One of the reasons I love astrology is because it can be used to help you in every area of your life from dating, career, health, fashion and beauty! Did you know that your rising/ascendant sign or the “mask” you wear every day has an influence on your outward appearance, including your facial features? If you don’t know your rising sign, you should have a private birth chart reading. But in the meantime I am going to break down the types of beauty products you should be using based on your zodiac sign.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac so keeping abreast of trends is a must. Korean beauty or “K-Beauty” continues to trend with cushions, essences and sheet masks being all the rage. An innovative gel mist to boost hydration and fight skin damaging free radicals is just what this sign needs to protect that beautiful face.
Taurus is the sign most in tuned with the five senses so luxury and comfort are always on their minds. This Venus ruled sign should invest in an indulgent, buttery sleep mask or night cream that hydrates and rejuvenates skin overnight.
Gemini is a mutable air sign, which means they like change and are adaptable. Since they won’t be caught dead with the same hairstyle for too long, a temporary hair color spray is perfect for this sign that has the reputation for having two personalities.
Cancers are nurturers at heart and should learn to give as much love to self as they do to others. Treating themselves to an at-home spa night with a bubble bath and exfoliating body scrub followed by a rich body cream will keep this crab from being well…crabby.
What’s a lion without its mane? Leo’s love being the center of attention so it’s time to adopt the #BigHairDontCare mentality. Straight and wavy Leos should invest in foam rollers or a new curling iron. Naturally curly lions should go big or go home by brushing out their natural curls and adding lightweight oil for shine.
Virgo is the sign of the virgin but that doesn’t mean they have to keep “virgin” hair forever. Adding some fun highlights or balayage to their hair is a small risk. More conservative Virgos can take a page out of Gemini’s book and try temporary hair color first.
Libras live for relationships and partnerships so it’s only natural that they would gravitate towards products that serve a dual purpose. A double-ended mascara that includes both a volumizing primer and lengthening mascara formula in one is the perfect match for this sign.
Sultry Scorpios have the ability to hypnotize people with their gaze so they should make sure their eyes are always on point. Lining them with a chunky kohl pencil liner in an unexpected jewel tone will keep onlookers mesmerized and inspired.
Sagittarians love to travel – even if the destination is not that far away from home. This Jupiter ruled sign loves spontaneity so it’s essential that they carry travel friendly makeup remover wipes to keep their skin in check without compromising having fun.
Capricorns are goats but they are the workhorses of the zodiac who are usually short on time. A quick drying makeup brush cleanser is a must have for this sign which prefers to spend more time in the boardroom than in the bathroom.
Aquarius, the water bearer is often mistaken for a water sign but it’s an air sign. Aquarians have a “hybrid” personality, so a hybrid liquid to powder foundation is perfect for this Uranus ruled sign that wants a smooth finish sans cakiness.
Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions so a serum or face cream with Omega-3 Fatty Acids is perfect for this sign. We all know beauty starts from within so double team that beauty regimen by also taking a daily fish oil or flaxseed pill for healthy skin, hair and nails.
