Last week, we looked at some lovely bridal styles for the first six zodiac signs…this week, we’ll check out beauty and fashion tips for Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, & Pisces. If you love fun, lighthearted horoscopes, you’ll enjoy learning more about your Sun Sign and how you can use it to look beautiful at your wedding.Libra – Your wedding day will be very important to you – for romantic Libra, having a partner is truly one of the most important things in life. Your style is refined, a little delicate, and generally quite feminine (at least for special occasions). For you, choosing the right bridal gown, bridal rings, and wedding accessories will be a pleasure – however, you can be indecisive – making a final choice can actually be very difficult for you. When selecting a white wedding dress, remember that you are the type of woman who seeks out elegance – Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady may be a fashion icon of yours (post-makeover by Henry Higgins, of course!). Seek out a little Hepburn-inspired beauty by choosing a stylish wedding gown that is embellished and adorned with a host of glamorous details. You’ll be less inclined to overdo with makeup – in general, Libra ladies have clear skin, regular features, and plenty of natural beauty. The colors of Saint Valentine are magical for you – use cherry-red or sweetheart-pink blush and lipstick to add a little vibrant color to your face. Libra women may get too creative with up-dos and artistic hairstyles – remember, sometimes simplicity really is more beautiful. Celeb Libras – Gwen Stefani, Sarah Ferguson (Fergie, ex-Duchess Of York)
Scorpio – Passionate, sexy Scorpio women run on desire and ambition – and they are generally very loyal people. For you, your wedding day will represent a deep tie with your partner – one that you treasure and respect. Looking beautiful on your wedding may be easier for you than for many other women – you have natural confidence and the sort of presence that can be quite regal. To make the most of your attributes at your wedding, consider adding a touch of burgundy or deep ruby red to your wedding outfit. A bouquet of rich, red roses, and a necklace featuring glittering garnets can be lovely choices for you. Rich reds and burgundies are your magic colors – they capture your essence beautifully, and they will work very well with a snow white wedding dress. You may not want to be the typical traditional bride – some Scorpio women are quite low-key, but others are very daring with regard to their wardrobes. Whether you want to experiment with ultra-modern styles, corseted bridal gowns, or tried-and-true, traditional wedding dresses and veils, you will ultimately want a wedding gown that feels like “you”. After all, you want to wear the dress – the dress shouldn’t wear you! Your hair doesn’t have to be very fancy – but do consider a style that isn’t too severe. Adding softness to your distinct features with a feminine hairstyle and the right makeup will work wonders for you. Treat yourself to a spa day before you marry – soak, steam, and polish in a luxe environment. Go for a pretty manicure in your magic color – OPI‘s Chick Flick Cherry will be perfect for you! Celeb Scorpios – Demi Moore, Katy Perry, Vivien Leigh (Gone With The Wind)
Sagittarius – Blunt, outgoing, sporty and free-spirited, you love to party with friends and family. For you, a wedding will be a spiritual celebration that is also filled with fun, music, dancing, and great food. You may want to avoid too much formality at your wedding – the breezy “destination wedding” was created with Sag in mind! Many Sag brides-to-be would rather get married on the beach, with their toes in the sand…the outdoors energize this Sun Sign. For Sag ladies, bridal gowns should be glamorous, but comfortable. Body-conscious styles will appeal to you – you’re not usually very shy, and you do like to show off your figure. Wearing your hair down will be a great choice at your wedding – Sag women look beautiful with loose waves or long, sleek blowouts. Be careful not to overdo your makeup – occasionally, a Sag bride-to-be will wear far too much makeup! In most cases, the Sag woman just doesn’t need a lot of paint anyway. A touch of bronzer, a glossy, warm pink lipstick, such as Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Lipstick in Pink Parfait, and a little mascara can be more than enough. Eating well and exercising before your wedding will ensure you look your best – exercise and moderation are of great benefit to your sign, which can be an excessive one. Celeb Sag Ladies – Christina Aguilera, Christina Applegate, Teri Hatcher.
