Written in the Stars.

Hello again Lovelies.
So! First things first. Did NASA change the star signs? Well, we can confidentially say; no. Thankfully we can all remain the same star signs without any more debate (except for us who are on the cusps of the dates... But we know what we really are). To make a long story short, there is indeed a thirteenth constellation. HOWEVER! Due to the 12 months of the year and for easy simple division the Babylonians decided to exclude Ophiuchus from the zodiac in 1000 BC.
It is amazing that we are still finding meaning in the same stars as those more than 3000 years ago!
So, whilst we’re all thinking about the star signs how about a journey into the colours and makeup ideas that we can take from the signs of our birth?
We will be looking at 8 different categories in your star sign;
- Your Birthstone: every star sign and month has a significant stone that is associated with your birth.
- Element: we’ll delve into if you’re water, fire, earth or air.
- Personality: though this one is very broad, we can see that people in these star signs have similar traits. These are just a few of them.
- Compatibility: as with personalities, star signs can clash, and so, here is an astrologer’s recommendation of the star signs you’ll get along most with.
- Colour: the stars can show which colours shine best on you, and which ones match your personality.
- Cosmetic Company: as a little bit of fun we wanted to match your star sign with the company we think can provide you with the cosmetics most suited for the sign you are in.
- Products: based on your colours and traits we have picked out the products we think can help you pull of the most sickening looks for your zodiac, specifically here are our callouts for the perfect zodiac eye palette colours.
- Celebrities: this one is just a little bit of fun trivia we thought you lovelies would enjoy. Also, if they have an Instagram we have linked them in, just click the link and follow your star sign celebrity.
