    9. You'd much rather just stick to your usual routine, which after years of practice, takes less than 10 minutes and gives you flawless results every time.

    12. Yet you pretty much end up staying with your comfort zone and opting for a slightly different shade from your usual.

    14. But because you don't like doing the millions of the steps it takes to get results, you've learnt to use your problem areas to your advantage.

    15. You're always jealous of people who can pull of a variety of looks so easily.

    16. And whose makeup collections are so incredibly organised.

    17. When you have to look extra fancy for a big event you choose to spend time on your hair rather than your makeup.


    Because there is no way you're spending lots of time on both, and we all know hair is the tougher job of the two.

    18. So you've learnt how to "hack" the makeup game.
