Welcome to this month’s Beauty Horoscope—our series on astrology-based beauty. Each month, we celebrate the corresponding zodiac sign, and offer tips to help you cultivate your best look. Not your b-day month? Don’t sweat it—we’ll profile the entire zodiac together over the course of the year. Read on for some Leo-specific beauty, skincare, and makeup tips:
Happy Birthday, Leo!
As “king/queen of the jungle” Leo, you’re truly the unofficial ruler of the zodiac. As a natural born leader with a strong sense of self—Leos are capable of achieving just about anything they put their mind to. But it’s their tender warm-heartedness, loyalty, and quirky sense of humor that makes Leo truly irresistible.
Leo belongs to the element of fire and is ruled by the sun. Literally and metaphorically, Leo is known to worship the sun—which makes having a summer birthday ideal. So it makes perfect sense that our beauty horoscope for Leo includes some of our favorite products for achieving a perfectly sun-kissed glow. It’s your time to shine, Leo!
We know you work hard, Leo—and with little time to spare, we’re making it easy for you to get a bronzy glow without spending any time (really, none) in the sun. Our go-to? RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer. The natural, cream-based bronzer blends seamlessly for a healthy glow. And because it’s free of glitter and orange undertones, this bronzy sheen looks beautiful and natural.
For a bold, ultra-glossy eye look, reach for Surratt Beauty Lid Lacquer. The deeply pigmented shades can be applied sheer, bold, or mixed for a unique, perfectly dewy look. This sultry eye shadow also comes in a variety of versatile, mix-and-match shades so you can create a natural glowing effect or a full goddess-of-the-sun aesthetic.
Of course, no look is perfect without the right lip shade—lucky for you, Leo, there’s Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow Lip. The subtle, super-glossy shades add a sensuous shimmer that creates a three-dimensional reflective effect. Even better? Vitamin E and nourishing antioxidants protect and condition lips for a perfectly kissable pout.
Finish the look by adding an effortless, streak-free glow all over with Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads for Body. These multitasking, sunless tanning pads exfoliate, firm, and smooth for flawless, lightly-bronzed skin. And finally, give nails eye-catching shine with Smith & Cult’s nail lacquer in the shade “Fosse Fingers”. The metallic, terracotta-inspired color gives off a shimmer that’s just as dazzling as you are.
