Your August Love Horoscope, Revealed

comments
Get ready to relive the good old days. This August, romantic Venus is retrograde, making us all quite nostalgic. We could reconnect with an ex, search “the one that got away,” or take a heartwarming trip down Memory Lane with our mates. However, not all systems are go. While Venus is driving in reverse, we’re more likely to misconstrue people’s feelings. Is it a fling or the real thing? That won’t always be clear. But, remember, with Jupiter heading into precise, particular Virgo for a year on August 11, we can afford to be more selective. Only the best, dahhhlings, only the best.

Scorpio Love Forecast

Look who’s bringing sexy back — in a smart, stable kind of way. With traditional Saturn in Scorpio all month, it’s obvious you’re the total package, so own it! You can afford to be more demanding in love this month. Not that you want to lead with an entitled attitude — just ask for what you need with the confidence that you can get it.

With your career house activated, you may feel too busy for love at times. Opt for quality time if you don’t have large quantities. Mark that good, old-fashioned date night on the calendar each week, and put some thought into the plans you make. Single Scorpios could meet a mate through a work event. Or, an office crush could heat up — with someone truly worthy of your attention. Coupled Scorpios, you may be inspired to map out a business idea with your boo. Circle the full moon on the 29th for a high romance day. There could even be a proposal or pregnancy.

Your Beauty Forecast: Sculpted Cheeks & Berry Lips
To get the look, prep your skin with an anti-shine primer, then mix just a dab of liquid luminizer with your foundation. Spot treat with concealer (as needed), and dust all over with setting powder. Use a pencil to shape and sharpen your brows, creating a bold frame for your face. To add movement, brush them up with a bit of brow gel. Grab a large powder brush, and contour just below your cheekbones with a tan blush two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Anchor your look with warm berry tones on your lids and lips. Sweep metallic shadow across your entire lid and all along your lower lashline. Then, line and fill in your lips with a rich raisin shade. Top with two coats of a berry lipstick with subtle metallic shine.
