It's officially Sagittarius season -- so, what are the best beauty buys for the Sag in your life? We talked to New Orleans psychic Cari Roy to help illuminate the gift giving process for this particular sign, and you'll find that her insights are quite helpful when you're at a loss for what to gift your favorite fire sign. For one, stick to animal friendly products. "They love animals, things that are organic and things that are cruelty-free," explains Roy.
And of course, loving animals goes hand in hand with loving the outdoors. As such, Roy says "green, woodsy and fresh" scents are a safe bet. Also, because "Sagittarians tend to prefer a natural look," you might want to gravitate towards more no-makeup makeup looks and products.
With all that in mind, we've put together a little gift guide featuring a handful of our favorite products for the Sagittarians in your life -- whether it's for you or your BFF.
Kat Von D Farm Sanctuary Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, $20
Since Roy recommends "anything that has to do with a love of animals" for ethics-loving Sagittarius, you pretty much can't go wrong with the Kat Von D Farm Sanctuary Everlasting Liquid Lipstick: They combine the cult favorite (and vegan) KVD liquid lipstick formula with animal advocacy -- and some seriously cute packaging. A substantial 20 percent of the retail price of each lipstick will go towards nonprofit organization Farm Sanctuary -- win-win, right?
Along those adorable-meets-philanthropic lines, you might also want to check out the buzzy new Too Faced Clover Eyeshadow Palette. It's filled to the brim with cheery bright shades, and the tin is at the maximum level of cute (even by Too Faced's high standards in that area). Plus, as with the Kat Von D Farm Sanctuary Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, it actually benefits animals: To celebrate the palette's launch, Too Faced donated $250,000 to Best Friends Animal Society.
Here's another great pick for a Sagittarian: the Alba 1913 Galenic Daily Hand Cream is made without artificial fragrances and artificial fragrances -- and it isn't tested on animals. The Polish brand is still relatively new to the U.S., and their hand cream is quite a find -- it's about as richly moisturizing as they come, and it absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue.
Since "something woodsy-scented" will set your favorite Sagittarius' fresh-air-loving heart aflutter, you pretty much can't go wrong with Aesop Hwyl Eau De Parfum. Scented like a hinoki forest (hinoki is a type of Japanese cypress, often used to make incense), Aesop Hwyl has a dark, woody aroma. And come on, who doesn't want to be transported to a remote Japanese forest with a single spritz?
