The Best Makeup Shades for You Based on Your Zodiac Sign
What’s your sign?
No, but seriously, zodiac signs and charts are on everyone’s minds these days. Our charts tend to explain a lot about who we are… hence the worldwide obsession with them.
Some of us feel a deep connection with our zodiac signs. And we like to make sure everyone knows it. So, what better way to show off our signs than with our makeup?
There are some colors — called “power colors” — that directly relate to each sign. Some shades depend on whether you’re an earth, water, fire, or air sign.
If you’re totally overwhelmed, don’t freak. We created a little guide on how to match your makeup with your zodiac sign, so you know exactly what shades to wear.
Aries makeup colors (March 21st — April 19th)
Aries is a fire sign, so think warm colors.
Red, orange, and yellow are all colors that empower you — their warmth directly relates to your fiery personality. Try our Lady Liberty Eyeshadow Palette for some stunning warm shades that’ll match your vibe.
Since Aries is also closely related to Mars, your power color is red. Vibrant and stunning, red can help you connect with your body and mind in a way other warm shades don’t.
Wearing red makeup, like the Eye Crayon in "Burgundy" or the Moisturizing Lipstick in "Everyday is Christmas," (carmine) makes you feel like your most exciting self.
Taurus makeup colors (April 20th — May 20th)
One of the oldest constellations in the night sky, Taurus is a deep-rooted earth sign.
All things green and blue are perfect for you. These hues make you feel grounded and more connected to nature and the Earth around you. Our Eye Crayon in “Electric Blue” and “Greenwich V” are sure to bring out your natural beauty and incredible personality.
As an earth sign, it’s no wonder your power color is green. Green shades represent nature itself, making Tauruses feel refreshed and empowered. Use the “Peppermint Confetti” and “Jungle” shades in the Concrete Jungle Eyeshadow Palette or our Matte Lipstick in “Jungle” (leaf green) for a boost of energy and confidence.
Gemini makeup colors (May 21st — June 21st)
These bubbly air signs are known for their love of yellow.
However, Geminis also connect with bright greens and blues. Bright hues are usually their go-to, as their personalities are super vibrant, too. The “Greenwich V” and “Electric Blue” Eye Crayons are incredibly bright shades you’ll love.
Your power color is definitely yellow. Cheerful and sunny, yellow matches the dazzling personality of the Gemini perfectly. Be sure to use “Lemonade” and “Pretzel” from our Concrete Jungle Eyeshadow Palette to really bring out your radiance.
Cancer makeup colors (June 22nd — July 22nd)
Cancers (water signs) are ruled by the moon.
Blues, whites, and grays are all colors associated with the moon and the ocean. Cancers tend to resonate with these shades over others because they bring out the best side of your sign — sensitivity and understanding of others. To channel the ocean waves, use our Matte Lipstick in “Violet” (electric indigo).
Because your power colors are white and silver, use our Eye Crayon in “Pearl St.” and “Silver” to connect with your sensitive side.
Leo makeup colors (July 23rd — August 22nd)
Leos are known for their fire. Which makes sense, considering they’re a fire sign.
You have an insanely strong connection to the sun. Meaning any warm colors — red, orange, yellow, purple — are made to be worn by you. The Uptown Downtown Eyeshadow Palette is full of warm, glowing shades that’ll brighten your eyes and deepen your connection to the sun. Or grab our Moisturizing Lipstick in “Orange Juice” (bright orange) or our Metallic Liquid Lipstick in “Wild” (bold purple) for a more intense pop of color.
Leo’s power color is gold because it makes you feel like royalty. Shimmery and fierce, our Eye Crayon in Gold is every Leo’s dream.
Virgo makeup colors (August 23rd — September 22nd)
These earth signs are typically described as grounded and spirited.
The colors that really bring out the best in Virgos are green, brown, and muted yellows or oranges. These shades promote stability and help you with inner growth.
