    If you’re into horoscopes, you’ll know that your astrological sign can say a lot about your day to day life, but you what you probably don’t know is that your star sign can have a lot to do with your beauty too. Ask any astrologer whether your zodiac draws you towards particular colours and they’ll all tell you yes. It’s not just how the shades work on your skin, it’s also how they make you feel. 

    Whether you’re in the set of Fire stars (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), Air stars (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra), Earth stars (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) or Water stars (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio), there will be a supernatural pull towards particular styles of hair and colours of makeup. Find yours:
