Your Weekend Beautyscope

What are you guys doing this weekend? Re-watching season four of Arrested Development for the second (or third) time? I know it’s tough to get pumped about anything else besides it – you know, being the weekend – right now, but read on for your Beautyscope: an extended weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) forecast with corresponding beauty predictions fit just for you. (And guess what? We’re giving away one lucky reader’s beauty product–to win, follow us on Twitter and let us know your plans for the weekend, along with the hashtag for your sign and #beautyscope!)


GEMINI (May 20 – June 21)

Your Forecast: Bust out a bottle of champagne and wiggle your booty, Gemini – because we’ve entered your sign! Isn’t it exciting? Now listen: You can party all you want, but you should also be cautious of not hurting any of your friends feelings today – because you know how your two-faced nature can turn towards the sour side when you’re feeling overly confident. But WHATEVER; it’s totally a good thing that you’re feeling more confident about yourself (*inserts GIF of Naomi Campbell flipping her hair*), but just remember to not let it get the best of you. This weekend is all about setting limits and testing them – in a responsible way, of course. But you need a good challenge. Really dig deep when handling situations this Sunday; like, it’s okay to call b*llshit on something if (and only if) you know that someone isn’t being truthful. This is especially poignant if you feel like traveling this weekend, because you may run into several obstacles that are only going to be solved by your natural intuition and inner-strength. But you totally got this, you witty little Air sign!

Your Product: O-b-v-i-o-u-s-l-y you need a product that celebrates your sign reigning supreme; and what could be better than a Limited Edition Gemini Zodiac Powder Compact by Estee Lauder? Like, seriously: WHAT COULD BE MORE PERFECT? Not only is it one of the most elegant compacts I’ve ever seen – each molded to the corresponding sign (yours is obviously twin heads!) – but it also comes with a corresponding birthstone (you get a Pink Crystal of course) where the clasp opens and closes. The powder is the perfect formula for setting makeup with minimal coverage by hiding any lines, blemishes, or whatever you don’t want to be seen. What are your best friends’ signs? Grab them one too!

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Your Forecast: You may be feeling freakishly emotional about romantic and family relationships you have today – and you have no idea how to properly let out your frustration because you’re, once again, bottling everything up. Breathe. Who do you talk to about things like this? Open up to that person, because you don’t want to explode over the weekend and ruin your mini-vacay over something like this. Also, Karma is totally your best friend (remember the Paris Hilton’s My New BFF reality show when she told the contestants “TTYN” when she eliminated them?) – anyway, Karma is on your side, because you built it up all on your own! You should be proud of that. If you’re second-guessing your career, job, etc. use this time to navigate a plan for yourself. And don’t forget to give a lot of attention to those you love on Sunday and let them shower you in love right back, because you definitely need that right now.

Your Product: Keep on loving yourself from the inside – and out, with a brand new foundation! Listen to me: the packaging, formula, and long-wear of the CK One Color 3-in-1 Face Makeup is bananas. Yes, it’s so good I just said the word bananas like I was Rachel Zoe or something.

LEO (July 22 – August 22)

Your Forecast: The song that accurately describes the way you’re feeling today is, without a doubt, Heaven or Las Vegas by Cocteau Twins. YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE ON CLOUD 9, GIRL. This is a blissful time for you, Leo. You’ve finally figured out the riddles to your problems that have been annoying you since the beginning of this year, and it feels good to have all that weight off your shoulders. You’re going to be in a pretty powerful leadership rule this weekend; so don’t be afraid to show your skills off to anyone around you. Taking charge is what you do best! Well – that, and being insanely loyal, of course. You might feel a sudden urge to escape on Sunday (like George Bluth a la Arrested Development), but you need to stay in touch with reality! I know it’s more fun hanging out in lala-land, but your sign has too much power this weekend to throw away.

Your Product: While you’re taking the weight off your shoulders, take it off your eyelashes as well! (Because there’s nothing worse than heavy or runny mascara in the summer, am I right?) I can’t stop raving about the Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara – which combats both of these problems – and adds an insane amount of height to your lashes. And the packaging is totally cute.

VIRGO (August 22 – September 22)

Your Forecast: You’re feeling exhausted today. But that’s ok: Because this weekend is your time! Reexamine your life during this time and map out what you want to do with it. Whether you’re talking a long walk, bike ride, or cruising through a local flea market: Reflect. A lot of obstacles have been thrown at you recently – and you’ve combated most of them with grace – but tie up any loose strings soon. Want some advice? Communication is key!

Your Product: Obviously you need a “my lipgloss is poppin’” moment! I’m totally addicted to the Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Trashed. But don’t get trashed this weekend…take it easy!

LIBRA (September 22 – October 23)

Your Forecast: Stop being so demanding! Not everyone can meet your standards – you know this – so relax. Seriously, relax – because love is in the air and you don’t want to potentially scare anyone off by being too abrasive. And if you’re with someone, they’re going to be ravishing you in gifts, presents, and compliments this weekend! Spend this weekend working on your favorite hobbies or activities, maybe even block Sunday off for some much needed alone time.

