We mine our regular horoscopes for clues and guidance when it comes to love, life, career, and health questions, so who’s to say we can’t translate the traits of our zodiac signs into beauty – something which features heavily in our day-to-day lives?
It’s Scorpio season, so if you’re born between 23rd October and 22nd November, here’s how you can boost your beauty routine with a little astrology know-how.
You're brave and fearless
You’re no slave to the trends, but you’re all on board when a new, unusual skincare fad breaks out – especially if it has the shock factor. Snail slime isn’t up there on most people’s lists of top ingredients to try, but it’s right up your street. What’s more, your bravery will pay off – slap on Skin79’s Golden Snail Gel Mask because snail slime contains a high concentration of mucin, an ultra-hydrating ingredient which helps to brighten skin and heal scars.
It's important to you that you look good and feel good
You value practical items so it’s important for you that any makeup you use feels as good as it looks. Concealer is the one item most people struggle to find perfection with – either they have great coverage but feel thick and cakey, or they feel light and comfortable but fail to mask your blemishes and dark circles. Rest assured that Makeup Revolution’s Conceal & Define Concealer does it all.
If it works for you, you'll take the lot
When you’ve found a product that you like and that works for you, the obvious next move is to stock up, right? Well as a Scorpio you go one step further and buy one in every colour available. Available in nineteen shades, there’s an ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof to work with every lipstick shade you own so you’ll never have to test-drive a new formula again.
You're drawn to rich, dark colours
You avoid bright, aggressive statement pieces, but when you’re feeling experimental your love for dark, rich colours comes into play. Take a look at your lipstick collection and you probably have a lot more wine, burgundy, and violet shades than you do bright pinks and nudes…right? Celebrate the arrival of Scorpio season with a new addition, Wet n Wild’s MegaLast Lip Colour in Cherry Bomb.
You're put together 24/7
Your friends know you as the one who’s put together 24/7 – which means they also know you as the one guaranteed to have emergency beauty supplies to hand at all times. If you don’t already have the BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Oil Blotting Papers in your bag, add them now – they’re the perfect remedy for combatting the dreaded 3pm shine.
You make choices based on your mood
You dress to match your mood so it only makes sense that you mask to match your mood too, right? Which means you’ve gotta have options… Peter Thomas Roth’s Meet Your Mask Kit has six masks to suit all moods (and skin concerns). Feeling anxious? Calm down with the Cooling Cucumber Mask, or apply the 24K Gold Mask to brighten your spirits after a slow day.
You're all about transformation
Scorpios are known for their love of transformation, so it only makes sense that exfoliation is your favourite part of your skincare routine because it’s the process of literally shedding your skin… Antipodes’ Reincarnation Facial Exfoliator is a creamy scrub, gentle enough to use on a regular basis because it uses jojoba beads rather than abrasive particles. Take the time to massage it in before rinsing to reveal bright and revitalised skin.
You're known for being resourceful
You’re resourceful in all aspects of life, but especially when it comes to beauty – nothing excites you more than a good multitasking beauty product. Because you also love the classics, expect Embryolisse’s Lait-Crème Concentre to become a staple in your stash. It serves as moisturiser, primer, and overnight mask, so it’s perfect for those who like to keep things streamlined.
You have signature looks
Because you prefer finding and sticking to a signature look to switching up your makeup on a daily basis, the Colour Theory palette collection will be right up your street. Each palette contains seven pre-built eyeshadow looks so you can have a signature look for each day of the week. The best part is that there’s no guesswork involved – each look has eight steps from base through to highlight.
You stay true to your favourites
You’re loyal to the true, tried and tested staples, and what beauty product fits that description better than the iconic Mario Badescu Drying Lotion? This hardworking overnight blemish solution has over 700 five star reviews on BEAUTY BAY and even Kylie Jenner is a fan, so you know it’s gonna live up to the hype.
