Beautyscopes: April 2020

A worldwide pandemic, non-stop working from home and social distancing have us all feeling on-edge, tired and honestly just down. This month, we hope to bring some beauty and joy to all of you with some of our favorite and new products on the market. Stay strong, we’re all in this together!

Aries, you’ve come such a long way this year already and with times as uncertain as these you may find yourself feeling lost. Don’t let the uncertainty of today make you forget all the hard work you’ve accomplished. When things start to go back to normal, you’ll be in a great place, able to pick right back up. 

Over the next month, take the extra downtime to pamper yourself at home. Gone are the days of facials and massages, but Sephora makes at home facials easy with their Facial Cooling Globes. De-puff and de-stress your worries and woes away.

Take a break this month, Taurus. You have been spread too thin over the past few weeks and now it’s time to give yourself a minute to catch your breath. While socializing isn’t a thing right now that doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected with friends, it just means you need to get creative about it. Digital hangouts are the hottest way to stay in touch but at a distance. Spend a few hours a week catching up with the ones who make you happiest.

We know most people aren’t wearing a lot of makeup these days, which is why Frankies Bikinis Skin Glow is the only product you’ll need. Formulated with mineral pigments to provide a seamless and naturally flushed pop of color, perfect for keeping you from looking washed out on FaceTime.

Work on re-evaluating your long-term goals this month, Virgo. Life has thrown us all a curveball with the pandemic and as you work through these difficult times you should think about how you can change your goals and plans to fit within this new normalcy.

Scorpio, this month is all about taking the time for personal growth. The quarantine has you stuck at home, giving you the time to work on yourself.
