April Showers bring May Beautyscopes! Check out the newest and best products recommended just for you!




Aries, get ready to have your best month yet! Throughout May, you will excel in whatever you do. Make it a goal to take on as many chances and opportunities that are thrown your way. Not only will everything be on the up and up for you but also everyone will be watching and cheering you on. That being said, with a month as big and bountiful as yours it’s important you exude that success in every way possible; Jo Malone’s newest fragrance, Star Magnolia, is the perfect scent of magnolia leaf and orange blossom to spritz when you want your scent to match your prosperity.

Available for $70-$135 at Jo Malone.
  



Taurus, you are going to have an abundance of energy this month, which will lead to a lot of success and prosperity. Be sure not to push yourself too hard otherwise you risk having a middle of the month burnout. Balance is what will be the true factor in your successes. To find this balance you will need to offset that energy with equal amounts of relaxation, Captain Blankenship’s Sunshine Body Cream is the perfect lotion to apply after a long day. Its calming scent and non-greasy formula will leave your skin flawless, smooth and moisturized to tackle whatever next you have on your plate for rest of the month.

Available for $24 at Captain Blankenship.
  



Gemini, we know you have so many great ideas and plans that sometimes it can become overwhelming. However, this month you and a close friend will be totally in sync. This means it’s time to use both of your knowledge and power to team up and turn those dreams and ideas into a reality #dreamteam. While you and your friend work overtime towards those goals it’s important to remember to still take care of yourself which is why Lancôme’s Visionnaire Crescendo Dual-Phase Night Peel will work just as hard at renewing your skin to reveal a smooth, even and glowing complexion.

Available for $75 at Lancôme and other high-end cosmetics counters.
  



Guess what Cancer? This month all the hard work and overtime you have been putting into things these past few months is going to finally pay off. May is your light at the end of the tunnel and it will only go up from here! Make plans with friends and family to celebrate everything you have accomplished. You look great, you feel great and Giorgio Armani wants you to smell great too! Sun Di Gioia is the perfect warm and inviting scent for the woman who exudes confidence. While you are out celebrating with friends this scent will capture the attention of those around you that’s if your stunning personality hasn’t already!

Available for $50-$72 at Giorgio Armani.
  



Leo, this month you may feel a little burnt out from just life in general. You need to go out and mix things up a little bit, join a sports league or maybe finally go into that boutique fitness studio that you have been curious to try out. You have been so busy dominating in every other aspect of your life these past few months and now it is time to re-dedicate time to your overall health and fitness. Having a happy and healthy clear mind will relieve stress in all other parts of your life! Make sure your new health and fitness lifestyle encompasses all aspects of your body, including your skin! Renee Rouleau’s Triple Berry Smoothing Peel is the perfect product to slather all over your face after a long day. Not only does it smell and look like berry jam but also it is packed with powerful fruit AHAs, BHAs and enzymes to unclog pores and smooth your skin to reveal a radiant and clear complexion. It also has an impressive celebrity following because of how well it works, just ask Demi Lovato! Leo, this is your month to give your body and soul a total 180 and this product is perfect to helping you get there!

Available for $86.50 at Renee Rouleau.
  



Okay, listen up Virgo, this month is all about taking a deep breath and relieving yourself of last month’s stresses. May is a month of renewing your energy so you can focus on yourself and your goals with a clear mind. You should step outside of your comfort zone and try something new, for all you know it could grow to become your next favorite hobby. While you’re balancing out your life it’s also equally as important to balance your skin as well, Skin Laundry Balancing Antioxidant Toner is the perfect alcohol free and antioxidant packed toner to swipe over your freshly cleansed face and neck to even out your pH levels and remove any extra buildup of dirt and grime to give you a flawless complexion for a flawless month.

Available for $22 at Skin Laundry.
  



Libra, you are going to kick off May with some serious energy and good vibes. You will enter this month with confidence and perseverance to succeed in whatever it is you set your mind to. Make sure you don’t use up all that energy at work, make sure to balance it out into your social life as well (you never know who may be admiring from afar)! By the middle of the month if you’re feeling a little fatigued it’s okay to take it down a notch and just take some time for yourself. Get outdoors and soak up a little of that late spring sunshine even if it’s just for walk, run or an afternoon lounging in the park. For rainy days or anytime you want to bring that glowing sunshine with you just sweep a bit of Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick on your cheeks, shoulders and anywhere else you want a nice kiss of sun. This cult product comes in multiple shades but we find that the bronze brick is best at achieving a “just back from the Caribbean” glow. You will be shocked at how much a little glow can brighten your day and the day of those around you!

