Beautyscopes: June 2021

HOT GIRL SUMMER IS HERE! We’ve been cooped up for over a year now and it’s finally time to set our sights on socializing and spending time with people again. Read along for everything you need to truly embrace the beauty of summer!

Creativity is the theme for you this month, Aries. Look towards the beauty of the outside for inspiration. Changing things up in your everyday routine will not only spark joy but it will also bring some excitement into your life.

To be honest, it’s hard to find someone more creative than Barbie. Just look at all the careers she’s held and all the hobbies she has?! While we get she’s just a doll, she’s also an ICON which is why the Malibu Barbie Pressed Shadow Palette from Colourpop is made for YOU! With 15 shades in mattes, shimmers and tropical hues you have everything you need to create Barbie-approved looks.

Putting yourself first this month will be vital for your mental health, Taurus. While it can feel selfish putting all your time and energy on yourself, it’s actually just called self-care and we all deserve it. Treat yourself to something that sparks joy and brings happiness.

Sometimes it's the simplest things that bring us the most happiness. Jo Malone London has captured simplistic aromas and turned them into memorable scents. Our favorite is the Orange Peel Cologne. Bright, citrusy and woodsy tones create the ultimate summer scent. It truly is sunshine in a bottle and an instant mood lifter!

Success is in the books for you this month, Gemini. All your hard work will pay off and you’ll be able to finally take a step back and smile at all the progress you have made. Those around you may look to you for guidance so share your wisdom and offer tips because after all, what goes around comes around.

With life looking a lot more normal these days, you’ll find yourself wanting to get outside to celebrate your recent successes. Nothing ruins the mood more than a sunburn, which is why SPF NEEDS to be included in your skincare routine. Sunday Riley’s Lighthearted Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 Daily Face Sunscreen stands out with its 99.99% oil-free formula that is also packed with antioxidants and blue-light defense AND once applied it dries down to a velvety matte finish that will keep you shine free in even the hottest of temps!

After a busy spring, this month will bring with it plenty of time for relaxing. Enjoy the slower pace as you take time for yourself. Pick up a new book and lounge by the pool or get outside and enjoy the things that you weren’t able to enjoy this time last year.

Last year we spent our days inside while our makeup collected dust from never being used. With the world finally on the mend you’ll find yourself wanting to go out and dress up again. A lot of our views may have changed over the past year in terms of what we want in our makeup. Lightweight foundations are seeing a surge in popularity and Makeup Forever’s new Watertone Skin-Perfecting Tint Foundation is on our radar. The water like formula provides a radiant finish that smooths over imperfections and provides up to 24 hours of moisture. It lets your natural beauty shine through and is available in a wide range of shades.

Social season is upon us and this will be your month to truly shine, Leo. You thrive in social settings and your calendar will quickly begin to fill up as more and more people are ready to get back together. After a year of social distancing and keeping your social bubble tight, you’re more than ready to pop that bubble and get back out there.

ColourPop truly knows how to make a statement with their palettes and their new Fade Into Hue Palette does just that. With 30 shades, yes THIRTY, there are literally endless possibilities and looks to create. With a calendar as booked as yours, you’ll be able to switch it up for each and every event. Incorporate pops of color and shimmer into all your beauty looks whether you’re finally heading back into the office or going to enjoy drinks on a patio with friends.

Enjoy your summer this month by keeping things simple, Virgo. This past year taught us to enjoy the little things and it’s in those moments that we realized what truly makes us happy. You don’t need over the top events and outrageous parties to have fun, rather intimate dinners with friends and days spent outside at the local markets might be all it takes to bring you joy.

Look to nature for some of the best skincare products. Fresh’s Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash is all that stands between you and flawless skin this summer. Kiss goodbye the remnants of stubborn “mask-ne” and say hello to brighter, smoother and moisturized skin. Packed with sugar crystals that dissolve as you massage into the skin and strawberry and black currant extracts to help maintain a healthy complexion.

