(March 21 to April 19)

Whether it's growing out those brows (yes, it's a pain, we know) or perfecting your waterline stroke, take some this month to focus on the eyes. Cliches aside, your eyes give you an instant connection to others. Dazzling folks with your pretty peepers will definitely work in your favor. *wink, wink*


(April 20 to May 20)

Have you always had an iffy relationship with your hair? Whether you've been trying to lift it out of its flatness or tame its unruliness with heat styling, it's time to hit the pause button. Let those curls run free, that stick straight mane go slick, and let those extensions go. Be yourself and let your hair breathe.


(May 21 to June 20)

Geminis are notorious for flip-flopping on decisions, even when it comes to beauty. Well, the buck stops here this month because you're actually going to follow through on that one beauty commitment you've been too scared to make. Lop six inches off your hair, get those lashes perma-curled, wear red lipstick. Whatever it is, do it already!



(June 21 to July 22)

You have enough beauty know-how in that pretty brain of yours for the world. All that info is too good not to share. This month, give a willing friend a feel good beauty makeover, donate your makeup skills to someone you know who's going on an important interview, or put up a beauty blog. Share the knowledge.

(July 23 to August 22)

Remember when you didn’t take looks and beauty super seriously? When you could just goof around with your mom's makeup (behind her back) or play around with nail art just because? Take a day off that no-makeup makeup look and try something just for fun. Hair chalk, some neon nail polish, or a temporary tattoo. Life's too short to play it safe.


(August 23 to September 22)

You are in desperate need of downtime with the girls. Make a day of it by booking yourselves some exclusive pamper time. Whether it's doing a makeup trade (get new stash without spending!) with each other, going for a mani-pedi sesh at a nail salon, or dolling yourselves up just because, beauty is twice, thrice, four times as fun with friends.



(September 23 to October 22)

You've been in a beauty rut for way too long, and it's time to sever ties with that powder that no longer complements your skin tone, that shampoo that smells like bubble gum, and that grimy pot of lip balm that looks like it could give you an infection. Boost your beauty buzz with some fresh energy. Change things up.


(October 23 to November 21)

Looking your best isn't always pain-free—sometimes, you've got to traverse a pretty rough road to get clear skin or perfectly aligned teeth. Time to finally chuck it up, Scorpio. Pull out the big guns when it comes to perseverance with beauty, whether that means finally going to the dermatologist or making an appointment with your ortho.


(November 22 to December 21)

Consider yourself clueless about beauty? You're in luck because at the literal touch of your fingers lies an entire world of inspiration. You don't have to start from scratch. Find someone whose haircut, whose lip color, whose makeup inspires you and experiment with that. Find it not working? Swipe right to discover your next beauty source!



(December 22 to January 19)

Fighting your mom, older sister or nosy tita about what you can and can't put on your face? Stand your ground and get ready to defend your gothic black lipstick or the matte black nail polish they can't seem to get around to loving. Own your uniqueness, be willing to compromise with rules within reason), and exercise self-expression wisely.


(January 20 to February 18)

You've got a beauty benefactor hiding behind the curtains somewhere, lucky Aquarius. If you're perennially adding items to your shopping cart, it might help to look around you and ask if someone's willing to share the expense or *fingers crossed* buy you something. Your fairy godmother's waiting to be discovered.


(February 19 to March 20)

What time have you been hitting the sack, Pisces? Your body is begging you for more hours of sleep—and not just light, easily interrupted shut-eye, but true blue Rip Van Winkle rest. The repair your body does to heal itself while you’re asleep will do more for your beauty than any over the counter elixir. Make your Zzzs your top priority.
