Horoscope Beauty How-Tos: Taurus

Keep on reading to discover hot, horoscope-influenced makeup, skincare and haircare picks perfect for Taurus babes.

Horoscope Beauty How-Tos: Taurus

Taurus is a typical earth sign — down to earth, hardworking, and often a little stubborn (or ultra-committed, if you prefer to paint it that way!). Taurus babes are usually quite the romantics despite having their feet firmly on the ground, and also exhibit elegance and grace.

This star sign can be a little cautious ’til they get the green light or feel as if they’re ready to do something. Then, once they’ve reached this point, their inner bull comes out and it’s all guns blazing! You’ll often see Taurus celebrities or style icons lag a little behind until a trend is well and truly mainstream, but when it is, you can be sure they’ll adopt it in full force.

Instead of letting the crowd dictate your beauty go-tos, though, why not look to your star sign? We’ve rounded up some essentials, including colours you should gravitate towards and our ultimate celebrity inspiration (hint: it’s a young supermodel known for her stunning, natural beauty).

Colours: Pinks and Coppers

Rose Gold Eye Look Taurus Horoscope Beauty

Lucky you, Taurus — the rose gold eye trend that’s sweeping Instagram is right up your astrological alley. Pinks, coppers and crimsons have lucky properties for a Taurus, so wearing them will give you strength and good fortune. If you want to encourage a little extra success in financial arenas, emerald green is also a great colour to opt for.

Play up the eyes (Taurus’s peepers are said to be intensely captivating!) with a rose gold look like the one above. Start off by buffing a pink eyeshadow shade into the crease, outer V and along the lower lash line — the Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in Cherry Bomb is great for this purpose. Then, apply the Nude by Nature Shimmering Sands Loose Eyeshadow in Rose Sand all over the lid, blending any harsh lines as needed. Go back in with Cherry Bomb to add more dimension, and finish with a pearlescent shade in the inner corner.

Crimson Eye Look Taurus Horoscope Beauty

If crimson is more your colour, we’re obsessing over the above look, featuring a rust colour in the crease, a deeper glitter on the lid and some cool statement liner in the inner corner. Recreate it by first taking the shade ‘Matt Kumar’ from theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow Palette and buffing into the crease and outer V.

If you want to add a little smoke, opt for your favourite warm-toned brown shade and deepen up these areas a little. When it’s time to go in with that stunning crimson sparkle, we can’t go past the Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Berber. Wet your brush and pack carefully onto the lid. Finally, use the Eye of Horus Liquid Define Eye Liner to create the inner corner detail.

Skincare: Luxe Loves

Circ-Cell ABO Blood Serum Horoscope Beauty Taurus

Taurus girls and guys work hard for their money, so it’s only natural that as a result, they love to splash a little cash on what’s important to them. Does this sound like you? If looking after your skin is a priority, investing in luxury items is a must-have. You don’t have to build an entire routine with expensive skincare, but depending on your budget, you should put that hard-earned $$ towards 1-3 products suited to your skin type.

Although no skin is the same, there are a few high-end items our customers keep coming back to, each of which would slot nicely into any Taurean’s routine. The Thalgo Foaming Micellar Cleansing Lotion is a great entry-level product if you’re just dabbling in luxury skincare, as it comes in at a somewhat affordable price point. Ideal for any skin type, you’ll never go back to the supermarket stuff after experiencing this micellar water.

Ready to step things up a bit? You’ll love this Kate Middleton-approved facial oil — yep, it’s the Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir. Formulated with 13 all-natural oils and extracts, this hydrating and perfecting face serum is packed full of antioxidant benefits derived from the earth. Doesn’t that just sound like a Taurus’s dream? We think so!

Finally, if money’s no object, we recommend you check out Circ-Cell Skincare. This innovative brand takes an all-encompassing approach to skincare, resting on the idea that with their products, you won’t need tons of varied formulas in your collection. Try out their ABO Blood Serum Face Rejuvenation to defy ageing signs like wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation spots.

Celebrity Inspiration: Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid Winged Eyeliner Horoscope Beauty Taurus

Ugh, girl crush, much!? Gigi Hadid is one of the hottest young models currently on the scene, along with sis Bella and BFF Kendall Jenner. Over the past few years, we’ve seen her grow up from fresh-faced beauty to a stunning supermodel who isn’t afraid to take risks with her beauty choices. Despite this, there are still a few signature looks Gigi always comes back to.

The first typically Gigi look is natural makeup with winged liner. The model focuses on glowing, gorgeous skin, softly tailored brows and a nude or ‘my lips but better’ lipstick shade. The star is her jet-blacked winged eyeliner, applied in a classic shape that’s never too thick or long. Pick up a pen liner for ultimate pigment and precision, such as the Poni Cosmetics Pegasus Liquid Liner, or the Youngblood Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen.

Gigi Hadid Sleek Ponytail Horoscope Beauty Taurus

The other signature look we associate with Gigi (and the middle Hadid, too — Bella loves this look) is a sleek, slicked-back high ponytail. To recreate this, start out with your trusty straightener, ensuring each section is perfectly smooth. Then, grab a brush of your choice — we love a soft bristle brush like the ghd Oval Dressing Brush — and pull hair back into a high ponytail. Give flyaways the flick with the ghd Smooth and Finish Serum. Finally, lock things into place using a strong-hold hairspray, such as the Tigi Bed Head Hard Head Hairspray. Voila — you’ll have people on the street asking whether you’re the long-lost Hadid sister!
