The eyes have it for fall 2017—or should we say, the penetrating gaze. As maximalist Jupiter sets sail in seductive Scorpio from October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018, we have ample reason to dress those windows to the soul. Self-possessed sass is also au courant, as Jupiter sharpens Scorpio’s sting which makes us think of Jim Carrey’s bon mot, “Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.” Whether you’re throwing shade or a come-hither glance, here’s the look your zodiac sign just has to try.
Rams are going goth this fall and a liquid black eyeliner is your staple. Detour away from the basic cat-eye and head north. Draw a graphic line in the crease or just under your brows. Opt for super smudge-proof. Thanks to Jupiter in Scorpio’s nocturnal and erotic boost, you’ll be staying out late—and even waking up, uhhhh where?
It’s high season for romance as Jupiter the gambler places his chips in your house of everlasting love. Apply the Twiggy lashes and make it obvious that you’re batting your eyes. And when you’re ready to make it all Instagram official, this look has “photo shoot” written all over it.
The upside-down eyeliner trend has Gemini written all over it. Your dualistic sign knows that there are two sides to basically everything. So, why have we ignored the lower lid for so long? That changes now—so bring that (Gemini) Pat McGrath glitter shadow south of the lash line.
No one puts Cancer in the corner! Well, not with live-out-loud Jupiter flashdancing through your flamboyant fifth house this fall. You’ll have parties to attend, appearances to make—even red carpets to walk. Gemstone brows are so it for you. You might even pull them off as a daring daytime look, at least on Casual Friday.
Red eye shadow? It’s a thing this fall, Leo—true story. But who better than a fire sign to catapult this trend to new levels of fierce? With big-hearted Jupiter in your emo fourth house, this might be a three-hanky season for you as you tear up sentimentally over the slightest thing. So in terms of color theory, there’s an added benefit as the crimson on your lids cancels out the red of your misty eyes. #NoFilter
You’re in true, Mercury-ruled form this fall, Virgo: curious, impulsive and on the move. With intrepid Jupiter in your third house, your attention span will be shorter than usual. Variety is the spice of your beauty game—and you’re feeling pretty fearless. Widen your palette with pops of bright colors—oranges, turquoise and lilacs—and paint graphic shapes around your lids. Bonus: Your outré vibe will be the perfect icebreaker during this ultra-social cosmic cycle.
Sweet simplicity! After thirteen months of unprecedented expansion, you’re ready to restore some equilibrium to those Libran scales. And that means embracing the art of “low-maintenance chic.” What if you could pare down to one, perfect pink palette? Good news: Dusty rose blush gets parallel play on both cheeks and eyes this season. Swipe on a top-coat of clear gloss for extra shimmer.
From celestial spy to scene-stealing Samurai? This could be your end-of-year evolution, Scorpio. From October 10, 2016 to November 8, 2018, live-out-loud Jupiter zips through your sign, a once-per-decade transit that wakes up your warrior spirit. With painterly makeup trends that verge on tribal, get ready to battle anything that stands in your way.
Extra dream time is required for Archers this fall as your galactic guardian Jupiter slips into a celestial sabbatical until November 2018. You might as well sleep in. Super smudged liner is all the rage and you could redefine #IWokeUpLikeThis with the help of Mr. Sandman. (Though wearing yesterday’s makeup every day, is…ew.) For added impact, try a smoky eye topped with a dusting of glitter. Hello, Dark Crystal.
Conventionality, be damned! You’re breaking every mold this fall as daring Jupiter sweeps through your edgy, eccentric 11th house. Wave your neon mascara wand for a futuristic effect—or take it even further with epic extensions worn on both the top and bottom lashes. NSFW? Probably not. But with this Jupiter cycle afoot, you may have a lot more wiggle room than usual when it comes to what’s considered stylistically “office-appropriate.”
Your rebel yell softens from a scream to a near-whisper this fall—though for you, Aquarius, there’s something edgy about being understated. No, you’ll never abandon your punk rock roots, but with Jupiter ascending to your ambitious 10th house, prosperity might take precedence over pandemonium. Strike a happy medium with a copper shadow, dusted on the upper lid by day, extended to a metallic smoky eye for office happy hour and networking.
First question: Will it fit in a travel-sized beauty bag? Next: Will the packaging trip the alarm when you’re going through TSA security? Your wanderlust is piqued this fall as worldly Jupiter embarks on a year-plus journey through your nomadic ninth house. What can be done with a mascara wand and a single pot of bright-toned shadow? How about understated lashes and rainbow-bright brows?
