Are you the type to hit the horoscope section of the magazine before you read anything else? Then you'll love our roundup of zodiac-inspired beauty recommendations. There are certain colors and scents that every sign gravitates toward. Excitement-loving Leos go for fiery orange tones, for instance, but Capricorns prefer earthy notes from woodland environments. Even though the zodiac year starts in March with Aries, let's think in terms of the Gregorian calendar, beginning with Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Find which beauty products complement your nature, along with the like-minded celebrities who fall into the same sign as you.
As the 10th sign of the zodiac, Capricorns are realistic and down-to-earth. Business-minded, hardworking, and goal-oriented, goats will work their little tails off to get to the top. Beware, though. This kind of drive can easily lead to materialism and greed, although Capricorns always seem to know how to keep themselves in check. They're also considered one of the most patient signs of the zodiac and are practical in just about everything they do. Famous Capricorns include Kate Middleton, Zooey Deschanel, Mary J. Blige, January Jones, Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Amanda Peet, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Kate Bosworth.
To bring our your inner Capricorn beauty: Pick colors that are as earthly and grounded as you are, like deep browns and dark greens. A power girl like you needs a signature look, so steer clear of anything that's overly trendy or outrageous. Your style is more streamlined and classic. A sleek bun paired with a low-sheen lipstick shade will complement your go-getter personality. To learn more about the Capricorn-centric items pictured above, keep reading.
The ninth sign of the zodiac, Sagittarians are known as seekers of both truth and adventure. Thirsty for knowledge, Sagittarians are confident and outgoing. Sometimes, though, their gregarious ways can get them into trouble, to the point where they overstep their boundaries. They typically do, however, take the time to think things through, enabling them to look at the bigger picture ahead. Famous Sagittarians include Katie Holmes, Lucy Liu, Taylor Swift, Tyra Banks, Amanda Seyfried, Katherine Heigl, Julianne Moore, Christina Aguilera, Christina Applegate, Scarlett Johansson, Miley Cyrus, and Britney Spears.
To bring out your inner Sagittarian beauty: Deck yourself out in purple or royal-blue shades, which are perfect complements to your bright and bold personality. Keep travel-sized items in your bag, since you're always up for a journey. And don't be afraid to mix and match unexpected colors and textures; you're a fun-loving gal, after all. Just be sure not to take it to extremes to avoid looking too eccentric. To learn more about the Sagittarian-centric items pictured above, keep reading.
The eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpios are excellent investigators who possess a heightened sense of intuition. And thanks to their curious ways, they're often fearless, competitive souls.

Famous Scorpions include Katy Perry, Julia Roberts, Winona Ryder, Emma Stone, Demi Moore, Chloë Sevigny, Anne Hathaway, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Thandie Newton, and Kelly Osbourne.

Those born under the seventh sign of the zodiac (aka Libras) are some of the most popular people around. This is mainly due to their characteristically charming, adaptable, and sociable nature. At their worst, however, they can be indecisive, gullible, and even self-indulgent. But not to worry: a Libra's poised, easygoing personality almost always wins others over. Famous Libras include Ashanti, Hilary Duff, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Alicia Silverstone, Christina Milian, Ashlee Simpson, Gwen Stefani, and Serena Williams.
To bring out your inner Libra beauty: Try a perfect-for-you blue or rose-colored makeup palette. Green is also a great option, as it symbolizes your vitality and sense of order. And while you have a love for the finer things in life, like perfumes and luxe brands (à la Gwyneth), you've also been known to try out edgier looks, ranging from studded hair accessories to ultrablack eyeliner (as common with Gwen). You are, after all, known for your balanced approach to life. To learn more about the Libra-centric items pictured above, just keep reading.
Virgos are perfectionists, which can be both good and bad. On the one end they are devoted, resourceful, and analytical, but when times are tough, they can become overwhelmed by the details. Those born under this sixth sign of the zodiac, however, are some of the most loving, faithful, and charitable types around. Besides, how can you resist this characteristically baby-faced bunch? Famous Virgos include Beyoncé Knowles, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Hudson, Rachel Bilson, Lea Michele, Cameron Diaz, Nicole Richie, Pink, Macy Gray, and Amy Poehler.
To bring out your inner Virgo beauty: Focus on earthy-toned colors; Virgos are Earth signs, after all. Think: beiges, greens, tans, and browns — but don't go too blah. Add a pop of color to personalize your style, just like Beyoncé and Cameron often do. Blue is also a great shade to turn to as it lends a cool, refined feel to an already-cool, refined personality.

Just like their symbol, the lion, Leos are known to be protective, loyal, and courageous. But on a bad day, watch out. Those born under this fifth sign of the zodiac can roar with arrogance and jealousy. They are fire signs, after all. You'll love them for their magnetic, charismatic personalities, though, as these are the traits that make Leos natural-born leaders and entertainers. Famous Leos include Charlize Theron, Madonna, Halle Berry, Hilary Swank, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Beckinsale, Sandra Bullock, Vivica A. Fox, Amy Adams, Rose Byrne, Coco Chanel, Viola Davis, Iman, Mila Kunis, and Jennifer Lawrence.
To bring out your inner Leo beauty: Bold, bright tones (like orange, gold, and yellow) match your dynamic disposition.

Patient, caring, and resourceful, Cancers are some of the most loyal people around. Known for their intuitive, nurturing spirits, those born under this fourth sign of the zodiac often thrive in creative environments. At their worst, however, Cancers can get moody and overly sensitive, isolating themselves from others. This bunch has a tough outer shell, just like a crab, the sign's symbol. Famous Cancers include Liv Tyler, Missy Elliott, Kristen Bell, Gisele Bundchen, M.I.A., Olivia Munn, Minka Kelly, Jessica Simpson, Selena Gomez, and Selma Blair.
To bring out your inner Cancer beauty: Whites and silvers are your colors, so be sure to add splashes of these shades into your beauty routine.

Gemini isn't just one of the funnest roller coasters ever (Cedar Point for the win), but it also happens to be the third sign of the zodiac. Personality-wise, Geminis are known for their sharp wit and curious natures. And seeing that they're the sign of the twins, Geminis are therefore known for being dual-natured and complex. Think versatility and the ability to change direction to adapt to a wide array of situations. At their worst, Geminis are tense and moody, and at their best, they're lively and charismatic. Famous Geminis include: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (naturally), Angelina Jolie, Venus Williams, Zoe Saldana, Courteney Cox, Heidi Klum, Natalie Portman, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Carey Mulligan.
To bring out your inner Gemini beauty: Deck yourself out in colors that are just as bold and bright as you, such as orange and yellow. Your focus area is your hands and arms, so try a fun polish or an oversized perfume ring as an accent. And don't be afraid to create a few paradoxes, pairing the bold with the tame and the muted with the vibrant. To find out more about the Gemini-themed products above, just keep reading.
If you're a Taurus, you can be described as patient, decisive, and reliable. And while you're likely a lover of luxury, your practicality ensures you won't take your need for quality goods to levels of excess. When times are tough, you may be considered temperamental and resentful, but your warm-hearted nature makes up for it in the long run. Famous Taureans include: Janet Jackson, Rosario Dawson, Penelope Cruz, Kirsten Dunst, Jessica Alba, Tina Fey, Malin Akerman, Adele, and Cate Blanchett.
To bring out your inner Taures beauty: Think green. As an earth sign, greenish tones (your color) appeal to you, while bright, bold tones tend to take a back seat. The throat and neck are your focus body parts, so be sure to spritz on perfume and try hairstyles (such as updos) to bring attention to the area.
