It’s Here! Your Monthly Love Horoscope Awaits

comments
Va-va-voom! May is off to a sultry start thanks to a full moon in Scorpio on the 3rd. As the sun tours traditional Taurus toward the end of the month, you’ll get the urge to settle down. (Do we hear bells?) But, don’t start doodling names in hearts and Googling wedding china just yet. Passionate Mars will swoop into flirty Gemini on May 11. (Watch out: Your eyes may wander during this six-week phase.) This month could also bring second thoughts about a romance — or a second chance with the one who got away. Don’t be too quick to categorize people in the second half of the month. You may just find that friends can become lovers and deeper connections are revealed. Buckle up your seat belts — May is coming in hot.

Capricorn Love Forecast

You knew they were trouble when they walked in — and that’s exactly why you’re feeling so darn attracted to that rebel soul. With the sun beaming through your flamboyant fifth house until the 21st, you’ll fall for the rock-star type. It’s not every month that you let yourself break wild like this, but in May, you are seriously jonesing for some fun in your love life. Don't worry — common sense won’t totally fly out the window. On the 7th, Venus heads into your seventh house of commitment, making you long for stability. Ideally, you’ll attract someone who is equally exciting and predictable, but you might have to compromise a little on stage presence. That’s fine because you’ll crave more connection after the 7th.

If you’re in a relationship, diplomatic Venus helps you negotiate, find win-wins, and hash out compromises this month. Make sure you put more “we time” on the books, too — and don’t let work be your excuse for not spending at least one date night a week (sans work cell) with your amour. After the 11th, Mars puts you in a practical headspace. You’ll want to know where a romance is heading. Be honest but careful — you could wind up adding too much pressure to the relationship, especially while Mercury is in retrograde from May 18 to June 11.

Your Beauty Forecast: A Fierce, Metallic Ombré Eye
To get the look, apply a gold cream shadow all over the lid, through the crease, and along the lower lashline. Contour the eye using a slate-gray shadow along the outer corner, into the crease, and along the lower lashline. Keep the contour dramatic and unexpected by angling up with your shadowing, into the brow for strong inner-eye definition. Rim the eye with a black kajal pencil, and apply two healthy coats of mascara. Using your finger, tap on a honey-colored lipstick for a soft, diffused finish.