Available for $48 at Bobbi Brown and most high-end beauty counters.
  



This month, Scorpio, you may want to indulge in some decadent treats and just toss all your hard work out the window but try to keep your self-control in check. You will be so happy to see all your dedication pay off very soon! By the middle of the month an abundance of things will start to go your way so be sure to relax and enjoy that time but don’t let your relaxation get out of control! Remember this month is all about practicing balance. However, if you are feeling the need to indulge in something then we suggest Lancôme’s Grandiôse Mascara. Not only does the bottle look like something out of Beauty and the Beast but also the formula and wand give you the most full, fluttery and volumized lashes ever. While you are learning to keep a control over every other part of your life this is the one area where we urge you to let loose and go big or go home. A little (or lot) of mascara never hurt anyone!

Available for $32 at Lancôme and most high end beauty counters.
  



A healthy month is a happy month and that’s exactly what May is looking like for you, Sagittarius. This month is all about achieving your health goals and setting your body up for a spectacular summer! Look to others for motivation and maybe join a group fitness class or a local running group. Getting healthy is always more fun when you’re doing it with others. While you’re sculpting and toning your muscles it’s important to keep your skin fresh and clear as well. Belif’s Peat Miracle Revital Clay Mask is a great way for you to keep your complexion fresh, bright, clear and shine free. This clay-based mask is great as you head into summer, as it will absorb extra shine without over drying your skin. We can assure you that dedicating just 10 minutes, 2 days a week will leave you with amazing results and your radiant skin will complement your glowing and healthy body and mind.

Available for $40 at Sephora.
  



Capricorn, get ready for a super busy month! You have so many thoughts and ideas for May so it’s important for you to go into it all with a clear mind. Towards the middle of the month you will find some newfound energy, use that to really buckle down on some of your bigger projects. Every few days this month it’s important to sit back and reflect on what you have achieved so far and what left you have planned to do. A great way to unwind at the end of the day is with a glass of wine in hand, a candle lit and a mask on your face. Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding is a fantastic mask that is packed with detoxifying charcoal to keep your skin clear, bright and shine free. Its earthy scent will relax you for a solid night's rest and prep you to put your best face forward for the days to come!

Available for $38 at Boscia.
  



Your creative thoughts and ideas will flourish this month, Aquarius. You will go into May with a full plate of opportunities. Choose which ideas you want to focus on and then go at them with everything you’ve got. Towards the middle of the month it’s important that you reach out to friends and family to take a break from all your hard work. Plan a picnic or spend a day exploring the city, not only will this give you a much-needed break from your routine but it could also spark new ideas and goals! Be prepared for a busy month of working hard, but know that it will all pay off in the end. A busy schedule demands a no-fuss and easy beauty routine, which is why trèStiQue’s beauty bundles are a must have. We are currently loving the limited edition Modern Mama Essentials set which includes four beauty bag must haves; concealer, highlighter, brow and eyeliner all contained in a sleek black neoprene container that can be tossed in your bag for on-the-go touchups throughout the day! Each product goes above and beyond leaving you with a flawless complexion! **Warning the highlight may require sunglasses when exposed to direct sunlight…total #glowgoals**

Available for $85 at trèStiQue.
  



Pisces, this month is going to be a busy one for you, albeit a fun one. With the warm weather and April showers coming to an end you will have friends and family asking you to hang out all the time. Obviously socializing is good to brighten your spirits and prep you for what is going to be one fun summer. With a packed schedule you are sure to have more than a few late nights and early mornings. One of the first places that exhaustion will show up is around your eyes; fight those dark circles and heavy bags with Kat Rudu’s Cooling Cucumber Eye Bright Gel. This vegan protein packed revitalizing eye gel strengthens elasticity and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles while relieving dark circles and puffiness with its powerful antioxidants all the while leaving a cooling sensation to the delicate eye area. So when you wake up on a Saturday morning all bleary eyed from the night before just know that this little superhero is sitting on your vanity to save the day!

Available for $58 at Kat Rudu.
