Beauty for Your Sign: Scorpio (Oct 23–Nov 21)

Another month, another set of birthdays in Beauty For Your Sign! This time around, it's Scorpio, which some say is the sexiest sign of the zodiac. (Not a Scorpio? Hold tight, as we'll go through each sign as it comes up.)

Magnetic and mysterious, Scorpios have the ability to attract people, and more than a few of them have a little bad-girl or bad-boy action going on. (Think of Buffy's former beau Angel, for instance. Total Scorpio.) Scorpios are adept at finding out what's going on beneath the surface, so while they can figure other people out, they can be enigmatic themselves. A sign of quiet power, Scorpios are often drawn to unusual ways of looking at the world. For example, Scorpio actresses Maggie Gyllenhaal and Chloe Sevigny have both been rewarded by taking some out-of-the-mainstream roles.

For hair and makeup suggestions for Scorpio,

What works if you're a Scorpio: Intense, detail-oriented makeup and precision haircuts. Your sign was practically made for the smoky eye look, so play up your peepers with a bit of black eyeliner. Try a dark manicure, which is one of fall's biggest trends. For a daytime look, go for a simple—but not too sweet—take on the clean, well-groomed look. Think of Scorpio Julia Roberts, whose hair looks enviably even when she runs out to CVS in sweats. Finally, if there's any sign that gets a thrill from Brazilian waxes, it's Scorpio—the sign that's linked with the reproductive organs and all things sexy.

What doesn't : Messy cuticles, split ends, chapped lips. Everyone deals with these things, but detail-oriented Scorpios are most likely to be annoyed by them. Avoid pastels and bright hues, too. When you pick out an eye shadow or lipstick, choose rich colors like purple and emerald rather than lavender and mint.

I'm completely late on this one, but I'm a scorpio as well. Bella, what you said was right on. Pastels aren't my thing right now. I'm into deep, vibrant colors now. Loving the dark polish too! I keep it on the toes!

Isn't it funny how on target signs birthday is October 24th, and I feel kind of naked without some smoky eye action going on. A pastel every now and then is ok for the home...but when it comes to clothing and accessories, I typically wouldn't be caught dead in them.

My birthday was on the 25th. It's freaky how right on you guys are! Lately I have been obsessing with the smoky eye and I have been dying to get a dark manicure...

All that stuff is soooo true! If my lips are chapped, I get really pissy. And I hate ragged cuticles! I can never master the smoky eye, so maybe I'll get that smoky eye kit for my birthday. Yay Scorpio! Thanks Bella!

I'm a Scorpio and I'm definitely characteristic of the typical Scorpio. Intense, sometimes mooody, passionate, and a keen observer of other people. And the smoky eye is my go-to makeup look. Very appropriate ;)

Happy Birthday to all the sexy Scorps! My birthday was on the 4th. It's fun seeing some of the my likes in Bella's description. I like looking classy and put together and I don't like sloppiness or looking unkempt. Thanks Bella!

My birthday was the 1st as well. Not that I am happy to be getting older.. but I'm dealing. Happy Bday to all the fellow Scorps out there. And BTW, I am sporting a great dark purple nail color right now and I LOVE it.. you see the imperfections a little more, but it gives me a reason to pamper my nails a little more often!
