Power color: Red
Create a bold look that captures the deep reds and bright hues of your sign’s planet with the Paprika Matte and Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette. Begin by applying Mustard Yellow all over your lid as your base color. Top it off with Pink Orange halfway up your lid and blend upwards and outwards until all edges are softened. Make sure to blend where the two shades meet to create a flawless gradient effect. Finally, lightly dab a shimmery shade like Gold on just the center of your lids to highlight them. Finish off with a vibrant, red lip using the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink City Edition Liquid Lipstick in the shade Dancer.
TAURUS AND PISCES
Power color: Green
Seek inspiration in the greenness of nature with the Pink Sugar Eye Candy Eyeshadow Palette in Eye Candy 1. First apply a neutral shade, either matte or shimmery, on the inner half of your lid, and the palette’s teal green shadow on the outer half. Blend where the two shades meet, then blend any other harsh edges away. For your hair, mimic natural, beach waves even while in the heart of the city by tying your hair up in a bun and generously spritzing the Hello Gorgeous Sea Salt Spray all over. Work the product in and remove the bun after a few hours, or overnight, and hand comb to add extra volume.
Power color: White
As a Cancer, receptive and soft colors like white and cream are for you. Invoke the glow of the moon through your skin with Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop. Infused with pure vitamin C, it rejuvenates skin to leave it healthy and glowing. Seal in all that goodness and nourish your skin even more with the Leiania House of Beauty Tamanu Oil that can also treat acne, fade acne scars, and prevent aging. Lastly, give your lips a crystal-clear shine with the Glossier Lip Gloss that will also soften them without that sticky sensation.
Power color: Gold
When we think of the color gold, words like ‘luxurious’ and ‘extravagant’ instantly come to mind. While we can’t look both luxurious and extravagant all the time, you can definitely feel like it by cleansing your face daily with the Face Republic Gold Mineral Cleanser. It exfoliates skin gently while deep cleaning, and has gold-derived minerals to brighten and even out your complexion. Compliment the cleanser by slipping on the Sexylook Hydrating Gold Mask which hydrates skin and helps calm redness. For a little bit of glow wherever you go, top off your makeup by lightly sweeping the Detail Makeover Baked Highlighter in Caramel Glaze over the tops of your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and on your cupid’s bow.
AQUARIUS AND LIBRA
Power color: Blue
The color of the sky above us and the oceans around us, blue has long been seen as one of the colors representing life for centuries. For a fun but not overdone pop of color, apply the teal blue shade of the Pink Sugar Eye Candy Eyeshadow Palette in Eye Candy 1 all over your lids, and extend it up until your waterline.
VIRGO AND CAPRICORN
Power color: Brown
Getting to work with neutral colors always pleases both makeup pros and newbies alike. Brown and its different shades are versatile and perfect for either casual and glammed up looks. Whether you’re heading to the office or out for some drinks and dancing, reach for the Pink Sugar Eye Candy Eyeshadow Quad in the Café Latte variant first. Sweep the second shade all over your lids as your base, and define your eyes by running the fourth shade along the crease and the outer corners with a small, defined shadow brush. Use a medium-sized, fluffy shadow brush to blend out harsh edges. Add some glitz by dabbing the third shade on just the center of your lids and blend out lightly. Throw back to the 90s and pair your eyes with delectable, chocolate lips using the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Limbo.
Power color: Black
Fashion mavens all over agree that nothing else looks quite as chic and sophisticated as an all-black outfit. It goes with everything after all. Try a more unconventional but still workable look and pair your neutral shadow with Maybelline Color Sensation The Loaded Bolds lipstick in Pitch Black. Then, get your eyes dangerously defined by lining them with the Clio Waterproof Pen Liner in Kill Black. Start with a thinner line in the inner corner of your eye, thickening it as you go outwards. Lastly, extend it into a precise, sharp wing. For some extra va-va-voom, curl your lashes and apply a coat or two of the W7 Absolute Lashes Mascara that give an immediate boost of volume and length.
Power color: Purple
The unmistakable color of royalty and power, it’s universally flattering no matter your skin tone. Make it the focal point of your overall look by choosing a head turning lipstick like the Pink Sugar Sugartint Lip & Cheek Tint in Posh Purple. It’s long-lasting and pigmented, and will settle into a soft, matte finish.
Power color: Yellow
Sunny and fun yellow should be your go-to color of choice whenever possible. If you’re in the mood to pull an all-nighter out this weekend, sweep the yellow color of the Paprika Matte and Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette (P1,695) all over your lids. Feel free to keep the color blocked in, or soften the edges by blending outwards. A bit too much for your liking? Apply it to just the inner corners of your eyes instead and blend to soften.
