Have you been a little too quick to cry, “Next!” when someone fails to measure up? Energetic Mars camps out in Taurus and your seventh house of commitments this month, encouraging you to stay put. But, by no means should you lower your standards, Scorpio. April’s stars will help you slow down, seek understanding, and learn to work out compromises that feel like win-wins. Diplomatic Venus travels right alongside Mars until the 11th, bringing a large dose of compassion. Your rule of thumb for romantic success: Avoid assumptions and ask questions. The eclipse at the beginning of the month could bring hidden information to light. While you might not be thrilled by what you learn — or what you reveal — putting the truth on the table will either bring you closer to your boo or allow you to break up with a clear conscience. Not to fear: With Venus in your all-or-nothing eighth house from the 11th on, you’ll be in your erotic element. Scan the suit-and-tie crowd for your boudoir buddy. You’ll swoon for the stable-provider type this month.
Your Beauty Forecast: A Glittery Smoky Eye
To get the look,
define your eyes by lining the upper and lower lashlines and inner rim with a kajal black eyeliner. Add a heavy dose of sparkle using a playful, glittery black eyeshadow over your entire eyelid from your lashline to your crease. Slightly smudge along your crease using your fingers, and then intensify the look by tapping on a black eyeshadow. To finish, pack more glitter eyeshadow onto the upper inner corner of your eye, and blend across the lid. Apply ample mascara to your lashes. Then, pair the look with a peachy lip color and blush for contrast. All products by Revlon.
