Everything—and we do mean *everything*—is written in the stars.
Obviously your astrological sign can say a lot about your day-to-day life (don't lie, you know you're addicted to reading your horoscope), but it's allllso pretty telling about your beauty habits. We chatted with astrologer Deb McBride to get the scoop—it's chillingly accurate.
Birthday: December 22 - January 19
"Capricorns use the most high-end products that exist, especially since many of them have sensitive skin," says astrologer Deb McBride. "They usually don't mind if they have to run up the credit card for their beauty items—anything to enhance their status. They get their facials done at the best spa in town. They wear the latest identifiable fragrance—usually a very earthy scent—and very expensive. Their routine is organized and practical with timing that's down to a science."
Birthday: January 20 - February 18
"Aquarians like to shock people with their color choices and their unique style, so they spend a little extra time primping to get a reaction when people see them," says McBride. "Aquarians will go out of their way to have products that no one else knows about. They will seek out the most cutting-edge beauty brand. Because of their humanitarian nature, the products they buy may also tend to have a give-back component. But of course, once their favorite brand becomes too popular and mainstream, they're not interested anymore. On to the next!"
Birthday: February 19 - March 20
"Pisces have an indescribable, otherworldly glamour reminiscent of Old Hollywood," says McBride. "They want a beautiful color to accentuate those plump and pouty lips. Pisces knows a good moisturizer will keep their complexion looking silky soft. And they will often have a gentle scrub containing dead sea salts and seaweed to achieve that Botticelli's Venus look."
Birthday: March 21 - April 19
Like fellow Aries Keira Knightley, you love to play up your standout features. "You can be sure Aries has a good blush to accentuate her sharp cheekbones, while her shadow and liner bring attention to her intense eyes," McBride notes. "She will pay particular detail to her eyebrows, which will always be freshly plucked or waxed." But don't think that means Aries is high-maintenance. "She's a lady with places to go and people to see, so she won't spend a lot of time in front of the mirror," says McBride.
Birthday: April 20 - May 20
"Taurus wants warm earthy colors to highlight their innate sensuality," says McBride. Like Jessica Alba, Taurus signs will gravitate to roses, pinks, beiges, and browns that are soothing to their nature. "As they are often unwilling to part with their cash, their cosmetics must offer a lot of bang for their buck. They are methodical about how they apply their beauty products, spending what seems like an eternity perfecting their morning beauty routine."
Birthday: May 21 - June 20
"Sparkly Gemini enjoys some glitter to accentuate her fine features," says McBride. "Never feeling they have enough time, they could be comfortable doing a quick makeover on the train to work. They come home at night looking like an entirely different person than the one who walked out the same front door in the morning. They may also have a variety of products they try on a regular basis—they are not necessarily brand loyal."
Birthday: June 21 - July 22
Like Selena Gomez, Cancerian females are all about accenting their features with light and shine. "They'll choose colors and textures that shimmer and will remind you of moonlight when you see her enchanting face," says McBride. "Her cosmetic choices aren't bold because she remains modest. She also won't spend money on extravagant products, but may use the tried and true her mom always had on hand. She will sit at her home vanity table and use gentle creams to nurture her dewy fresh-faced complexion."
Birthday: July 23 - August 22
Leos, like J.Lo, have one priority: hair. "Their hair must shine like the rays of the sun or the lion's mane," says McBride. "It is their crowning glory, so they need to have the best hair products, the best hairdresser at the top salon. And if they get a bad cut they are very unhappy, so watch out! Give them a great cut and they will feel like a new person. No matter if they wear a short pixie or a long silky mane, their hair carries a vibe of importance and seems to have an aura of its own."
Birthday: August 23 - September 22
As evidenced by her Body Book, Cameron Diaz is all about doing good things for the skin she lives in. And she's not alone. "Virgos need to know the brands they use are cruelty free, protect animal rights, and are all organic and not full of chemicals," says McBride. "They'll buy their make up and beauty products at their local health food store, if the brands available will meet their high standards. Otherwise they'll make them at home in their kitchen with honey, oatmeal and bentonite clay." But make sure you know how fierce you are, ladies. "For some reason, no matter how stunning they look going out the door to work, somehow it's never quite good enough for them."
Birthday: September 23 - October 22
For Libra ladies like Kim Kardashian, beauty is in the packaging. "Libra loves the most beautifully packaged products on the shelves." As for special collections? You're all about the seasonal scents. You're also *very* particular about getting ready. "Her side of the his-and-hers vanity has a quant velvet stool and her products are organized by color. She will take a fair amount of time dolling up for a romantic evening."
Birthday: October 23 - November 21
Emma Stone loves a dark lip—and for good reason. "Scorpio women are deeply and mysteriously seductive. They gravitate towards the autumnal colors of burgundies and maroons," says McBride. "This woman's perfume fills a room with an irresistible exotic enchantment. She feels her feminine power needs to shine and will choose cosmetics to enhance a dramatic look. Her choice of products will depend upon whom she needs to entice in her meetings with people that day."
Birthday: November 22 - December 21
"The routine for Sagittarius has to be quick and effortless to accommodate her on-the go lifestyle," says McBride. "A lip balm and a light moisturizer are essential to ward off dry skin and jet lag. All products must come in a travel size to be zipped into the carry-on bag for her next adventure. She's aware of her high forehead and so looks best in a windblown hairstyle evoking a wild motorcycle ride."
