Star Sign Makeup & Skincare Guide: Leo

Nobility, drama, warmth. It should be the easiest thing in the world to recognise a Leo (23 July – 22 August) from out of a crowd. Sometimes it is. When the Leo energy gets its proper leeway, in a confident person, then there are seldom any doubts. Just take model Jourdan Dunn (main photo) as a prime example. However, things are not so simple in reality, unfortunately. There is evidence that many people with heavily Lion-dominated horoscopes, (say the Sun and several planets, or the Sun and Moon in Leo) come off as a bit shy or reserved. The same is frequently true when other fire signs are strongly marked in the horoscope. You can be sure, however, that in such cases something is holding these people back. Typically, the Leo woman is a dramatic, self-exposing, self-centred and highly flamboyant sign.

The Physical Traits Of A Leo Woman

Just like a proud lion, the majestic Leo has a commanding and dignifying presence. Think of model Winnie Harlow as a fine example of a Leo woman.

Most Leos have cat-like characteristics, especially in the face, which is wider than most other star signs. She generally has dark brown eyes, often large and round in shape, but slightly tilted at the corner.  She often has a button nose,  and smallish ears and she usually has good skin with a golden tint.

These heavenly physical characteristics are generally all topped off with a envious mane of hair.

Leo Makeup Tips

Leo woman have the prime advantage over other star signs with their cat-like eyes, even when they are not wearing makeup. Make the most of this asset with a cat-eye eyeliner. Further magnify the eyes with false eyelashes – animal cruelty-free of course, such as silk eyelashes. Be sure to choose your correct shade of foundation and powder. Bring out the natural glow of your skin with the use of bronzers on the cheekbones.

Needless to say, the fire sign looks great in fiery reds, orange hues, shades of yellow, and gold. Bold red lips are striking on the Leo woman, alternatively go for a nude shade.

Leo Skin Care Tips

The Leo woman is likely to have the most luxurious skincare products in her boudoir but she must ensure not to break the bank by buying into the latest beauty fad.

Since Leo women are rules by the sun, the fire sign is prone to dry skin. Keep yourself well moisturised.
