Oh, Leos. They’re a lot, and we love them for it. As we enter Leo season, it’s the time to celebrate these fierce lions and lionesses, and all that makes them unique. This zodiac sign is known for being loyal, passionate, creative, charismatic, and always seeking the spotlight. And they often get it, as their personalities effortlessly attract others in the most beautiful ways. Leo’s inner and outer beauty also transfers over into their makeup routine, as this fire sign expresses themselves through warm hues like exquisite gold, beautiful bronze, and burnt orange. Oh and shimmer, lots of shimmer. Look fierce and fresh with our favorite beauty products to show your Leo pride (pun intended!) this season.
Kylie is the queen of the Leo’s, with a talent for setting trends in the beauty industry and a fierce dedication to her loved ones. Seriously, she’s obsessed with her daughter Stormi and so are we. And while you may not have the pocket change and Los Angeles mansion that Kylie does, you can still pay tribute to your beloved fire sign with the Matte Lip Kit in Leo by Kylie Cosmetics. This deep burgundy shade makes a statement and gives your makeup look the attention it deserves, staying on all day as you transition into richer colors for the fall season. You can also fake a fuller pout, as each set features one pencil lip liner and one matte liquid lipstick to emphasize your lips and bring out your inner Kylie.
A not-so-fun fact about the Leo zodiac sign? It’s believed that many of them suffer from dry skin, as this sign is governed by the sun and characterized by consistent heat. While it’s not the best thing to hear, it is an excuse to indulge yourself with the Thirst Trap Cocoon Mask by Wishful. Leos are confident, and enjoy admiration from themselves as much as they like it from others. You know what that means? Self care. Thirst Trap Cocoon mask is a new addition to Huda Kattan’s skincare line, made with natural, ultra-hydrating ingredients like glycerin, niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate and more to hydrate the skin while reducing inflammation and accelerating the production of ceramides. It’s pretty much an entire skincare routine in one $9 mask, and the ideal beauty product to give you that Leo glow.
What lion doesn’t want a little cat eye? Winged eyeliner is a major lewk for anybody with the Leo zodiac sign, as it plays to all your strengths and desires. Holding your favorite liquid eyeliner, like the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner by Stila, in your hand and creating a flawless wing satisfies your need for control and precision in life. The dramatic effect of a cat eye, and the compliments from others that it brings, symbolizes your love for the spotlight. And then there’s all the sparkly eyeshadow looks that go along with a sharp wing, showing the passion and creativity that truly makes the Leo zodiac sign special. Add this top-rated liquid eyeliner by Stila to your collection of seasonal beauty products to embrace your inner lioness.
One of our favorite traits of the Leo zodiac sign? Loyalty. This sign will always stand by their pride, and this dedication extends to beauty products. Although they love checking out the latest makeup hacks and trying new beauty products (they’re trendsetters, after all)... a Leo will never forget about their favorite drugstore brands that they’ve been using since they were just a cub. Like L’Oreal. Despite being a drugstore product, the Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum has top ratings in our community for hydrating and brightening - and will give a Leo’s dry skin the moisture and radiance it deserves. Wear it alone or add a few drops to your daily moisturizer for a naturally beautiful complexion that’s so Leo.
Note to everybody with the Leo zodiac sign: if you didn’t already know, gold is your color. It represents your love for all things regal and exquisite, and you need the right makeup products to make you feel beautiful and adored. The perfect beauty product for any Leo? Gold Eyeshadow Palette by Natasha Denone. This palette features 15 matte, metallic, and duochrome shadows in multiple shades of gold, along with browns and greens to create a variety of elegant eye looks. Layer each and every shade to express your creativity and passion for sparkly things, catching the light (and other’s attention!) with every glance. And if Gold Eyeshadow Palette is a bit pricey for your taste, just remember that Natasha Denone also has a mini version of this beauty product for just $25!
