Your Star Sign’s Perfect Beauty Routine, According to an Astrologer

Share the love!

It’s becoming increasingly hard to navigate with what seems like an endless collection of shiny new beauty products and to determine which products are best for us.

However, help may be at hand when it comes to our decision-making; and it comes in the shape of astrology, according to one celebrity astrologer. 

Our birth date can help uncover our personality traits, strengths, and areas of improvement, claims astrology expert and psychic Inbaal Honigman.

And she tells me that the sign under which you were born can also highlight our tastes and preferences and this can be super helpful when it comes to determining our best beauty buys.

So I’ve asked Honigman to help match you with your perfect beauty routine, based on your star sign. Your perfect product may just be written in the stars after all.

Aries – March 21 to April 19

Energetic, confident, sociable, and always on the go, those born under the sign of Aries will need beauty products that’s as “lightning quick as they are,” says Honigman. This demonstrates the passion that this fire sign is synonymous with.

Honigman adds that “Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of passion,” and that Aries are all about taking action. 

The Aries woman should opt for a warm golden highlighter which adds an ethereal glow fast. 

Or for the Aries on the go, pop an all-in-one lip product where you can simply dot on a few dots for a pretty and flushed look like Benefit’s cult classic Benetint (£17.50 from Cult Beauty UK /$24 from Sephora US) in your pocket where you can simply dot on a few dots for a pretty flushed look.

“A product like this requires a small pocket and no make-up bag and is easy to take on their adventures,” says Honigman, who believes that “red is an ideal colour for those born under the sign of the Ram as they love being bold and visible.”


Taurus – April 20 to May 20

“Peaceful, practical and loving, earthy Taureans favour a timeless and chic makeup look that never goes out of style,” and that stands the test of time, according to Honigman.

“The practical Taurus looks fabulous with an understated eye teamed with a classic red lip combo,” which makes for a seriously romantic look. And what could be more suitable than for the sign ruled by Venus, the planet of love?

Simply add a red in a tone that is suitable for you which will give you the perfect pop ‘o colour to your face. I love MAC’s legendary bullet, the inimitable Ruby Woo (£22 from Boots UK /$23 from MAC US), which gives the perfect pop ‘o colour to your face

A bronzer will help bring the look together and will “provide a smooth cohesive look” for Taureans, says Honigman.

Try a bronzing cream or bronzing drops with a hydrating moisturiser for a real earthy vibe. Simply blend it seamlessly for that ‘just got back from holiday’ glow either all over or just to the contours of your face.


Gemini – May 21 to June 20

Fun loving, creative and smart, those born under the sign of Gemini need make up that’s long-lasting and experimental. Honigman explains that “Gemini’s are real party animals, so products that last all night long are essential.”

Her recommendation? A great mascara is an absolute must, and a wide-eyed look will also ensure that you can at least look wide-awake when it comes to getting lash ready for the next party. 

Born under the planet of Mercury, the planet of communication, Gemini’s are intellectual and creative and are “more likely to experiment with creative makeup looks,” says Honigman.

Bold is the name of the game, and Gemini’s are likely to try “brightly coloured hues” for their eye make up, whether this is as an eyeshadow, liner, or mascara. Consider vibrant shades as standalone colours or mix it up with a stellar eyeshadow palette of metallics, shimmers, satins, and mattes.

Urban Decay’s Naked Metal Mania Palette (£49 from Cult Beauty UK /$59 from Sephora US), which has a stellar collection of wet look metallics, shimmers, satins and mattes including a vibrant hot pink called ‘Power Chords’.

Make sure that your hard work doesn’t slide off whilst partying by adding an enriching eye cream to your skincare routine which will provide a solid base to your eye make up.


Cancer – June 21 to July 22

Loving, loyal, empathetic, and warm, the thoughtful Cancer loves to combine comfort with gorgeousness and naturally gravitates to products that give an “effortless look while affording a healthy glow.”

Honigman explains that Cancer is ruled by the Moon, ‘”the ruler of femininity,” and is a water sign that is synonymous with emotion.  

The girl-next-door look is ideal for those born under the sign of Cancer and a laid back, peachy-toned look in either an apricot or coral shade is the perfect way to give colour to your cheeks without it being too OTT. 

You can adjust the shade to best fit your skin tone, with bronze, copper and rose gold blushers all working beautifully for Cancers which will give you an adorable, flushed look. 

