The Viral TikTok Beauty Trend You Should Try Based on Your Astrological Sign
We're not ashamed to admit that we've spent a lot of time on TikTok in the last year. It's kept us entertained with all sorts of viral moments and challenges that kept our minds off of how much time we spent at home in 2020, and it's even influenced us to buy several beauty products trending on the app. TikTok has also given rise to some of the biggest beauty trends of late, and we're not exaggerating when we say that we've put at least half of them to the test.
From skin "slugging" to the faux freckles trend to Euphoria makeup, there's a TikTok beauty trend out there for everyone — and if you're more inclined to let the stars guide you, there's a beauty trend that perfectly fits your zodiac sign.
Whether you're a sensitive Cancer or an adventurous Sagittarius, keep reading to find out which TikTok beauty trend you should try based on your astrological sign.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): "Draw My Makeup"
You're known for taking risks, and having other people design your eye makeup looks is about as risky as it gets. You find inspiration in some pretty wild places, and even though some of the looks people have drawn in the "Draw My Makeup" Challenge have been out there, you're creative enough to be able to knock any suggestion you might get out of the park.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Euphoria Beauty
You're sensitive, creative, and an escapist, so you need a beauty trend like this Euphoria-inspired makeup challenge that'll perfectly match your dreamy personality.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Skin Icing
You're a fire sign, so needing to cool down every now and again is written in the stars for you. The skin icing trend is just as bold and ambitious as you are, and involves putting ice and/or cold objects on the skin to reduce inflammation — so you can get to glowing, faster.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Side Part
OK, so the cool kids on TikTok may be saying that side parts are officially out, but Tauruses are known for being stubborn, and you won't give up the classic beauty trends you love without a fight. Your side part is here to stay, and we're definitely not mad about it.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21): Rainbow Eyeshadow
Geminis have a very colorful, outgoing personality, so you need a lively makeup look to match. You're also known for having many sides, and the colors of the rainbow in this look can match every side of your personality perfectly.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22): Skin "Slugging"
You're a minimalist at heart, and when it comes to your skin-care routine, the fewer products you can use, the better. That means the skin "slugging" trend might be for you: it only requires one product (Vaseline), meant to be applied at the end of your nighttime routine, and can leave you with an amazing glow when you wake up in the morning.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Foundation Drip
Unlike Cancers, as a Leo you're a maximalist — in every sense of the word. Much like your personality, there's a lot to this makeup hack, and while the thought of layering on globs of foundation might not be everyone's cup of tea, the end result produces a flawless, airbrushed-like look.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Foundation Mixed With Setting Powder
As a perfectionist, you like a full-coverage look, and this foundation-mixed-with-setting-powder hack that went viral on TikTok earlier this year will give you that exact finish.
Libra (September 23 - October 23): "Soap Brows"
You're a charmer and crowd-pleaser, just like the "soap brow" trend that took over last year. It's an eyebrow-shaping technique in which you use a bar of soap to groom your eyebrows, providing a stronger hold than that of an eyebrow gel.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 21): Graphic Eyeliner
You're a powerful spirit with a lot of emotions, which means you need an equally strong graphic eyeliner look to match. We especially like this multicolored option, but TikTok is flooded with fun liner looks to choose from.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Sock Curls
This hack is equal parts wacky and fun, just like you, but it's also effective and produces real, mind-blowing results. On top of being so much easier than the traditional method of curling your hair, it puts a lot less stress on your hair than a curling wand or other heat tool would.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Faux Freckles
Capricorns are very practical, and you love a look that appears fresh and natural while still making you stand out. You can give yourself the illusion of having a few sun-kissed spots on your face by simply applying a few dots with your favorite eyeliner pencil or brow pen.
