Beauty For Your Sign: Virgo (August 23-September 22)

You already read your daily horoscope on DearSugar, right? Well, I've got a little astrology treat for you here on BellaSugar, too. Welcome to another installment of a 12-part series about beauty for your zodiac sign. I'll profile each sign as it comes, giving hair and makeup tips to bring out your best look. Last time, I gave suggestions for Leo ladies, and this time it's all about Virgos. If your birthday is far away, don't worry—together we'll circle the entire zodiac together over the next year.

You can often recognize a Virgo by an innocent-looking baby face, or by a helpful and sweet disposition. They're mainly known for being detail-oriented, which works both for and against them. On the plus side, they have skill and patience—which explains why Virgo Salma Hayek's looks flawless even when she's going for a low-key look. On the negative side, a perfectionist streak makes some Virgos too critical, focusing on "flaws" that nobody else notices. (You know your friend who's always freaking out about the "huge zit" that you can't even see? Ask her if she's a Virgo.)

To find out which colors and cuts work for Virgos (and which don't), plus a shopping list of lovely Virgo-appropriate finds,

What works if you're a Virgo Virgo is an earth sign, which means you look great in neutral colors that bring out your natural beauty. But don't go so natural that you look plain. If you choose a barely-there eye look, balance it with a bold lip (or vice versa). With hair, you can look glamorous by amplifying what you've got. Look at Beyonce, for instance: When she lets her curls out, she's stunning whether she's in a designer gown or jeans and a tee.

What doesn't work Brash, out-there, "look at me!" makeup and hair. Additionally, it's important to know what's age-appropriate. Watch out for certain trends that could be too juvenile, and you should be fine.

This sounds so much like me! I hardly ever wear makeup (even though I love it and own a boat load). Except my friend is also a Virgo and she opts for the glitter eyeliner look. To each her own?

There are some really stylish and naturally beautiful, and very sexy Virgos, like me, and all the rest of you ladies I'm sure. Stella McCartney is a Virgo. Nicole Richie too.

I'm a virgo too! Haha, in Norway where I'm from they actually say that you are are born in the sign of the VIRGIN! Can be quite embarrasing in the early teens. Like a virgin, hey?

Dude Bella you nailed it right on when you said: You know your friend who's always freaking out about the "huge zit" that you can't even see? Yes, I am a virgo and yes I freak out about huge non-existent zits all time. Ask my mom, ask my sister.

It takes a Virgo to know this, and Gwen Stefani is no Virgo! Cameron Diaz, Beyonce, Salma Hayek, Jada Pinkett, Claudia Schiffer....those are some Vir-girls right there.

True, Gwen Stefani is a Libra. If you're looking for more Virgos to use -->Salma Hayek (September 2, 1966), Beyonce (September 4, 1981) and Fiona Apple (September 13, 1977) are Virgos.

HELLO Bella Sugar, but Gwen Stefani is NOT a Virgo. She was born October 3rd, 1969. You could definitely keep her in mind for next month's Libra post. Maybe use Cameron Diaz, she was born August 30th, 1972, which just happens to be my birthday too :).
