Horoscope Beauty: A Guide to Your Makeup Zodiac Sign

I have stellar news, everyone! Since quarantine, horoscopes have started to rise in popularity again. In fact, statistics say that they haven’t gained this much traffic since the majority of us stopped reading them in magazines as teens (how I miss the days of seeing if Nick Jonas and I were a star match in J-14 and Tiger Beat!). Luckily, horoscopes are back and more specific than ever, with horoscope beauty, horoscope makeup, and even horoscope nail art taking off on Tik Tok and all around the internet. 

To hone in on horoscope beauty, we’ve created a guide to help you uncover your strengths, weaknesses, and personality traits, along with the makeup shades and looks that are perfect for your zodiac sign. Let Subtl Beauty (and the stars) guide you to find your horoscope beauty reading below:

Aries:

March 21st - April 19th

As a fire sign, Aries burn bright with passion. They’re daredevils with adventurous, determined, and confident personality traits. Aries are also known to be passionate, motivated leaders that build community with a cheerful determination. But they can easily lose themselves in details and nuances. 

ARIES HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: We believe that as an Aries, you need a makeup look that’s as trail-blazing as you are. To lean into horoscope beauty as an Aries, try a bold, fiery eye look that’s going to bring the heat this summer. But don’t forget the highlighter! Throw on a shimmery hue that’ll have you glistening and shining with the stars:

Fellow Aries: Reese Witherspoon, Lady Gaga, Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart

Taurus:

April 20th - May 20th

Tauruses are known to be reliable, practical, loving, and unshakable. Considering how trustworthy they are, Tauruses have no trouble making friends, but they can sometimes be overindulgent and selfish. However, they have a regal quality about them, making them graceful and diligent workers

TAURUS HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: When it comes to Tauruses and horoscope beauty, timeless, chic looks are key (think a minimalistic eye and red lip combo). But, considering summer is upon us, try breathing new life into your makeup routine by switching to a sweat-proof one. You can also try playing around with your usual lip look to give it a summer flair: 

Fellow Tauruses: Adele, Gigi Hadid, Jessica Alba, Janet Jackson, Cher

Gemini:

May 21st  - June 20th

Oh Geminis, how we love you! Geminis tend to be bubbly, curious, smart, funny, affectionate, and the life of the party (which makes them the perfect summer BFF!). On the flip side, Geminis can be indecisive, impulsive, unreliable, and nosey. This means that while telling a Gemini your deepest darkest secret isn’t in the cards, they’re still a ton of fun. 

GEMINI HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: If you’re a Gemini, you’ve probably found yourself experimenting with creative makeup looks (think Euphoria-esque shadows). Since you have no trouble spicing things up in the makeup department or making friends, you’re no doubt a busybody, so try taking your day look to the next level by repurposing it for the evening:

Fellow Geminis: Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, Venus Williams, Lucy Hale

Cancer:

June 21st - July 22nd

If you’re a Cancer then count yourself lucky! Cancerians (the plural name for the Cancer zodiac) are known to be understanding, loyal, and thoughtful, but they can also be overly sensitive and insecure. Their elemental sign is water, which – when you consider the emotional depths associated with this sign – makes sense.

CANCER HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: For Cancerians, horoscope beauty calls for a monotone makeup look, which is really trendy right now. So basically, using colors that are in the same family for your blush, lips, and eyeshadow will be your go-to this summer. If you’re not sure what shade to try, check out this peachy tutorial:

Fellow Cancers: Margot Robbie, Ariana Grande, Meryl Streep, Selena Gomez

Leo:

July 23rd - August 22nd

As a fierce lioness, Leos have rizz (AKA charisma), confidence, and a strong sense of honor. But, they are often misunderstood easily as they can be arrogant, egotistical, and very inflexible. The elemental sign of a Leo is fire, giving them a hard-headed, resolute, and rock-steady perspective on anything they're connected to.

LEO HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: To lean into horoscope beauty as a Leo, try a sultry, glam look with lashes that give your eye a feline shape. And, don’t forget to take a tip from Kim K. and contour like you mean it! If you’re a Leo that’s new to makeup, here’s a fun (and easy) glammed-up tutorial to try:

Fellow Leos: Sandra Bullock, Megan Markle, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence

Virgo:

August 23rd - September 22nd

Virgos are pulled-together, organized, considerate, and meticulous. They approach life very logically, but as an earth sign, they’re perfectionists at heart and aren’t afraid to improve their skills through diligent and consistent practice. Since Virgos do aim for perfection, they can easily become overly critical.

