Perfectionist, practical, and always on-point in every aspect of their lives… that’s a Virgo. This Earth sign is characterized by plenty of positive traits, including high intelligence, keen attention to detail, and a talent for making lists that can’t compete with any other sign. They also inspire some really beautiful Virgo season makeup looks, many of which include warm browns, nude lips, and a simple, fresh-faced aesthetic that’s ideal for the fall season. While it’s true that those with a Virgo sign generally go for more minimal makeup looks, they’re far from boring. These Earth goddesses can create the most gorgeous olive smokey eye or winged brown eyeliner in just one swipe, as their passion for details and precision makes them skilled at even the most intricate makeup effects. As we enter Virgo season, now is the time to channel your inner goddess and bring these looks to life… and we’ve lined up the best beauty products to celebrate the Virgos in our lives.
Virgo season begins right as temperatures are starting to drop, and everybody is starting to pull out their fall eyeshadow palettes for the best neutral eye looks ever. Is this a coincidence? We think not. As an Earth sign, the warm brown, ashy gray, and rich taupe hues that make up your favorite neutral eyeshadow palettes appeal to every aspect of a Virgo: modest, practical, simplistic, and elegant. These shades add warmth to the face and strike the perfect balance between simple and striking, and you can create a variety of looks for Virgo season with the Supreme Nudes Palette by Artist Couture. From classic mattes like Silhouette and Exposed to shimmers like Opulence and Supreme, nothing is off limits when you want to show your blending skills as a Virgo sign. Apply a simple wash of caramel or mocha on the days you simply have too much on the agenda (because again, Virgo) or experiment with more vibrant hues to express your artistry in a unique way.
Virgos work incredibly hard, and sometimes to an unhealthy extent. While work ethic is one of the greatest Virgo traits, you still need to take time for yourself and do the self-care routine you deserve. Not to mention, all that stress has the potential to cause more wrinkles and dull your natural radiance… and nobody wants that. Get started with self-care during Virgo season with a Gua Sha, a skin scraping tool that feels flawless on your face and gives skin a natural lift. This method originated hundreds of years ago in Chinese medicine, and now refers to a small stone made with Amethyst, Rose Quartz, or Jade. A gua sha is scraped across your face to provide a relaxing facial massage, back and forth and in various directions to enhance your natural beauty. The Virgo sign in you will get a kick out of the repetitive motions, and the massage will temporarily take your mind off your big work presentation or what color shoes you’re going to wear tomorrow. Admit it, most Virgos have had these thoughts. A gua sha will soothe your facial muscles, aid lymphatic drainage, and make your skin glow… but most importantly, it gives the most hard-working Virgo signs a moment to just chill.
Precision is key when putting together a beauty routine for Virgo signs. They want every last detail of their look to be on-point, and in this case we mean that literally. Lip liner is a great beauty product for anybody, as it makes your lipstick last longer and look better. But it should be a staple during Virgo season, as the process alone makes anybody with this Zodiac sign all warm, fuzzy, and fabulous inside. And out. You see, the process of applying lip liner requires skill, detail, and precision - three Virgo traits that truly shine through when doing makeup. It’s like the most gorgeous coloring book ever, using your lip liner pencil to shade and define while getting every last curve and contour of your pout. And then seeing your masterpiece in real time after applying a swipe of your favorite lipstick. There are so many sources of joy in this process for the Virgo sign, from your first glide of the Suede Matte Lip Liner by NYX Professional Makeup to the finished look that shows the beauty of your attention to detail.
Earthy makeup for an Earth sign. Virgo season means swapping out black liner for a warm brown hue that lights up your eyes. And looks even better when paired with the neutral eyeshadow we told you about earlier. When you smudge a good pencil liner around your lids, you’ll notice that your lashes are amped up and your eyes have more depth. All because of this slightly lighter hue that you may or may not have ever considered using. Just like the Virgo sign, this beauty product is incredibly beautiful and occasionally misunderstood. While some may be under the false impression that brown liner is boring, they’ve yet to see the sultry and subtle looks that it can create. Even if you’re used to reaching for your trusted black liner, a warmer hue in cocoa, taupe, or chestnut shades will create dimension that you didn’t even know existed. Our favorite for Virgo season? Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon in Brown(Out) by Marc Jacobs Beauty, which 94% of MIRA guests agree is non-smudging and delivers precise application in one glide across your lids.
