Even if you aren't a firm believer in astrology, it's pretty hard not to take a look at your horoscope prediction from time to time. Maybe you've looked to your sign to help define your personality traits or to decide if your partner is a good match — if only out of pure curiosity.
But it turns out astrology has more to say about you than just your psyche. It also has great insight when it comes to your style. Believe it or not, your emotions and identity go hand in hand with your beauty fixes. So your hair, makeup, and even manicure preferences have a lot to do with your sign. That's why we've pulled together the ideal beauty routine according to your sign . . . along with what the stars say you need to toss ASAP.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
The Taurus chic is independent and loyal — and very emotionally strong. With an eye for detail, she does classic beauty like no other sign (hello, Audrey Hepburn!). For her best look, she should try mysterious-looking eyes, using a subtle green eyeliner to bring out those hazel brown peeps and a plum gloss. Luxe all the way! But she should take care to avoid bold colors and thick black eyeliners as full-on intensity is not her thing.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
This sign's dual personality is often represented by twins, and two things are for sure: The Gemini girl is incredibly smart and never boring. Even though she can be indecisive, people love her because she is sassy and sexy. She likes to switch it up and is usually game to try any new beauty products at least once — you go, girl! Her go-to beauty regime: cool blue nails (her power color) and a soft pink blush for a natural glow. But she should try to avoid dark lipstick and heavy brows.
Cancer (June 22 – July 23)
Intense and creative, the Cancer gal looks for shimmery colors that remind us of the moonlight. Strobing is her thing and she naturally seeks products with light and sparkle. Her beauty do: a highlighting powder for those sharp cheekbones, a soft shimmer gloss, dewy creams, and illuminators are a must. Not her cup of tea: bold eyeliners in earthy colors and heavy lashes — forget about those fakes.
Leo (July 24 – August 23)
Miss Leo, she loves attention and charms everyone around with her wit and cheerfulness. Just like her symbol, the fierce lion, her mane is always on fleek. Since hair is a Leo's main focus, a great dry shampoo is always on her list. Another fave: a classic red lip, because all eyes are always on her. She should shy away from pink manis and nude lipsticks – they're too demure for her style.
Virgo (August 24 – September 23)
You know she's a Virgo because she is the ultimate perfectionist. To others, she may be a little OCD, but the Virgo lady's makeup game is strong and for good reason: She doesn't settle for anything less than the best. Very health-conscious, she also loves natural products. Her must-haves are a light floral scent and a perfect eyebrow kit, for killer peepers. Not for her: packed glitter glosses and colored eyeshadow.
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Intense, charming, and very seductive, the Scorpio woman gravitates toward deep, dark colors — burgundy all day, every day. Her innate power and magnetic confidence attracts everyone, lovers and besties alike. What we want to know is, what's Scorpio's secret? Her beauty do: a matte burgundy lip for instant sexiness and a smoky eye. Not so great for Scorpio: barely there makeup and blue eyeshadows.
Sagittarius (November 23 — December 22)
An incurable optimist, the adventurous Sag is always on the go. She loves spontaneity and adores traveling. Her need to know and understand everything has no end, so her beauty style must be able to adapt to her hectic schedule. Musts on her list: a purse-friendly travel kit for any situation and a lengthening mascara to revive those jet-lagged eyes. Not for the fun Sag: dark brown lipstick and a French mani (so last season!).
Capricorn (December 23–January 20)
The Capricorn gal is the perfect planner. Hard working and determined, she knows how to reach her goals. And her beauty regimen is just as organized as she is. Since "clean" is practically her middle name, you can bet that her skin will always be on point. Her beauty fixes: a sparkling face cleanser and a tinted moisturizer for a flawless, no makeup look. Not her thing: packing on the bronzer and using exfoliators — they irritate her sensitive skin.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
The Aquarian friend is a dreamer and a visionary, bound by the symbol of water. Her gals love her because of her humanitarian outlook on life and on beauty as well. She loves to talk and gives great advice when it comes to cutting-edge beauty finds — because you name it, she's has tried it! Her musts: a beauty mist and a shimmer eyeshadow for a natural boost. But she shies away from heavy creams and tinted foundations — they can make her look too oily.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Imaginative and introspective, the Pisces girl is unique and deeply intelligent. Sometimes she feels like a fish out of water, but her original ideals are admirable. When it comes to beauty, she seeks out rare and special products — vintage Hollywood styles and soft textures are her thing. What works for her is an artist eye palette for blending extraordinary colors and a classic nude lip to balance it out. Not for her: red acrylic tips and cream eyeshadows.
