What’s your sign?
If you had a nickel for every chump who tried to use that line on you... well, let’s just say you’d probs be relaxing on your own private island right now and not here discussing zodiac makeup looks.
Or would you? TBH, zodiac makeup is pretty cool. It’s all about astrology — sky, stars, fire, water, air, earth and a whole bunch of other cool stuff — and it allows you to amp up what you like and dial down what you don’t. So to clarify, we’d still be discussing zodiac makeup; we’d just be doing it from our luxury cabana.
A Sponge for Every Sign
At Beautyblender, self expression is one of our founding principles, so why shouldn’t that extend to your makeup sponge? Check out our Zodiac Collection to score a blender that’s unique to your astrological sign.
The exclusive foam always gives you a flawless blend no matter which of the below looks you want to try!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Audacious and confident, Aries are known for bolting head first into challenges and life in general — which is no surprise since the ram is your symbol. When it comes to zodiac makeup looks, pay homage to the beautiful beast within with a bold lip. Classic red is always stunning IOHO, but be sure to mix it up from time to time with a deep purple or cranberry lest your inner ram get restless 🐏 😡💄.
Bonus zodiac makeup tip: When you’re working with a vibrant lip, you can’t afford redness elsewhere. Aries tend to run hot, which can leave skin looking flushed. Try a primer that’s formulated to combat redness, such as the The Leveler™ Pore Minimizing Primer. It has skin-friendly ingredients like niacinamide to help blur the appearance of redness, large pores and uneven texture, all of which will make your bold lip pop.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As an earth sign, Tauruses love all things to be totally au naturel. Billed as the strong, silent type, you aren’t the first to speak up, but if somebody crosses you, things can get *turnt* with a quickness. Friends and family know you as reliable and stubborn — just like the bull of your sign.
How do you translate all that into zodiac makeup looks? Simple: Cut the BS! Sleek, serene and sensual are what you gravitate toward. Think green eyeshadow, brown eyeliner and a muted lip — but don’t forget your sparkly side. Tauruses like a little bling just as much as the next girl, which is where Glass Glow Crystal Clear Shinelighter comes in. Simply pick a feature you want to make pop, glide on the light, bright sheen and you’re ready to go. No muss, no fuss — lots of impact.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis are known for having many passions, which tracks since you’re symbolized by the celestial twins. The air sign was interested in so many things it had to double itself just to keep up. Overachieve much? Sometimes wrongly mischaracterized as two-faced, you may tire of things easily, but no matter what you’re doing, you’re always clever, curious and making friends.
In the cannon of zodiac makeup looks, all of that equals TRENDSETTER. You keep the people interested, hunny, and that includes yourself. We’ve got two steps for you: 1. Bookmark The Blend so you always know what’s coming, and 2. Check out our four favorite eyeshadow experiments. From overliner to blinged-out brows, you’re the perfect person to try it all, because let’s be honest — you’re *kinda* two people. Double trouble = double fun.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Represented by the crab, Cancer swims between sea and shore, in touch with both the material and emotional world. That highly intuitive nature makes you great at reading the energy in any room, and your hard shell protects you against any attacks. Ruled by the moon, Cancer is intrinsically tied to the stars, which makes your zodiac makeup look *kind of* a no-brainer. We’re talking shimmer, we’re talking metallics, we’re talking a full 50 shades of gray!
The sky is *lit’rally* the limit for Cancer, and the easiest way to add glittery glamour is eyeshadow. Check out our best tips and tricks here, and then grab yourself a SHADY LADY — the all-over brush and cooling roller that will keep your twinkle tight. As if that’s not enough, our 2020 Holiday Collection happens to be themed “Out Of This World.” You’re welcome, Cancer.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Glowing sunsets, golden tones, fiery flames — Leo is HOT on all things gold and gleaming. Passionate and celebratory, those born under the lion sign are natural leaders with an artistic streak.
When it comes to zodiac makeup looks, Leos *must* go for the gold, and that doesn’t just mean metallic eyeshadows (though those are always 🔥). For a subtle golden glow, it’s all about that bronzer. Find your favorite one, ID your face shape and get to contouring! Round, oval, square or heart-shaped, contouring will bring out your inner heat by bringing the light exactly where you need it.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Logical and pragmatic, Virgos are perfectionists, which means your game is tight 24/7/365. As an earth sign that’s aware of every detail, you’re always working to sharpen your skills because practice makes perfect.
