We’re now stepping into the second half of our Zodiac Beauty series, as we discover more radiant beauty inspired by the stars. This month we move from the playful bold lip for Gemini to a bronze smokey eye and berry lip look brought to you by our very own celestial Cancer babe and Senior Visual Designer, Annie. What better way to switch up our makeup routine than to rely on advice that was written in the stars?


Cancer Beauty Profile If your sign is Cancer or you have a Cancer close to your heart, then you know first hand how unwavering these souls are in their loyalty. Always the great listener and nurturing to those around her, she knows how to care for loved ones without losing sight of herself. Which is why her flawless radiant skin needs to be topped off with a subtle and sexy bronzed smokey eye and bold berry lip that embody just enough of that self-loving confidence.


Get The Look For Cancer: Bronzed Smokey Eye, Radiant Skin + Berry Lip


Prep: Flawless Face + Luminous Highlighter: Follow this tutorial here to get your flawless foundation to build the rest of this glowing look. The key component is to get glowing skin with a really radiant highlighter like Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo ($30). Apply with a fan brush to your upper cheekbones, slightly over your blush, up onto your temples, down the bridge of your nose, on your brow bones and finally right above your cupid’s bow.

Step 1: Bronzed Smokey Eye: This is all about a one-sweep application of a reflective bronzed shadow like Tarte Tarteist Metallics Shadow in Hussy ($14). Use your finger or a flat makeup brush to swipe on a layer of this highly pigmented shimmering bronze shadow.

Step 2: Bold Berry Lip: This shade is the perfect balance of a deep brownish red and a berry hue, suggesting a sweet self confidence when paired with an otherwise simple look. Annie is wearing Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Deep Brown-Red ($26).

Finishing Touches: Mascara Up: Finally, add a coat or two of your favorite mascara to complete this look.


Couldn’t help but jump in for a little moment with this bombshell!

Remember, this look is inspired by Cancer, but truly meant to be worn by all! Have fun switching things up in your makeup routine – you never know what new look you’ll take on as your own.
