Don’t sweat it—we will profile the entire zodiac together over course of the year.) Read on for some Scorpio-specific beauty, skincare and makeup tips:
Happy Birthday, Scorpio!
Fearless, passionate, and eerily perceptive, Scorpions are the most misunderstood of all the Zodiac signs. (Seriously—whether they love them or love to hate them, everyone has an opinion on uber-mysterious Scorpio.) Scorpions are seductive, beguiling, and mesmerizing, possessing a magnetic allure that few can resist. They’re are also highly competitive, stubborn souls, with a sometimes-off-putting intensity and fiery temper. But at their best, they’re capable of unparalleled empathy, kindness, and depth. Indeed, like their namesake animal, they use their hard shells and venomous sting to conceal a vast sea of emotions.
The most sensual of the all signs (TMI, but Scorpio is the sign that’s linked with the reproductive organs and all things sexy), Scorpions can attract anyone and everyone. They put out some serious bad-girl (or boy) vibes, and their sense of style follows suit. Scorpions love to go against the grain, and they can pull off almost any look, regardless of how outside-the-box it is. Black is their power color, and Scorpions look amazing in sensual textures like leather and lace.
This month, play up your eyes with bold, graphic eyeliner, topping off the look with faux lashes to add dramatic height, length, and volume. Opt for a dark mani, an edgy oxblood lip, or anything that’s on the witchy, gothic side. Bold, vampy colors, and sensual textures will complement innate sexiness, and help you feel like your very best self during your birthday month.
