It's totally cliché–but with a new year comes the opportunity for a whole new you.
2018 was all about discovering who you are and planting the seeds for who you want to be, while 2019's focus is about watching those seeds grow.
And what easier way to hit the ground running than switching things up in the beauty department? Below, we've put together your 2019 New Year's beauty resolution based on your zodiac sign:
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Try a Softer Look
Aries are known for being bold and dramatic. Sure you love standing out, but there's beauty in subtlety, too, little Ram. Instead of reaching for your typical bold red lip or signature cat eye, use the new year to embrace a softer look with blushy neutrals for effortless, off-duty beauty. You might be surprised just how many heads you'll turn.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Make More Clean Beauty Swaps
Taurus, you can't deny that you love a little luxury, right? Especially when it comes to indulging in fancy beauty products like designer foundations and pricey lipsticks. But as an earth sign, you've been itching to clean up your act—and by act, we mean your beauty routine that's probably littered with ingredients that are not-so-safe for you and the environment. Lead the movement in your inner circle and use 2019 as the opportunity to make some major clean beauty swaps. You will be shocked at some of the product gems you'll discover!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): (Finally) Get the Bold New Haircut
It's no secret that good ol' Geminis have a tough time making decisions. Your dueling personalities tend to get in the way of you making major changes to your look. But 2019 is all about transformation for you, so get that major haircut you've been eyeing for a while—be it bangs or a big chop—it's sure to look great on you.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Clean Out the Beauty Products You've Been Holding Onto
Sentimental cancers love to reminisce, and tend to hold onto things that bring them happy memories or joy. Now we're not calling you a pack rat, but we think you'd also agree that your beauty arsenal could use a major cleanout. You tend to think about the "what ifs" when getting rid of things, but trust us, you'll feel a whole lot lighter and clear-headed if you slim your cabinet down to just the essentials.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Tell Your Bestie She Looks Pretty
Leos are born to shne, and tend to get a lot of attention by nature. You can't help that you've got that charm and charisma for days! Leos are also naturally confident—heck you're a lion—but you can inadvertently make your friends closest to you feel insecure. For 2019, focus on making others around you feel strong and beautiful, too. There's power in numbers, so the more strong women you can rally by your side, the stronger you'll be. Start by giving your bestie a compliment when she's lookin' good, and be willing to share that spotlight a little, too.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept 22): Have More Fun With Your Beauty Routine
Virgo babes always have everything dialed in, even down to their hair and makeup. Organized, analytical and always planned in advanced, your beauty routine can sometimes be more of a chore than it is fun. But that's the thing, beauty can and should be fun. Now we know you love your go-to soft brown shadow and neutral lip, but try experimenting with those standout shades in your palette that are totally untouched, or follow that hair tutorial to try a different bend. For you, 2019 is all about having more fun and coloring outside the lines a little bit.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Try a Controversial Look
Libras are all about playing things (relatively) safe and not tipping the scales. After all, you're a sign that's all about harmony and balance. But even you've had the urge lately to try out less conventional trends, like electric blue eyeliner, yellow eyeshadow or even glitter eyebrows. But you've never dared to act on impulse, for fear of getting less than satisfactory reviews. Let 2019 be the year you do things for you and less for others. You might be shocked at how good it feels, and how much you dig the new, more adventurous you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): No Makeup Makeup
Scorpio gals love the drama, and you don't discriminate. You'll take friend drama, makeup drama, family drama… you oddly love being wrapped up in the mix. Try and lessen the load in one aspect of your life in 2019: your beauty look. Say bye bye to the smokey eye and hello to a fresh no makeup makeup look. Heck, you might look and feel so good, the other drama might fizzle out, too.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Get Organized
Having a Sagittarius around is always the sign of good times ahead. You've got that free-spirited, bohemian attitude that people are totally drawn to. But on the downside, you're usually having too much fun exploring and hanging with friends to keep your things organized, especially your makeup and your makeup bag. Carve out a little time at the start of the new year to get things organized and make a pact with yourself to keep it that way.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Get Yourself a Spa Day
You've been working hard, dear Cap, and it's not going unnoticed. But it's up to you to take the time off and celebrate all the progress you've made so far. While you're not one to put a ton of emphasis on getting glam on your off days, you do deserve some pampering, and there's no better way to charge up for another big year of making moves than with a spa day. Grab your mom, sister, or BFF and plan a day where you can really unwind.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): A New Daring Lip or Eye Shade
Our big thinkers of the world, Aquarius ladies are powerful movers and shakers who aren't afraid to take risks. You have a steady arsenal of daring makeup shades on rotation, and you don't shy away from any bold look, though you rarely follow trends. In order to keep your wandering mind interested, pick a totally unexpected shade, like a deep blue or violet.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Be More Confident
As an introverted Pisces, you tend to feel most confident holed up in your room reading books, creating a cool playlist or scouring tumblr for your next side project. But when it comes to walking the school halls, that confidence can quickly fade, fast. Walk into 2019 with your head held high and just watch how many new suitors you attract. Nothing is more beautiful than being confident!
'Tis the season for change! And speaking of this time of year, HERE's what you think of winter, based on your zodiac sign.
