Beauty Gift Guide According To The Zodiac SignsAlexa, play "Signs" by Beyonce.
Thinking of gifts to give your friends and family can feel like it takes more time than the actual shopping itself! A good gift is personal and thoughtful, which is why we think you can't go wrong with catering to someone's zodiac sign. We've put together a list of beauty products that match every sign on your gift list.Capricorn - The Hardworking Dream ChaserCapricorns are known to get stuff done. They're the go-getters of the zodiac, set in their ways when it comes to achieving their goals. They can sometimes come off as stubborn and hard-headed, but they're also very caring to the people in their lives. Sunday Riley's A+ High Dose Retinol Serum is perfect for the Capricorn on your list because it's just like them—hardworking and gets stuff done. This serum is infused with antioxidant CoQ10 and naturally moisturizing honey so that while the retinol works to speed up cellular turnover to reveal new skin, it's also nourishing skin from the drying effects of retinol. Talk about hardworking!

SUNDAY RILEYA+ High-Dose Retinol SerumAquarius - The One-Of-A-Kind VisionaryAquarians have an air of awe around them that makes them irresistible. They are intelligent, unique, and highly creative. Your Aquarian friend is probably the one everybody highly admires for their talent and nurturing nature. They make some of the greatest friends, and deserve a beauty product that highlights their uniqueness! Gift them with Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm—for one it's become an icon (so Aquarian), and two, this unique formula adapts to each individual's unique chemistry to give them a color that perfectly matches their skin tone.Pisces - The Deep ThinkerKnown to be deep thinkers, Pisces aren't afraid to explore the depths of their (and others') emotions. They have a strong intuition and a talent for sensing if something is wrong, making them some of the best people to lean on during hard times. Support your Pisces friend's deep thinking nature by gifting them Herbivore's Coconut Milk Bath. What pairs better than a soak and existential thoughts? Plus, this milk bath softens the skin with only four simple ingredients; coconut milk, coconut pulp, baking soda, and vanilla.
HERBIVORECoconut Milk Bath SoakAries - The Passionate TrailblazerThe Aries on your list is probably booked and busy. This fiery sign is known to be both impulsive yet committed, which means they have a tenacity for life and want to take it by the horns (they are the ram, after all!) Their knack for achieving their goals make them the trailblazers of the zodiac, inspiring other signs to ignite their fire within! A fiery personality deserves a fiery product, like Urban Decay's Naked Heat Palette. Packed with highly-pigmented shadows in notice-me colors, the Aries on your list will appreciate a beauty product that will help them feel confident as they achieve their out-of-this-world goals.
URBAN DECAYNaked Heat Eyeshadow PaletteTaurus - The Lady of Leisure Taureans are purveyors of luxury and comfort. They love the finer things in life, and you can count on a Taurus to throw some of the best parties out there—no detail goes unnoticed. They tend to do all their activities with a bit more luxury than the rest of us, especially when it comes to comfort. Gift them with Slip's Silk Eye Mask, a gorgeously soft silk sleeping mask that will elevate a Taureans (much loved) sleep. Gemini - The Social Butterfly With Geminis, you get more than meets the eye. These fun-loving children of summer are often two personalities rolled in one, which is what makes them so enjoyable to be around. The sign of Gemini is represented by the caring twins, which explains your Gemini friends' playful energy and nurturing personality. Gift them with Fresh's Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask, because just like a Gemini, you get two amazing masks in one. This two-step sleeping mask includes a hydrating rose gel and a silky water-cream mask that you leave on overnight to wake up to soft supple skin. The Gemini on your list is sure to love this playful indulgence! Cancer - The Compassionate Romantic Cancer's get a reputation for being emotional and sensitive, and while this may ring true, we like to think of these traits as positives. Their emotional and sensitive nature makes them some of the most compassionate beings and someone you can easily trust in expressing your feelings. Show the Cancer on your list some love by gifting them a waterproof mascara with lots of lift like L'Oreal Paris' Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara. This cult-favorite makes every set of lashes look sky high, and for our cancer friends, keeps it all in place through every feeling.Leo - The Outgoing LeaderLeos make some of the greatest leaders and superstars thanks to their outgoing nature and desire to be in the spotlight. Just like their lion representative, Leos are incredibly courageous, loyal, protective, and generous. It's safe to say that the Leo in your life can make you feel safe and cared for, and you know they'll always have your back. A beauty gift to match a Leos bright light is I Dew Care's Sugar Kitten Hydrating Holographic Peel Off Mask. This fun mask sparkles like Leo, perfect for snapping an attention-grabbing selfie (#selfcare.)Virgo - The Perfectionist The analytical and detail-oriented nature of Virgos allow them to be the best in whatever field they choose (hey, Beyonce!) Their keen eye and organized manners mean they can achieve great goals without a single step missed. We have to stan! Give the Virgo on your list a beauty tool that's just as detail-oriented as them—like the PMD Clean. This supersonic cleansing device gives skin a deep clean by sending 7,000 vibrations per minute to lift dirt from the skin while it simultaneously firms and tones it. A perfectionist's skincare dream ✨
pmdCleanLibra - The Trendsetting AestheteLibras have a way of finding beauty in everything. The Libra on your list is likely someone who has a knack for aesthetics; they likely have great style, great taste in food, interior design... you get the gist. Their love for balance and beauty means they enjoy indulging in one-of-a-kind products and experiences. Impress your libra friend with a beautiful jade roller from Herbivore. Not only is it pleasing to the eye, but jade rollers can also help bring balance to your skin by reducing puffiness and signs of fatigue while the jade stone attracts harmony, protection, and good luck. Libra jackpot.
HERBIVOREJade De-Puffing Face RollerScorpio - The Secret KeeperScorpios have a rep of being secretive beings, but it's not because they have something to hide—they seek trust within their relationships first before opening up the doors to the depth of their souls (Scorpios can get deep!) It's a protective mechanism for them because once you're in with a Scorpio you have their loyalty and kindness for life. Gift your Scorpio Kiehls Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. Like your Scorpio, this mask gets in deep, detoxing the skin of impurities and minimizing the look of pores. We think this mask is good enough to earn their loyalty 😉Sagittarius - The Traveling Philosopher The jet-setter of the zodiac, Sagittarius' are students of life with an insatiable desire to learn about everything. They are eternal optimists and make for very encouraging and inspiring friends. If your Sagittarius is in town, gift them with the next best thing to a plane ticket—Sol de Janeiro's Coco Cabana Cream. This body cream will transport your Sagittarius friend to Rio de Janeiro with its sweet coconut scent, not to mention it will also soften their skin like no other lotion can!

Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
