The Makeup Shades We're Up For Trying This June

Boost your aura and luck a little by flaunting your month’s makeup colours.
Aries (21st March to 19th April)
Lucky colour: Sea Blue Embrace your inner mermaid with the Ciate London Gelology Nail Polish in Part Time Mermaid. The pearlescent finish of the nail polish adds a nice shine to your fingertips, and the name of the shade is super apt for your lucky colour of June. $26, from Sephora Taurus (20th April to 20th May)
Lucky colour: Pearl White Infused with crushed diamond powder and light-reflecting pearls, the Too Faced Diamond Light Highlighter in Diamond Fire gives a subtle radiance to skin. Plus, we like that even as you pick up the powder with your brush, it looks like you’ve barely made a dent in the compact. This means the highlighter will last for a long time. $49, from Sephora Gemini (21st May to 20th June)
Lucky colour: Fiery Red There’s no red more fiery than a pair of Louboutin heels (the soles, we mean), so if you’re looking for a fiery red, it kind of makes sense to go for the Christian Louboutin Beauty Loubilaque Lip Lacquer in Rouge Louboutin. This lip lacquer draws inspiration from the designer’s “long-standing love affair with lacquer” and iconic patent-leather accessories. It gives high colour payoff and the finish is not sticky. Plus, you can also wear this as a pendant because, why not? US$108 (S$148.77), from Net-a-Porter   Cancer (21st June to 22nd July)
Lucky colour: Forest Green The Urban Decay Born To Run 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Overdrive is a creamy eyeliner that can be smudged before it sets (it takes about 30 seconds), so you can get a smoky green eye look. Great for a night out on the town. $33, from Urban Decay boutiques and Sephora Leo (23rd July to 22nd August)
Lucky colour: Bright Orange The unisex Maison Margiela Replica By the Fireplace EDT is said to capture the feeling of a winter morning in front of the fireplace. We like the notes of red berries and orange blossom, which are kept interesting with chestnut and vanilla. $145, from Sephora Virgo (23rd August to 22nd September)
Lucky colour: Peach Pink This 3 Couleurs Tri(O)blique Palette in #853 Rosy Canvas helps brighten up your eyes with its rosy hues. Your lucky colour this month is the one in the middle, which you can use on its own. Or use it as a base colour and intensify it with the purple above it or the deep plum below it. $104, from Dior counters from June 2019 Libra (23rd September to 22nd October)
Lucky colour: Red Who doesn’t love red lipstick? Try the new Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss in Icon, a vampy red that brightens up your skin tone. The formula is not too sticky, and it plumps up lips to diminish the appearance of fine lines. Shea butter and avocado oil also keep your puckers moisturised and nourished. $50, from Hourglass counters at Tangs, and Sephora Scorpio (23rd October to 21st November)
Lucky colour: Sky Blue Give your nails a touch of drama with the sky blue shade, with the NCLA Duchess of L.A. Nail Lacquer. We love how the bits of glitter add glam to your tips. $23, from Sephora Sagittarius (22nd November to 21st December)
Lucky colour: Sunny Yellow It’s a little challenging to incorporate a sunny yellow into your daily makeup, so we say cheat a little with this Foreo Luna Play Plus cleansing device. The waterproof device cleans with sonic pulsations that remove dead skin cells, dirt and impurities on skin gently. It also helps improve the absorption of skincare products that follow. Plus, even after the month ends, the bright, cheery colour of the Foreo Luna Play Plus will continue to brighten up your bathroom cabinet. $79, from Sephora Capricorn (22nd December to 19th January)
Lucky colour: Navy Blue Cle de Peau Beaute’s Ombre Poudre Solo Powder Eye Color Solo in #212 Oriental is a powder eyeshadow. It is dermatologist- and opthalmologist-tested, and has a special Hydro-Wrap Complex EX and argan tree oil to ensure it moisturises drier eyelids and doesn’t flake off by midday. $60, from Cle de Peau Beaute boutique at #01-09 Mandarin Gallery and counters Aquarius (20th January to 18th February)
Lucky colour: Jet Black This colour’s an easy one to incorporate into your makeup. Try tightlining your eyes with this Burberry Beauty Effortless Kohl Eyeliner, which glides along the lash line for gentle application. The formula is also waterproof, and you can draw a thicker eyeliner and smudge it for a more intense look. $39, from Burberry Beauty counter at Tangs Orchard, and Sephora Pisces (19th February to 20th March)
Lucky colour: Sable Brown The wearability of the colours in this Natasha Denona Camel Eyeshadow Palette makes sure you can wear this beyond this month. Your lucky colour’s the one in the middle, called Safari. It’s best used as a base colour – you can layer on any of the other four colours to create different looks, from a subtle smoky eye to a full on glittery one. $72, from Sephora