As one of the most fun signs in the zodiac that loves to meet new people, Leo’s are always the life of the party. And often, the party takes place outside… which is why every Leo needs SPF! To be clear, every sign needs this essential beauty product no matter where they are. However, the Leo zodiac sign is ruled by the sun, and these individuals tend to soak up plenty of rays and spend a lot of time tanning. A Leo can still get a glowing and golden complexion while keeping skin protected at all times, all they need is a good tinted moisturizer - like the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 by NARS! This makeup product provides medium coverage and a demi-matte finish to keep you shimmering under the sun all season.
MAC is one of the most popular beauty brands in the world that always brings the drama, in the best way. Remind you of somebody? Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is an essential for Leo season, a one-step powder foundation that provides long-lasting coverage and a flawless, airbrushed finish for up to 12 hours. It feels smooth on your skin, won’t clog your pores, and works for either day or night drama. Apply it on your face in under five minutes on the mornings you want full coverage, but aren’t in the mood to apply a liquid foundation, or use it on your first post-quarantine night out for a beautifully extra look that will last all night long. Finish it off with a swipe of MAC’s world famous Ruby Woo red lipstick for an extra dose of Leo glam.
We can’t talk about beauty products for the Leo zodiac sign without mentioning one of the most ageless, unbelievably gorgeous Leo’s ever: Jennifer Lopez. She’s 50 going on 20, with skin that makes people of all ages envious and wonder what her skin care secret is. As it turns out, it’s a $45 cream that you can get at the grocery store! Rose Day Cream by Dr. Hauschka is a luxurious beauty product that uses precious extracts of rose petals and wild rose hips to balance the complexion, soothe inflammation, and add hydration to create youthful radiance. Even if you’re only in your 20’s or 30’s, just know that you can look like J.Lo with this Leo skin care essential by your side.
Leo is a huge fan of sparkly makeup products, that’s just a fact. And while RiRi may not be a lioness herself, she definitely understands the power of shimmery glam and using makeup as a tool of confidence. This is why you need the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick by Fenty Beauty in your life. Just glide it onto your cheeks, nose, or forehead for a light and shimmery sensation that emphasizes any makeup look. It’s available in 15 shades, but we recommend Blonde or Champagne Heist for a boost of major Leo energy.
Many Leo’s can be a bit vain, and that is 100% okay. In fact, it’s more than okay… as it simply means that you have an appreciation for beauty in all forms and putting your best face forward. Literally. Since your Leo skin tends to be a bit dry due to the heat radiating from your body, it also means that it’s easier for dirt, oil, and other impurities to get trapped under the surface. Gross. Use a good exfoliant, like the Exfoliating Scrub by Clinique, several times each week to deep clean your skin and remove all the junk for your most beautiful complexion. Remember, most Leo’s love to be the center of attention, and there’s no greater compliment than people thinking you’re wearing makeup when you’re actually not!
Despite being a sign that loves the spotlight, every Leo looks incredible in a subtle nude lip. It adds warmth and regality, whether worn with a dramatic eye look or simple everyday makeup, and just creates a touch of subtle glam wherever you go. Not sure where to find the right nude lipstick for you? Look no further than Vice Lipstick in Naked by Urban Decay, a sweet pink nude that enhances your best features and makes you feel like the ultimate lioness. Vice Lipstick is also infused with Vitamins C and E, plus aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils to make your lips feel soft and nourished.
If you just took one look at this makeup product by Colourpop and immediately thought “pumpkin spice lattes,” you’re not wrong… it’s definitely a fall palette. But it’s also a Leo zodiac sign must-have, especially for those who want to show their pride on a budget. Dip into creamy golds, reds, and oranges that blend beautifully and stay put on your eyes for hours, mixing and matching for a variety of shimmery looks perfect for a Leo. Sunset eyes? Deep burgundy cut crease? A simple wash of gold? Colourpop has you covered.
Look pretty and full of pride with the best beauty products for Leo season, all on MIRA BEAUTY.