Capricorn – You are an organized, capable lady – you believe in social decorum, even if you are sometimes a little more rebellious behind closed doors. For you, a wedding is an opportunity to value family traditions and rituals – your heritage will be also be celebrated as you walk down the aisle. Family is very important to you – you will want your loved ones to feel comfortable at your ceremony and reception – you’ll follow all of the “rules” to make this happen! Picking out a filmy, romantic veil, a subtle, sophisticated wedding dress, and all the right wedding accessories will be fun for you – after all, you are quietly very romantic. Many Cap women are blessed with lovely bone structure – they can be stunning brides who are beautiful in a way that is very timeless. Make the most of your lovely nose, cheekbones, lips and eyes, by pulling back your hair and putting the focus on your stunning face. Simple hair will look wonderful on you – makeup can be subtle – in fact, you prefer to be understated. Earth tones and dark shades are often popular with this Sun Sign – however, they will not work for your wedding. Embrace your femininity by choosing makeup that is natural, but still rosy and feminine – a little Benetint on your cheeks and lips, a touch of clear lip gloss, and perhaps a bit of black eyeliner and mascara on your top lashes only will give you classic beauty that is still festive. A slip dress with simple lines may be very appealing to you, but it should be conservative – you will not want to show too much skin on your wedding day. Celeb Capricorns – January Jones (Mad Men), Kate Moss, Christy Turlington
Aquarius – Innovative and analytical, you seek out new information, experiences, and ideas every day. Your bold approach to life can occasionally lead you down some unusual pathways! Aquarius women usually grow up feeling “different”, then begin to embrace their individuality as they get older. For you, being “yourself” is key – you will enjoy originality in wedding design, hairstyles, bridal rings, and makeup. However, the Sun is weak in your sign – your self-image may be a tad shaky now and then. For Aquarius brides-to-be, it’s important to find perfect wedding dresses and accessories – anything that boosts your confidence and makes you feel beautiful will be worth the investment. You’ll go for modern, high-fashion details, or else seek out a romantic princess look that is inspired by your dreams and ideals. Whatever you choose should include a headpiece, tiara, or veil that draws attention to your eyes – they will always be your best feature. In general, Aquarius women look best with their hair down and full – chances are, you already have a distinct hairstyle that is unique. Pure, bright colors will flatter you – add a touch of cobalt blue or violet to your makeup, bridal rings, necklace, earrings, and wedding bouquet. For a touch of modern glamor, add a line of long-wearing gel eyeliner to your top lashes – Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in Denim Blue will be perfect.
Pisces - The Pisces bride-to-be is totally feminine – she’ll look best in classic designs that work with an hourglass figure and soft, womanly features. Many Pisces women have lovely, jewel-like eyes, and they look wonderful in good jewelry that features shimmering gemstones. Bridal rings, earrings that catch the light, and glam pendants were made for this type of bride. For the Pisces woman, a wedding is a joining of two souls – she may be more interested in this deep commitment than in the details and planning phase of her wedding. However, she will always want to look beautiful on her big day. Lavender, soft violet, and sea-green are magical colors for the changeable, intuitive Pisces woman – nothing should be too bright or modern. This type of bride may want a bridal gown with vintage details – anything “old Hollywood” or fairytale-inspired will appeal to her. A lace dress may be very appealing for the Pisces bride – it will capture her feminine spirit perfectly. Earrings with aquamarines, pearls, or amethysts will draw attention to her eyes. Lips should be deep rose (try Clinique lipstick in Raspberry Glacé), or pale pink – eyes should be played up with smoky plum liner. Hair should be soft, and not too sculpted. Gentle tendrils, ringlets, or soft waves will look perfect. The Pisces bride should carry a bouquet of wildflowers… Celeb Pisces – Elizabeth Taylor, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna

Astrology is just for fun…whether or not you believe in the twelve zodiac signs is totally up to you. However, many women do enjoy checking their horoscopes and reading about the characteristics of each Sun Sign. If you love astrology and beauty tips, you’ll also love this quick guide to the best makeup, hairstyles, and wedding gowns for your sign. Today, we’ll focus on the first six signs of the zodiac. Stay tuned for the others next week!Aries
You’re the zodiac pioneer…you want to set trends and look fabulous while you’re doing it. Your fresh, bold approach to fashion can make you quite fearless. You like to take chances! For your wedding day, you should highlight your face with modern makeup that focuses on your eyes and lips. You’ve got strong features that become very glamorous with the right lipstick and eye makeup. Tone down any ruddiness in your complexion with a tinted moisturizer, then conceal imperfections. A light dusting of translucent powder should be enough to highlight your skin.
Red and white are your “magic colors” – use a strong red lip color (Lancome Mars is a wonderful red, with copper shimmer ) or bold ruby gloss on your wedding day. If you want a more subtle red, consider a lip stain. Eyes can be highlighted with a touch of silvery-white eyeshadow on the brow bone.
For your white wedding dress, look for modern details like one-shouldered styles, chic embroidery, or glossy, shiny fabrics. You may have the desire for a fairytale wedding – Aries is very romantic! Aries brides often choose wedding dresses with voluminous skirts to get the right effect.
Diamonds are your birthstone – treat yourself to bridal rings that feature this gorgeous stone – you’ll probably want a solitaire..the bigger, the better! Celeb Aries – Lady Gaga (imagine what her wedding gown would look like!)
You’re the Earth Mother of the zodiac. Capable, practical, and nurturing, you can also be quite single-minded and even stubborn. You should bring out the gentler, more feminine aspects of your personality and appearance on your wedding day. This can be achieved by choosing touches of baby pink or pale blue in your makeup, sash, bouquet, or bridal jewelry.
Natural fabrics will appeal to you – you may feel most comfortable in a simple and elegant slip dress made of real silk or satin. You hate anything fake! Your skin is probably quite lovely – many Taurus women have soft and smooth complexions. Use a touch of bronzer, such as Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess, to highlight your glowing skin. Natural makeup will be best for you – anything pinky-brown or soft pink will appeal to you.
