Stars have always influenced our day-to-day lives – from our personality traits to our career paths, but did you know that zodiac signs each have their own power colours? Incorporating these into your wardrobe and makeup routine can bring in a totally different energy, while providing you with inner peace (and a whole lot of outer style).

Taureans are naturally grounded and practical, with a love for all things luxury. Both natural and opulent, emerald green is the perfect shade for any Taurus – sun, moon, or rising. Not only will this colour help Taureans feel happier, but it also represents wealth, which ranks high in value for them.

Geminis have a bright and sunny personality that can light up just about any room. Ruled by Mercury, they are extremely sociable, friendly and always know how to have a good time. And much like our Geminis, mango tango is a bold and bright shade that no one can pass up on.

As one of the most emotional signs of the Zodiac, Cancers are ruled by the Moon and are both compassionate and sentimental. It comes as no surprise that jean jacket blue is their power colour, as it will best suit their emotional nature, and help them be more in tune with these emotions.
Leo: Sunset GoldGetty Images
Ruled by the Sun, Leos are charismatic, charming and always the star of the show. Sunset gold is the perfect shade to embrace their regal side and provide them with that extra fabulousness (not that they need it). Plus, they’ll love the endless compliments.
Virgo: Nuts for CoconutsGetty Images
Virgos are perfectionists through and through and are undoubtedly the most analytical sign of the Zodiac. There’s nothing more Virgo-approved than a subtle off-white hue. This power colour will help calm a Virgo’s overthinking mind while helping up the ante on their style.
Libra: Watermelon SorbetGetty Images
Libras are flirty, charming and striking. Ruled by Venus –the goddess of love– Libras adore all things eye-pleasing and fun. Sporting watermelon sorbet will not only help a Libra stay super stylish all year long, it will attract the fairy tale love they take so seriously.
Scorpio: Mulberry WineGetty Images
Scorpios have a mysterious allure to them that we just can’t quite explain. They’re intense and are even said to be somewhat clairvoyant, which is why they must add the deep colour of mulberry wine to their wardrobe. This shade will keep people on alert – just the way Scorpios like it!
Sagittarius: SapphireGetty Images
Always ready to take on a new adventure, sapphire speaks to the soul of a Sagittarius. Ruled by Jupiter – the planet of luck, fortune, and success, it’s no shock that when a Sag wears this gem-inspired shade, they’ll be feeling extra lucky. Double the luck, double the style!
Capricorn: Cocoa PowderGetty Images
Capricorns value reliability and stability and are extremely hardworking. That’s why cocoa powder –a strong neutral shade– is perfect for them and will help them rack up achievements and get what they set their mind to.
Aquarius: Cashmere GreyGetty Images
Aquarians are unique and creative individuals who are often referred to as the “aliens” of the Zodiac. Sometimes they need a little help coming back down to Earth, which is why a simple yet sophisticated cashmere grey is their ideal shade. This colour allows them to play around with a subtle hue while their big personalities shine bright.
Pisces: Seafoam GreenGetty Images
This sea-inspired colour will make you feel right at home, Pisces! As a water sign who is ruled by Neptune, Pisces feel a lot, all the time, but their emotional temperament can be calmed by implementing seafoam green into their wardrobe and beauty routine. They’ll be the most stylish fish in the ocean.
Aries: Lipstick RedGetty Images
People born under the sign of Aries are ruled by Mars and are naturally fiery, passionate and confident. So, it comes as no surprise that this fire sign thrives best while wearing lipstick red – the colour of passion, confidence and bravery.
