We all understand what it's like to hoard all the beauty stuff, Gemini, but this month calls you to STOP the shopaholic tendencies and strip your arsenal down to the basics. Make sure you have the basics well stocked (mascara, foundation, lippie, blush) and let go of the rest that you're not using anyway.

All the makeup in the world doesn't matter when you have skin that's glowy, fresh, and clean. Go beneath the surface this month and invest your beauty time in the kind of care that matters. Slap on a face mask before going to bed, moisturize like it's no one's business and you'll see a huge difference before you know it.

Your pretty little mug is begging to be the center of the spotlight this month, Leo. How to make an impact? Scour your fave brands for trends that are blazing this season. Get on the YouTube train and find the gurus who can teach you top techniques. There's an artistry to makeup that you can definitely master if you try.

Your tips and toes are looking for a lot of love this month, Virgo! Treat yourself to a spa day at home—whether it's doing DIY mani pedis with your best friends or getting your mom in on the pampering. If you've been doing the polish thing too often, let your nails and cuticles breathe. If you can't do without a coat or two, stick to clean, fresh neutrals.

We know you've been putting off for a while now, but it's finally time to break the news to you—it's time to march yourself to your favorite stylist and get the cut you've been obsessing over since forever. Your hair's not going to transform itself, so you might as well help yourself on and go for gold.
(October 23 to November 21)
This month's challenge is to focus on one (just one!) beauty trick until you get it absolutely perfect. Want to learn how to get those Audrey Hepburn brows? Practice, practice, practice. Aiming to master cat eyes while riding in the passenger seat of a car stuck in EDSA traffic? You can do it.
(November 22 to December 21)
If you've been on the fence about changing up your look, now's not a good time to make rash decisions. Dabble instead in easy fixes that you can experiment with without scary consequences—epilating instead of waxing, temporary tattoos instead of permanent ink, a good brow pencil instead of micro-blading. Go easy on yourself.
(December 22 to January 19)
You do love your comfort zone, Capricorn, which is why it isn't easy for you to break away from old habits that you know aren't doing you any favors. If your regular stylist keeps doing your curls wrong, go to someone new. If that powder you used to love two years ago now makes you look like a zombie, switch things up. Change is good!
(January 20 to February 18)
Have you been smuggling makeup out of your mom's vanity? Is your sister beginning to wonder where all her polishes are going? It's time to build your own beauty toolkit, girl. Own your beauty routine and build a collection that you can call your own. Remember it doesn't have to be a one time big time affair—smart small and add consistently.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
