The arrival of September—after the fanfare of summer has waned—is a bit like waking up on a Monday morning after a weekend of fun. You regret nothing, but reality sets in and you realize you’re gonna have to get it together in order to pull off this thing called adulthood. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with your monthly beauty horoscope so you can look great as you pick up the pieces and head into a new season.
This is peak virgo season, and you’re likely feeling an influx of possibility, but also responsibility. Your best move right now is to stick to the basics, double down on your strengths, and remember to do a little self-care with, perhaps, a natural avocado & honey facial. You’ll be asked to show up this month, so show up shining!
You’re so good at balancing out all the things happening around you that only a careful observer would notice your stylish mastery of situations. And while that’s a beautiful gift, now is a great time to take matters into your own hands and make yourself stand out from the crowd. Instead of traditional fall hues like auburn or plum, opt for something a bit more dramatic, like a black on black, matte and gloss mani.
If your head is spinning with all the strategizing you’ve been doing lately, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is you’re not crazy—it’s hard work making the chaos of life run like clockwork. The bad news is there’s more to do. So have a good stretch, roll up your sleeves and werk a messy top-knot while you’re at it. You’ll look great, and be ready for whatever comes your way. And if anyone questions you, tell them it’s not lazy, it’s efficient.
You might feel an urge to add a bit of edge to your repertoire this month. Maybe it’s because people have been noticing (and commenting on) how “nice” you are. Or maybe it’s because life is pretty good for you right now, and you want a stylish way to shake things up. Well, shake away, dear Sagittarius, a little edge never hurt anybody, especially when it includes gorgeous metallic eye accents, bobby pin art, and a fierce slick-backed ‘do.
Capricorn! It’s your time to shine, or more precisely, to glitter. You may have had some strange moments over the past few weeks, but now it’s time to wash your hands of it all, apply a coat of pretty, glittery nail polish and celebrate. You can move forward confidently knowing that you’ll be catching the light from now on—especially on your nails.
Your theme this month is movement. You’ll be hustling, and making connections morning, noon and night. Flexibility is key right now, which is why it might be good to have a plan for quickly transitioning your makeup look from power lunch to dinner date. The next few weeks will be a dizzy and delicate dance. Don’t miss a beat.
You might be feeling especially misunderstood these days, but that’s okay. Take this opportunity to explore looks that embrace your mysterious side, and have fun while doing it. For example, nothing says there’s more here than meets the eye than a glam glittery smoky eye shadow. No need to go soul searching, Pisces. You know what you’re working with. So go ahead and work it.
Maybe some great director from above is filling your life with movie magic or maybe it’s your natural star power shining through, but your life is likely to feel a bit like a Hollywood script these days. There’s no better time than now to step into your role as a leading lady with a timeless approach to your makeup that’s both subtle and doesn’t shy away from attention. Ready on set?
It seems like life is one big puzzle right now, and you’re going deep to figure it out. The answers you seek will come. In the meantime, relax your furrowed brows and give them a shape that fits the true mood lingering beneath your questions. You probably already have everything you need in your makeup bag. And now that we think about it, the same goes for the rest of your life, too!
By now you’ve come to expect the unexpected when it comes to your surges of creativity, and this month is no exception. The question at this point isn’t what you can do but what you can do next. Trust the process, let your artistic side run free and indulge in some wearable lip art while you’re at it. If you’re lucky, the person you surprise most just might be yourself.
This month is all about connection. Connection with yourself, others and the natural state of everything around you. While we love bold moves that make a statement as much as the next person, now is the time to take comfort in simplicity. Let your natural beauty do the talking with nude makeup looks. Your brilliance and energy will be self-evident.
The world needs your roar right now, Leo. Few have the power to inspire and lead by example like you do, so why not show off your inner lioness with a bold cat eye look and the attitude to match. People can see the value you bring, and you probably won’t need your claws this month, but it’s still fun to let everyone know you’ve got ‘em.
