Your Star Sign-Lipstick Match Revealed
For those of us who are devoted horoscope-readers, some things are best left to the stars. The idea of letting fate intervene feels wonderfully liberating, free from making decisions and choices and leaving it to the gods of the universe.
We here at Beauty Tribe, avid zodiac fans ourselves, think that the same practice can be applied to lipstick. If we counted the number of times we couldn’t decide which lipstick to wear, well…that’s one more than the whole zodiac calendar.
So we’re putting it in the hands of the stars - read on for the perfect lipstick match to your personality according to your star sign.
