Inspired by Astrology | Makeup For Each Star sign

A R I E S | MARCH 21ST TO APRIL 19TH | CONFIDENT, ENTHUSIASTIC, HONEST & PASSIONATE

This graphic liner represents the sharp and often blunt dialect of an Aries person. Accompanied by a bold lip and bushy brow that is cool, yet effortless. I finished it all off with a berry blush across the nose that reflects the sensitive side of Aries, the side that wears its heart on its sleeve and experiences life with playful curiosity.

T A U R U S | APRIL 20TH TO MAY 20TH | PRACTICAL, DETERMINED, HEDONISTIC & SENSUAL

I’ve never met a Taurus that cant rock a red lip 💋 I chose an earthy green-gold eye, which represents the grounded and abundant spirit of a Taurus. And a timeless red lip that embodies their striking presence and the beauty surrounding them. You’ll more often than not find them in an environment that aligns with their ruling planet of Venus. Venus-ruled placements are surrounded by love, beauty, comfort and compassion. They are the voice of reason and in my opinion, they give the best advice.

G E M I N I | MAY 21ST TO JUNE 20TH | ENERGETIC, CHARISMATIC, QUICK-WITTED & NEVER BORING

Geminis are so full of life and energy. They are like sunshine in a way that we couldn’t live without them 🌤 To represent their effortless charm and charisma, I kept the skin fresh and peachy. The eyes start off with a pearly pink that showcases their soft and thoughtful outer shell, then fades into a rich deep blue that represents their electrifying inner world and vibrant imagination.

I chose these colours to show the duality of a Gemini, aka their reputation of being two-faced. I roll my eyes at that comment because a lot of Geminis I meet are simply introverted extroverts! Maybe they aren’t two faced and they are just shy? Gemini gets too much shit and I love them sm

C A N C E R | JUNE 21ST TO JULY 22ND | EMOTIONAL, LOYAL, SENTIMENTAL & EMPATHETIC

The first person that comes to mind when I think of the cancer star sign is Lana Del Rey. This cool-toned shadow is very much inspired by her go-to aesthetic with a subtle resemblance to her classic doe-eyed liner, but with a twist! I chose cool-toned browns to create this soft double wing, as cancer people can be kind and gentle, but don’t get on their bad side as they won’t hold back.

They are a water sign ruled by the moon, so I wanted to add a silver shimmer on the lid to capture their calming and caring exterior, and blue glitter under the eye to express their ability to experience emotion powerfully and their ability to empathise with others 💧

L E O | JULY 23RD TO AUGUST 22ND | GENEROUS, CLEVER, FIESTY & PROTECTIVE

I was going to do a classic bronze shimmer all over the lid as this sign is ruled by the sun ☀️, but it felt like it didn’t capture the true vibrancy of a Leo! I opted for a fluorescent orange cut crease instead to showcase their passion, generosity and bright humour. I had to include some sort of pink/purple as their hearts are as big as their heads haha (a tasteless joke). I love my fiery Leo’s that don’t take life for granted and if you do too, make sure you tell them because it’ll put a pep in their step. If I could only hang out with one sign for the rest of my life it’d probs be y’all 🔥

V I R G O | AUGUST 23RD TO SEPTEMBER 22ND | CREATIVE, ANALYTICAL, PRACTICAL & KIND

Every Virgo I’ve ever met has always had a very precise way of expressing themselves! Be it in unique makeup techniques, to carefully constructed outfits that match from head to toe. To represent their curated expression, I put together this super detailed graphic liner (heavily inspired by the talented @maytahmi ), with deep mossy green on the lower lash line as they are a textbook earth sign 📗 (critical thinkers, grounded and organised). I paired this with a super soft and shy pink lip as they oftentimes have a hard time communicating what’s really going on in their methodical minds 🧠 🌸💗