Your Product: Is one of your hobbies nail art? Yes? No? Well – consider this: Essie’s Sleek Stick in Love to Love You nail wraps are the bomb – and they have ones with love poems written on them in cursive! Perfect for all the love you’ll be receiving this weekend. Now go out and watch Before Midnight with your boo.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 22)

Your Forecast: Stop being so rude (cue: Kim Kardashian hitting Khloe with her purse and screaming “don’t be f*cking rude!”) But seriously – stop! Some unfortunate events might occur this weekend and the last thing you need to do is alienate everyone before you need them the most. Start by taking a different approach to things that normally bug you because your old tricks, frankly, are just not working. Some big travel or career news may be coming up soon, and you feel stuck about your decision – but this will work itself out soon enough. Use this weekend to practice “going with the flow” – because your normally don’t – and you need to start enforcing that.

Your Product: While you’re prepping for a new attitude on life, prep your skin with the best thing possible: primer! The COVER FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment is amaze-balls. It smoothes, mattifies, and protects skin from everything you put it through (stress breaks you out, you know!) – while leaving a flawless base for you to add on to.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Your Forecast: Don’t let that someone special in your life go! I know its tough playing “parent” to this person – but try reversing the roles and letting them take care of you for once. You keep thinking the world is going to fall and crumble around you if you don’t do something, but as much as you’d like to pretend like you’re Buffy Summers (from Buffy The Vampire Slayer – duh) saving the world from the apocalypse, know that it’s not! Your life isn’t taking any dramatic swerves right now, so spend your weekend not freaking out about everything. Try having an honest talk with your friends and cut out the drama from your life – because nobody wants to be the one with the knife in their back at the end of the day. And remember: minor dilemmas are just that – minor! Live a little, man.

Your Product: Cut out the too faced people in your life and replace them with a little love – in form of the Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush Candy Glow, of course. It’s shaped like a little heart, and comes with three shades of pink blush that you can mix to make your own custom shade.

CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 20)

Your Forecast: Your life is on the verge of so many different directions, but which way to go? Expect a lot of change coming today, and this weekend; but don’t be scared of any of it. You’ll follow in the path you were meant to take – even if you don’t know which way that is yet. Some of your friends may be taking full advantage of you, something you’re just realizing – and like, I’m sorry if this sounds harsh – but drop them for now. You need to stay focused on yourself and your (endless) life possibilities. Start setting boundaries for yourself, and sticking to them! This is very important right now. If you start getting cabin fever – go walk to Starbucks and get an iced coffee – or take a little stroll around your block.

Your Product: Empower your newfound self with a new fragrance! I can’t think of a better one than Empower by Pour Le Monde – with notes of spearmint, lemongrass and basil – you’ll be taking your “clean slate” to a whole new level. Even better? 10% of the net sale goes towards the Guiding Eyes for the Blind – to empower the blind, visually impaired and children with autism.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Your Forecast: It’s a wonderful day for you! You’ve finished all your work and now you want to explore: Go out! Start an art project this weekend – draw or write whatever is on your mind, or in your imagination. Problems may occur on Saturday – but fight back with your impressive charm. Keep mingling this weekend, but don’t waste your energy on something you know you’re not going to win.

Your Product: Bare it all with a Bare Minerals Ready 4.0 Eyeshadow Palette in The Soundtrack – an impressive quad of earth tones to get creative with.

PISCES (February 18 – March 20)

Your Forecast: People are paying a lot of attention to you today – and you like it. Things in your life are very pleasant, and although you’re not used to this kind of treatment – get used to it! So much good energy is centered towards you today, into this weekend, so take advantage of it all. You’ll experience some new feelings this weekend – maybe déjà vu, or love? But don’t get a laugh out of it – you never know what could happen. Treat yourself with something you’ve been wanting for a while (you totally deserve it, girl!) and pick something else up for your bestie too. Make family a huge priority on Sunday, visit a relative or make some phone calls to catch up.

Your Product: Treat yourself with a Pierre Hardy for NARS Nail Polish Pairs in Ethno Run – and then pick up the Sharks set for your BFF!

ARIES (March 20 – April 19)

Your Forecast: You need to heal yourself today. So many awful people have been taking advantage of you lately – and enough is enough (like the JLO movie Enough – kind of). Stick up for yourself! Don’t let people think you’re a human doormat and can just walk all over you – ew. You’re better than that – way better than that. Use your weekend to stay home and save your money, honey. You may need to switch up jobs, or a get a part time job, to deal with any money or financial problems you may be having. But this is good: keep yourself busy and away from anyone who’s trying to keep you down.

Your Product: While you’re sticking up for yourself by sticking it to the man – get yourself a new stick of eyeliner! And don’t just go for the same shade of, um – black. Experiement a little! I can’t tell you how gorgeous, and totally wearable, the Covergirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Green Glow is. It’s a metallic neon green – but works on all different colored eyes – and I promise: you won’t look crazy!

TAURUS (April 19 – May 20)

Your Forecast: Be a team player today! And you’ll realize that the people you surround yourself with at work are actually way cooler than you originally thought. Judging a person is just part of your personality, but sometimes it’s nice to let go of that and give people a chance. You may have been hitting some low points lately, but this will all change when you open your heart up a little bit. Keep eating healthy – and if you haven’t been – start this weekend!

Your Product: While you’re being a team player at work – be a team player with your lipstick anthology too! Stop wearing the same ‘ol color you always glide on, and switch it up! MAC Candy Yum Yum, a new addition to the brands permanent collection, is just what you need: a matte neon pink, that stays in place all day, and will surely get you a ton of compliments from co-workers and strangers.
