You know all about your zodiac sign, but do you know how it affects the products you buy? Your personality (which, if you’re a believer, is based on astrology) has so much to do with the ingredients you gravitate toward, the textures you love, and the shades you’ve come to adore.
So, we decided to do a little of the decision-making for you. There are so many products out there, after all. We took a look at each zodiac sign and recommended products for each that best fit your specific personality. Are we astrologers? No. But we do know beauty products.
Keep reading to find out which beauty products you should buy, based on astrology.
Although you thrive on attention and radiate sensuality, at the end of the day, you want someone who truly gets you. You need a product that will make you feel fiery and bold—with serious impact. In addition, go for a really innovative, reliable, and luxury product that will be there for you in times of need.
Recently, Emmie Lichtenberg described Tauruses in a way that I think best fits your personal brand: casual opulence. You’re like the human equivalent of “lying in the grass drinking champagne.” You enjoy luxury—expensive creams, lush fabrics, really indulgent food—but you can also get down. You like to stay out late, and thus need products that really work. But your playful hedonism calls for those products to feel good, and your aesthetic sensibilities mean they have to look good, too. Opt for a prestige brand with really beautiful packaging, but pair it with something simple and all-natural. Both should be products that last a long time, as you’re comfort-minded and loyal.
Geminis have dual personalities—you can be into something one minute and onto something totally different the next. The best way to remedy this (for your bank account’s sake) is to invest in two-in-one products that work well together but also function on their own.
You wear your heart on your sleeve, dear Cancer. Which means that you often shed a tear listening to Adele or even watching reruns of The O.C. (Marissa Cooper’s death gets us every time, too.) Opt for a soothing cleanser to calm sensitive skin, and a really good waterproof mascara.
Leos like to heat things up with sparkles and drama. You’re bold, sometimes flashy, and known to have distinctive hair. Go for a glittery metallic eye shadow and a lusty golden hair mask.
You’re a perfectionist and often see every single flaw (whether you want to or not). For you, it’s important to go for products that boast seriously flawless results. (Charlotte Tilbury’s new foundation, for example, is actually magic.) You’re also meticulous and won’t stop until a job is done—and done right. You have the perfect personality for mastering the use of a sharp liquid liner. After all, it’s all about precision.
Libras hate to be rushed—you prefer that everything happens your way on your time. Even if that means you’re going to show up fashionably late. With that in mind, we recommend a few spa-worthy products that you can use to pamper while you while away the hours. Choose an aromatherapy bath product (preferably a set) and a hair mask to apply in tandem.
Many Scorpios are drawn to “dark” things and wear shocking red or pink lipsticks. You’re intense, mysterious, and sexy. Your thing is a signature fragrance, but make sure it’s as lusty as you are, Scorpio. With that and a dark, blood-red lipstick, you’re sure to leave a powerful impression.
You’re the zodiac’s traveler, the ultimate free spirit. Sagittariuses are open-minded and adventurous—which makes exploring the world fun and easy for you. Make sure to pack a few essentials before you jet-set off to your next destination. Our advice? An easy-to-apply BB cream with SPF, and a travel-size dry shampoo. (Who needs a proper shower when you have mountains to climb or deserts to traverse?)
Usually described as an “old soul,” you’re into the classics. You love tradition and follow those same rules when it comes to your beauty products. We prescribe a powerful serum made from grapes (grown-ups love wine; you love products created from wine) and a vintage-inspired powder puff.
You gravitate toward creative, offbeat colors because of your eccentric and original nature. You’re super individualistic, and you want your makeup to be the same. Aquariuses tend to want to make the world a better place, so vegan makeup is a great choice, as well as a highly pigmented eye shadow palette for days when you’re feeling daring.
Your moods are mysterious, and your dreams are intense. So, you should definitely keep a dream journal. Pisces tend to come up with their greatest ideas while they sleep, so make sure your bedtime routine is a good one. We prescribe a thick, moisturizing sleep mask and overnight eye cream packed with essential oils.
