Shopping for beauty and personal grooming products is kind of exhausting. There are so many options available that a quick scroll online has us needing a little lie down, or a wine (maybe both?). Where do you start? Well, how about letting the stars decide. Whether you’re looking for a gift, or a gift for yourself, let your zodiac sign guide you to your beauty product match. Here are the perfect beauty products according to your star sign.
Unashamed limelight lovers, the determined, self-assured and vibrant aries are definitely no wallflowers. They go big, bold and statement making, from red lips to coloured eyes and heady fragrances that other signs find hard to wear. On the scent front, “warm” accords like Amber and musk and smoky tones are great choices as is honeysuckle – Aries’ zodiac flower.
The beauty aisle is Taurean’s spiritual home - they love aesthetics and place self-care right at the top of the list - there’s no such thing as overindulgence for a Taurean. They love the finer things in life – and are also happy to pay for it, though they expect craftsmanship, high quality and beautiful design in the products they choose, especially if something that other people will see. The bottle counts almost as much as what’s in it for Taureans, who are also big on scent (sexy, smoldering smells are always a hit).
Try: Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy No.6 Boxed EDP, $65; Al.ive Body Green Pepper & Lotus Hand Wash and Lotus Duo, $79; Blossom Taurus Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Taurus EDT Spray, $34.95; Urban Apothecary Oriental Noir Large Boxed Candle, $75
Known for being the life of the party, witty, spirited and lively, this air sign is also fly-by-the-seat of their pants and partial to whimsy. They love a bit of flair in their beauty choices and often go their own way, not afraid to shy away from quirkier items or bolder choices. While lavender is Gemini’s flower, their airy nature also lends itself to lighter, crisper scent choices or unexpected accords like vetiver.
Try: Blossom Gemini Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95 Demeter Fragrance Library Gemini EDT Spray, $34.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Sunshine Cologne Spray, $32.95; Kleins Perfumery Fig Leaves Perfume Oil, $49
The mother sign of the zodiac, Cancerians are intuitive, warm and sensitive - they’re like a big hug. Notorious homebodies, no one loves a scented candle or beautiful home piece more than a cancer, and their ideal night is a long soak in a bath. Choose scents that remind them of home (musks and wood-based accords are a good choice) or products that promote the cosy, relaxing vibes at home.
Try: Blossom Cancer Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95 Demeter Fragrance Library Cancer EDT Spray, $34.95; Lula Self-warming eye masks in Jasmine, $29.95; This is Incense Tasmania Incense, $39; Lollia Relax Bubble Bath, $75
Leo’s are big energy people: bold, passionate, outgoing, they love the spotlight and the spotlight loves them. Red is their colour (all the heat/ warmth shades work here), but they’re always drawn to that which makes a statement, whether it’s a unique eyeshadow look, or a heady fragrance. Following is not part of their vocabulary - they are leaders to the bone, and this applies to their beauty choices too.
Blossom Leo Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Leo EDT Spray, $34.95; Tokyo Milk Dark Everything and Nothing EDP, $85; Infinite She Bold, Bright, Bold Shea Butter Soap, $17.95; Infinite She Fearless Hydrating Body Lotion, $44.95; Blossom Blushing Rose Volumising Coloured Mascara, $13.95
Virgos are great lovers of art and design with homes that look straight from the pages of a glossy home mag (or at least, that’s what they aspire to). Sophisticated and grounded, they’re also noted perfectionists and can get a little highly strung - relaxation doesn’t come naturally to them. This is exactly why products that help them relax, or sooth and calm the mind are perfect for the hardworking, earthy sign.
Try: Blossom Virgo Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss; $11.95 Demeter Fragrance Library Virgo EDT Spray, $34.95; Willelaine Aromatherapy Snooze Bath Salts Soak, $20; Wild Emery Sleep Shower Steamer, $8; Willelaine Aromatherapy Meditate Room &Linen Mist, $17
Balance and beauty are the two calling cards of Librans, so it’s no surprise that aesthetics are a big deal to them. They’re romantic and idealists so are drawn to classic scents like rose (which is also their zodiac flower), but are also always looking for harmony in their homes, so products that can help with zen in the home will always be welcome with a Libra.
Blossom Libra Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Libra EDT Spray, $34.95; Kleins Perfumery Rosewater Perfume Oil, $49; Archive Poet at Heart Hand Cream, $39.95; This is Incense Noosa Incense, $39; Al.ive Body Australia Applewood + Goji Berry Wash and Lotion Duo, $79
Magnetic, emotional and passionate, Scorpio’s are sensual creatures that feel deeply. They’re both magnetic and emotional, but you definitely don’t want to do them wrong - there is a sting in that tail that will cut you off for life. Smouldering and sexy notes like musk and leather work well for this star sign as well as unusual or unexpected mixes will linger long after you leave the room – and the same applies for home scent too.
Blossom Scorpio Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Scorpio EDT Spray, $34.95; Tokyo Milk Dark Arsenic No 17 EDP, $85; Urban Apothecary Black Viper Special Edition Candle, $80; Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy Hand Cream, $39.95
Show us the life of the party and we’ll show you a sagittarius. Exuberant, freedom-and-life-loving they’re renowned for being funny, honest and always the most charming people in the room. Travel is part of their DNA and they’ve always got their next trip planned so items that pack into a suitcase, or remind them of their favourite destination will always be a hit.
Blossom Sagittarius Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Sagittarius EDT Spray, $34.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Cuba Soy Wax Travel Candle, $34.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Morocco Soy Wax Travel Candle, $34.95
Capricorn’s are synonymous with a lot of “boring” traits (practical, pragmatic, responsible), but they also have classic taste, an appreciation for excellent quality and craftsmanship, and a pared back but chic aesthetic unlike any other. The earth sign resonates with grounded “nature” scents – think: moss or woods – and they’re also drawn to high-quality ingredients and well-designed centrepiece-style beauty, as well as practical-yet-effective routines. They’re also one of the hardest working signs of the zodiac so anything that helps them unwind will be appreciated (even if they’re resistant to it at first!)
Blossom Capricorn Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Capricorn EDT Spray, $34.95; Al.ive Body Australia Green Pepper and Lotus Hand Wash and Lotion Duo, $79; Wild Emery Focus Shower Steamer, $8; Urban Apothecary Smoked Leather Reed Diffuser, $80
Aquarians live and breathe originality – if it’s been seen before, or it’s already a trend they don’t want a part of it. Independent, friendly and altruistic, their flower is the orchid which is not surprising given how notoriously as beautiful as it is unique. They love to make a statement and they love the unexpected so a fragrance that captures that is perfect.
Blossom Aquarius Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Aquarius EDT Spray, $34.95;Blossom Vanilla Orchid Roll on Perfume Oil, $15.95; The Perfume Oil Company Fresh Perfume Oil Gift Set, $69.95; Smelly Balls Serene Reusable Car Freshener, $19.95
Sensitive, intuitive, and forever dreaming, pisceans basically invented self care. They love wellness as well as anything that gives them the opportunity for some indulgence introspection (baths, meditation, yoga). They also love to be creatively inspired so beautiful, artistic pieces will resonate with a piscean, as well as anything with a dreamy element to it.
Blossom Pisces Zodiac Roll-On Lipgloss, $11.95; Demeter Fragrance Library Pisces EDT Spray, $34.95; Lollia Dream Whipped Body Butter, $65; Lula Self-Warming Eye Masks, $29.95; The Cottage Greenhouse Kaolin Dry Clay Face Mask, $24.95; Willelaine Aromatherapy Bath Soak Salts Snooze, $20
