Makeup Looks Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Advertisements

Everything’s written in the stars. Atleast, that’s how I would justify my ‘off’ days. (Curse you, Mercury retrograde!) But all jokes aside, astrology has been the hottest topic for the past few years and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere. You can use astrology to figure your future, love-life, and even what look suits your face! Of course, astrology doesn’t have all the answers. But it doesn’t hurt to know that at least it’ll be there to show you what looks best on you. So here’s our interpretation of the best makeup styles for our 12 beloved signs! What’s yours?

Aries – Bold Lip

Seems suiting to match a fiery red lip to the most explosive, thrill-seeking zodiac sign! Don’t be shy Aries, we know you love anything that can further increase their inherent resting-bitch-face. To achieve the perfect smoldering lip style, make sure you line your lips with a brown lip liner to further emphasize the intensity of your desired red and enjoy! Try not to burn us along the way. Who are we kidding?You’re an Aries.

Taurus – ‘Boy beat.’

When you’re ruled by Venus and carry earth elements, it’s no wonder that every Taurus carries a calming yet striking beauty. Which is why we recommend the ‘Boy beat.’ It is essentially the new ‘no makeup-makeup’ look. It’s built upon lightly filling in your natural features with subtle shades and techniques. The once filled, carved brow is now a handy tinted brow gel. The powder highlighters and blushes are now being replaced with liquid meant to melt into your skin. And if you wanna go full on forest goddess, we recommend faux freckles. Henna works best for this effect!

Gemini – Twiggy Lashes

Oo la la! Doesn’t this look take you back to the rockin’ 70s? This ‘Twiggy’ inspired eye look definitely reminds us of our beloved Gemini? Bold, yet classic. This look can be achieved by gluing individual false lashes upon your lower lid, or by mimicking lashes with your hefty liquid liner.

Cancer – Halo makeup

One of the most distinct features of a Cancer? Their round eyes! This leads to Cancers with a wide lid and so many possibilities to play with. How exciting!

Leo – Neon eyeshadow

Did you really not expect us to choose the most dramatic makeup style for the flashy Leo? Come on, you know them. Venturing outside of the comfort zone is written all over our empress Leos. Just don’t be shocked if they pretend they don’t know us once they try this look. They’re feelin’ themselves!

Scorpios are intense. This is a fact as clear as day. Therefore it’s only fair, my beautifully terrifying Scorpio that you match your energy. Yup. You heard us. Pull out your metallic lipstick. Press on your creamy metallic eyeshadow. And steadily line your eyes with our flashy suggestion!

Sagittarius – Faux Face Tattoos

Alright, alright. We get it. Actual face tattoos are terrifying, which is why this little life hack does wonders! The best part? All you need is your handy waterproof liquid eyeliner and your imagination. (Hint: check out ‘stick and poke’ tattoo templates for inspiration!)

Capricorn – Thick eyeliner

If you know Capricorns, you’d know that they’ll give everything their all or none. The same can apply with eyeliner. Remember; make sure your liner is sharp enough to kill a misogynistic man. You know you wouldn’t have it any other way.

Aquarius Bleached brows

Leave it to an Aquarius to take the extra mile and shock the world! Which explains why they’re considered the ‘rebel’ of the zodiacs. Aquarians thrive in shocking the boring uninspired masses. To achieve this look, grab your spoolie and make sure to plop a pea-size of your desired concealer. Begin to brush your brows downwards and then brush upwards in order to cover each brow hair equally. Call them what you want, but you can’t ever call an Aquarius ‘boring.’

Pisces – Glitter

Sure, some of us hopped late on the ‘glitter face bomb’ once we began to binge watch ‘Euphoria.’ But not our beloved dreamy Pisces. They were born for that fairy lifestyle. We can only envy the way they manage to pull it all off. So go on. Find that glitter. Put it on your lids, on your cheeks, anywhere and everywhere. Go crazy!
