Virgo: August 23 - September 22 

The efficient and practical Virgo is after one thing. Simplicity. 

When it comes to simple skincare, they like to keep their routine cleanIf a product isn’t vegan, cruelty free and exempt of problematic chemicals and toxins, it just isn’t making the cut. With a less-is-more approach to almost everything in life, a Virgo’s skincare regime is made up only of the essentials too. A cleanser, a moisturiser and a hydrating serum (hello GLOSSYBOX Skincare bestsellers kit!) is all they could ever want. 

Their minimalist approach also continues into their makeup. Ask a Virgo what they makeup motto is and it’s sure to be along the lines of ‘a perfectly matched foundation, a little blush and a layer of lash-lengthening mascara’. A multi-tasking product is also a firm favourite, allowing them to feel fresh-faced and polished in as few steps as possible. 

Virgo’s willing to add a slight touch of colour though, a neutral colour palette of peach, pink and olive greens are their go-to. As, to them, earthy tones are exactly what they need to feel calm and relaxed.

Libra: September 23 - October 22 

Ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, Libra’s are fond of the beautiful. Their inspiration for beauty comes from the – often luxurious and expensive - things around them, which are always enriched by music, art and the many beautiful places they visit. 

Their love of the elegant is displayed through this sign’s sought-after colour palette. Made up of Champagne pink, lilac and light grey, every shade in their bag of beauty tricks sits harmoniously with one another. Not only does this colour palette work for their face – a soft blush, a subtle golden eye – it's also a common choice for a Libra’s nails too. 

Complementing their nails to their love of luxury means a Libra would never be without their salon-styled talons. Long, almond shaped tips are sure to be painted in a glossy coat of simmering pink.

Scorpio: October 23 - November 21 

Scorpio-born girls are passionate and decisive – and have absolutely no interest in fad trends and styles. Instead, this hard working, ambitious and intuitive sign has figured out what works for them and they’re sticking to it.  

magnetic water sign, a Scorpio is known for easily morphing their makeup from a sweet, soft daytime style to a more dramatic 'night' look. They’ll start their day with a flawless base and a quick slick of mascara, and then love turning things up a notch with a bold smoky eye or deep wine-coloured lip for their evening plans. 

Dark colours such as emerald green and plum purple are adored by this sign, as a Scorpio sees these shades a way to display their strong, determined personality.

Sagittarius: November 22 - December 21 

Sagittarius is the philosophical defender of the galaxy who, armed with a bow and arrow, is a keen traveller, who’s curious about the wider world and what it has to offer. This sign’s greatest treasure is their time and freedom – and as a result they don’t want to spend too long getting ready in the morning. 

This means only the most essential, multi-functional products make it to a Sagittarius’ make up bag; a lip and cheek stick, a lip balm that works wonders on brows too... 

Gravitating towards subdued colours, this sign’s colour palette is made up of blush pinks, warm browns and small shimmers of gold. However, whilst they normally lean to these colours as part of no-fuss looks, a Sag is always up for trying one bold feature, like false lashes or a bold lip. 

But in a makeup bag isn’t where their products stop – despite only using the basics, their makeup and skincare stash is stored all over. An adventurous Sagittarius needs to have everything they adore on display - so a bathroom or makeup shelf with all their gorgeous beauty products on show is their way of showcasing all they love. 

Oh, and as a sign that’s happy being out of their comfort zone and is always wanting to learn more, a Sag will sit and master her makeup skills from YouTube and Insta tutorials.

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19 

With a timeless sense of style, Capricorns are big on relaxed, comfortable looks. Their style is not trend driven; they know what they like and it needs to be practical, economical and reliable. Despite this, Capricorn-born individuals do still lust after important details that they admire. This hard-working sign values great craftsmanship therefore opts for products that have been carefully created, following plenty of research – think GLOSSYBOX Skincare! 

With a love of earthy tones and textures, not only do Capricorns opt for the likes of browns and khaki greens as a colour palette, but they also turn to the planet for their materials. Another reason GLOSSYBOX Skincare – with its Purifying Charcoal Cleanser and Exfoliating Clay Scrub – is so perfect for this sign! 

A Capricorn also knows that all things natural work for their haircare too. Loose yet still luscious waves often frame this sign’s face, and are only require taming with a nourishing conditioning treatment and a wavy texture spray from time to time.

Aquarius: January 20 - February 18 

Thanks to ruling planet Uranus, Aquarius-born have a visionary quality. Capable of perceiving the future and knowing exactly what they both now and in the near future. And this means those with this sign are sure to choose products that’ll work for all looks over a lengthy period of time.  

Ensuring their skin is set for the future means skincare is their main focus, with anti-ageing a close second. Creams, gels and other watery formulations are a firm favourite for making sure the clock stays paused on a Capricorn’s youthful, glowing complexion. Water is also the inspiration behind this sign’s favourite skincare ingredients. For example, seaweed which, rich in protein, vitamins and antioxidants, helps replenish the skin's natural hydration. 

When it comes to makeup, as the water–bearer, an Aquarius loves the vibrant hues of the ocean tooblues, greens, violet and indigo. And they love a cream or gloss product that’s as hydrating as the sea itself!

Pisces: February 19 - March 20 

As an artistic sign with a fine aesthetic eye, a Pisces’ beauty ideals are spiritual and whimsical. Muted and earthy shades as well as pastel pink, peach and lilac tones are preferred, whilst bold and garish colours are avoided at all costs. 

Lusting after fairy tale features, a Pisces favours soft structure when it comes to highlighting and sculpting their features. A subtle contour to define their cheekbones is a skill this sign has mastered, while groomed, yet still slightly bushy, brows are a trademark they wear with pride. A clear brow gel is never too far from hand! 

A Pisces’ ritual of taming flyaway hairs extends further than just their brows though. A sleek hair style – whether that’s straight and slicked back or crafted into an effortless bun – is a textbook look in this sign’s barrel of tricks.

Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
