The Best Beauty Looks for Your Zodiac Sign
What's the first thing you do when you wake up? Maybe you check emails, or do the grown-up thing and actually get out of bed and start living. I read my horoscope. So you can imagine my horror when it occurred to me that for years, I've been sitting in front of a mirror, day after day, wondering how to do my hair and makeup, when I could have developed a signature look based on my sign.
Well, my precious little beams of light and wonder, I want you to find your signature looks, too. Together we can roam free like the vessels of energy and radiance that we truly are.
The most fiery zodiac sign, Aries women are restless, physical, animated, and hot-headed. You are as intense as they come. When it comes to hair and makeup, everything has to be bold and striking. That means a huge updo, bold liner, bright lips, and a bold brow. You want it all.
Celeb Aries: Kourtney Kardashian
There’s no sign as hard-headed and stubborn as a Taurus. You are nothing if not practical and grounded, and you expect everyone around you to be the same way. Your perfect look is an easy ponytail, to keep hair out of your face, and a swipe of rich, earthy copper shadow, because you are one with Mother Nature.
Celeb Taurus: Megan Fox
Gemini, you sly little thing. A master of words and manipulation, you know how to get what you want out of people. Your look is a risky, androgynous pixie cut paired with subtle, soft makeup. Just like the twins that represent your sign, you’re a bit of everything, and that’s why we love (and fear) you.
Celeb Gemini: Natalie Portman
All pink everything. Cancer woman, you are a soft, delicate flower and I want to put you in my pocket and leave you there forever. From weekly deep conditioning treatments for your soft-as-a-cloud waves, to the prettiest pink glosses, you might as well be a Disney princess. Just make sure your makeup is waterproof; you know how moody you can get.
Celeb Cancer: Diane Kruger
It’s hard not to love a Leo. Yes, you’re loud and opinionated and temperamental, but you might be the most optimistic and entertaining people on earth. It should come as no surprise that you want everything, from big hair to a metallic smoky eye to a bright red lip. All at once.
Celeb Leo: Jennifer Lopez
The perfectionist of the bunch, you take work very seriously. You’re not one to crack jokes or--god forbid--laugh at yourself. Remember Grandmother Willow from Pocahontas? I would be willing to bet my entire existence that she was a Virgo. You’re in touch with the outdoors, and are eternally grounded and hard-working. Thanks for always having everyone’s back, V. Your look: big, healthy hair and bronzed, glowing skin.
Celeb Virgo: Obviously Beyonce
Honestly, you’re just the sweetest. Libras are polite, considerate, charming and intellectual. You soft-spoken, eloquent little butterflies are like a never-ending bubble bath. Your preferred look is a neat little bun (Of course. Ugh, I adore you) and a cotton candy lip, with some pretty pink blush and pretty hair and everything is just so pretty. Please never change.
Celeb Libra: Kate Winslet (Also Lil Wayne, the sweetest of all the butterflies)
This sign is ruled by sex, jealousy, and passion. You Scorpios also tend to be full to the brim with secrets. (I think that’s why your hair is so big.) As the most mysterious signs of the zodiac, it’s no surprise that your signature look is smoky eyes, tousled, post-sex hair, and glossy lips. In short, you are scary and hot (scarily hot…?).
Celeb Scorpio: Winona Ryder
This fire sign is defined by a constant restlessness and intense need for travel. Sagittariuses hate boundaries of any kind, and are endlessly optimistic to the point of naivety. But YOLO, right? This look has to be quick, easy and long-lasting, like a messy top knot, a bold brow and a quick swipe of berry lip stain.
Celeb Sagittarius: Vanessa Hudgens
You are level-headed, determined and pretty conservative. A sleek blowout that will last a few days is key to your regimen. You’ll also make time in your busy schedule for an olive oil hair mask, because there isn't anything more important than your health, including the health of your hair. Your beauty look is comprised of a bold brow (to make you look even more serious than you naturally do), a quick dusting of bronzer, a nude lip and a couple quick swipes of mascara. Who has time for a full face of makeup when there’s work to be done?
Celeb Capricorn: Kate Middleton
You’re the artist of the zodiac and it definitely shows in your hair and makeup. Ethereal is the perfect look for you. From loose braids to bright lips, you are the ultimate flower child. Now, stick some daisies in your hair and get back to your poetry reading.
Celeb Aquarius: Mischa Barton
Perhaps the most emotionally intense sign, Pisces women are anxious, inquisitive and incredibly sensitive. Your innocence and constant state of bewilderment is reflected in your makeup. Your go-to look? Wide, shimmery eyes and lots of highlighter. Your hair is soft but a little messy, probably from nervously tugging at it while over-analyzing your latest text conversation.
Celeb Pisces: Dakota Fanning
