Beauty By The Stars: Your Sign’s Must-Have Beauty Product [Part 1]


Beauty by the Stars3

Astrology can tell us a lot about our lives. Whether or not you really buy it, your star sign can you offer ideas about your personality, your relationship, even your career. So why can’t it tell us about what beauty products we’ll love?

We say it totally can. We’ve chosen one beauty product for each star sign, taking the characteristics of each into account. Which product should you try next? Maybe the (literal) stars have your answer.



You are bold adventurous and energetic – you need a high-octane product that will reflect this. We love Benefit’s Cha Cha Tint, a fun, orange-hued lip and cheek tint. It isn’t for the faint of heart at all, and even though you can apply as little as possible for a more muted look, this product has the power to be seriously bold. It’s great for you, Aries girl, because you tend to love a challenge.



This Earth sign loves comfort and reassurance. As one of the more stubborn signs on the spectrum, a Taurus is likely to crave routine and regularity. This practical sign will value an economical (but still universal and useful) product like Wet n’ Wild’s Ultimate Minerals Bronzer will provide a warm, earthy glow without adding all the fuss that a more pigmented product would bring.

Since Geminis notoriously posses the characteristics of both yin and yang, an ideal product for this sign is one that offers duality. We love this NARS eyeshadow duo. It is pricey, but the product is super high quality. You also get the chance to use one of two shades, which is a total plus for you. We love the shade combo ‘Tzarine,’ which includes a soft champagne shade as well as a bold steel color.

Cancers are known to be very sensitive, nurturing and caring, but a little bid moody, with a definite dark side. Since this is a water sign that’s ruled by the moon, a dark blue eyeliner is the perfect representation of the Cancer spirit. We love the dreamy, mysterious quality of Sephora’s gel liner in the shade ‘Made in Manhattan,’ a dark sapphire color with a hint of shimmer.



Leos are confident, intense and into their appearances. Someone under this sign may be willing to shell out cash on the very best products. Since Leos are fascinated by newness and innovation, we predict ladies under this sign will find it hard to resist Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes mascara. The round brush is a totally modern touch and the results it delivers are bold and daring, much like the Leo lady herself.

Virgos are perfectionists. Extreme attention to detail and logic make this sign quite particular about the little things. That’s why they’ll need great primers to keep their makeup looking as close to perfect as possible all day and night. This priming set by Bare Minerals will eliminate unwanted shine and keep makeup in its place.
