Witty Aries lives to make people feel good. Whether it’s by telling a joke or complimenting their shoes, she goes out of her way to leave people smiling. Making herself smile tends to take a back seat, though, so she has to find quick, easy ways to brighten up when her light dims. A bucket of popcorn and her favorite movie take care of the inside, and The Perfect Bright Lip Kit from Mally Beauty has her outside covered. Available in shades like Sexy Siren and Funky Fuschia, this Evercolor Shaping Lip Pencil and 7-in-1 Lip Magnifier (it’s a smoother, treatment, hydrator, primer, pencil, color and gloss in one!) will have her as pinup gorgeous as the ingenue! Revved up and renewed, back she goes to the kind-hearted salt mines. Treat yourself to speedy, saucy perfection at www.mallybeauty.com.

Cautious Taurus lives for the summer sun, but would never let it damage her skin. She also loves to pamper herself with little luxuries like fabulous makeup, so Shiseido UV Protective Liquid Foundation is her Holy Grail! This water and oil-resistant, SPF 42 potion uses SuperVeil-UV 360TM technology and ProfenseCELTM to shield her face from environmental attackers and keep her dewy and luminous all day long. Defend your dermis with their entire UV-busting skincare line at www.shiseido.com.

Captivating Gemini loves to be the center of attention. She walks, talks and dresses to guarantee that, no matter what the setting, all eyes are on her! That means that her makeup must always be beyond flawless. Now she can take it there with Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour. This long-wearing, creamy, lightweight shadow glides on smoothly and stays gorgeous for hours. If she’s in a rush, it even works as a super-brightening eyeliner. The result: unforgettable, glowing perfection! Render your peepers irresistible at www.lauramercier.com.

Curious Cancer loves summer because the weather is always perfect for exploring. A rainy day is just as intriguing to her as a sunny one, but it does tend to do a bigger number on her hair. For those times when sprinkles catch her raincoat-free, she’s always got a Hood To-Go stashed in her bag. This small, compact wonder (which stores in its own little bag) fits like a sleeveless hooded shrug under whatever she happens to be wearing and takes care of her coif in sleek style. Back up your tresses at www.hoodtogo.com.

Creative Leo loves to have her hands in as many artsy cookie jars as possible. From party planning to portrait painting, she’s at her best when focusing on a load of projects at once. One of her favorite outlets is her own face! Playing with makeup is the perfect way to feed her inner artist without filling her house with paint cans and tarps. To create the perfect pout, she uses Topshop Lip Bullet. This chunky, twist-up pencil is richly pigmented, satiny and comes in four fabulously dramatic shades. Make your mouth Rembrandt-worthy at www.topshop.com.

Extreme Virgo is so changeable, even she doesn’t know who she’s going to be from one day to the next! From demure lady to wild child, she’s a little bit of everything and loves it that way. Each version requires her own wardrobe and makeup, though, which can get complicated. When it’s time to tone down the sparkle, she counts on Julep Party’s Over Glitter Nail Polish Removal Kit to whisk it quickly away. This easy, mess-free system removes even the most stubborn sparkles in minutes, leaving her nails healthy and downright sedate. Free your fingertips at Sephora shops and www.sephora.com.

Social Libra thrives on interacting with others and her peaceful, harmonious nature often makes her the glue holding a group together. However, she knows that all of the warm fuzzies in the world won’t keep people buzzing around if she doesn’t keep herself smelling pretty! Caitlin’s Super Natural Deodorant and Body Spray is a perfectly plant-based, sustainable way to stay dry while adding a whiff of awesomeness to her aura. It even contains ingredients like aloe vera and witch hazel that can moisturize, prevent acne, reduce wrinkles and heal scars. What more could she ask? Freshen your fragrance at www.caitlinsupernatural.com.

Ambitious Scorpio is laser-focused on achieving greatness if it kills her! The way she works just might take down lesser mortals, but she thrives on stress and competition. To ensure that something as pesky as a headache or allergy attack doesn’t knock her out of the game, she carries the entire line of UrgentRx® fast powders everywhere she goes. These fast-dissolving, super effective medications squash every ache, pain or upset her body can muster without a drop of water involved and their credit card-sized packaging is purse and pocket-friendly. Find your nearest stock-up station at www.urgentRx.com.

Passionate Sagittarius gets so wrapped up in managing her career, family and anything else that wanders into her web of intensity that she often has no idea when one season ends and the next begins! Luckily, she attracts great friends who drag her out of her tunnel every now and then and force her to glam up and enjoy herself. She does love to play up her gorgeous eyes, so there’s always a set of Sonia Kashuk Full Eyelashes in her makeup bag. These lush lashes come complete with glue so she can quickly take her eyes from functional to fascinating. Where’s that pool party? Halloween shindig? Tree lighting ceremony? Easter parade? She might not know where she’s going, but she’ll look amazing when she gets there! Snag your own set at Target stores and www.target.com.

Responsible Capricorn is the Girl Most Likely to Have a Perfectly Organized Closet. She’s focused, independent and extremely smart. She also bores herself to tears! Sometimes she just has to break out of her buttoned-up rut, pick a body part to jazz up and get crazy. When it’s time to shake up her hair, she has fun with Rita Hazan POP Color Temporary Color Spray. Available in pink, blue and purple, this amazing spray lets her flirt up her ‘do for the day, then quickly shampoo herself back to normal. Spritz a little color into your life at www.ritahazan.com.

Spirited Aquarius is at her best when she’s leading the charge up a hill to victory. Or the girls down the street to happy hour. Leading anybody anywhere comes naturally, and she takes her role as a natural leader very seriously. She can’t have people looking to her for inspiration and finding dry skin and wrinkles, so she arms her face nightly with Merle Norman Anti-Aging Complex Night Cream. Its formula - an exclusive triple peptide complex, boosted with Reservatrol and Hydresia to reduce lines and increase elasticity and tone - is as bold and effective as she is. With her ethereal glow firmly in place, her devotees will follow her anywhere! Age-proof your skin at www.merlenorman.com.

Adventurous Pisces loves trying new things, whether it’s her barista’s latest latte concoction or a funky new eyeshadow palette. When it comes to skin care, she’s tough to pin down. So many fun choices, why marry just one? MD Complete Youthful Skin Sun Shield SPF 50 is the one product that stays on her radar. Sheer and packed with skin-protecting Vitamin C, Octinoxate, Zinc Oxide and Essential Fatty Acids, it gives her spa-worthy results at a do-it-yourself price! She’ll have a new lipstick tomorrow, but her skin treatment slot is filled. Fill yours at select Target stores, www.target.com and www.mdcompleteskincare.com.
