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 Taurus season, so if you’re born between 20th April and 21st May, here’s how you can boost your beauty routine with a little astrology know-how.
You easily get stuck in a rut
So why not take advantage of all the recent beauty innovation and try something new for a change? Revolution Skincare are hot on the biggest beauty trends and buzzwords – one of which is EGF (Revolution Skincare EGF Serum), an ingredient with impressive skin benefits ranging from reducing the appearance of wrinkles to improving hydration, and preventing pigmentation.
You like to make a statement
Whether it’s your outfit or your beauty looks, making an impact isn’t something you save for special occasions. Embrace the trend for bold, bright eye looks and invest in the BEAUTY BAY EYN Bright 16 Colour Palette for unlimited eyecatching looks.
…and you look for products that are too. Your makeup bag is stashed with steadfast favourites that you can count on and that won’t leave you disappointed. If you haven’t already, and you’re in need of a new contour powder, check out Kevyn Aucoin’s Sculpting Powder. It’s so failsafe, you’ll never stop repurchasing.
You’d rather use a product that does the job right than a fast fix. If you’re looking to really transform your skin, pick up The Ordinary’s Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion. Retinol typically takes a few months to give visible results but for clearer, brighter skin, it’s well worth it.
You appreciate form and function
You’ll find yourself attracted to Instagrammable packagaing and eye-catching colours, but only if the product is practical and effective. Skin Gym’s Jade Heart Gua Sha Crystal Sculpty Tool will look right at home in your next Instagram flatlay and in addition, has multiple proven benefits for skin (ranging from reducing puffiness to improving product absorption).
You're an earth sign
As an Earth sign you feel a constant tie to the planet, so you appreciate the value of natural ingredients like clay and charcoal. For your next face mask purchase, consider Dr Botanicals’ Charcoal Superfood Mattifying Face Mask, which uses activated charcoal powder to draw out impurities.
You prefer to save up and invest in high-quality items that to opt for quick, cheap wins. Luxe brand Rodial will be right up your street – their supercharged skincare and high-performance makeup are sure to impress. Check out the Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops for the ultimate glowy skin upgrade.
You're drawn to pastels
Whether in fashion, beauty, or homeware, you’re drawn to feminine pastel shades of blue and pink. Already stocked up with pastel eyeshadow palettes? For a new twist, embrace the trend in a different way by experimenting with pastel highlighters. Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Dream Glow Kit contains everything you need.
You love relaxing
Okay, we all do. But Taureans in particular love being in peaceful environments, surrounded by calm colours, soothing sounds, and fragrannt aromas. To aid your relaxation (wherever you are), keep a bottle of Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile And Lavender to hand. The delicate, floral scent is perfect for inducing calm and relaxation.
Taurus rules the neck
Since the Taurus body part is the neck and shoulders, it’s an area you should take special care of – and we’re all a little guilty of neglecting our neck and favouring just about every other part of our skin. Start taking your moisturiser and serums onto your neck when you apply them, or for some extra TLC to the neck area invest in Oh K’s Firming Tech Neck mask, which contains powerful ingredients that deeply penetrate skin.