Team it with a lip stain to “bring cohesivity to the face with a healthy and rested glow.”

If you need a little bit of extra help to get that all-important glowy look, why not add a moisturising facial mist into the mix which can be used after you apply your base or during your skincare routine. 

We love Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Dewy Set (from £14 from Boots UK /$15 from Sephora US) for offering a hydrated, glowing look to skin while setting your makeup.

Leo – July 23 to August 22

Another fire sign, the loud, charismatic, confident, and proud Leo “needs a makeup look that simply stops traffic’ says Honigman. And as you might expect, their mane is their crowning glory and a fabulous hair product is an absolute must.

Hair shine spray will add “shine and softness to Leo’s tresses,” creating a show stopping look without it being a crunchy gooey mess.

“If you are the Leo that likes to catch the light,” Honigman recommends a dedicated spray such as Moroccanoil’s Glimmer Shine Spray (£20.85 from Look Fantastic UK /Sephora US) which adds a subtle shimmer to your locks. The Leo is ruled by the sun which is the ruler of identity and Leo’s take pride in knowing exactly who they are and owning their look.

Leo’s can elevate their hair to the next level with a deep-conditioning hair mask to add even more lustre to their tresses and to make it utterly touchable!


Virgo – August 23 to September 22

Organised, considerate and sensible, the “practical and efficient” Virgo suits a makeup look that’s as pulled-together as they are.

Meticulous to a fault, Virgo’s need products that “reflect their own personal traits and that are exceptional” from the get-go, recommends Honigman. A hydrating foundation is a must as this will enhance their good looks without overpowering them.

Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup (£35.55 from Look Fantastic UK /$49 from Sephora US) is a great option thanks to its unbeatable coverage and Virgo-approved perfect coverage.

Virgo’s do pride themselves on getting enough sleep, but if they have been burning the candle at both ends they may need a little bit of extra help in the shape of a good concealer.  And a few swipes of a colour correcting concealer will give that ‘I’ve had eight hours sleep’ look in a matter of seconds. 

Honigman advises that the Virgo is “neat and organised, Virgo loves efficiency and cleanliness. They invest in their beauty from the inside and create a youthful glow using good habits.”

Making simple choices such as regular exercise, drinking plenty of water, and keep their skin hydrated using the best high-SPF hydrating foundation they can find will likely make a Virgo feel put together.


Libra – September 23 to October 22

Elegant, charming, and alluring, Honigman suggests that “Libra’s like to look good and feel good.”  As you might expect, they crave balance and adore a romantic look such as a “deep red lip with delicate fluttery lashes.”

Charming, social, diplomatic, and tactful, Libras are naturally alluring. They crave balance and harmony and suit something romantic like a powerful deep-red lip teamed with soft fluttery lashes.

Good lashes are at the heart of both their day and night looks, and a hard-working office-to-dancefloor mascara is essential.

Opt for one that achieves seductive volume and sensational curl in one go. Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara (from £15 from Cult Beauty UK /$16 from Sephora US) is ideal and achieves seductive volume and sensational curl in one go.

Honigman adds that “those born under the sign of the Scales also appreciate a cohesive look.” So why not team it with a subtle sweep of a neutral eyeshadow to really make your eyes stand out?

Keep your eyelashes and lips moisturised with soothing balms and serums that will also keep them looking great, especially in the colder months. 


Scorpio – October 23 to November 21

Original, emotional, and intense, Honigman states that “Scorpio’s who are a water sign gravitate towards a powerful look.”

She adds that they’re open to trying new things and taking risks. “A bold lip, strong contouring and deep eyes all together? Why not?” says Honigman.

A vibrant highlighter that packs a punch for an out of this world glow will also create a dynamic base for their look day look and Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife (£28 from Boots UK /$40 from Sephora US) will give a soft-focus effect that’s worthy of an Instagram filter.

The element of surprise is also a signature trait of those born under the sign of Scorpio, who are ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation. Honigman recommends that Scorpios could add a “surprising flash of purple, or an unexpected green shimmer” to their makeup look in the shape of either a bold eye or nail colour.  

A vibrant nail polish requires smooth hands and cuticles, so make sure you regularly apply hand cream and cuticle oil to your hands when you do your at home mani.


