Setareh Hosseini is a makeup artist whose Instagram feed is full of amazing and complex looks, including some impressively-creepy special effects skeletons and gory monsters. However, her makeup looks inspired by the twelve signs of the zodiac are where it’s really at (in my humble opinion).
From a nautical-inspired Pisces, to a purrr-fectly feline Leo, Hosseini’s makeup is just the sort of inspiration we all need to unlock our inner celestial beings … or, you know, just go to the club.
While some of these makeup looks might be a tad dramatic for daytime wear (although I’m not judging — you do you, girl), they’re certainly a fun jumping-off point for considering how to incorporate your zodiac into your makeup look.
A dreamy look that’s perfect for the progressive-minded air sign. And who could resist that killer shoulder strobing?
She's a mad scientist in her lab, inventing and creating night and day. Her rapid influx of thoughts and subsequent surprising actions make her unpredictable and rebellious. Anarchy is her specialty. Forever fighting valiantly for the soul of the world, she pours forth her wisdom and equilibrates your mind. She is dazzling and terrifying; those words are not as removed from one another as you may think. Always seeing a thin line between genius and insanity. She lives in the future and who she is comes in waves. ♒️ #AQUARIUS
This look will make you feel like a real-life mermaid. Who knew with faux fish scales could be so glamorous??
This dark, matte lip paired with a smokey cat-eye and septum piercing is serious #Style Goals.
Uncompromisingly stubborn with a strong willed character, great perseverance and determination. She has a hot and fiery temper, and will unleash it when pushed to her limits. Even so, she loves anything that excites her senses. Controlled by inner serenity and a powerful sense of stability, she is & always will be a force to be reckoned with. ♉️ #TAURUS
Nobody can look at this bright and cheery Aries look without smiling (or pining for that nude lipstick).
It’s like the most beautiful version of Two-Face that’s ever existed! This let’s you indulge both sides of you personality at once — because it’s so hard to choose sometimes.
Recognized by her contradictory nature, her mind is always alternating between logic and absurdity. She's a combination of high intelligence, wit, and eloquence. Forever battling mystical forces of left and right; she'll mirror your best and worst parts and show you things you never knew you needed to see. ♊️ #GEMINI
This vibrant makeup look is inspired by Cancer’s hard shell and fiery temper (with splashes of bold red), as well as their softer side (courtesy of some artfully-placed body pearls).
She is the tide, the gentle glow of the moon, the waves crashing on the shore. She feels everything deeply, even though she doesn't like to show it. Her shell may be hard and at times unbreakable but it is forever guarding her tender soul. Surely it is harder to break something soft rather than rigid. You touch her and she is far more real than anything you have ever felt before. Cosmic particles of moon dust line her veins. For she is like the moon, you'll see her with a new face everyday. ♋️ #CANCER
This very feline look gets some playfulness, courtesy of fake freckles and a serious power brow. Very attention-grabbing — just like Leo.
You can usually pick her out from a crowd – she’s the one with the loudest laugh, the brightest smile, and the most confident strut of them all. Her hair is a mane made of gold, and her skin glows like a sunset. She is an alpha, a lioness, a leader and a warrior. She may appear soft like a daydream, but she has a never ending inferno burning inside her. ♌️ #LEO
This fairy-like makeup has an earthy touch that speaks directly to Virgo’s true, innocent nature, while the sharp lines are influenced by their love of all things calculated and precise.
She personifies innocence, purity and justice. Her earthly nature makes her exceedingly clever and analytical. All that is beautiful to her erupts in subtle, though magnificent spectacle. She's a maiden & belongs to the pristine; always striving to bring order out of chaos. ♍️ #VIRGO #zodiac #makeup #mua
Just like any Libra, this makeup look loves balance — there’s perfect symmetry on both sides of the face. Plus, any member of this aesthetically-inclined air sign is bound to love that pop of blue eyeshadow.
This dark and dramatic look is perfect for any Scorpio lady, because it definitely lets people know not to f*ck with you.
This look is almost 80’s-inspired, which makes it strangely fitting for light-hearted and adventurous Sagittarius.
Earthy, shimmery, and unapologetic AF — yep, this makeup is definitely fit for a Capricorn.