L I B R A | SEPTEMBER 23RD TO OCTOBER 22ND | CHARMING, ADAPTIVE, DIPLOMATIC & SOCIABLE

Much like the scales that represent them, there are two sides to every libra! The soft and romantic side that comes directly from being ruled by Venus, the planet of love. And the diplomatic side that drives their need for fairness and harmony ⚖️ All that with a sprinkle of charm ✨. When thinking of Libra I visualise pink and white, as we are always trying to see the light in life and live for the moment, be it falling in love hard and fast or doing something spontaneous. I tried to bring that to life with the soft yet bright eye look. But then to represent the passion of a Libra, I incorporated a glossy red lip. This was heavily influenced by one of my favourite Libra’s, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who shows up in her red lip no matter the occasion.

S C O R P I O | OCTOBER 24TH TO NOVEMBER 21ST | POWERFUL, PASSIONATE, SPIRITUAL & MAGNETIC

I can always tell a Scorpio from their eyes! Be it big, bright or full of emotion, it is their most prominent and enticing feature. As I don’t have super telling eyes (no Scorpio placements) myself, I had to go all out on a dazzling blue smokey eye. A reflection of their deep and honest understanding of the world at large, and their desire to fearlessly experience it all. Out of all our emotionally driven water signs, I feel Scorpios are able to truly experience and learn from their pain and pleasure. From this, they are able to direct it towards a meaningful passion project or to push themselves into a better version of themselves. All while keeping those around them begging for more 💎

SAGITTARIUS | NOVEMBER 22ND TO DECEMBER 21ST | BOLD, BRAVE, DARING & ALLURING

NOBODY lights up a room like a Sagittarius ⚡️ Having a Sagi by your side is the greatest gift as they will push you out of your comfort zone and tell it like it is (they are the ones to ask if you REALLY wanna know if your outfit looks good). They never cut corners and always live and love to the fullest. So with that, I felt they deserved a striking gold glitter liner to represent their intense and outgoing energy. Fluffy brows and hair slicked back works well as they don’t shy away from the spotlight.


C A P R I C O R N | DECEMBER 22ND TO JANUARY 19TH | CAPTIVATING, DRIVEN, RESPONSIBLE & RESERVED

Nothing says effortlessly cool like a 90s makeup look. Capricorns spend a lot of their time working hard to create a life they believe they deserve, so they are often quite reserved in their style and demeanour. This called for simple skin and an easy glossy eye, it’s eye-catching and classy without trying at all. I chose a deep brown lip as I feel a Capricorn always draw in the people around them, whether that’s to inspire or to remind others (their enemies perhaps) that they can’t be stopped on the path to their dreams. Some may think a bold red or bright pink lip would resemble this, but they never show off their success by bragging, it’s always displayed articulately. Therefore a brown represents this sophistication well 🤎✨

A Q U A R I U S | JANUARY 20TH TO FEBRUARY 18TH | ECCENTRIC, PROGRESSIVE ALLURING & INTROSPECTIVE

Aquarius people will always be the leaders of their own path, and although they are open and energetic in their relationships, they will usually walk this path alone. It’s what they need! To be free in their creative expression and personal growth. And to live a life that inspires others👼🏼 One of the characters that represent true Aquarian energy is Jules from Euphoria, she’s always captivating and up to something. This graphic eye represents that eccentric expression, but I chose purple because amethyst is their birthstone 💟

P I S C E S | FEBRUARY 19TH TO MARCH 20TH | DREAMERS, LISTENERS, INTUITIVE & SENSITIVE

Pisces are constantly torn between two worlds, their reality and their imagination. This is shown through the two fish in their symbol ♓️ They are constantly trying to pull the magic from their imagination into their everyday life, and are devoted to achieving a colourful yet grounded experience for themselves! I wanted to use these vibrant pastels in a structured way, to represent the duality of these states of being for Pisces people. The colours are dreamy but still coordinated. 😗

If you saw all these posts per season on my Instagram, I’m sorry for the recycled material on the blog but I wanted to compile the year-long journey of looks! I hope these resonate for you and your sign and evoke inspiration xx
