Here's What Your Love Life Looks Like This Month

Be still thy beating heart! September is off to an auspicious start as cosmic lovebirds Venus and Mars make an exact connection on the 1st. What we want and need becomes even clearer after the 6th, when Venus snaps out of a five-week retrograde. Keep it PG though, people. Stern Saturn trudges through sexy Scorpio until the 17th, putting our naughtier natures on ice. With two eclipses this September — on the 13th and 27th — there will be lots of surprises in store. Secret crushes may be revealed, and our own hidden desires will come to light. Romance gets epic on the 23rd, when the sun heads into Libra for a month. Bring on the red roses, promise rings, and teary-eyed declarations of love. But, make sure you’re sure before you get down on bended knee or fire off a sexy Snapchat, because Mercury is retrograde from September 17 until October 9, causing signals to scramble.

Pisces Love Forecast

Ready to make it official, Pisces? With a planetary pileup in your seventh house of relationships, you are thinking long-term this September. On the 13th, a galvanizing solar eclipse could push a casual connection into the exclusive zone. Or, you could up your relationship game with an existing partner — quite possibly putting a ring on it or speeding up the timeline for your next steps together. Single Pisces could meet someone who screams “soulmate” near this eclipse. But, the window of opportunity will be brief, so don’t deliberate too long. If you’re attracted, speak up! Mercury turns retrograde from the 17th on, which could bring an old flame back into the picture. Remember your willpower! Rekindling that spark could lead to an unhappy obsession. Careful with the sexting, too. With Mercury’s muddling, you could send that sultry vid’ to your sister instead of your sweetie. #FML

Your Beauty Forecast: Powerful Pink
To get the look, prep your skin with foundation, concealer, and powder as needed. Add a touch of foundation to your lids to create a base for your eye makeup. Then, use a soft, tapered brush to apply pale-pink shadow from your lashline to your browbone. Define your lashes with mascara, and groom your brows with a pencil and brow gel. Complement your soft, pink eyes with flushed cheeks, using a large powder brush to swirl bright, rosy blush atop your cheekbones. Finish with hot-pink lip stain, and layer on extra coats for a more powerful punch.
