The New Makeup Products That Belong in Your Stash, According to Your Zodiac SignNovember 18, 2021
Calling astrology and makeup lovers alike! If you believe the stars offer powerful insight into your personality, then see what they can tell you about your makeup aesthetic, too. We put together makeup horoscopes for each sign featuring the limited-edition Maybelline New York Into the Zodiac Collection of liquid lipsticks and crayons, plus more. (There’s even a bonus horoscope to get you through Mercury in Retrograde. You're welcome.)
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You’re bold, ambitious, crave high stakes and don’t mind a little competition. Reflect your fire energy with a burnt orange lip shade like the Maybelline New York Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick in Hustle in Heels. Complement the highly-pigmented lip color with your pick of the 32 rebellious eye pigments found in the NYX Professional Makeup Money Heist 32 Pan Mask Color Palette created in honor of the Netflix hit.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taureans enjoy serene environments. Think: soothing aromas, soft sounds and anything nature-inspired. Translate that feeling onto your lips with a mauve shade like the Maybelline New York Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick in Stay Exceptional. Then illuminate your skin with the Valentino Beauty V-Lighter Face Base Primer and Highlighter so you can radiate that positivity.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis, symbolized by the celestial twins, have a curious nature and because of this, they love to do it all. A burgundy lip color like the Maybelline New York Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick in Make It Happen will keep the mystery alive. After you’ve finished the rest of your makeup, finish with the Dermablend Lock and Last Water-Resistant Setting Spray. The water-resistant mist locks in makeup for up to 24 hours so you’ll be ready for anything your day has in store.
Cancer (May 21 – June 20)
Highly intuitive and willing to do whatever it takes to protect itself emotionally is the best way to describe a Cancer's nature. Try a dusty rose lip color like Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Love to evoke warm, fuzzy feelings. Because eyes are the window to the soul, add a cat eye to your makeup look using the R.e.m. Beauty at the Borderline Eyeliner Marker to show your protective nature.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Passionate, loyal and here for the drama — that’s you, Leo. The orange-red shade of the Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Pioneer will capture your fiery spirit. You’ll want your eyebrows to be on point, too. For that, we love the L'Oréal Paris Unbelieva-brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel for thick brows that turn heads.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
This earth sign is a perfectionist at heart and will appreciate the perfection in a nude like the Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Seductress. Set the rest of your flawless beat with the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Setting Powder, which has blurring technology that leaves skin with a smooth, natural matte finish.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Balance and harmony are of the utmost importance to Libras. We love the raspberry hue of the Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Ruler for adding a pop of color to lips and the skin-like feel of the YSL Beauty Nu Bare Look Tint. This is our idea of a balanced beat.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Elusive, complex and one of the most dynamic signs of the zodiac, Scorpios drive an equally compelling makeup look. We suggest an eggplant color such as Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Believer and then add some allure to your eyes with the ColourPop Oh that Jazz Super Shock Shadow Kit.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarians have an adventurous spirit and often move forward in a direction with purpose, arrows blazing. Combine a wine lippie like the Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Founder with the supreme powers of the Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Liquid Foundation that now comes in a mini size so you can take it with you wherever your adventures lead you.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms. We think the Maybelline New York Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick in Lead the Way and the Victoria Beckham Beauty Lip Definer No. 5 express this to the fullest. Fill in lips with the pale nude lipstick crayon, then outline them with the darker shade of the lip liner for a ‘90s supermodel pout that you can still pair with your sweats.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
The "aqua" in Aquarius can be misleading because it's an air sign and not a water sign like some may mistake it for. It’s represented by the water bearer who brings water, or life, to the land. We feel a monochromatic look using clay colors like the
Maybelline New York Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick Into the Zodiac Collection in Aquarius Own Your Empire and Mented Blush in Clay Too Much will capture your ethereal vibe.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
As a natural empath, exude your sensitive side with a dark apricot lip shade like the Maybelline New York Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick Into the Zodiac Collection in Pisces Enjoy the View. Use the iridescent, peachy shades in the Urban Decay Naked Cyber Eyeshadow Palette to play off the lipstick. We recommend using the shadow brush wet to apply the colors onto your lids for an aquatic-like sheen.
When Mercury Is in Retrograde ...
We’ve all been there — Mercury is in retrograde and we’re not feeling like ourselves. During this time, we think stopping out of your comfort zone is a good thing. Try swiping on the Maybelline New York Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick Into the Zodiac Collection in Retrograde Thrill Seeker — nothing screams alter ego like a black lipstick.
Keep the rest of your makeup simple, but definitely define eyelashes with the Lancôme Lash Idole Mascara.
