We’re not going to lie to you, Pisces — October will be intense. Of course, that’s exactly how your passionate, poetic sign prefers it. With the sun buzzing through your erotic eighth house until the 23rd, you’ll be quite the minx. Privacy please! What happens behind closed doors could be legendary. But Mercury is retrograde until the 9th, so choose your boudoir buddies wisely. Run background checks, and make them earn your attention. If someone returns from your past, be cautious about offering him or her a second chance.
Fortunately, there will be no shortage of options this month. Cosmic couple Venus and Mars joins Jupiter in your committed relationship house. Real-deal romance could gallop to your castle door on the 12th, 15th, or 25th. Attached? Your relationship could deepen considerably near those dates. (Do we hear bells?) Whatever the case, pump up the volume on your romantic efforts, and you’ll revel in the rewards.
Your Beauty Forecast: Shades Of Smoky
To get the look,
glide a black kajal pencil liberally along your upper lashline. Then, use an angled brush to blend and sweep the line out into a cat-eye at the outer corner. Repeat this technique using a brown kajal pencil, applying it directly above (but not layered on top of) the black one. Next, blend a bronze shadow over your lid and through the crease. Sweep the same shade along your lower lashline. Apply two coats of mascara, and lightly fill in your brows with a pencil. To balance out your sexy, smoky eyes, swirl peach highlighter over the apples of your cheeks, and don’t be shy — you want your cheekbones to pop. Finish the look with a coat of lacquered lip gloss in a dusty-rose shade for an allover peaches-and-cream complexion.All products by Revlon.
