Let the stars inspire your lip color palette.

If loving lipstick is wrong, then I don't want to be right. The fun thing about lipstick, and makeup in general, is that we can change up our looks at a moment's notice. From natural and dewy to playful and vampy, I enjoy experimenting with any lip shade under the sun.

So if you're looking for more color inspo, why not turn to the stars for some ideas? Check out your zodiac sign to find your power color.

Aries (March 19 - April 19): Mauve

Tarte Cosmetics

Well, hello Aries! You're brazen and fearless, and I admire that in you. So why not go for a creamy lip that matches your personality? Nothing says running the world like mauve, whether it's in the boardroom, the bedroom, or Westeros. You're a calm and collected sign, but oh-so-sure of yourself, too! Try out Tarte's "tbt" creamy matte lip paint for a real badass babe look.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Lilac


Every time I picture you, Taurus, I think of lush blooms and greenery. You might be one of the most stable signs in the zodiac and your appreciation for the sensual and the powerful is overwhelming. I keep thinking of nature because it is extremely sensual and powerful. So, wear your heart on your sleeve, uh... I mean, lips. Pick a pretty petal inspired color like Kat Von D's "iridescent lilac" and enthrall us all.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Fuschia


You're so feisty and airy, dear Gemini! A mega sign like yours needs a versatile lipstick think of a hue that gets you party-ready at a moment's notice. Since you're such a social, affectionate, and vibrant sign, it's no surprise that I was drawn to Amuse Bouche's fuschia lip color for you. It's bold but subdued, flirty but coy, and best of all, totally you.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Purple


Cancer, you're anything but boring. You're a very emotional and creative sign, so you need beauty products that are going to make you feel like your best self. With so much imagination buzzing around you, you should opt for a cheeky purple shade. It's artsy, edgy, and off-the-cuff. Not to mention, it's certainly a conversation starter for parties and rock shows you attend. Test out my fave picks from Makeup Forever and Smashbox.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Red


Oh, Leo. Yes, you are certainly the queen of the kingdom. And what a warm, passionate and generous sign you are! It's no shock that I'd go straight to a true red for you. This color is jam-packed with power, sexiness, and fun  just like you. Go for MAC's "Ruby Woo" if you're feeling classic, but Kat Von D's "Tijuana" will also make you sparkle even more.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Nude



Hi, Virgo babe. While you're a practical vixen and you know when and where to let your hair down, you're also sensible and loyal, which means you're solid through and through. And your lipstick should be just as loyal and beautiful. A true nude tone will make you glow, like NARS "Pigalle" (my fave!). Not to mention, it will give you a mega gorgeous 1990s pout. How gorgeous are you?

Libra (September 23 - October 22): Blush Pink


Libra, you sweet little thing. You're always ready to make your loved ones feel right at home. With such happy and chill vibes surrounding you, it's certain that you need a stunning but light lip to compliment your nature. A cheerful blush shade like Chanel's "Mademoiselle" will keep your pout pretty all day long. You'll still be your laid-back self, but just a little sweeter. Take it up a notch at night with a liquid matte shade like Colorpop's "Solow."

Scorpio (October 23 - November 22): Copper


Scorpio, you're a ball of fire, but you're the best kind there is. You're so full of spark and passion, and you need your makeup to pack a real punch. And with you, it's not just about full on pigment shades  you need sparkle, and LOTS of it. You're my kinda gal! So darling, get yourself right in Kat Von D's "Thin Lizzy" and woo the universe like you do.

Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21): Burgundy


Sag, you're totally cool and energetic. That's why people are so drawn to you you're a storyteller with a great sense of humor. Of course, with stellar qualities like these, you need a lipstick that's going to deliver and be as cool as you. NYX's "Siren" shade of burgundy is going to keep up with you and make your lips look ah-mazing. See for yourself.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Rose Gold


You're majorly driven, dear Capricorn! And there's something about you that's sassy AF, and I love it. You know how to plan and achieve your goals, so kick back and relax once you've won the gold medal. In this case, it's all about rosegold in the winner's circle. Go back to shaking things up in this shade by trying MAC's "Viva Glam."

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Pale Pink

Charlotte Tilbury

You know how to roll with the waves. Changing like the tides is your thing and you do it well. While you're such a calm person, there's a part of me that wants you to rock a light blue. You do you if that's what your heart desires. However, pale, pale pink like Charlotte Tilbury's "K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Bitch Perfect" will really set the tone for your low key and flexible personality. The forces reckon with you, darling.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Light Brown

NYX Cosmetics

You've got some major psychic vibes! With such an intuitive personality and artistic sensibilities, you've got a lot going on. You're quick to see the past, present and future before you, and surround yourself with like-minded peeps. While you might be made of stars, there's something calling you back down to earth. A light brown, like "Lip Lingerie" and a good cup of coffee, is what you need.
