Who wants to play house? Nomadic Aquarians are feeling the call of the love nest this May, as the sun settles into your domestic zone until the 21st. Having someone sweet to come home to sounds like heaven — yes, even to your liberated ears. If you’re not ready to share a lease, you might agree on more sleepovers every week. And, while you’re a social butterfly, spending quality time at home will light your fire in the first half of May. With Venus in homespun Cancer after the 7th, you’ll also enjoy teaming up with your sweetie on some make-better missions. Tackle a household-improvement project, set up a workout area, or take turns making each other green smoothies in the morning. But, if all of this sounds a little too staid and boring, fear not. On the 21st, the sun will tour Gemini for a month, meaning your wilder nature will be back with a vengeance.
Single Aquarians won’t have trouble attracting people — it’s deciding which one to keep around that will be the hard part. The lead singers and peacocks could make you swoon, but with a tricky Mercury retrograde from the 18th on, they’re probably better to admire from afar. While Mercury’s in reverse until June 11, you could be attracted to drama like a moth to a flame. Make sure you have plenty of healthy excitement in your life so you don’t go seeking it in the arms of a troublemaking train wreck.
Your Beauty Forecast: A Two-Toned Cheek
To get the look,
prep skin with primer and use a damp sponge to apply foundation for a sheer finish. Using a large powder brush, apply a peachy blush from your temples, down the cheekbones, and to the apples of the cheeks. Blend an orangey-red shadow from the temples to the cheekbones in a C shape. Then, apply a hot-pink shadow from the cheekbones up through the temples and above the brows. Use a light dust of the highlighting palette to ensure the colors blend flawlessly. Finish off your look with just a hint of lip gloss. All products by Revlon.
