With too much choice, we’re glad for something that helps streamline. So, to help us determine our signature makeup look, we’re turning to our zodiac sign to guide us…
Things are looking a lot more mystical around these parts. Horoscopes have taken off as we look to a higher power to help take the heat off of us when it comes to decision-making. Our birth date can help highlight our strengths, weaknesses and personality traits, it can also uncover our tastes and preferences.
ALL THE GLOW

(20th April-20th May)

(21st May-20th June)
Bubbly, affectionate, curious, smart and fun, geminis are more likely to experiment with creative makeup looks. They’re the type that will smudge on an OTT colour and make it look instantly wearable.

(23rd July-22nd August)
Charismatic, entertaining, confident and proud, inside every leo is a fierce lioness, which means a sultry, glam, look is the only way to go. Sculpt lashes by coaxing them outward at the edge for a more feline shape, groom brows, contour like you mean it and use a gloss to highlight lips.
Fellow leos: JLo, Rose Byrne, Sandra Bullock, Megan Markle, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence
(23rd August-22nd September)
Organised, clever, hard-working, considerate and meticulous, virgos suit a makeup look that’s as pulled-together and slick as their personality.

(20th January-18th February)
Unconventional, creative, perceptive and smart aquarius’ are progressive non-conformists. The same goes for their makeup. Though they’re on top of the trends, they won’t let that dictate their choices. Instead of submitting their makeup to rules and regulations, they’re drawn to colours, textures and shapes that suit their mood.
Fellow aquarius: Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Shakira, Chloe Grace Moretz, Yara Shahidi
SOFT AND FRESH
(19th February-20th March)