Necklaces with rose quartz or other semi-precious stones can add a little bohemian beauty to your bridal gown. Your throat is one of your best features, so be sure to choose a special pendant for your big day. A filmy veil may seem romantic – however, many Taurus women choose to keep veils short and quite simple. Wearing your hair down and keeping accessories to a minimum will probably make you feel most comfortable. Celeb Taurus Bride – Jessica Alba
You are a chameleon – you’re fun, social, and always changing with the times. You’ll be the bride who wants to enjoy the latest trends as you marry. You may opt for touches of bright color in your wedding outfit – yellow and green are your magic colors, so perhaps a bouquet featuring these cheery tones could work for you. A sash in a vibrant hue will make you feel more fashionable as you marry.
You’ll love experimenting with different looks before your wedding – look for a well-stocked bridal boutique that offers plenty of options. Take friends along to help you decide. Your hands are always beautiful – compliment them with bridal rings that have a little artistic or sculptural flair. Schedule a manicure and treat yourself to a special nail color for your wedding. You also have pretty lips – Gemini is very kissable! Use a pretty gloss in a fun color like rich plum or berry to play up your mouth.
Many lovely Gemini women, such as actress Annette Bening, look wonderful with short hairstyles. If you’re one of them, you may want to skip a veil and just show off some fresh, stylish highlights. If you have long hair, experiment with high-fashion up-dos that aren’t too old-fashioned. Modern is the way to go for Gemini! Gemini bride-to-be Natalie Portman is sure to dazzle with a chic bridal gown and the coolest accessories.
You’re sweet and sentimental – tradition matters so much to the Cancer bride. You’ll want to wear something borrowed and something blue. You’ll also remember every moment of your romantic wedding day. For you, a traditional wedding gown will always be your first choice. Look for a bridal dress that is very feminine – a classic hourglass silhouette will highlight your chest and waist – and these are often the best features of a Cancer woman’s figure. A fuller skirt, perhaps with a crinoline, will look terrific on you.
You should consider a veil – you’ll love the romantic feeling it brings. For you, makeup should be in sun-kissed pastel tones that are subtle and appealing – gentle coral-pink lipstick, peachy blush (Rose Silk Cheekers blush by Covergirl is wonderful – and cheap!) and shimmery eye shadows in pale gold and cream will flatter. Pearls will make you glow – consider wearing a classic strand on your big day.
Don’t be too severe with your hair – your soft, childlike beauty is flattered by tousled waves or curls. Cancer brides may cry on the big day – your tears of joy will look much prettier if you remember to wear waterproof mascara! Famous Cancer Brides – the late Princess Diana
You’re a regal woman who is blessed with charisma and confidence. You have so many wonderful physical attributes, and you also have the personality to carry off the boldest wedding styles. For you, the challenge may to to tone down your dramatic tendencies when you choose a wedding gown and accessories. Many Leo women enjoy the “costume” element of a wedding – however, they often look best in sleek lines that show off their natural beauty.
Unless your hair is very dark, you should treat yourself to a few golden highlights before your wedding. A suntan will always make you feel more beautiful – whether it comes from Mother Nature, or from a tanning salon or self-tanner. Try not to go too far with tanning – keep it subtle to look more natural at your wedding.
Your gown should be dramatic, with high-fashion details you’re proud of. You will want quality and uniqueness – you don’t want to look like every other bride. Adding a touch of scarlet or golden yellow to your bouquet, bridal jewelry, or makeup will make you feel confident – gold and red are lucky colors for Leo. Lipstick possibility – Russian Red by MAC. Celebrity Leos – the late Jackie Kennedy, Madonna.
Humble and down-to-earth, you are also quite meticulous about details. Planning your wedding may be stressful, as you want to take care of everything yourself. Staying healthy and relaxed as your wedding day approaches is really the most important beauty tip I can give. Don’t be afraid to delegate some tasks to others – even if they won’t do them quite as well as you would.
Your beauty is quite refined – you will look best in sophisticated designs that are elegant and more subdued. You may not want to embrace the over-the-top princess look at your wedding – instead, you’ll want to look pulled-together, womanly, fresh, and immaculately groomed. Look for a gown with simple lines and just a touch of embellishment – you will want fine craftsmanship, and you’ll be willing to pay for the best if your budget allows it. You are interested in art and design – you’ll appreciate hand-beading and unique details, as long as they aren’t too flashy.
Even cheap wedding dresses can be fine choices if you examine seams, fabric, and quality carefully before you buy. Getting a deal is always a thrill for frugal Virgo! You should highlight your eyes when you do your makeup – a subtle eyeliner in soft brown or charcoal grey can add definition without being too harsh looking. Use blush to give your face a softer appearance – your lips will look best in neutral lipstick – Clinique Blushing Nude is very nice. Use a clear gloss to add shine.
Overall, subtlety and attention to detail will work best for you. Anything tacky or too frou-frou will make you unhappy. Your shiny, healthy hair will look glam in a sleek up-do – consider a chignon or half-up, half-down style. A French manicure will look clean and elegant – your bridal rings will be shown off to their best advantage. Virgo Bride – Faith Hill
