Whether it’s for the charming Gemini or the rule following Capricorn, these beauty buys are guaranteed to impress this holiday season.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The Hydraluron Moisture Jelly from Indeed Labs is perfect for the Cancer, who tends to be more intuitive and emotional. The jelly moisturizer adds a protective layer of hydration to the skin, much like the walls the water sign may put up to protect themselves.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Because Capricorns tend to be more traditional, their glam moments usually go that way as well. The Liquid Eye-Lie-Ner from Haus Labs will let the earth sign attain a classic eye liner moment. Plus, it’s long-lasting and smudge-proof, which is something the rule-follower will love.
