ARIES (Mar. 21- April 20)
Aries, as the first and fieriest sign of the Zodiac, prefers to set the trends, not follow them. If you're an Aries, depending on your generation, you were probably the first to iron your hair straight or wear glitter on your cheeks or even get that crazy Brazilian bikini wax. You like perfumes with florid, heady undertones, and you should call attention to your piercing eyes with bold shadow choices and well-groomed brows.
TAURUS (Apr. 21 - May 21)
Taurus, with your steady gaze and flawless complexion, should grow out your natural curls rather than force them straight, or keep your nails trimmed short if you just know long and sexy won't work for you. You adore the small, sensual pleasures of beauty -- sensual fabrics, natural, revitalizing skin creams and perfume with a woodsy, balsamic scent. You prefer your hair flowing naturally over your shoulder or a loose tendril falling across your forehead. It's through these tiny but generous gestures of understated femininity that you as a Taurus assert your beauty.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)
As a Gemini, you may get that tired, old split-personality tag -- but you're not internally conflicted, Gemini, you're just restless and very often brilliant! This Mutable Air Sign, blessed with all the wit and charm you could need to make it through life on guile alone, does not much interest itself with the day-to-day trappings of a beauty routine. It's your stimulating mind, your expressive hands and that ever-talkative mouth of yours that garner all of the affectionate attention -- people can't help but look at your lovely hands as you gesticulate and make yet another insightful comment. Even though you may chew your nails down to the quick in one of your frequent fits of nervous energy, you keep any flaws hidden well with vibrant nail colors and frequent manicures.
CANCER (June 22 - July 22)
As a Cancer, a Cardinal Water Sign, you love to care for the downtrodden and very often your own needs are overlooked. Your beauty routine, then, is likely minimal -- if anything.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22)
As a Leo, you are confidence in a beautiful bottle, self-assuredness in sleek, concentrated form. And it is glorious -- your hair, that is. Just like the Lion that symbolizes your sign, your mane is your crowning achievement, so to speak, and you let it speak for you when you don't know what else to say. Moving down from there, the world sees your eyes, large and full of life and energy -- and further down from that, the world probably sees your sexy shoulders, another area of Leo pride.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)

Lily-tinged scents keep you in a romantic mood.
