Which Beauty Staple Should You Own Based On Your Sign? | Clozette

Your beauty stash says a lot about your personality and lifestyle. Whether it's your obsession with lippies or eyeshadow palettes or both, one can definitely say a thing or two about the things that make you tick just by looking at your choice of shades and products. And if you're Zodiac lover, then you most likely you take pride in showing off that mood and aura that's uniquely 'you'.

So to make sure you always get that Zodiac-approved look that oozes with personality and spunk, here are the beauty staples chosen by your guiding stars!

--------------------------

Aries (March 21 - April 19)


Fiery and bold, an Aries girl is a standout just on her own. A little intimidating but still retains a compelling charm, instead of going for bright red lips, a wine red lippie is definitely your must-have. It complements your fired-up personality but still gives a muted and mysterious vibe that balances your overwhelming aura.
--------------------------

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)


Grounded and very practical, Taurians tend to fall in love with every nude eyeshadow palette they come across with. They love having a signature look that's easy to create but still make a statement and these babies do the job perfectly. Plus, this beauty pick fits their on-the-go, no-fuss lifestyle because the basic shades are more than enough to mix and match for every mood, look, and occasion. 


--------------------------

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)


Geminis are naturally gentle and shy. But they are also full of potential and creativity that shines the most when they are doing something they are passionate about. So to make sure they have the spotlight when they get that burst of inspiration, a rose gold highlighter should always be at the top of their beauty stash.


--------------------------

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)


Some say that Cancers are one of the most difficult of the signs to get to know because they are deeply intuitive and emotional. But to the lucky ones who get to be in their inner circle, these gals have a mysterious charm that can simply light up the room with their gentle presence. So to match their soft yet mystical personalities, an ethereal-looking blue eyeshadow is a perfect match to define their style. 


--------------------------

Leo (July 23 - August 22)



A sign that's ruled by none other than the sun, Leos are highly optimistic, passionate, and warm-hearted. Their love of life is contagious to those around them, making them the highlight of every gathering. So if you're a certified Leo, make sure you have a red metallic eyeliner in your beauty arsenal to match your lively and ever-memorable personality!


--------------------------

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)



Ruled by Mercury, this sign has two outstanding traits that can be contrasting, but somehow, they make it work so well. Their extreme creativity mixed with their high regard for logic can be confusing to some, but Virgos use this to their advantage by being the trailblazers that they are. Always forward-thinking when it comes to their ideals but are very laidback when considering their lifestyle choices, a classic black liquid liner is their beauty staple. Definitely a must-have whether they feel like going bold and experimental or simple and chic!


--------------------------

Libra (September 23 - October 22)



With the scales as their guiding symbol, it's no wonder why Libras are fascinated with balance and peace. They are one of the most level-headed of the signs, exuding elegance and poise wherever they go. So to frame their ever-so-cool expression and to give highlight to their beautifully keen eyes, their go-to beauty product is their trusty brow kit.


--------------------------

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)


There are no better examples of badassery than Scorpios. Reliable, passionate, and charismatic, these Pluto-guided girls take the breath away of everyone they meet with their warm personalities. They always take the lead when it comes to initiatives that will spark good change, whether it be in their careers or their personal lives, they do every task with such ease. To show off their 'ready for anything' attitude, a smokey eye palette is one of their ol' reliables when it comes to MOTDs.


--------------------------

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)



With Jupiter as their ruling planet, girls born under this sign are independent, strong-willed, and have a deep appreciation for the avant garde. They find beauty in all things 'different' and they love it when they are given freedom to mix and match a look that they feel like sporting for the day. So our product pick for you lovely Sagittariuses? A handful of multi-sticks that's perfect if you're in the mood for a mid-day makeover.


--------------------------

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)



Sensible and chic, Capricorns are natural-born leaders who love to keep things simple yet interesting. So to match their minimalistic but intriguing personality, a nude lippie with pink undertones is definitely their beauty stash staple!


