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.

Virgo Love Forecast

Hello, magnetic one! Cosmic lovebirds Mars and Venus join lucky Jupiter in Virgo this month, amplifying your powers of attraction to a stadium-bright beam. Although desire heats up quickly, don’t rush to settle down. This is your month to play the field and figure out what makes your mojo rise. Just be careful not to lead anyone on — especially while Mercury is retrograde until the 9th. If you’re in a relationship, give yourself a longer leash. Harmless flirting makes you feel attractive, and you can bring that lusty energy home to your mate. Exploring independent interests is also healthy. Absence (the right amount) can make the heart grow fonder.

Money matters become a hot topic this October. Get on the same page about spending and saving, and make a shared budget with your loved one. Then, spend a little of that hard-earned dough during the full moon on the 27th — the perfect time for a couple’s vacation or a getaway with your girlfriends. Pack those sexy underthings, because you could meet someone scintillating while you’re walking along the beach.

Your Beauty Forecast: Berry Blend
To get the look, first apply foundation, using a wet sponge for a sheer finish. Spot treat with concealer, and set everything with powder. Keep your eyes understated with a dusting of neutral shadow all over each lid and a thin line of brown liquid liner along the upper lashline. Then, make your berry lips look even juicier by contrasting them with a bronzy glow: Swirl a reflective bronzer onto the apples of your cheeks, sweeping the powder up toward your temples. Finally, use a lip brush to apply a rich berry lipstick, starting from the outer corners of your mouth and working inward for an extra-precise finish. Dab a shimmery-rose gloss in just the center for a light-reflecting pop and plumping effect.
