Stargazing types have relied on some form of astrology to guide their actions since, well, who knows? Probably as long as there have been stars, and humans to look at them. But it's safe to say that astrology is having a moment of particular popularity, with more and more products catering to specific zodiac signs — jewelry, clothes, home decor. So of course makeup, skin care, fragrance, and everything else you spend all your money on at Sephora are getting in on the action. Luckily, there are astrology-themed beauty products for every sign.
It makes perfect sense when you think about it. People consult their horoscopes for guidance on everything from romance to work to travel, and the traits that come with your sign are supposed to dictate pretty much your entire life: What kind of parent you'll be, what you need in a partner, even the method of childbirth you should choose and what kind of tantrums your toddler will throw (well, that last one is based on your toddler's zodiac sign, but you get the idea). Naturally, this celestial mindset would extend to the beauty products that work, look, and even smell exactly right for your sign.
Whether you're a fiery Aries, a watery Cancer, an earthbound Taurus or an airy Aquarius, you'll find something on this list that's perfect for you.
If you're a fan of Bite's award-winning Amuse Bouche Lipstick, you'll be thrilled to hear that the company is mixing up a limited edition shade of Amuse Bouche for each sign (and releasing them monthly).
