and strength-enhancing. If it matches the colours of your shield, this is a bonus.
Mostly D: You’re a Wizard!
You’re a master of arcane enchantment, illusion and knowledge. You’d like your appearance to reflect your magical nature and skills, and as such you’re a master at carrying off glitter-based looks. No-one can sparkle as elegantly and vibrantly as you! People forget that the person on the originating end of the spell catches some of it too, and fireballs, lightning bolts and icy spears are very hard on the skin. Consequently, you’re also the smartest around at the illusion of minor concealing!
Mostly E: You’re a Ranger!
Stalking your prey silently through the forest, disappearing into the natural environment around you and surviving in the wild are your gifts. You need a makeup routine that fits in with this, and that means no frills, and colours that complement your camouflage. You’re good at multi-tasking with products, achieving natural looks with the minimum of fuss, and eyecatching sparkle and glitter are your worst nightmare. Nude makeup is your specialty!
Mostly F: You’re a Druid!
You are one with nature. Every natural thing is dear to you, and it is the source of your power and skill. You have a strong belief in keeping things as minimal and natural as possible, preferring vegan, organic options and avoiding heavy, concealing makeup and artifical colours. You’re not averse to adding a bit of pigment to your life, though – after all, nature is all about the power of showing your true colours!
Mostly…A bit of Everything? You can Multiclass!
Yes, we’re not confined to just one adventutring class arond here! Maybe you’re an arcane warrior, or a rogueish ranger. Maybe you’re even a Wizrangewarriroguidaladin. You borrow from several different schools of thought when it comes to makeup, and you like variety and choice above all!
Thank you for taking the quiz – I hope it gave you a bit of a chuckle to brighten your brand new year! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, and the best of luck for keeping those resolutions!
Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for traps! Or get the rogue to do it – it’s kind of their job.
