I don’t know about you guys, but I love the idea of astrology and how it interprets our personalities and our true nature. I’m a Sagittarius, and that means I’m very optimistic and I like to try new things. It explains why I love fashion and beauty so much because these two industries are always changing and evolving! Because I love astrology and I have been looking into it a lot lately, AND I love beauty, I thought hey! let’s put these two things together! So I’ve put together a zodiac beauty guide based on each zodiac sign, which could be used as fabulous gift guide for all the beauty junkies in your life.
An Aquarius is someone who is very peaceful, and they are often artists or humanitarians because of their love of nature and things that are beautiful. You’re an Aquarius if you’re born between January 20th and February 18th. For an Aquarius, I’d recommend products with a cause behind them; products that donate to charity or are made with natural ingredients. I’d suggest the Mac Viva Glam Lipsticks because proceeds are donated to charity, or the a Luminizing Powder by Honest Beauty, who donates proceeds to the Girls Who Code foundation.
A Pisces is born between February 19th and March 20th, and is a simple-natured person who likes to keep to themselves. They are very smart and very honest people and are passionate about the people they love and the world they live in. If you are a Pisces, I’d suggest you try low profile makeup shades that are soft and light, just like you. The Charlotte Tilbury Nude Kate lipstick is just darling and a great nude shade, and the Nude L’Oreal Colour Riche LA Palette can help highlight your eyes in the most natural, warm shades.
So the symbol for an Aries is a ram, which makes SO much sense because they can be hard-headed and strong willed. They are ambitious people who don’t give up on what they want in life. An Aries, born between March 21st and April 19th, has probably mastered those ambitious makeup techniques like winged eyeliner for example, so I’d recommend anything that helps them achieve those complicated makeup looks. Some products I would try if you’re an Aries are the Lancome Grandiouse Liquid Liner, or a super bold lipstick like the YSL #13 which is a beautiful orange red shade.
A Taurus is very patient and subtle, and so they have a very strong will to accomplish things that might be complicated. The great thing about a Taurus, who is born between April 20th and May 20th, is that they are also very caring, so their strong will doesn’t often affect others. Because a Taurus is so patient and practical, I would suggest they try products that may take some patience and attention to detail to apply. I think a Taurus would enjoy the Sephora Nail Art Kit and Deborah Lippmans Shades of Berry Nail Polish Set.
Someone who’s a Gemini can be a little bit of a mystery, because they tend to have two sides to their personality. That can mean they are balanced, but also mean they can go from one extreme to the other in a flash. If you’re born between May 21st and June 20th, I think you should try double sided beauty products so you have the option to switch things up when ever you feel like it. I recommend the Nars Sculpting/Highlighting Duo or Tarte’s Double Duty Lipstick and Gloss.
A Cancer is a homebody who loves being domestic and traditional. They are said to be ruled by the moon, and their emotions and impulses can be tied to that theory. A Cancer is born between June 21st and July 22nd. So because you Cancers love staying home so much, I think an at-home pamper session is what you need! Try the Fresh Rose Hydrating Ritual Set for some TLC in the comfort of your own home or the Urban Decays Moon Dust Palette since your sign is said to be ruled by the moon.
A Leo, born between July 23rd and August 22nd, is a powerful force who is confident in themselves and their abilities. If you’re a Leo, you’re a natural born leader, which means you’re also probably a trend-setter. So you should be all over any new beauty trend. Try Nars Hardwired Metallic eyeshadow, or the YSL Metallic Gold Nail Polish in Dove Orfevre –since metallics are huge in beauty right now.
A Virgo is a practical person who is very thoughtful and organized. They work very well with others as well because of how kind they are. So if you’re born between August 23rd and September 22nd, I think you’ll love products that help keep all of your cosmetics organized or things that are multipurpose. A Brush Roll can help keep all of your makeup brushes in check, and Stila’s Convertible Color is very practical as it can be used on both the lips and cheeks.
Libra’s are born between September 23rd and October 22nd, and are super into balance and harmony. They are also really into beauty and surrounding themselves with it, so I’m sure a lot of Libras are makeup junkies. For a Libra, I’d recommend any product that helps them create a balanced, complete look. For example, the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Contour Kit to achieve a perfectly contoured face, or the Caudalie Beauty Elixir that will help set your makeup for the rest of the day.
A Scorpio is like a natural born diva; they are strong and confident and have very bold personalities. They can be a force to be reckoned with and are really good at overcoming obstacles. If you’re born between October 23rd to November 21st, this is you! I think you should go for really bold colors to showcase your personality. Try the Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Grape for a bold purple hue or the Essie Deep Red Nail Polish in Berry Naughty for a strong statement.
As I mentioned before, a Sagittarius is very optimistic and very focused, and we are also champions of bouncing back from being down. We try new things a lot and like to experiment. So if you’re birthday is from November 22nd to December 21st, try the Clinique Happy perfume, since you’re an eternal optimist. I also recommend trying a new makeup palette with unexpected colors like the Nikki Tutorials Too Faced Palette and experiment with all the lovely things in there.
Last but not least, a Capricorn is born between December 22nd and January 19th, and is very intelligent and a huge fan of order. They are very determined and persevere through life’s ups and down. I think a Capricorn would be a huge fan of products that serve a practical purpose for them. I’m thinking of the Naked Basics Palette, as it’s filled with colors to help create the easiest everyday looks, or the Sephora x Mara Hoffman makeup bag to keep all your cosmetics organized.
I hope you guys enjoyed my interpretation of the signs and my zodiac beauty guide!
