Horoscope Makeup Is Trending: Check Your Beauty Vibe Based on Your Zodiac Sign


Horoscopes haven’t been this big since we stopped reading Mizz Magazine in the noughties. But they’re back and even more specific, with horoscope makeup, horoscope hair and even horoscope nail art taking off.

The good news? We can look to a higher power to help take the heat off of us when it comes to decision-making. Our birth date can help uncover our strengths, weaknesses and personality traits, it can also highlight our tastes and preferences. 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. Find your horoscope makeup below…

Gem eyes

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. That’s why they won’t just stick to what’s in their makeup bag and will look elsewhere for inspiration. This thrown-on scattered gem-in-eye look (see what we did there) is a perfect fit.

Fellow Geminis: Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Venus Williams, Lucy Hale

Warm and natural

Understanding, empathetic, loyal and intuitive, Cancerians are thoughtful girl-next-door types. This laidback, peachy-toned look is pretty, approachable and perfect. Sweep an apricot blush over cheeks (you can use the same shade on your eyes) and opt for a warm, silky peach-melba shade on lips to tap into the monotone makeup trend that’s huge right now. You can adjust the shade to best fit your skin tone, with gradients that are deeper or paler, but bronze, copper and rose gold all work beautifully, too.

Fellow Cancerians: Margot Robbie, Ariana Grande, Mindy Kaling, Meryl Streep, Lana Del Ray, Selena Gomez

Fierce glam

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

Immaculate liner

Organised, considerate and meticulous, Virgos suit a makeup look that’s as pulled-together and slick as their personality. Wonky liner or unruly brows simply won’t do, but this immaculate liner is beautiful and orderly, so Virgos can breathe a sigh of relief.

Fellow Virgos: Beyonce, Zendaya, Blake Lively, Cameron Diaz, Taraji P. Henson, Lili Reinhart

Deep and romantic

Charming, social, diplomatic and tactful, Libras are naturally alluring. They crave balance and harmony and suit something romantic like a powerful deep-red lip and delicate, fluttery lashes.

Soft and smoky liner

Outwardly composed, inwardly emotional, determined and powerful, Scorpios are both strong and soft. This eye makeup look is perfect since the liner is slick and fierce, but it’s softened with the hazy cloud of blue shadow. Sexy but sweet.

Fellow Scorpios: Ciara, Kendall Jenner, Kiernan Shipka, Emma Stone, Anne Hathaway, Rachel McAdams, Hailey Bieber

Cut-out neon liner

Adventurous, hilarious, intelligent and a little bit reckless, Sagittarians are confident to follow their own tastes rather than the trends which means no look is off limits. You’ll regularly see them switch up a classic look with a fresh new spin, incorporating new shades and shapes. Case in point: this cut-out neon liner.

Fellow Sagittarius: Miley Cyrus, Zoe Kravitz, Britney Spears, Janelle Monae, Taylor Swift, Tina Turner, Chrissy Teigen

Pretty and practical

Driven, loyal and independent, Capricorns like to consider all the options before they make a decision – and it’s unlikely to be anything too edgy. A slightly smoky eye with nude lips is a classic that’s still effortlessly chic. And if it ain’t broke, why break it?

Fellow Capricorns: Michelle Obama, Dolly Parton, Kate Moss, Mary J Blige, Duchess of Cambridge, Zooey Deschanel

Undone and natural

Original, creative, perceptive and smart Aquarians are 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. Lemon yellow, anyone?

Fellow Aquarius: Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Shakira, Chloe Grace Moretz, Yara Shahidi

Soft and fresh

Compassionate, generous and intuitive, Pisces personalities suit a softer makeup look – nothing too graphic or stark. A gentle colour palette of warm blushes with just-kissed rosy lips and lively cheeks is perfect.

Fellow Pisces: Rihanna, Drew Barrymore, Emily Blunt, Dakota Fanning, Lupita Nyong’o, Rebel Wilson
