Your ideal lip shade factors in a lot of elements – your complexion, how the pigment warms up or cools down with your undertone and of course, personal choices. But, if you have exhausted all of the above options, there is another way to find a shade for you; one that complements your celestial personality.
Fortunately, we happen to know a whole lot about Zodiac traits and here’s how you can find your ideal lipstick shade according to your sign!
1. Aries (March 21- April 19) – Chilly Red
Challenging situations are no match for a level-headed Aries; you lot thrive on being in a pickle! So, a striking chilly red lip will complement your bold personality. Fierce and fabulous, a bright red lip is the chicest accessory to wear on your many adventures.
2. Taurus (April 20- May 20)- Light Brown
The nature-loving, chilled-out Taurean has an interesting duality – you show an unparalleled level of determination and strength while being total sweethearts. Browns represent reliability and stability, so a soft light brown is an apt shade to represent your dual nature in the chicest way.
3. Gemini (May 21- June 21) – Apricot
Talking about dual natures, nobody can beat a Gemini! You are also one of the wittiest and liveliest people to hang around with. You are anything but boring – the life of the party – so your ideal lippie should match that vibe. A creamy apricot hue is perfect to keep your glam looking non-boring while being the social butterfly that you are!
4. Cancer (June 22- July 22) – Black
Nobody can deny the natural psychic abilities of a Cancerian – your intuitiveness in recognising energies is unmatched. You often surprise people with how you are so in tune with the universe – giving you an air of mystique. Why not celebrate the gift of insight with a bold black shade, we know you have already thought about doing it!
5. Leo (July 23- August 23) – Fuchsia
A Leo will never shy away from the spotlight! You love to be the talk of the town and a statement tint like fuchsia will surely get everybody talking. You are also quite charismatic, extroverted and fearless in the face of other people’s opinions about you. So, an unusual shade like this will be a walk in the park for you.
6. Virgo (August 23- September 23) – Baby Pink
You pride yourself on meticulous behaviour and work ethic, but have no clue that you are often one of the most adored people in your group. This is because you are just so easy to love. Even though you like to be practical, your go-to aesthetic is often uber-feminine and fairy-like. And what better way to represent that than a soft, baby pink shade!
7. Libra (September 23- October 23) – Nude
A Libran energy is also about harmony – you hate vagueness and are often striving to strike a balance in everything that you do. A nude lip is one of the most harmonious lippies out there – it does not clash with your natural complexion and makes for a pretty balanced makeup look. Easy-peasy!
8. Scorpio (October 24- November 21) – Maroon
None can match the emotional intelligence of a Scorpio, making them one of the strongest shoulders to cry on! The strength and resilience that you show in matters of love is the reason why an equally deep shade like maroon is your ideal type.
9. Sagittarius (November 22- December 21) – Dark Purple
Intellectual Saggi babies are often in the pursuit of things beyond the ordinary. They love the ambiguity of the world, thriving in spiritual ideas rather than practical ones. This is why a fantastical and mystical shade like dark purple is the perfect shade for your adventurous self.
10. Capricorn( December 22- January 19)- Coffee Brown
Self-reliant and hardworking, Capricorns are known for being on top of their game all the time. There is hardly anyone in your group who can match your energy, so an equally energetic shade like coffee brown makes a good match for you.
11. Aquarius (January 20- February 18) – Blue
It is time to talk about the fun, quirky, adventurous and creative Aquarians! There is nothing ordinary about the things that you like, so your ideal lip shade won’t be one either. A shimmery blue is the literal embodiment of your fluid personality, and it looks totally cool no matter how you apply it (mistakes are welcome!).
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)- Hot Pink
Pisceans are known to be empaths – emotionally intelligent beings who are in touch with their own emotions and others as well. Emotions of love often overwhelm you, but that doesn’t mean that you give up on it entirely. And given that the amount of love you give can stir emotions in anyone, a lovely shade like hot pink will be your ideal match.
