Your Lucky Makeup Colours For October, Based On Your Zodiac
Libra season is here and it’s all about striking a balance in your life. Whether you have been a major workaholic recently or are in a new relationship and can’t get enough of each other, just remember that equilibrium is key. Being balanced is especially important since Mercury Retrograde is about to hit us at the end of the month, and you’re going to need all the luck before that. Here are the lucky colours you should be wearing based on your zodiac sign.

Libra (23 September to 22 October)
Lucky Colour: Baby Blue
September may not have been your best month, but now is your time to shine. Remember to keep a level head and you will be able to take back control of your relationships and work life. Step out of your house with a subtle confidence that is not overbearing with the Make Up Forever Radiant Primer Blue, $70 perfectly suited for brightening Asian skin tones.
Scorpio (23 October to 21 November)
Lucky Colour: Jet Black
Scorpios might feel like life this season is an uphill battle. Expect conflicts and intense emotions to rise in various areas of your life, especially when it comes to work and relationships. However, take comfort in knowing that this is temporary, and in the meantime, put on some Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black, $32 as your dramatic warpaint to take on this rough season.
Sagittarius (22 November to 21 December)
Lucky Colour: Brownish Yellow
Sagittarians should be cautious this month, and be wary of getting into sticky situations with your loved ones. People will look to you for your sage advice and although you have enough on your own plate, always try to exude warmth. The Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette, $83 is has a perfect balance of retro glam with the warm autumn colours.
Capricorn (22 December to 19 January)
Lucky Colour: Baby Pink
Capricorns can expect good things to come from most areas in their life and enjoy a particularly stable financial month. You may not be exactly where you would like to be in this regard, but a steady income flow is ahead of you. If you’re looking to reward yourself this month, grab the Benefit Cosmetics Tickle Box O Highlighter, $53 to add a little rosy glow to your life.
Aquarius (20 January to 18 February)
Lucky Colour: Sunny Yellow
Aquarians this month should be bursting with energy! You might be excited this month about a new project or accomplishing your goals and this is a great time to take that leap of faith. If you’re looking to try something new and step out of your comfort zone, try the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in Yellow, $42.
Pisces (19 February to 20 March)
Lucky Colour: Seaweed Green
October is not going to be an easy month for Pisces and you might be feeling easily irritable or confrontational. Take a deep breath and try not to overexert yourself. If you are in need of some pampering, try the BLITHE Patting Splash Mask Soothing & Healing Green Tea, $54 to gently wash away your (skin) troubles.
Aries (21 March to 19 April)
Lucky Colour: Dull Grey
Finances may not be your strong suit and we get it, there are a million and one things you would love to buy right now. But this month, try to only invest in purchases that will last and if you absolutely must get something, the Infuse.My.Colour Graphite Shampoo, $33 is an affordable way to make a big change in your look.
Taurus (20 April to 20 May)
Lucky Colour: Light Green
This month, be sure to get plenty of rest and stay hydrated as Taurans are likely to fall ill this time of the year. On top of that, stressing about money will only make matters worse. If you feel your skin has been acting up lately, the Laneige Skin Veil Base Cushion SPF 14 PA++ in Light Green, $48 is here to help by neutralising any redness caused by stress or inflammation.
Gemini (21 May to 20 June)
Lucky Colour: Silvery Blue
You are so over the monotony of your relationships this month and are looking for new ways to breathe life into your social life. If you are a single pringle, this is your time to get out there and meet new people. If you need a little help to stand out of the crowd, Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Halo, $65 will do just the trick.
Cancer (21 June to 22 July)
Lucky Colour: Bright Orange
Cancerians, it is time to unleash your inner badass. Do not be afraid to voice your opinions and stay true to your beliefs, but remember to do so respectfully, since you will be more confrontational than usual. If you are hoping to make a big statement then the Huda Beauty Neon Orange Obsessions Pressed Pigment Palette, $45 is the way to go.
Leo (23 July to 22 Aug)
Lucky Colour: Greenish-Yellow
You may be feeling that the passion in your relationships has fizzled out slightly, and this is a good time to bask in the comfort of your partner. For both single and attached Leos, try to spend some quality time with your loved ones. The Huda Beauty Double-Ended Liquid Eyeshadow in Limelight & Gold Chains, $45 is a great way to add some glam to your date nights.
Virgo (23 August to 22 September)
Lucky Colour: Violet Purple
This month is going to feel like you are running on a treadmill and you can’t get off. It is fast-paced and your body is exhausted but you just can’t bring yourself to slow down. Remember it is important to relax and take some time for yourself. Indulge yourself with a “Me Day”, complete with scented candles, a good book and the Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask, $95.
