Cancer: Watercolour eyeshadow
As a water sign, Cancers will definitely love the watercolor eye shadow trend. Long gone are the days where you redo your eyeshadow countless times just because the colors don’t match and your strokes don’t blend — it is all about having fun with the colors and having those pops of hues strewn on haphazardly onto your eyelids.

Virgo: Blurred Lips
Virgos are known to be perfectionists, so why not challenge yourself to take on the blurred lip effect that takes a little finessing? Apply the glossy wand onto the center of your lip and slowly work your way in with your fingers as you blend it outwards, creating that blurred finish. You can also add on a little extra gloss to make your lips extra kissable as well! This takes a lot of perseverance and willpower to power through, as it is a look that requires the extra effort — perfect for Virgos!
Libra: Mismatched Eye Shadow
As adventurous as Libras are, this new mismatched eyeshadow trend packs a punch for your overall look. Essentially, applying different tones, hues or completely contrasting colors on each eyelid is the look that you want to achieve. This trend is suitable for the bold and the daring, perfect for Libras who are bored of their usual makeup style. This gives you a fun yet classy vibe and is definitely a head-turner for all the guys (or girls)!

A hairstyle that requires little to no upkeep, Scorpios are definitely going to rock this look!

With extremely versatile lips, you can dress it up or down for any given occasion!
Aquarius: Bling Bling Nails
This all-over bling nail trend is perfect for the free-spirited Aquariuses who just want it their way. Fill your nails with sparkles, crystals, and gems, and get ready to show off your claws!

A level up from the standard cat eye, this trend allows them to connect with their inner desires and do it up however they like. A tip is to use a liquid eyeliner that glides easily on your skin, allowing you to own the look.
