According to astrology, gazing at the starry night sky can tell you a lot about your life, your traits, and your habits. Personally, I’m more of a sceptic (I find it difficult to believe that being born at a certain time can affect your life in more ways than one) and when it comes to stargazing, I opt to only use it (or the GPS in my phone) to search for directions, but there are many who have immense faith in the discipline.
For those who do, and who love makeup dearly as well, we’ve curated a list of cosmetic products as preferred by certain Zodiac signs (grouped by their elemental nature) based on studies by experts in both fields. Find your’s...
- The Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
- The Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
- The Air Signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)
- The Earth Signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo)
The Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
The Water Signs, quite like their element, have waves of emotions built in them, often submerged to an extent as well. They’re sensitive and can read the vibes of the people around them pretty well. As for the products, Cancers like to opt for products that are nourishing in nature, such as a lip balm or a moisturiser.
On the other hand, the submerged mysterious side of Scorpios prefers products like mascaras that help them enhance this side of their personality. Pisces, like the other water signs, are drawn towards highlighting the eye region as well, going for cosmetics such as the eyeliner, preferably in a matte or a metallic shade.
The Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
The Fire Signs are known to burn bright, be spontaneous and inspire others with their light. Often with strong personalities and ready for any eventuality, the Aries people are seen to opt for brow products like brow pencils that are natural and neat, creating no unnecessary fuss. Leos are known to love the spotlight as much as they love the sunlight, and are often seen going for products like bronzers that bring out and build on their inner warmth and glow. Those with a Sagittarius like staying fresh all the while the sun shines and in similar fashion, opt for cosmetics like setting sprays that help keep their look intact all day long.
The Air Signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)
Air Signs are people with free and flexible personalities, who love being able to breathe freely and find inspiration in open spaces. Flirty and expressive, Librans and Gemini like to go for colourful products like lip scrubs and nail paints. Amongst all signs, the Aquarius are perhaps the most expressive and love highlighting their eyes with strong eye shadow colours.
The Earth Signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo)
Most people would consider those with Earth signs to be quite earthy (or even rather boring), associating them with colours like brown or gray. However, even with their ‘no-nonsense’ attitude, Earth signs like Capricorn can actually be a lot of fun, opting for lipsticks of just about every shade.
Taurus people like to make the most of their time and prefer home treatments over any others, often going for products like face masks or homemade scrubs. Virgos, perhaps on account of being the most practical of the lot, like to keep it simple and fundamental, cleansers being their primary product of choice.
