Air sign Gemini is famously symbolised as twins, or two faces, and people born from 21 March to 19 April have been saddled with a reputation for being indecisive and/or quick to switch between moods. There are loads of positives too, though. Geminis are known for being chatty, witty and insatiably curious, developing loads of interests and hobbies in the process.
That’s why this Gemini-inspired makeup look has been designed to cover the many different scenarios that busy women may find themselves in during a day.
Your foundation isn’t the focal point of this look, but you want a base that is comfortable to wear, long-lasting and offers medium to full coverage. Available in loads of shades to help you find your perfect match, Maybelline Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation should be high on your list thanks to its mattifying and pore-minimising properties which allow you to enjoy a shine-free, seamless finish no matter how much you’re running around.
Daytime makeup tends to be on the demure, natural-looking side, which is especially true when it comes to your eye makeup. A classic approach is to line your eyes and go light on the mascara. However, if you keep those reliable products – say, NYX Professional Makeup Slim Eye Pencil in Black Shimmer, and water-resistant NYX Professional Makeup The Skinny Mascara – in your handbag, it’s easy to transform a practical office look into a striking evening style with little reapplication. Add a couple of extra coats of mascara to your lashes to either thicken your upper lash line or extend it into a wing. A further option is to pair your eyeliner in black with a stroke of its bright shinier sister, like NYX Professional Makeup Slim Eye Pencil in Sky Shimmer.
As for lips, it’s once again a case of having a few shades in your bag to keep you covered no matter the situation. L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Obsession Lipstick in Mahogany Studs is a natural-looking hue that comes with the added benefit of all-day comfort and hydration. Need to glam it up a bit? Switch to the head-turning L’Oréal Paris Matte Obsession Lipstick in Paris Cherry.
Ultimately, for Geminis, there’s no better makeup look than one where you don’t have to decide. Make “Why not both?” your mantra when it comes to cosmetics and hairstyles just like you do with everything else.
