Your October Love Horoscope, Revealed

October is the month for true love. The sun blazes a trail through Libra and Scorpio — the signs associated with partnerships and deep bonds. And from the 8th on, Mars and Venus stroll hand in hand — their magic getting some serious love from supersizer Jupiter. But will these heart-opening vibes point us to a new leading man or lady, or will they send us back in time? With Mercury retrograde until the 9th, the stars are spinning sentimental jams. Old flames could make a comeback, and couples may start feeling nostalgic. On the 27th, the tell-it-like-it-is full moon of Taurus helps us place people in their proper categories in our lives and make some serious plans for the future. Ready or not, this month’s about to stir up some feelings.

Pisces Love Forecast

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.
