Beautyscopes: February 2021

Roses are red, violets are blue, read along for what the stars have aligned for you!

Find ways to safely connect with the ones you love this month, Aries. The pandemic has kept so many of us from enjoying social interaction and it’s so easy to feel alone during this time. Whether it’s virtually or in-person from a distance, it’s time to let the ones you love back into your life.

Notes of a warm fragrance can transport us to a time where we weren’t so cold and isolated. Clinique’s My Happy Cookies and Kisses Perfume musters up memories of a time where the kitchen emanated the smell of freshly baked cookies, it envelops your senses in warm cinnamon, vanilla and chestnut notes.

Take the time to find a new love this month, Taurus. By “new love” we mean a hobby. Working from home can take a toll on your life and finding something new to keep you away from constantly checking your emails after hours will do wonders for your mental state.

Staying inside with the heat on can really dehydrate your skin. While the temps outside don’t give you much of a choice, you can incorporate products into your skincare to give your skin the boost it needs. Wishful’s Thirst Trap Juice Hyaluronic Acid & Peptide Hydrating Facial Serum is a glass of water in a bottle. Three types of hyaluronic acid work together to plump and hydrate skin for a healthy year-round glow.

This month is all about setting aside time for yourself, Gemini. It’s easy to get caught up in work but now that you’re in a good place professionally, you can sit back and give back to yourself.

Listen, JLo is in her 50s and looks like she’s in her 20s, which is why her new line of skincare should definitely be on all of our radars. While there is a whole range of products, the ones that truly stand out to us are the two that come in the Star Power Duo. The JLO Glow Multitasking Serum tightens and lifts While The Blockbuster is a Wonder Cream that instantly brightens and nourishes. Together these two products are your very own JLO and AROD level power couple.

February is the month of love, so it’s time to surround yourself with it and rid your life of the toxic people who are in it. It’s hard to let people go, but in all reality letting them stick around is only hurting you and your success.

Leo, this month work on strengthening the relationships rather than building new ones. People flock to you because of your radiant personality which is great but remember quality over quantity applies to the company you keep as well.

There’s plenty of products out there that will mask and cover up your skin but why not wear something that looks great but also works to improve your complexion over time. Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation takes the power of their Even Better Clinical line and pairs it with the quality foundations that Clinique is known for. When it comes to having makeup products, look for the ones that work with your skin not against it.

This month will be a great one for your overall health and wellbeing. Spend time on the things that get you moving, especially so many of us are stuck inside working from home. Even though it’s cold, get outside and soak up some of that bright winter sunshine.

Speaking of getting outside, Anastasia Beverly Hills new Brow Freeze Styling Wax will keep your brows in place without resorting to bitter temperatures. Style then set and know that no amount of wind, snow or rain will move them out of place.

Ditch the scumbags this month, Libra, and focus your attention on the ones you love. If this pandemic has taught us anything, it's that time is precious and life is short, so why waste another breath on the people that bring you down. You’re deserving of so much better, let the ones who care for you show you that.

This month go the extra mile for the people in your life. While it’s easy to want to stay inside and just ride out this pandemic it’ll be good for you to surround yourself (virtually) and give back to the people you care about.

There’s no better feeling than receiving a bouquet roses from someone you love. Give your cheeks the same love and attention with the Winky Lux Cheeky Rose Cream Blush. Almost too pretty to use, this blush provides the perfect just kissed flush to your cheeks.

SELF. CARE. That’s really all you need to know this month, Aquarius. Listen we were all so excited to finally kick-off the new year and while it’s going slightly better than last year, there were still a few hiccups throughout January. Not to mention, we are still in a major pandemic and a lot of our daily routines are still not what they used to be. Rather than dwell on the bad, reflect on the good this month and put forth some goals to ensure your sanity and happiness for weeks to come.

Let the power of retinol and pure argan oil work wonders for your skin this month with Josie Maran’s new Whipped Argan Pro-Retinol Body Butter. Massage this into your dry winter skin for immediate relief and smoother skin over time. A little bit of pampering goes a LOOOONNGGG way these days, so just sit back and enjoy it.