Since a Virgo is always striving for perfection, it makes sense that their go-to foundation is Even Better than the rest. Pun intended. This foundation by Clinique is everything your sign needs in a beauty product, going beyond just covering your complexion and nourishing the skin underneath. In addition to beautiful coverage and a natural finish, Even Better contains Vitamin C to add brightness to your face and SPF15 to protect against environmental damage. Zendaya is one of our favorite Virgos ever, and she seconds the need for sun protection. She told Elle in 2019 that while she generally wears very little makeup off set, she always wears SPF. Because you’ve gotta have SPF. It’s even better when infused into your foundation, and Even Better will take your skin to the next level and give you that fresh-faced Virgo vibe.
No sign pulls off minimal makeup quite like Virgo. Their days are packed with lists and deadlines, and they simply don’t have the time to wake up each morning and do an hour-long glam beauty routine. But that’s okay, because they don’t need it! Simplicity is everything as a Virgo sign, and a key makeup tip is to enhance what you already have instead of trying to change it. In this case, apply a bit of lash primer before your daily coats of mascara to give your natural lashes a lift and look elegant without even trying. Lash Primer Plus by Estée Lauder will maximize your lashes by boosting volume and conditioning, helping to coat even the smallest lashes for major luxury. 93% of MIRA guests say that Lash Primer Plus is volumizing, while another 96% report that it’s long-lasting and doesn’t smudge. And to the highly analytical mind of the Virgo sign, these numbers are enough to make lash primer a part of your everyday makeup routine.
It’s safe to say that a Virgo likes to be in control. This sign is organized to the extreme and performs every task with precision… and that includes their beauty routine! Just one blending sponge and a couple brushes won’t do when creating your best Virgo sign makeup look, as they need all the right tools at their fingertips to do their best work. And you’ll find them all with the Sculpt and Blend 2 brush set by BH Cosmetics. It features 10 tools for your eyes and face, which 97% of MIRA guests say are good quality and 95% agree have ultra-soft bristles. These brushes blend like a dream and amplify every look, and you know they’ll look beautiful as they’re perfectly organized on every Virgo vanity.
You know those people you know who are constantly reading the labels on their beauty products, scanning every ingredient to guarantee that it’s 100% organic and vegan? They’re probably Virgos. This sign is all about wellness, as their logical side knows that the secret to long-lasting beauty and health is treating your body with kindness. Luckily, it’s easier than ever in these times to find the best clean and natural skin care products for Virgo season… and you should definitely start with Tata Harper. The brand makes all of their products with their own chemists on a farm in Vermont, and use only the most safe, high-quality ingredients. 100% natural, without any toxins, fillers, artificials, synthetics, or other bad stuff that you didn’t even know was making you break out for years. Rejuvenating Serum will keep your complexion in the best shape all through Virgo season, when the cold air starts to have an effect on your skin. It’s formulated with Peptides from Spanish Lavender to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, Hyaluronic Acid for hydration, and Natural Sugar Polymers from Larch Tree to smooth and soften your skin’s texture, and those ingredients are as calming and gentle as they sound. Do Virgo season the right way with this wellness treat for your skin.
Any Virgo sign who says they haven’t pulled a few all-nighters is probably lying. It’s just a fact. Their work ethic and perfectionist ways mean that they’re the first to finish a group project on their own or take the lead on a work presentation. And while we all know and love these Virgo traits, there’s a good chance that they’ve led to a few dark circles under your eyes. Possibly chronic ones… but there’s a cream for that. Take a break and apply the Creamy Eye Treatment by Kiehl’s, a cream infused with avocado oil to moisturize and nourish the skin, beta-carotene for antioxidant benefits, and shea butter to defend against dehydration. Dark circles are never a good look, and a wellness queen like Virgo knows that fine lines and bags make you look instantly older. Give your eyes a boost of energy and vitality with this dream cream that’s perfect for Virgo season.
While the dates for Virgo season are technically the end of August through late September, we need to take a moment and admire how gorgeous the latter’s birthstone is. Sapphire is a pure, rich blue color that represents loyalty, trust, fulfillment, joy, and inner peace and beauty… and all the Virgos born in September should indulge in this elegant hue as you celebrate your birthday in style. You could always sweep a bit of sapphire eyeshadow onto your lids, like Stila’s Vivid & Vibrant Eye Shadow Duo - Sapphire. But we’re especially fond of the Beautyblender in Sapphire, which lets every Virgo practice the art of precision while flawlessly blending out foundation or concealer. Or basically any other liquid or cream beauty product. Just like the original Beautyblender, this one will bring out the Virgo in you with this beautiful hue. Just wet the sponge, and start dabbing across your face with the perfect amount of product. You won’t have to worry about fallout, excess cream, or the sponge absorbing too much of your favorite cream blush, as your Beautyblender does all the work for you and provides a flawless finish for your face makeup.