For a stand-out earth vibe, grab our Metallic Liquid Lipstick in “Copper” (burnt orange) — this shade not only connects you to the nature around you, but it also makes you look totally amazing.
With green and brown as your power colors, The Concrete Jungle Eyeshadow Palette is perfect for Virgos. Made up entirely of gorgeous earthy hues, these shades help you connect with your innermost self.
Libra makeup colors (September 23rd — October 22nd)
Libras (air signs) are all about balance and harmony.
Libras are best paired with pastel blue, pink, purple, and green. These easy-breezy shades highlight your light and airy personality and draw others to you. Grab our Cream Blush in “Fairy” for a hint of soft pink to bring out your loving, caring side.
As a Libra, your power colors are pink and blue. These shades are calming and comfortable, both for you and those around you. Use the shade “Liberty” (an airy blue) from our Lady Liberty Eyeshadow Palette with the Matte Liquid Lip in “Elizabeth” (taffy pink) for a friendly, charming vibe others can’t resist.
Scorpio makeup colors (October 23rd — November 21st)
If you’ve ever met one of these water signs, you know how unforgettable they are.
Mysterious and powerful, Scorpios are drawn to deep shades like maroon, black, plum purple, and navy. Deep lipstick shades, like our “Empire” (plum purple) and “Wine,” (burgundy berry) lipstick shades can increase your own sense of mystery, while also giving you a mystical aura that others can feel.
If you feel extra adventurous, try our Metallic Liquid Lip in “Gunmetal” (silvery graphite). Black, your power color, helps deepen and intensify your inner and outer power — while making you feel like a total badass.
Sagittarius makeup colors (November 22nd — December 21st)
Passionate and bold, these fire signs are all about the spotlight.
You love being the center of attention, and you also have an amazing heart. Deep blue (such as our Matte Lipstick in “Violet”) and purple help to show off your intelligence and power.
Purple is your power color, so Metallic Liquid Lipsticks in “Wild” (bold purple) and “Dream” (mauve) not only bring out your creative side, but they also connect you with your wisdom and open-mindedness.
Capricorn makeup colors (December 22nd — January 19th)
Like all earth signs, Capricorns connect with natural earth tones.
Brown, gray, white, black, and khaki speak to you in ways other colors don’t. They’re predictable and simple, just how you like it.
To fuel your brown power color, use the BKB Eyeshadow Palette or our Liquid Eye Shadow. Full of pretty neutrals, these subtle shades are perfect for bringing out your inner strength.
Aquarius makeup colors (January 20th — February 18th)
Restless and always looking for adventure, this air sign is known for standing out in a crowd.
Aquariuses are drawn towards deep blues, turquoise, white, and bright gold. These colors ground you, while also giving you power and strength. Wear our Jelly Highlighter or Eye Crayon in Gold for a glow that gives you a boost of energy.
Your power color is blue because it helps to calm and soothe your restless energy. Wear bright blue (like the shade “Liberty” in the Lady Liberty Eyeshadow Palette) whenever you can to channel your calm, creative side.
Pisces makeup colors (February 19th — March 20th)
Pisces, the final astrological sign, have a strong connection to the ocean.
And yes — it’s a water sign.
Colors like blueish gray and pale green (like the “Peppermint Confetti” in the Concrete Jungle Eyeshadow Palette) are really where you shine. Pisces are known to heal, help, and inspire those around them, and these shades really bring out that side of you.
Our Eye Crayon in “Greenwich V” is the perfect shade to symbolize the life, luck, and growth that surrounds you.
Our zodiac signs mean something different to all of us. But, for almost everyone, it’s a way we can connect with our innermost selves.
Wearing our power colors helps us highlight our favorite pieces of our personalities. Plus, these colors make us feel like our best, most confident selves!
On a larger scale, our power colors can also promote balance throughout us and our lives — how crazy is that?
By wearing these colors daily, you can really connect with yourself and the world around you in a new way. And what better way to show off these shades than with your makeup?
So go out there and rock the hell out of your own “power color” look.
