Lookbook: Zodiac Part II

Hello my beautiful friends! A warm welcome back to all of my old and new readers! Once again, I apologize that my posting schedule has been way out of whack, but I have a ton of content to catch up on in a short amount of time, so bear with me. I’m trying to post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays when I can to make up for the lack of posts that I had planned, but we’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, as promised here is the much anticipated second installment of my Zodiac Lookbook! (Check out Part I here) Again, I’m sorry it’s late but it’s finally here!

This round we’re covering Aries (hey-o any fellow Aries out there?!), Taurus and Gemini. Since it’s been a hot minute, I’ll go ahead and give a brief overview of how this series works.

Instead of my seasonal installments of lookbooks, this year I’ve decided to base them on the Astrological signs. Using astrology.com and a lot of Googling, I picked out some key traits and color palettes symbolic of each sign to go along with each look. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

First up, I have all of the base products which I used to create the canvas for each of these looks. These products were used in each look and I simply changed the eyeshadow, colored eyeliner,  blush, highlight, and lip color.

Base Products:

Look 1: Aries

Aries: The Ram; March 21- April 19

Traits: Independent, Enthusiastic, Moody, Impulsive, Loyal

Element: Fire (Cardinal)

Aries is the first sign and the cardinal fire sign, basically meaning that Aries is in charge and a  natural leader. For this, I included lots of gold tones to represent their bright personality, and number one position. Aries is also a fire sign so I used plenty of warm tones to play off of their fiery personality. I kept the eyes hazy and well blended to give a smoldering effect. To play off of Aries’ boldness, I did a bright red matte lip and strong graphic liner, outlined in gold. The Aries description pretty much fits my personality to a T and I strongly identify with the Aries traits, so I was pretty much feelin’ myself in this look.

Look 2: Taurus

Taurus: The Bull; April 20 – May 20

Traits: Dependable, Generous, Materialistic/Self-Indulging

Element: Earth

From my understanding, Tauruses’ appreciation for material goods can be connected to royalty, and even Queen Elizabeth II herself is a Taurus. It is also why I paired this look with a tiara-esque headband. Purple is a color often associated with royalty, so I based this look off of this color. I feel like this also makes sense since my sister is a Taurus and purple is her favorite color. I created a strong angular shaped eye look to inspire a commanding presence and used plenty of metallics to go along with the material possessions Taurus indulges in. Taurus is an Earth sign, so they enjoy being grounded and having a solid foundation. I stayed within the color palette of all purples to keep things from getting too crazy, and added the liner accent under the wing to keep things straightforward.

Look 3: Gemini

Gemini: The Twins; May 21 – Jun 20

Traits: Energetic, Imaginative, Devious

Element: Air

Gemini have a lot of energy and enthusiasm, so I used a bright color palette to reflect that. Gemini are represented by twins so I symbolized that with a double winged liner and threw my hair into two braids for good measure. Gemini are also loud mouth and love to talk, so I emphasized the lips with a very generous highlight. This look didn’t go exactly as planned from my Pinterest reference photo, but we’re rolling with it.

  1. You always have such creative ideas, Megan! I’m so impressed with your blog. I’m an Aries, so of course, I love that bold red lip look best, but all three are terrific!