Finding a new hobby this month will give you a new sense of motivation and inspiration this month, Libra. Changing up your routine is an awesome way to rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. Better yet, take up the hobby with friends. Not only will you both provide accountability towards one another, but you’ll also fulfill your need for social interaction!

Learning to take care of your skin will forever be improving and changing, which is why adding in new products is always going to be a good idea. Tatcha’s Ageless Revitalizing Neck Cream is a must have when it comes to firming and smoothing the delicate neck area. We spend so much of our time looking down at our screens that gravity will eventually take a toll leaving you with a “tech neck”.  Apply a neck cream daily to not only fight gravity but also provide age-defying ingredients that will literally help to turn back the clock.

Financial issues should be lifted this month as you become more familiar with your bills and responsibilities. Additionally, learning to go with the flow this month will open a lot of fun new opportunities in both your social and professional life. Understand that there are changes on the horizon and do your best to embrace them.

Just because you’re going to get a grip on your finances this month doesn’t mean you need to go all out on your purchases. Some of the best beauty products on the market won’t break the bank. Head and Shoulders’ Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse has become a staple in our showers and our weekly wash routine. Costing UNDER $10, this rinse not only smells AMAZING but gives life to our hair that we didn’t know we were missing. For those that run oilier, use up to 2x a week for a shine and volume.

There are so many exciting things on the horizon for you, Sagittarius. This month is all about preparing yourself for the upcoming changes. Spend your time decluttering your life. Prioritize things by importance and learn where to exert a majority of your time and energy.

Getting a good night’s sleep not only keeps you mentally strong but it’s good for your skin as well. CocoKind’s Sleep C Tonic works from the inside out. A glass at the end your day will help to relax and calm your mind. The tropical taste makes it easy and enjoyable to drink. The antioxidant-rich powder promotes glowing skin and provides a healthful boost to your immune system.

This month will be all about communication and patience for you Capricorn. Learning to let things happen on their own will alleviate a lot of unneeded stress in your life. While it’s nice to feel in control of everything, sometimes that is just not the reality. Control what you can and let fate handle the rest.

If you’re looking to control things look no further than your makeup brushes. A solid brush will not only provide flawless coverage, but it makes your application extremely easy. The Fenty Beauty Face Shaping Brush 125 is a favorite of ours for many reasons. First, it’s such a versatile shape so you can use it for blush, bronzer or highlight. Next, its bristles are great for applying cream or powder products. Lastly, the price and look of the brush are both very aesthetically pleasing.

Work is going to push you to your limit this month, Aquarius. A lot of major projects are going to be begging for your time and attention. Learning to juggle all of this and enjoy the start of summer may seem overwhelming. Learn to ask for help and collaborate with coworkers to get the job done and done right. Times like this are what help make you stand out when promotions are on the table.

Keep things simple this month when it comes to makeup. No need to spend a bulk of time getting ready when you know your workday is going to be non-stop. NUDESTIX Nudies All Over Face Color Stick are a one stop complexion shop. These radiant sticks come in 4 shades that don’t necessarily conceal like foundation but rather enhance your beauty. Pair with a volume boosting mascara for a model worthy barely there look.

Reach out to old friends this month, Pisces. This past year has allowed us plenty of time to think about who we want to be and who we want to surround ourselves with. Socialize with people who know you and enjoy your presence. Rather than spending time trying to grow your social circle, work on enhancing the circle you already have.

Summer is here and with that comes some scorching temps. While sitting out on a patio and sipping drinks is fun it can easily get ruined by a sweat sesh. Listen, sweat happens and rather than waiting for the floodgates to open, prevent it with Megababe’s Body Dust. Powder yourself before going out to keep sweat nearly non-existent, but for those super-hot days toss it in your purse to powder on the go! The talc-free formula has a calming lavender scent and feels and looks invisible once applied.
