What Lip Color You Should Rock This Weekend, Based On Your Sign

When it comes to picking out nail polish colors, we often don’t think twice about branching out of our comfort zone with a daring new shade. However, it’s safe to say that lip color is a whole different game. If you’re having trouble deciding which lip color you should rock when you’re headed out this weekend, look no further than the stars for inspiration.

Red: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Some things just never go out of style. While red may not be the most unusual lip color out there, it hands-down remains the most daring and intense, which is fitting for the fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Not only does red lipstick supply you with an extra boost of confidence, but it shows you’re not afraid to take action. Hesitant to make a move on that guy you’ve been crushing on for weeks? Nervous to be the first one on the dance floor? This fiery shade—Fearless by ELF ($1, eyeslipsface.com)—should do the trick. 

If you have a paler skin tone and are worried about pulling off a color so dark and bold, look no further than Taylor Swift herself, who has made deep red lipstick a staple in her makeup routine. 

Nude: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

For Earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, less is always more. Even when you’re going out and dressing up, you still like to keep things simple. Nude lip shades are your go-to because they’re natural-looking, practical and can be paired with a variety of outfits and styles. Whether you’re hitting the bars this weekend or watching Netflix with your SO, you know you’ll be able to pull off this look night after night. Since everyone’s skin tone is different, it’s important to try out a few nude shades before settling on the one that’s best for you. KISSING by Charlotte Tilbury ($34, charlottetilbury.com) is a good place to start. 

If you're not a fan of wearing lipstick in general, nude shades can be a great gateway to bolder looks. Since they're so natural-looking, you won't have to worry about standing out too much while you're still learning and experimenting with what shade is best for you. Similar to buying concealer and foundation, look for the color that most closely matches your skin tone and go from there.

Peach: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Air signs are known for being thoughtful, social and inspiring, so it’s not surprising that they’re always up to date on the latest fashion and beauty trends. If you’re a Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius looking to make a statement, look no further than this shade: peach. This fun and playful shade will have you turning heads in no time. Bronzed Peach by Covergirl ($5.99, CVS) sets the standard.  

If you’re looking to take your trendsetting one step further, you could take a chance on another bold color: orange. If you’re nervous about trying a color outside of your comfort zone, start with Orange Blossom by Macaron Lippie ($5.99, Ulta). If you try it and decide you're not ready for the color, it won't break your bank, either. 

Plum: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces have earned reputations for being the deepest thinkers and the biggest dreamers, so they need an equally deep and daring color to match. While dark purple lipstick may seem hard to pull off at first, it can become a game-changing look when you figure out what shade is best for you—some may seem more red-tinted, while others even look brown or blue-ish. Use your creative thinking, open mind, and don’t be afraid to take a few shades for a test run before a big night out. Try this deep plum shade, Venom from Urban Decay ($18, Urban Decay).

When it comes to lipstick, it’s easy to get stuck in the habit of wearing your same old, go-to shade. However, with summer on the horizon, there’s no better time to try out a new look. Use your new-found astrological inspiration to make a statement when you go out this weekend. Keep on slaying!
