No matter how you feel about the Zodiac and all it’s many controversies and significances, there is one thing I found to be true. I am a typical cancer moon child. I was born on July 3rd so I'm smack in the middle of this wondrous zodiac sign.
The Cancer symbol is a crab and it is a water sign ruled by the moon. The ebb and flow of a lagoon has always drawn me in. The light of the moon has always fascinated me. The ocean of emotion has been my home as long as I can remember. The soft lullaby of waves lapping the sands is comforting to me in inexplicable ways.
I’ve always felt like a mermaid, and not because I don’t have a thigh gap (thick thighs save lives). I just always loved the sea. No, I don't want to drown in it or even be covered in salt water, but there is something magical about laying on the beach, soaking in the sun and the scent of salt water caressing my beach curls. And the moon’s majesty is romantic in ways I’ll never be able to explain. It’s soothing. It calls my soul from fathomless depths.
So I wanted to share three makeup inspiration pics I’ve found that reflect my thoughts about this sun sign. These looks range from natural to total glam. Enjoy!
This everyday look is perfect for running around town and running errands. It's also a great look for when you want to get out of the house quickly. Simply dab a bit of silver in the inner corners of your eyes and you're pretty much set. No special effects required!
Got a little more time to primp? Smokey eyes are always a win! Silver is the highlight again, but this time, glam it up with warm tones on the upper lids and contour with two shades darker than your natural skin. Don't forget that nude lippie to polish the look!
This third look is a bit more progressive. Contour with red, instead of tanned skin tones and add pearls in fun places. Plus, that red matte lip will always bring spice to the game. We Cancers LOVE to spice things up when you least expect it!