Of the zodiac makeup looks, Virgos often channel their modest, minimal impulses. That means working to achieve a flawless, nude makeup look. Once you’ve got that under your belt, though, have some fun! You’ve got the steadiest hand in all the land, which means you’ll be a natural doing winged eyeliner with our LINER DESIGNER: Cat-Eye Makeup Tool.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Represented by the scales, Libra is all about balance and symmetry. You crave harmony, but you aren’t afraid to get messy in matters of love, beauty or money — which tracks since yours is a sign ruled by Venus.
Because you’re well versed in matters of the heart, your zodiac makeup looks start with a glowing foundation. Opal Essence™ Serum Primer creates a hydrating base to give you a dewy, golden-hour glow that says you’re ready for love, romance and all the beautiful pleasures the world has to offer.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Passionate and meticulous, Scorpio is a water sign that takes its power from emotions. You know what you want and you aren’t afraid to go get it. You’re always looking a few steps ahead, but you never tell anyone what you’re planning, which lends to your beguiling nature.
That means zodiac makeup looks for Scorpios start and end with DRAMA, often emanating from the eyes. Smoldering and sexy looks are where you live, which means you need a WING MAN: Curved Eyeliner Brush to get it all just right. You’ll also want to perfect a smokey eye, which sets the Scorpio vibe instantly.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius are the knowledge-seekers of the set. You love to chase intellectual or physical adventure, you’re killer at telling stories, and you draw in people effortlessly. Blunt, funny and curious, the phrase “life of the party” was pretty much invented to describe you. With your carefree vibe and packed schedule, you need to be ready to go at a moment’s notice. That means a zodiac makeup look that’s not fussy and lets your inner light shine, child!
The best place to start with that: BOUNCE Airbrush Liquid Whip Concealer. The weightless formula will knock out dark circles, cover blemishes and smooth out discoloration. You can even learn how to use it as foundation for those days when the world simply will not wait for your beautiful face to show up and start slaying.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
First things first: WTH is a sea goat? If you’re a Capricorn, you know it as your mythological creature: Body of a goat, tail of a fish and super skills in any practical or emotional sitch. Capricorns are all about DEM GOALS, and because of that laser focus, some people perceive you as cold and disconnected.
As if! You can be just as caring as anyone else, and zodiac makeup looks are a great place to show off that inner warmth. Start with a product that’s packed with hyaluronic acid, a magic little ingredient that helps skin hang onto as much moisture as possible so it looks firm, hydrated and healthy. Our BOUNCE concealer and foundation are both laced with just the right amount of HA to give you a plump, radiant glow. Find your perfect shade in 2 minutes.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Speaking of crazy-fab mascots, how about the water bearer? Aquarius is represented by this mystical healer who bestows water (aka life!) upon earth. A rebel at heart, you’re free spirited and ready to challenge anyone who stands in your way. Think funky fashions, odd hobbies and creative lewks.
As someone who’s always trying new things, step one of any zodiac makeup look is to ace your base. Learn how to master both a dewy and matte foundation, and deploy the latter whenever you’re testing out a more adventurous feature… say one that might be helped by Liner Designer? This triple-edged eyeliner tool acts as a steady guide so you can create multiple looks with steady, even flicks. Even a free spirit can appreciate next-level precision, amirite?
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The water sign Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, which means you’re always being tugged between fantasy and reality. Pisces absorb EV-UH-RY-THING: Joy, pain, fear, excitement and any other emotions of all the other signs. That makes you *srsly* sensitive and compassionate.
When it comes to zodiac makeup looks, keep those luminescent, water-loving vibes going by applying highlighter like a pro. And be sure to pack your Re-Dew Set & Refresh Spray. Being the emotional support of an outfit can be *pretty* exhausting, but if you’ve got Re-Dew in your bag, you can reach for it all day to protect, plump and hydrate your skin.
Can’t commit to just one sign?
Snag all 12 with the Zodiac Collection Set! Bonus: you also get an OG Beautyblender makeup sponge in this limited-edition set. It’s a $260 value for $150, which means *everyone’s* stars are aligning 😉✨.