Sagittarius – November 22 to December 21

Unpredictable, adventurous, intelligent and a little bit reckless, fiery Sagittarians are confident to follow their own path and tend to eschew classic looks and trends which means “no look is off limits,” says Honigman.

“The Sagittarius will try anything once,” she explains and they will apparently never regret a purchase because they weren’t going to use it forever anyway.

They’re also less likely to invest in expensive beauty products and will favour high street purchases where they can really indulge in their experimental side, according to the expert.

There’s an abundance of quirky yet cool coloured eyeliners that the Sagittarius can use to update their makeup look.

We love Barry M’s Bold Waterproof Eyeliner in Purple (£3,99 from Boots UK /$5.99 from Feel Unique US).  Or for those wanting to take it to the next level why not try a bright yellow or fluro pink to make your neon dreams come true?

All eyes will be on you, so make sure that your skin is in tip-top condition and a gentle exfoliator is an absolute must for an even-toned complexion.


Capricorn – December 22 to January 19

Earthy, reliable, but at the same time luxury loving, the practical Capricorn prefers “high quality over bargain offerings,” says Honigman

Fans of a classic look over an edgier aesthetic, they are highly driven, independent, mature, and loyal and tend to stick to the makeup and beauty brands that they know and love as opposed to trying something new.

The Capricorn look is steeped in luxury and a nude lip is the perfect way to add a touch of elegance and class to your face. Nude doesn’t have to mean boring, and it’s never been easier to find your perfect match whether your skin is fair or deep. 

Nude is an all-encompassing term that can range from pale taupe to neutral beige to rich brown and Capricorn’s can invest in a nude lipstick and team it with a closely matched lip liner like NYX Professional Makeup’s Slim Lip Liner Pencil in Nude Truffle (£4 from Boots UK /$5 from NYX US) for the ultimate defined look.

Honigman adds that the “mind/body axis combining wellbeing and beauty is exactly the vibe for the Capricorn,” so they may also enjoy the self-care benefits of using a facial oil in their beauty routine every day.

Quality has no palette, and the Capricorn look is steeped in luxury; power looks that transcend any era is how you recognise those born under the sign of the sea-goat.


Aquarius – January 20 to February 18

Individual, original, creative, and smart as a whip, Aquarians are not people that like to conform; and this air sign needs their make up to reflect this.

Honigman says that “sustainability and environmental issues” are important to Aquarius so their favourite look- which tends to veer towards an ethereal and vintage aesthetic- will not come at a cost to the planet.

The perfect product for Aquarius? Honigman thinks that “refillable powder eyeshadows” ticks all the right boxes, as they encourage long-term sustainability habits that are kind to the planet while helping you stay gorgeous.

Aquarians will love eyeshadow palettes that are refillable and customisable, balancing convenience, individuality whilst not compromising on their green credentials.

Alternatively, they may enjoy colours that reflect their affinity with nature. “Gentle palette of pastels” suits this air sign, says Honigman, creating a barely-there beauty for those born under the sign of the Water-bearer. 

Try popping a sweep of Mac’s Mint Condition (£20 from John Lewis UK /$23 from MAC US) over your lids to your eye crease for a gorgeously green look.

Make sure that water is a huge part of your skincare routine, with water-based cleansers and moisturisers which will add a dreamy glow to your face. 


Pisces – February 19 to March 20

Romantic, intuitive, compassionate and kind, for those born under the sign of Pisces, a soft, barely-there makeup look is always a winner.

Their gentle and emotional personalities suit a softer makeup look and one of the best ways to achieve this is with a gentle colour palette of warm blushes teamed with just-kissed rosy lips.

Ruled by the planet of dreams, Neptune, the Pisces can also favour a ‘vintage-style look’ which may take elements from the fifties, sixties or even the seventies. A hard-working eyeliner will allow them to achieve the look that they want, whether this is a kohl pencil or a liquid eyeliner for a glam retro look.

Both make for great options for a timeless winged look. Add a pop of eyeshadow in watery shades of blue and indigo give a feel of the mermaid to those born under the sign of the Fish. Why not try a sheer, shimmery eyeshadow in a shade of blue like NYX Ultimate Glow Shots Liquid Eyeshadow in Blueberry Bank (£10 from Boots UK /$11 from NYX US) and wing it out for a fun and classic look.

The Pisces is another water sign, so use a super-moisturising facial oil to really add a dewy tone to your complexion for that all-important youthful glow.
