Make Up Horoscope

What's your make up horoscope say?

I'm really into astrology and not horoscopes. I don't believe in the "this is what is going to happen to you today" but I definitely believe in characteristics and behaviors that are associated with given signs. With that being said, I was browsing the Internet look for beauty stuff of course and ended up on
totalbeauty.com. I saw make up horoscope and immediately was intrigued. So I read them all and decided I'd post what I found on my blog. Maybe you ladies are just as intrigued as I was.

The guru is Michele Bernhardt of
MyInnerWorld.com and she claims by wearing the suggested eye shadows it will balance your life. Each suggestion comes with an explanation as to why the color best suits you and a recommendation from a senior MAC Pro artist Jennifer Karsten on how to wear it. 

What I wonder is what about people that are on the cusp (border 2 signs) like myself? Is it best to combine the two colors??? Hmmmm. Even if that is the case mine is a good combo. (I'm a LIBRA)


Your best eyeshadow color is: Red

One to try: Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Heat, $18

Why: This color signifies passion, strength and courage. Wear it to increase your strength, energy and vitality when beginning something new or initiating action.

How to wear it: Apply vibrant red shadow over a neutral or gray shadow to tone down the brightness. And be sure to apply eye drops if necessary first; you don't want the red shadow to highlight red eyes (and believe us, it will).


Your best eyeshadow color is: Green

One to try: Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Eye Shadow Duo in Green Eyes Organics, $7.95

Why: This color rejuvenates the spirit. It resonates with stability and healing and gives you balance of strength and substance. Wearing it helps heal the body and attract wealth and prosperity.

How to wear it: MAC Pro artist Jennifer Karsten says: "Try taking an olive [green] and sweeping it on the eyelids and lower lash lines around a [black] fully lined eye for a smoky look."


Your best eyeshadow color is: Yellow 

One to try: L'Oreal Paris HiP Bright Shadow Duos in Flamboyant, $6.99

Why: Energizing and stimulating, this is a color filled with radiance and light. It has the ability to lift your spirits. Wearing it increases your memory and communication skills.

How to wear it: "Bright sunshine yellow can be beautiful as a pop of color on inner corners of eyes and lids. Finish with a smoky black [outer] corner."


Your best eyeshadow color is: Pink

One to try: Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in Pink Pearl, $20

Why: This color inspires love and can be worn in times of change or transition. It is also a good color to wear when you're in need of emotional healing. Wearing it opens the heart and increases receptivity.

How to wear it: "To avoid the 'bunny rabbit effect,' keep pinks on the 'icy' side with a bit of white in them. Try a soft rose shade with a more muted tone as a natural wash of color all over lids and into crease and keep the lashes 'starry eyed' with a light [coat of] mascara," says Karsten.


Your best eyeshadow color is: Orange

One to try: MAC Eye Shadow in Orange, $14.50

Why: This color resonates with power and greatness. Wearing it increases joy and optimism and also assists in aligning you with riches and your position in life.

How to wear it: Try wearing orange as eyeliner for a subtle pop. Wet a thin, flat brush and draw a line of orange powder shadow along upper lash lines.


Your best eyeshadow color is: Royal blue

One to try: Josie Maran Eye Shadow in Magic (a shimmery gray navy), $20

Why: This color resonates with beauty, purity and wisdom. It helps ease tension and promotes tranquility. Wearing blue opens the mind and encourages patience and eloquence.

How to wear it: Royal or navy blue is great worn as a liner since it helps make eyes look whiter. Or go all out by wearing a matching dark blue mascara or doing a blue smoky eye.


Your best eyeshadow color is: Light blue

One to try: Nars Single Eyeshadow in Heart of Glass, $22

Why: This color signifies love, beauty and balance. It embodies the essence of peace and serenity while inspiring you to be strong and take decisive action. Wearing it promotes balance and a sense of well-being.

How to wear it: Try sweeping light blue shadow on your lids and pairing it with a sheer white or silver shadow blended under the brow bone. This "ice princess" look is great for a party. 


Your best eyeshadow color is: Burgundy/berry

One to try: Sephora Colorful Mat Mono Eyeshadow in Mat. No. 7 (a matte deep burgundy), $10

Why: This color inspires depth, strength and love. It helps you move through times of transition. Wearing shades of burgundy increases your perception, persistence and drive.

How to wear it: "Use a matte burgundy for lining and defining eyes, or use a shimmery texture for a jewel-toned smoky eye -- sweep the color around a [black] lined and smudged eye," Karsten says.


Your best eyeshadow color is: Teal

One to try: Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Super Shimmer in Peacock, $14

Why: This color will enhance wisdom and optimism. Wear it while traveling or exploring. It promotes tolerance and understanding and is useful in dealing with others who have alternative points of view.

How to wear it: Deep teal makes for a great smoky eye. "Try it [blended] with a medium cinnamon or toasty brown swept in the creases to avoid too much drama," Karsten says.


Your best eyeshadow color is: Earthy brown

One to try: Prescriptives Colorscope Eye Color in Brownie, $14

Why: Logical and surefooted, this is a color of substance and determination. It helps you feel stable and responsible. Wearing it promotes practicality and aids you in manifesting your dreams.

How to wear it: Brown is a great neutral and can easily be worn on the lids for day or dressed up with a metallic gold shadow blended over top for night


Your best eyeshadow color is: Purple

One to try: CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Purple Pop, $2.99

Why: This color invokes the qualities of humanity and kindness. It helps you practice and understand detachment. Wearing shades of this color gives you a sense of community and enhances friendships.

How to wear it: Try doing a smoky eye in purple; it's unexpected and totally sexy. Check out an example in our runway trends gallery.


Your best eyeshadow color is: Sea foam green

One to try: Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow in Matte Pale Turquoise, $20

Why: This color helps guide people between the inner and outer world. It evokes qualities of trust and clarity and helps you see past the world of appearances. Wearing it will increase your faith and psychic abilities.

How to wear it: "Use [sea green] on lids with a soft, neutral skin-tone shade in your creases and a bold black liquid liner on top for a 'Rihanna' look," Karsten says.
