The Best Makeup for Your Zodiac Sign: Pisces Edition
It’s time to celebrate all the pretty Pisces whose birthdays fall between February 1 and March 20! This month’s zodiac sign makeup profile has been customized and inspired by your set-by-the stars personality traits, and let me tell you, babes of all signs are going to want to recreate this dreamy look. Heading in a whole new direction from the royal blue smokey eye featured in our Aquarius zodiac makeup tutorial, this Pisces-inspired look falls into a light, luminous realm that focuses on healthy-looking, glowing skin. We called in a friend of ours, the beautiful Justine Sharifi, co-founder of Perform for Life, whose world revolves around health, to set the tone for this glowing look! Beauty begins with the skin for this Piscean babe, so grab the best juice recipe for your zodiac sign to set the tone, and then read on for this month’s star-styled look!
Pisces are known as the chameleon of the zodiac for their ability to go with the flow of life. The two opposing fish positioned away from one another are a clear symbol of the duality a Piscean possesses in her highly intuitive, compassionate demeanor. This well-loved beauty tends to be of service to those around her. Her contagious joy emanates from below the surface, exposing an inner beauty more impactful than her appearance. Never wanting to rock the boat in life — or her beauty regimen — she sticks to her simple, glowing skin, neutral eyes and a luminous lip to truly highlight her natural gorgeousness. Pisceans like to leave those who surround them with a feeling of awe, without standing out in an obvious effort, which makes this subtle yet flawless glowing look the perfect zodiac beauty profile for Pisces’ moment in the spotlight.
The Makeup Look for Pisces: Glowing Skin, Bold Brows, Neutral Eyes + Mauve Lip
Prep — Glowing Skin: Apply your base makeup with our go-to flawless base makeup tutorial. Keep your blush in a natural, soft pigment for your skin tone. For Justine, we used the classic NARS Blush in Orgasm ($30) because it has a perfect peachy shimmer that brings out a natural flush in almost all skin tones. This is the time to go big on your highlighter — this look is ALL about that glow! A favorite of mine that looks stunning on Justine is Benefit Cosmetics Sunbeam Liquid Highlighter ($26). Apply and blend above your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, above your cupid’s bow and in the center of your lower forehead for a natural radiant glow.
Step 1 — Neutral Eyes: Start off by applying a soft shimmering highlight like Virgin from Urban Decay Naked Palette ($54) to your brow bones, the inside corners of your eyes and slightly along the lower inside corner of your lash line. To contour your creases, go for a neutral matte brown like Naked from the same palette. To deepen the look, add a shimmering deep brown like Darkhorse (also from the Naked Palette) to the outside corners of your upper lid and along the lower lash line, slightly blending into the Virgin shadow.
Step 2 — Bold Brows: Bold brows don’t have to be unnatural looking. To get the best of both worlds, fill in your brows with a natural shade that matches your own hair color like TreStique Brow Pencil in Espresso ($25). Start out with the pencil side, and then go over your brows with the other end, which has a mascara wand that blends your brows with a matching gel for a flawless, naturally bold finish.
Step 3 — Slightly Mauve Luminous Lip: Depending on your skin tone, this hue may vary. The idea here is to get a lip shade that is slightly deeper than your own. For Justine’s pucker, we went with a combo of Too Faced Melted Chocolate in Chocolate Honey ($21) topped with a touch of Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Sophia ($20) to create a subtle yet kissable finish.
Finishing Touches — Tightline + Mascara: Top off with a black tight line — apply liner in your upper waterline only — and a couple coats of your favorite mascara for a fluttery soft shimmer.
If you want to take this look up a notch, swap out the natural lip with a vibrant hot pink or bright red for a more dramatic vibe. This look pairs well with any outfit, because it’s all about polishing off and flaunting your natural beauty.
