We'll be honest—as fun and exciting as it can be to embark on a beauty shopping expenditure, sometimes, it feels like a lot of freaking work. With so many products and retailers to choose from and sift through, even deciding whether or not we want to re-purchase the same serum we just ran out of (versus trying something new) feels like the decision of the decade. Anyone else? If only we could just let the stars decide… oh, wait.
We're super into astrology over here at Who What Wear HQ, so we thought we'd streamline your beauty buying process by teaming up with our nontoxic sister skincare line, Versed. (The brand's product development director Tamerri Ater—aka AstroFashionista—just so happens to be a professional astrologer, modern mystic, and all-around beauty savant.)
A skincare- and beauty-themed astrology reading is fun any time of the year, but there's something about fall (and October, in particular) that feels especially festive. ICYMI: Versed launched the skincare set of all skincare sets—meet The Big Chill ($17)—to help you transition into the cooling shift of season, so we recommend you grab yourself a kit and settle in for Ater's personalized skin and beauty prescription based on your sign. Keep scrolling! The three most astrologically strategic beauty products for every sign await just below.
Skincare reading: Luxury and relaxation are always at the top of a Taurus’s mind, with the pleasure-seeking planet Venus as your ruler. Enjoy the ultimate pamper-yourself-night-in with the Photos, Please Brightening Tightening Mask ($10) and Keep It Supple Body Oil ($15). Pro Tip: Add to bath water or to damp skin after bathing.
Skincare reading: Cancer is ruled by the moon, so you’re a nurturer to many but may forget to take care of yourself from time to time. Amp up your self-care and keep your skin looking plump and hydrated with Baby Cheeks Hydrating Milk ($18) and Skin Soak Rich Moisture Cream ($18).
Skincare reading: With Mars as your traditional ruler and Pluto as your modern ruler, nothing gets by you, Scorpio. You're a natural investigator who knows how to get down to the bottom of things—even your pores. Physically and chemically exfoliate with Day Maker Microcrystal Exfoliator ($17) and The Shortcut Overnight Facial ($20).
Skincare reading: Capricorn is an earth sign ruled by serious Saturn, so you value structure, hard work, and follow-through. Nothing says serious business like the clinically proven-to-work ingredient, retinol. Level up with Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum ($22), and keep those fine lines in check with Zero-G Smoothing Eye Cream ($18).
Skincare reading: Aquarius is a fixed air sign with the symbol “The Water Bearer,” causing many to mistake you for a water sign. You’re constantly in your head cooking up utopian ideals. A clean slate at the start and end of your day helps keep you focused. Start with Wash It Out Gel Cleanser ($13), and follow up with Just Breathe Clarifying Serum ($20).