VIRGO HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: As a Virgo, you probably favor makeup looks that are as slick and systemized as your personality, which means that crazily-shaped eyeliner and bold lips might not be your cup of tea. Instead, you may find yourself gravitating toward natural looks that are on-the-go-friendly. Even with a neutral makeup look – worry not, Virgo – you can still glow this summer! Here’s how:

Fellow Virgos: Beyonce, Zendaya, Blake Lively, Cameron Diaz

Libra:

September 23rd - October 22nd

You know how Paris is known as the City of Love? WellLibras are basically that when it comes to zodiac signs. They’re romantic, charming, tactful, and diplomatic with a naturally alluring quality. Since they crave harmony and balance, they will avoid conflict at any cost, meaning that they often put themselves last.

LIBRA HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: If you’re a Libra, the horoscope beauty signs point toward romantic makeup looks that match your personality. Mauve, pink, and red shades probably speak to your soul, which is great because they’ll never go out of style. Put yourself first in 2023 by trying out some new makeup looks like this Libra-inspired one made just for you:

Fellow Libras: Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Duff, Gwen Stefani

Scorpio:

October 23rd - November 21st

Scorpios – the strong and soft zodiac sign – are commonly outwardly composed and inwardly emotional. They’re famously discreet and even secretive, with an air of mystery around them. But, due to their need for control, Scorpios can oftentimes seem intolerant, manipulative, possessive, jealous, and even paranoid. 

SCORPIO HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: For Scorpios, a look that conveys confidence is key. What could be more confident and bold than a red lip? If you’re a Scorpio that’s intimidated by a red lippy, no worries. Give this tutorial a watch to see three ways you can wear red lipstick both subtly and boldly:

Fellow Scorpios: Kendall Jenner, Emma Stone, Anne Hathaway, Rachel McAdams

Sagittarius:

November 22nd - December 21st

Sagittarians (the plural name for the Sagittarius zodiac) always come in clutch with the good vibes! They’re commonly gifted, wise beyond their years, and truly one-of-a-kind. Though Sagittarians are independent and sensitive, they can be blunt, careless, and judgemental. The most obvious attribute of a Sagittarian is their sense of freedom. 

SAGITTARIUS HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: As a freedom-seeking Sagittarius, you probably have a heap of adventurous shades in your makeup arsenal. You like to keep your looks as interesting as your personality, which is why you’re a sucker for glitter, highlighter, and Taylor Swift (everyone is, right?). Taylor is actually a Sagittarius, so in celebration of her, try out this dewy look from the “Lavender Haze” video: 

Fellow Sagittarians: Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Tina Turner 

Capricorn:

December 22nd - January 19th

Capricorns are often seen as overachievers with persistent, practical, and sensitive qualities. They’re especially known for being hardworking and making success look easy. Capricorns love and seek out convenience 100% of the time. However, they’re sometimes viewed as pessimistic, greedy, prideful, and stubborn.

CAPRICORN HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: As a Capricorn, you’re probably well aware that you don’t need a makeup case full of products to get a flawless look. You likely find yourself reaching for multi-functional staples, which is why you favor the Subtl Beauty Stack. If you’re a Capricorn that hasn’t given the Stack a go yet, check out this fun tutorial using the Starter Stack

Fellow Capricorns: Michelle Obama, Dolly Parton, Mary J Blige, Zooey Deschanel

Aquarius:

January 20th - February 18th

Aquarians (the plural name for the Aquarius zodiac) are non-conformists with creative and smart personalities. Their elemental sign is air, which – like air - Aquarians lack a distinct form and resist classification. While they’re sensitive and calm, Aquarians can have a stubborn streak that’s been known to get them in trouble.

AQUARIUS HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: If you’re an Aquarian, you probably don’t bow down to the makeup patriarchy. Instead, you embrace fun colors, textures, and shapes that suit your mood and personality. If you’ve never tried giving copper eyeshadow a go, it’s a definite Aquarian-approve shade! Check out this look:

Fellow Aquarius: Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Shakira, Chloe Grace Moretz

Pisces:

February 19th - March 20th

Pisces are filled with feminine energy as they’re compassionate, generous, intuitive, and easily led. They’re known to be highly imaginative and creative. While they’re excellent at being in tune with others, Pisces often feel vulnerable to criticism, causing them to worry about the effect their actions may have on their peers. 

PISCES HOROSCOPE BEAUTY LOOK: As a Pisces, you probably like to venture out by trying fun, whimsical makeup looks. This makes sense as your zodiac sign is two fish going in opposite directions, representing your tendency to teeter between fantasy and reality. To lean into your horoscope beauty as a Pisces, try this dreamy look:

Fellow Pisces: Rihanna, Drew Barrymore, Emily Blunt, Lupita Nyong’o
