Horoscope Beauty How-Tos: Gemini

It’s that time of the month again, beauties! June has rolled around, meaning it’s officially Gemini season. If you’re a Gemini gal, you’ll be deep in your element this month. Enhance that natural power that comes with your birth month by harnessing your best traits and channeling them into some beauty decisions.

Keep on reading to discover beauty must-haves inspired by your horoscope, including makeup essentials, skincare suggestions and more.

Horoscope Beauty How-Tos: Gemini

If you’re an airy, energetic Gemini, you were born somewhere between May 21 and June 20. Often identified by their symbol, the twins, Geminis can be spontaneous, romantic and incredibly charming.

On the other side of the spectrum, you may have heard the term ‘two faced’ tossed around in regards to Geminis, so be sure to tap into that authenticity and avoid proving any stereotypes true!

Colours: Yellow and Green

Green Eye Makeup Gemini Horoscope Beauty

The colours that will help you tap into your truest, best self are yellow and green, Gemini. Although these can be a little tough to wear, we promise you’ll be able to rock them — after all, just whip out that trademark charm and everyone will be copying you in no time!

The best way to channel these shades into your look is through your eyeshadow. Although yellow and green may not seem like suitable colours for every day, they’re actually incredibly versatile, and are flattering on the majority of skin types.

If you’re still a bit wary about these shades, opt for something subtle, like a pop of colour in the inner corner. This is a great addition to otherwise simple looks with winged or geometric liner.

Another option is to create a neutral eyeshadow look like you usually would, then select a complementary shade (emerald green works well with nude tones!) and smudge it along the lower lash line, like the above.

If you’re ready to go all out, something like the above makes a stunning statement! Take your yellow or green shade and apply it all over the lid as part of a cut crease, ensuring you wet your brush a little for maximum pigment. Then, apply dramatic winged liner to tie everything together. Voila — the perfect Gemini glam.

Our shadow picks: the Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in ‘Fledgling’ is a stunning green, whereas the shade ‘Hype’ is a gorgeous, sunflower yellow. Prefer an emerald green? Go for the Gorgeous Cosmetics Colour Pro Eyeshadow in ‘Peter Pan’.

Skincare: Double the Fun

Dermalogica Skincare Duo Gemini Horoscope Beauty

As Gemini is symbolised by the twins, what better way to channel your horoscope than by trying out dual-action skincare? These premium pairs are sure to have you glowing in no time, each amplifying the other’s benefits for results that are out of this world!

Our go-to skincare duo for a dewy look under makeup is the Dermalogica Skin Perfecting Set, which features the Overnight Repair Serum and the SkinPerfect Primer SPF30. Where the Overnight Repair Serum firms, smooths restores the skin, the SkinPerfect Primer adds protection and a transformative layer pre-makeup application.

Another duo Geminis will love, especially if they have dry skin, is the pairing of the Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil and the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50. Phyto Replenish Oil hydrates, perfects and restores skin health whilst adding a gorgeous radiance. Dynamic Skin Recovery is a go-to SPF-laden moisturiser ideal for super dry skin types, working to repair damage and add ultimate hydration.

In the winter months, one of these two expert duos is ideal for anyone, but we can guarantee picking ’em up as a double the fun Gemini will only help you tap into your best skin!

Celebrity Inspiration: Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale Gemini Beauty Inspiration Horoscope

There are so many famous, fashionable Geminis, each of whom has their own notably unique style. From Helena Bonham Carter to Angelina Jolie, Stevie Nicks to Kanye West, Geminis aren’t afraid to step out of the box and cut quite the daring figure. However, our go-to Gemini gal is a small screen sweetheart who’s known for switching up her look whilst staying timeless — Lucy Hale of PLL fame.

Although her style couldn’t be categorised as too weird or out-there, Lucy Hale is definitely quirky, and has been seen to rock hundreds of hairstyles and makeup looks over the years. Despite not being afraid to play around, she’s consistently on trend and still gives off classic vibes. Emulate Lucy’s look through three key elements — hair, brows and lips.

Lucy has rocked a whole host of hairstyles and colours, but her dark brunette bob is definitely a trademark fave. No matter your hair length or type, take a page out of Lucy’s book by amping up the volume and creating tousled waves.

We love starting out with the Davines Volume Boosting Moisturising Mist on partially damp hair, then blow drying with a hair dryer and diffuser. Then, take your go-to curling iron (we’re currently coveting the Cloud 9 Waving Wand) and create some loose waves. Finish it all off with a texturising spray scrunched through the mid-lengths and ends, such as the evo Mister Fantastic Texture Spray.

For makeup, Lucy usually keeps things eye-catching yet simple, opting for neutral eyes and a bright lip, framed with bold brows. Give your brows shape and colour with an easy-to-use eyebrow pencil such as the Poni Cosmetics Brow Magic Eyebrow Pencil. It features a universal shade that adapts to your brow colour — how’s that for unique?!

Then, for the lips, make sure you’re using something ultra-pigmented and with tons of staying power. The Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick comes in a huge, stunning shade range that includes essential reds and pinks.
