While it might not have been the very first personality test, the Myers-Briggs test is world-renowned for its accuracy when detailing unique characteristics of human personalities. The four-letter naming system is simple yet precise, and can pinpoint different aspects of your work habits, romantic life, or even your parenting style.
It turns out, this test is also a great indicator of the right makeup for your personality! Here is a detailed list of the sixteen personality types with characteristics that determine which new makeup product you should try next.
ISTJ – Calm, Quiet, Responsible
While your introverted nature often means you are quieter than others, your decision-making skills and responsible character result in accuracy and dedication.
Try a richly pigmented eyeshadow palette that focuses on neutrals colors that make it easy to create classic yet stunning everyday eye makeup. Depending on your skin tone, bronze + gold tones or blue + plum tones are the best basic colors.
INFJ – Visionary, Idealist, Creative
Helping others and volunteering is a passion of yours, a result of your idealistic and visionary personality. Finding ways to express your creativity regularly keeps you happy and productive.
Step out of your comfort zone and try a set of luxe fake eyelashes. Express your creative side and your idealistic beliefs simultaneously with vegan falsies that last longer than a single wear.
INTJ – Innovative, Thinkers
Your relentless intellectualism drives your ambition and your endless curiosity. You like to design and execute your plans yourself, always finding ways to make things more interesting.
Integrate your precision and attention to detail by getting a complete brush collection that includes all the essential tools for flawless makeup. For a smart choice, choose a vegan and cruelty-free set that mimics animal hair with better payoff.
ENFJ – Charismatic, Outspoken, Ethical
Passionate, charismatic, and authentic. Your personality is made for strong leadership skills and bringing people together for a common goal, whether through a driven career or purposeful activism.
Be purposeful about your makeup choices and fill your routine with cruelty-free cosmetics. You’ll feel better about the companies you support and look amazing at the same time.
ISTP – Spontaneous, Enthusiastic, Rational
Your curiosity often means getting your hands dirty and wanting to figure out how things work. Exploring ideas through creativity is one of your strength, along with impulsive decisions and valuing freedom.
Your makeup bag is probably full of dozens of products that are fun yet don’t often get used on a regular basis. Liquid matte lipstick is a perfect choice for you. It helps you stand out from the crowd and helps you explore adventurous makeup trends.
ESFJ – Encouraging, Positive, Popular
Were you a cheerleader, class president, or star athlete in high school? If yes, then you definitely fit into your personality type. A social creature by nature, you love supporting the people around you and making sure everyone is happy.
Upgrade your lip routine by trying a hydrating lip gloss that keeps your lips moisturized and shimmery all day. Showcase your warm and sensitive character by choosing a pinky shade with a high-shine finish.
INFP – Reserved, Analytic, Daydreamers
You always look for the best in people, and you are passionate about spreading joy and finding inspiration in the little things. Your idealism is genuine, and you value honor, beauty, and morality.
Tune into your own natural beauty and use a highly pigmented eyeliner in a neutral tone that provides clear definition to your eyes. You’re not a high maintenance person, so choose a waterproof eyeliner that lasts all day without smudging or fading.
ESFP – Theatrical, Friendly, Sympathetic
You may find that anyone else in the room cannot match your energy. Your passionate excitement is contagious, and you love encouraging others around you. Whether recharging with a group of friends or finding yourself center stage, your unique personality makes every day a party.
A natural-looking radiance should match your illuminating personality. Find a multi-dimensional blush that hydrates your skin while revealing an ethereal glow. Don’t get carried away with application — let the rich color speak for itself (just like you).
ENFP – Independent, Intuitive, Driven
Often find yourself making social and emotional connections in a crowd of strangers? You are a free spirit with boundless energy and compassion.
Match your sunny disposition with a sun-kissed complexion with bronzer makeup. Choose a high-performance, ultra-soft formula that blends seamlessly for a natural look.
ESTP – Emotional, Active, Social
Often known to have an impact on your surroundings, you love to be the center of energy. You feed off of others emotions, despise sitting still, and love social butterflies.
If you find your makeup doesn’t measure up to your active and emotional personality, waterproof makeup is your new best friend. Look for products like a waterproof eyebrow pencil or demi-shine eyeliner that last through sweat and tears, without being rough on skin or lashes.
ESTJ – Organized, Traditional, Dedicated
You embrace tradition and organization to a T. You love to organize things and people, often the glue that holds communities and families together.
To match your strong character, a classic lipstick look is a perfect trademark for your makeup style. Choose an updated formula with hydrating ingredients and pigmented color that doesn’t feather or fade. While some things are best left alone, new and improved lipstick is always a must.
ENTJ – Logical, Decision Maker, Opportunistic
A bold achiever and ruthlessly rational, you have the drive to create a common goal and go after it with gusto. Your charisma and confidence can often overwhelm people, but your belief in yourself and your ability to go after your goals with sheer willpower is admirable.
Your logical yet ambitious personality deserves curated perfection. Choose a warm neutrals eye palette that gives you endless options for creativity while harnessing hydrating and smoothing ingredients. Your eyeshadow should perform as highly as you do.
INTP – Brilliant, Creative, Insightful
Innovation is natural to you, from dreamy creativity to intense intellectuality. You love patterns and spot problems easily yet your enthusiasm results in genius solutions.
Your brilliant mind is easily reflected in open and highlighting eye makeup. Choose an eye brightener pen with a creamy formula and flake-free shimmer to provide an instant eye lift and brighten the eyes.
ISFJ – Philanthropy, Warm, Sensitive
Your practical logic and natural responsibility result in accuracy and patience in every aspect of your life, from work to relationships. Impartial to decisiveness, your philanthropy often means you dedicate yourself to causes you care deeply about.
Vegan makeup collections are designed for you, using only clean ingredients and toxin-free formulas. These products often don’t test on animals either, making it a win-win for your caring yet logical character. Brands like Thrive Causemetics donate a product to a woman in need for every product purchased. Follow your heart and support great causes while choosing products that reflect your makeup style.
ENTP – Knowledgeable, Objective, Detailed
While your favorite game is playing devil’s advocate, your love of mental sparring is often a place for you to use your broad knowledge and sarcastic wit. You like to see things from a different perspective and understand arguments from a 360-degree view.
To match your bold traits, waterproof liquid eyeliner is your new favorite makeup essential. Create classically bold looks that off-set your opposition with how perfectly you angled your adventurous winged eyeliner.
ISFP – Approachable, Spontaneous, Wise
The opposite of traditional and structure in every possible way, you feed off of creative inspiration. You despise being put in a box and love exploring new art, relationships, and the world.
Express your creativity with a highly pigmented color stick that you can use on your eyes, lips, and cheeks for ultimate versatility. Potent color expresses your larger-than-life personality, whether you want a sun-kissed glow or a fuller looking lip.
From false eyelashes to sun-kissed bronzer, try out a new makeup essential that beautifully reflects your unique personality.
