The concept of astrology draws in a lot of supporters. It's entertaining to learn more about your and others' personalities and luck through these zodiac signs.
Whether or not you take it seriously, astrology is fun. If you often get asked about your zodiac, why not have it reflected in your makeup? Here are some makeup tips and tricks to match your zodiac sign.
12 Makeup Inspirations for Every Zodiac Sign
The signs' characteristics and personality traits can be your fun and quirky guide in choosing the hair, makeup, and skincare products to lift your mood and make you feel powerful.
1. GOLD HIGHLIGHTER FOR THE FIERY ARIES (21st March–19th April)
Aries enjoys being first, so it's no surprise that these daring rams are the first sign of the zodiac. They are the ambitious ones who jump headfirst, even in the most difficult situations.
The fire sign is bold and bright as a star, and if you are an Aries, you need a makeup look that stands out. Start with the classic smokey eye, emphasize the high points of your face with a golden highlighter, and finish it off with Maybelline SuperStay Ink Cray in the shade Hustle n Heels for the bold finish.
2. BOLD AND SIMPLE FOR THE LUXURIOUS YET COMFORTABLE TAURUS (20th April–20th May)
The bull represents Taurus, an earth sign. Like their celestial spirit animal, Taureans enjoy relaxing in peaceful, bucolic settings, surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors.
The earth sign is perfect with equally earthy shades and muted mattes. They prefer both bold and timeless styles over anything too out of the ordinary because they are dependable, practical, loving, and unshakeable. Go for a combination of minimalistic eyes and luxurious yet classic muted purple SuperStay Ink Crayon in Stay Exceptional.
3. GLITTERS AND GEMS FOR THE TRENDSETTER GEMINI (21st May–20th June)
Geminis are known for their duality and balance. This air sign, appropriately represented by the celestial twins, is so interested in many styles that it had to double itself.
Geminis are bubbly, affectionate, curious, smart, and fun. They can smudge an obnoxious color and make it look wearable. Therefore, they'll look great with color-blocked or two-toned eyes, contrasting eyeshadows, dual-tone makeup, and glitters and gemstones.
If you are the creative-exploratory type when it comes to makeup, that's the Gemini peeking out of you, as they won't limit themselves to what's in their makeup bag and will seek inspiration elsewhere. The SuperStay Ink Crayon in the shade Make It Happen should be the choice of lippie for Geminis out there! They can carry the wine hue of this highly-pigmented shade.
4. WARM AND PEACHY FOR THE LOVING CANCER (21st June–22nd July)
Cancer is a water sign that rules the zodiac. They are understanding, empathetic, and intuitive, and their psychic abilities manifest in physical spaces. Cancer is a cardinal water sign; therefore, they can go for both dramatic or low-key approaches. They would enjoy experimenting with the best serums, moisturizers, primers, and highlighters—anything that gives them a dewy glow as a water sign.
Pay homage to the humble crab. For Cancers, apply an apricot blush on your cheeks (the same shade can be used on your eyes) and a matte peachy color on your lips like the SuperStay Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Lover.
5. CONTOURED AND SHAPED FOR THE CONFIDENT LEO (23rd July–22nd August)
Leo has arrived, so roll out the red carpet. The lion represents Leo, and this fiery sign is the king and queen of the celestial jungle. Vivacious, theatrical, and passionate, Leos love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate themselves.
Leos, ruled by the self-assured sun, prefer sun-kissed dramatic and sultry glam looks. They look great with bronzers, anything with a golden undertone, shimmer spray, illuminating moisturizer or primer, and, because they love being outside, they'll do well to have SPF built into their products. Sculpt lashes by coaxing them outward at the edge, groom brows, and contour like a pro to get that true feline look.
Hair care, of course, is important for a Leo who's very conscious of their manes. They love haircare products, especially anything beachy-scented or volumizing. And to match this confident and self-assured energy, only Leos can wear a bold, red SuperStay Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Pioneer.
6. CLEAN AND PRECISE FOR THE ORGANIZED AND CLEAR-HEADED VIRGO (23rd August–22nd September)
Virgo is an earth sign that has deep roots in the material world. Virgos approach life logically, practically, and methodically—a perfectionist at heart. They aren't afraid to sharpen skills through diligent and consistent practice.
Being organized, clever, hardworking, considerate, and meticulous, Virgos are known for their smooth and slick makeup applications; They can create the perfect winged eyeliner the way savants form perfect circles in one try. Their makeup is as put-together and slick as their personality. Therefore, Virgos prefer ultra-fine liners that are beautiful and orderly.
They also go for multitasking products that keep them fresh-faced and rosy, such as SPF-infused pressed powder, thickening and lengthening mascara, and flawless matte lip color like the SuperStay Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Seductress. They don't slack off on their beauty and skincare products either—they want their products to be fair-trade and free of harmful chemicals and toxins.