--------------------------

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)


There's something about the eccentric personality of an Aquarian that people find incredibly charming. They have a certain energy that they love pouring into causes they feel deeply attached to, making them very inspiring to be around with. Similar to the shade of their ruling planet Uranus, a turquoise eyeliner perfectly embodies their uniqueness and individuality.


--------------------------

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)


People born under this sign are the most attached to their creative and artistic side. They love everything dramatic and theatrical because it's how they shine and that's where they find their true purpose. Their charm and charisma pulls people to also reach for their own potential, making an ethereal and unconventional eyeshadow palette the perfect beauty must-have for their captivating persona.

Too busy for a facial? You don’t have to be. Skin Inc’s latest facial treatments will bring your skin back to life in a flash -- perfect for the time-pressed ladies who struggle with finding time for some self-lovin’.


If you have just 20 to 30 minutes to spare, consider heading down to the Skin Inc Facial In A Flash Skin Bar. Located at Skin Inc’s swanky new concept lifestyle store that sits in Scotts Square -- a considerably undisturbed establishment in the bustling Orchard Road -- this bar is your quick stop for a skin refresher. They may not be serving up cocktails any time soon, but at least you get a skin-boosting concoction for a complexion that glows.


Skin Inc at Scotts Square, Singapore

The Facial In A Flash Skin Bar offers two treatments: the Facial In A Flash (20 minutes for SGD45) and Facial In A Flash+ (30 minutes for SGD65). The 20-minute Facial In A Flash treatment offers Skin Inc’s iconic customised 3-step program, followed by the highly raved Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light treatment. The 30-minute Facial In A Flash+ treatment features the same offerings, enhanced with a Pure Serum-Mist onsen water infusion and a relaxing shoulder massage. All in all, you get to indulge in the benefits of a customised facial treatment Skin Inc is famously known for before you scurry off to your next appointment of the day.

-------------------------- 



Reviewing the Skin Inc Facial In A Flash+ Treatment

So, who better than our Creative Director and busy mom of three, Kersie (@GlamMama), to help us review Skin Inc’s Facial In A Flash+ Treatment? Below, the lowdown.

Current skin type: Dry

Skin concern: Fine Lines, Dullness, Stressed Skin

Recommended serum concoction: Collagen, Chlorella, French Pine Bark


The Process

Stepping into the bright and clean Skin Inc’s newest store at Scotts Square was a very welcoming experience. We began the treatment by decoding my skin identity before I was “prescribed” my very own serum cocktail: a blend of Collagen, Chlorella and French Pine Bark to restore, revitalise and repair my skin.


-------------------------- 



Decoding skin identity; Skin Inc customised serum cocktail

The cleansing and removal of makeup was obviously a must, but I was glad that they left my eye & brow makeup untouched so I could still continue on my day without having to redo my eyeliner. Seeing as I was seated at the Skin Bar in the store, arranging and tucking my hair neatly before the treatment was a nice bonus.



-------------------------- 



Pure Revival Peel step

After cleansing came the Pure Revival Peel, an exfoliant that helps polish away grimes and dead skin cells, followed by the Pure Serum Mist infusion, which felt cooling and very, very relaxing. A generous layer of Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask was then slathered on my skin before the Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light treatment, where the therapist strategically positioned the red and blue lights around my facial contours to repair and calm my skin respectively.


-------------------------- 


The Afterthought

I'm generally sensitive to strong scents, so I'm glad the overall treatment was mildly scented. My face definitely looked brighter and felt tighter after the treatment, so much so that I could still feel the effects the day after. Although it was an express facial, I still felt pampered and relaxed that I only wished the seat had a headrest so I could doze off in peace. I forgot to bring my foundation out that day, so I was happy that my therapist ended off the treatment with tinted sunscreen.


-------------------------- 




Juggling between a busy work schedule during the weekdays and family bonding time during the weekends can be a feat, so I really enjoyed the quick facial pit stop. Now, instead of stopping for more caffeine in-between meetings, I can get my quick facial fix for the month!
