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.

Taurus Love Forecast

Who wants to play house? With a posse of planets cooling in your domestic sector this August, you’ll enjoy those sultry nights in with your sweetie. Cuddle by the AC or in a hammock for two. Remember to make time for your #girlgang, too. You’ll be extra sensitive this month, and your supportive sisters can talk you down from a tree (and spare you a lovers’ quarrel) when you’re taking everything personally.

Single and looking? Let your girlfriends play matchmaker. You could meet a mom-approved prospect near the 14th. Just make sure your match lights your fire because boredom is not an option this month. On the 11th, lucky Jupiter moves into Virgo and kicks your love jones into high gear for the year — you’ll be more of a romantic risk-taker until September 2016. No more waiting for the white horse to gallop to your castle door. Be the head writer of your love story!

Your Beauty Forecast: Gilded Lids
To get the look, prep your skin with a touch of liquid luminizer mixed in with your foundation and a dusting of setting powder. Dab foundation onto your eyelids to create a base for your eyeshadow. Then, apply a rich-bronze shadow, starting at your lashline and feathering out at the brow. Use a pencil brush to drag the same shade along your lower lashline. Switch to a brown shadow, and contour the outside corner of your eye and under your lower lashline. Dab gold cream shadow into the inner corner of your eye using your index finger. Add bronzer to your cheeks for depth, and finish the look with a deep-berry lip gloss.
