Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is the Fire element in the list of the 12 zodiac signs. They are said to be born as natural leaders who usually take the first initiative to do something. They are claimed to be dynamic as well as charismatic. Being a fiery zodiac sign, red would suit an Aries the best! Bold colours like red and orange would enhance their personality and make them sizzle wherever they go; this also reflects their strength, passion and energy. Similarly with the nail varnishes, the shades of rich plum and sizzling reds suit them a lot. Aries is denoted by the symbol Ram, and hence are considered a strong and forceful personality. Other options for them are pastel shades and bright and natural colour lipstick. This choice of make-up demonstrates confidence, calmness and knowledge of the situation.


TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

The ruling planet of Taurus is Venus. Taureans are a bunch of fun loving people who love everything in excess be it materialistic, emotional, fun and even beauty. They are crazy and like expensive things! Taureans belong to group of people who are practical in nature. As the bulls have an earthy nature, they should opt more for neutral colors when choosing their make-up. Taureans do not like to look vulgar so they should avoid bright colours and try to achieve a natural look or go for smoky shades – grey, silver, white, champagne and berry – which would suit their strong zodiac the most. Taurus people are spectacular and gain all their objectives once they set their heart into accomplishing them! They are earthy and artistic too.


GEMINI (May21 – June 20)

This is the one of the most sensual and dualistic signs of the zodiac. Being considered a dual nature person they mostly blend light and dark colours and include the resulted colour palette in their daily life. They are vigorous talkers, imaginative, witty and usually the ‘bright light in a gloom’. They are known for their ability of gathering news and information from various sources. But Gemini’s always find it very difficult to make a choice when it comes to cosmetics. They should go for peach or pale pink which would enhance their spunky nature more. Matte textures and contrasting combinations suit their sign for make-up.


CANCER (June21 – July 22)

Cancers are typical home lovers. They love to be surrounded by family and close ones and feel comfortable when at-home like surrounding. Some element of white is recommended to Cancerians; in this case having the colour palette maps best with their comfortable and homely nature. Cancers are extremely honest and straight forward; they are honest about whom they love or mistrust. The hues that would suit them the best are natural shades as well as the nude hues. Opting for pink is a good idea, pick shades like soft rose or another muted tone.



LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Another royal Fire sign is here, coming as the sign of Leo. Leo is powerful, gorgeous and courageous. Being bold in nature, Leos should go for shades like orange, pink and red which are the best friends of their looks. Leos are the people who prefer to be the center of attention and attraction at every event irrespective of where they are! They are the bell of the ball, loud and boisterous in a positive way (no doubts here being a zodiac with their symbol as Lion). They crave for attraction, optimism and shine for their looks. Using those shades for the eyes as eyeliners are a great thing Leos may opt for.



VIRGO (August 23- September-22)

Virgos fall under the earth element and are usually associated with traits such as judgmental, extremely choosy as well as critical in nature. As the Virgos have a quaint nature, the hues that would complement them the most are metallic (bronze) shades. Universal shades like peachy and pale pink are some of the most suitable options for them. Thus, eyes, cheeks, and lips are the primary targets of accents. Other soothing shades include royal blue, which also coincides with their naturally tranquil and pure nature. Thus using this shade for liners is the best thing you can do with it. Opting for mascara of this shade is also good. The influence of being an Earth sign is also noticeable here as they are fun to be with even after being so choosy and selective.


LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

The next bright representative of the Air signs is Libra, always characterised by the uniqueness and the creatively shaped balance and harmony. Being balanced, they should go for merlot colour. It’s not coincidental that the best colour shades for this sign are pink, yellow and aqua, since they nicely reflect the nature of the people born under this sign. Also, using some descriptive accessories or specific elements is a do, and for maximum cool results, your pick may be a cool and exquisite purse or any other type of an accessory. Matching a light blue eye shadow with some white accents or silver tones is a great way to accentuate the eyes effectively. Libra is a zodiac sign that detests to be left alone, i.e. they hate being a loner. Everything about them involves partnership, be it marriage, business or even dancing!


SCORPIO (October23 – November 21)

Eye-catching, sensual, enigmatic and beautiful are all key words describing the nature of a Scorpion. Being passionate, they should opt for maroon shade. They manage to combine their water nature with warm shades like burgundy and berry which reflect the senses of power, love, affection and mystery. These shades are generally used for lining the eyes; for more flawless looks, you may use some shimmery textures for make-up variants such as smoky eyes. Scorpions are serious and brave people who love dominating over the other and are extremely passionate for the one they love.



SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarians are intellectual, clear-headed and extremely spiritual people. On the one hand, they tend to use the shades typical of the Fire signs, on the other they’re always leaving some space for experiments. At times they also go for crazy and unexpected turns and solutions. Sensitive shades like purple may be included in their choices. Brown hues would suit them the most.




CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorns are one of the brightest representatives of the Earth signs group and this is primarily reflected with their inclination towards using earthy shades. Being one of the greatest tones of neutrals, brown may help them create some natural and impressive make-up looks. Shimmery accents and pastel tones may also be used, but the simplicity should not be neglected. Deep pink would suit them the most. Capricorns are extremely dedicated and ambitious people striving to achieve all their goals to reach the zenith.



AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarians are great philanthropists and worry too much about earth and people around them. Many of us think Aquarius should be a Water sign, but in fact, this is one of the most eye-catching representatives of the Air sign. Being of tranquil nature, nude hues would complement them the best. Using a bronzer for the skin is another great idea. Shades like purple suits in terms of make-up and it also provides the Aquarian with some more chances to experiment. They are smart and quick-witted people.



PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Being the fish of the zodiac, Pisces is a child at heart. They are emotional and spiritual, so softer shades are the final factor on the way to perfection. Being emotional, they should go for fierce hues such as reds and plums. They have a penchant for collecting beautiful shoes for their beautiful feet. They can rock sea green like no other. Emphasising the eyes is their favourite beauty move so shimmery shadows and plenty of mascara help add some drama. Also they love the effects of a highlighter to help them grow. A Piscean girl’s hair can be anywhere from shoulder length to super long.
