Well, happy birthday, Gemini! This complex sign is known for its excellent communication skills and charming demeanor, so they're often surrounded by admirers. On the other hand, Geminis can flit from one extreme to another, showing two very different sides of their personality. (Think of Angelina Jolie's humanitarian interests and her still-present bad-girl streak.)

You can often spot a Gemini by her delicate collarbones, wide smile, and small features — just look at Natalie Portman and Nicole Kidman.

For beauty tips and shopping suggestions specific to this sign,


What works if you're a Gemini: Take a risk by wearing colors such as orange, yellow, and magenta. Neon nails are huge for Summer, so that's one way to go for a bold hue, but magenta can be surprisingly flattering if worn as a sheer cheek stain or lip gloss. This sign also rules the hands, so treat yourself to a sumptuous hand cream or manicure from time to time. Oh, and if you want a lip product, try YSL Lip Twins, whose gloss-and-lipstick combination should appeal to your inner twin.

What doesn't: Geminis march to the beat of their own drum, and they know how to be individualistic. (Helena Bonham Carter and Alanis Morrisette are cases in point.) Even if you don't go all-out with your quirkiness, find something that defines you and run with it. The last thing you want is to blend in with everyone else, so if your look is feeling ho-hum, make a salon appointment or try something different to freshen up your style.