7. DEEP RED FOR THE ADVENTUROUS LIBRA (23rd September–22nd October)
Libra is an air sign represented by the scales—interestingly, the zodiac's only inanimate object—an association that reflects Libra's obsession with balance and harmony.
They love to experiment and try new things, especially in skincare, because they know it's the foundation of everything. As Libras are naturally alluring, they are always on the lookout for the ultimate tools to create a memorable cat-eye or anything romantic, like a powerful deep-red lip such as the SuperStay Ink Liquid Lipstick in Ruler and delicate, fluttery lashes. They are charming, social, diplomatic, and tactful.
True to being an air sign, Libras also enjoy floral and romantic scents.
8. HARD AND SOFT CONTRAST FOR THE SWEET SCORPIO (23rd October–21st November)
Scorpio is one of the zodiac's most misunderstood zodiacs, often misidentified as a fire sign due to its incredible passion and power. But, in fact, Scorpio is a water sign, though more on the stronger side—think violently crashing, white-capped waves that can capsize ships and sink sailboats. This magnetic water sign is ruled by Mars and Pluto—both volatile planets.
Scorpios are both strong and soft, outwardly composed and inwardly emotional, determined, and powerful. They make bold fashion and makeup statements that mirror their blazing personalities, such as slick and fierce liners, usually softened by a hazy eyeshadow, like how wind tempers water.
As such, Scorpios can easily transition from a sweet, soft daytime look to a more dramatic night look at any time, with smoky eyes and deep wine-colored lipsticks such as the SuperStay Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade Believer.
9. OUT-OF-THE-BOX FOR THE GO-GETTER SAGITTARIUS (22nd November–21st December)
Sagittarians, represented by the archer, are always on the lookout for new information. The final fire sign of the zodiac launches many pursuits like blazing arrows. They are adventurous, free-spirited, ambitious, and intelligent, confidently following their own tastes rather than trends, which means no look is off-limits.
Being world travelers and lifelong learners, they love learning about cultures other than their own. This sign is open to trying out K-beauty and other global trends. While they prefer uncomplicated looks, they are willing to experiment, incorporating new colors like the Maybelline SuperStay Liquid Lipstick in the shade Founder and shapes such as bold, graphic liners and cut-out false lashes.
10. TONED-DOWN BUT GLOWING FOR THE GOAL-ORIENTED CAPRICORN (22nd December–19th January)
Capricorn is the final earth sign of the zodiac, represented by the mythological creature sea-goat. Capricorns, who are ruled by Saturn, have no problem putting their nose to the grindstone to achieve their professional goals and are very conscious of their image. This means sticking with a very classic, clean, and straightforward look that they find most appropriate for their workplace.
They also consider all options before deciding—and it's unlikely to be anything too edgy. A slightly smoky eye with bare-looking lips achieved with the Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayon in the shade Lead the Way is a safe bet that still manages to look effortlessly chic. For Capricorns, it's all about understated looks, so an elegant and chic no-makeup makeup look with glowing skin is their ideal match.
11. UNCONVENTIONAL LOOK FOR THE UNIQUE AND QUIRKY AQUARIUS (20th January–18th February)
Despite the "aqua" in its name, Aquarius is the zodiac's final air sign. The water bearer, the mystical healer who bestows life on the land, is the most humanitarian astrological sign. Aquarians are progressive nonconformists who are unconventional, creative, perceptive, and intelligent.
Ruled by Uranus, Aquarians are known for their innovative, tech-savvy point of view and quirky, futuristic style. Even though they are aware of current trends, they will not allow them to influence their decisions. Rather than adhering to makeup conventions, they are drawn to colors such as Maybelline's Own Your Empire shade in their SuperStay Ink Crayon collection.
Great examples are electric pop colors (think lime green or neon blue nail polish) and silver tones for eyeshadow and highlighter. Alternatively, some Aquarians may prefer a more natural look, experimenting with mind-body products such as CBD skincare, essential oils, and natural deodorant.
12. NO-MAKEUP MAKEUP LOOK FOR THE ARTISTIC PISCES (19th February–20th March)
Pisces is a water sign represented by two fishes swimming in opposite directions, symbolizing Pisces' constant division of attention between fantasy and reality. Ruled by dreamy Neptune, as the final sign, Pisces has absorbed every lesson—the joys and the sorrows, the hopes and the fears—that the other signs have learned.
Pisceans are compassionate, intuitive, caring, and faithful, so a soft makeup suits them—nothing too graphic or stark. A soft color palette of warm, gold blushes look great with a slick eyeliner and nude lippie like the SuperStay Ink Crayon in the shade Enjoy the View. A subtle makeup trend, such as fluffy soap brows, is also a good choice because it does not tie them down or limit them to a single look.
