The last month of summer is upon us and you’re probably trying to soak up as much sun and surf as possible while we still have warm weather. We want you to maximize your final weeks of sunny days, and look great doing it. We consulted with the stars and came up with your beauty horoscope for August! Enjoy!
Aries: This is a very busy and social month for you. There will be a lot of hustle and bustle and interaction, so keeping your makeup game on point is super important. Streamline your look and try a clean, chiseled face with a splash of color (on the lips, of course) so people know you mean business wherever you go.
Taurus: Practicality is the name of the game this month. Focus on taking care of those petty repairs and issues you’ve been meaning to address. You can be practical with your look too, and stick to soft neutrals and earth tones. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you have to be boring about it! Try a soft brown smoky eye that is anything but simple.
Gemini: This is a very colorful and social time for you, with a lot of great connections heading your way. Have some fun with this outgoing, chatty period and make sure you look unforgettable. Go big with your makeup and try an exaggerated eye or lip. Channel that social butterfly in you!
Cancer: This month, improving your status quo — at home, at work, in regards to your health and/or emotional state, in your personal life, etc — takes priority. You’re literally looking for ways to step up your game in every aspect of life, so why should your beauty routine be ignored? Add a little sparkle or pizazz to your current look with some fun metallic makeup. As if you need another excuse to get your sparkle on!
Leo: In typical Leo fashion, you’ll be feeling pretty powerful this month and thinking a lot about what the future holds for you. It’s a great time to be a little selfish and do things that make you feel good: indulge in a spa sesh, splurge on that fancy watch you’ve been eyeing or take a day off to hang by the pool with a drink in hand. This empowered new you needs a look to match so try a bold statement lip or eye.
Virgo: Stress from your personal or professional life could be taking its toll on you this month, making you a little more introspective and thoughtful than usual. This is a great time to lean on the people around you. Take advantage of those girlfriends of yours and take in a girls’ night here and there to keep yourself from getting too tense. Try a sultry makeup look when you go out and engage your inner vixen and leave those worries at the door. You got this.
Libra: This is a great month to get involved in a community event, cause or activity that you’ve been putting off for a while. Don’t be afraid to try something new and make some new friends. Just show everyone that sunny disposition and lovely face and you’ll be sure to be a hit. Also, a little pastel makeup won’t hurt your social game either. Try a pretty light blue shadow or gloss (or both!).
Scorpio: While you’re not one to stay all buttoned up, this month presents a little change in your normal demeanor. Your serious side will be out more and you’ll be much more aware of the impressions you’re making on others. While toning it down is all well and good, don’t be afraid to be a bit brazen, especially with your look. Try a smoldering smoky eye and nude lip to show people you know how to let loose!
Sagittarius: Some change and fresh new opportunities are on the horizon. Instead of running or hesitating, we say jump right in and embrace the possibilities. Let your fresh, bright future influence your look with vibrant, dewy skin and pops of coral on your cheeks and lips. Let people see the good vibrations all around you (and on your face!).
Capricorn: Looks like the signs are pointing to a time of transition for ya, so staying flexible and open-minded is really important right now. Try to keep a good balance of personal and professional time so you’re not getting bogged down with stress and change around you. Don’t be afraid to get a bit daring and rock a sleek and sultry look to take that edge off! Remember, a hot smoky eye is the cure to all troubles. You heard it here first.
Aquarius: Relationships are a huge focus for you this month and you’ll probably find yourself with amidst a ton of interaction and socializing in the last month of summer. Indulge in this collaborative time and utilize it to show off your sophisticated and sassy beauty style. Take a page from the confident and effortless Parisians and try a Moulin Rouge-esque jeweled eye and nude pout. If you’re going to be a social butterfly, you have to look the part!
Pisces: You are all about getting organized and adding some structure to your life. Your “to- do” list is going to be ever-growing as you find yourself tightening up operations in everything from your finances to your diet. Being regimented and disciplined in life can be a good thing, but make sure you don’t go overboard. Try to live a little, especially with your beauty routine. Make a point to think outside of the box and try an outrageous new trend like black or blue lipstick. You won’t regret it.
