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 Virgo season, so if you’re born between 23rd August and 23rd September, here’s how you can boost your beauty routine with a little astrology know-how.
You're an Earth sign
Being an earth sign means you’re strongly set in your ways and you like tradition. When it comes to masking, stick to old-school clay-based formulas like the Alya Skin Australian Pink Clay Mask, which utilises kaolin and bentonite clays to draw out impurities and leave skin clean and clear.
Your lucky stone is a sapphire
Your birthstone is a sapphire so you’re gonna want to surround yourself with all things blue to help focus the energies of the planet and your sign. It could be something as simple as ditching the regular pink version and picking up Beautyblender Sapphire instead.
You're a perfectionist
You’re always paying attention to the smallest of details and unlike others, you easily notice the ones that make a difference. You have a methodical approach to dealing with them which ensures that nothing is left unaccounted for… Keep a pair of Tweezerman tweezers to hand, because if there’s one thing in the beauty world that’s going to benefit from your perfectionism, it’s keeping your eyebrows in check.
You're a generous friend
You’re a thoughtful friend and you demonstrate it on a day-to-day basis, your friends are a seamless part of your life, and your favourite way to spend time with them is to get busy and do something productive together. Get masking – it’s a bonding activity with benefits! For options, stock up on one of Nugg’s mask kits – they’re ideal for sharing because there’s just enough for two applications per pod.
Being healthy means a lot to you and is something you’re prepared to invest time and energy in to see results. For an extra boost (that takes little to no time at all) invest in a supplement like The Beauty Chef’s Cleanse Powder. Simply mix with food or drink to feel the detoxifying and purifying benefits of super-greens
You're good with your hands
You demonstrate your caring and creative nature with your hands, so put them to good use when it comes to self-care and pick up the Oskia Massage Candle. Made with a nourishing body oil, once lit the oil can be poured onto skin and massaged in, leaving it soft, hydrated and rose-scented.
You're super organised
You seek organisation and practicality in all aspects of your life, so it only makes sense that you keep your makeup brush collection in perfect order – even when you’re on the go. Invest in the MyKitCo’s Travel Buddy to keep your kit protected and tidy – its detachable pouches, pockets, and piuches are an organisation-lovers’ dream.
You keep it clean
As well as being organised you’re also incredibly neat and tidy, so it goes without saying that you like to keep your nails in flawless condition too. You’re rarely seen without a perfect mani, which is a whole lot easier when your lucky colours are neutral, muted shades like white, gold, and beige that don’t appear as obvious when they start to chip. OPI’s Infinite Shine in Tanacious Spirit will be right up your street.
Your pair new trends with old classics
While you like to keep up with new trends, you don’t like wearing anything too outrageous, so when you try them, you like to pair them with safe classics. When it comes to eyeshadow, a palette like Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Norvina will be right up your street – it contains on-trend purple alongside failsafe neutrals and metallics.
You have fixed routines
You’re all routine and you like a regime that you can be fully involved with to make you feel productive, so when it comes to skincare seek a prescription of products that you can use in the same order day in and day out. The Mario Badescu Travel Favourites Exclusive Set makes it easy – all the essentials in one place.
