The stars are aligning just in time for back-to-school season. Yes, it’s hard to believe, but sadly or happily, depending on how you look at it, it’s almost time to pick up your books and pencils again. Considering this doesn’t sound super fun for most, amidst all your back-to-school shopping, you deserve a little treat. As you toss new notebooks and packs of colored pens into your cart, throw in one of the below new beauty products, based on your zodiac sign. To sweeten the deal, each beauty product below is a thoroughly tested, newly minted winner of a 2021 Elite Daily Glow Beauty Award.

In September, Jupiter’s energy will be hitting all the signs hard. You’ll feel powerful, creative, and independent — not a bad way to start the school year. At the beginning of the month, Mars and Neptune will be opposite one another in Virgo and Pisces, respectfully. This means that your desire to dream and fantasize could create some tension with your drive to complete tasks. Story of your life, right? Treating yourself to one of the below newest beauty products, however, will allow you to create some self-care time for all your dreaming and leave you refreshed and ready to tackle everything on your to-do list.

Now that you have a general sense what the stars will bring you this Virgo season, let’s talk your little beauty present, shall we? As a Taurus, I find myself to be an ideal picker of treat-yourself products. So, sit back, relax, and see what this new season will bring your sign both from the stars and from the beauty shop.

Virgo:

Virgos generally love to be meticulous, and messy notes can blow up a perfectionist’s dream pretty quickly — as can a chipped mani. So, when everything feels like its falling apart, you can take a step back and treat yourself to a manicure with JINsoon’s Palma before you settle in for a long night of typing up your notes and study guides in perfect order.

07

Libra:

It’s made with omega fatty acids, so your skin’s moisture barrier while remain in harmony while you’re looking rosy as can be.

Nothing goes better with your perfectly arched eyebrow than a sharp eyeliner wing.

The most driven, ambitious, and determined zodiac sign is decidedly Capricorn.

Lean into your eccentric side — don’t fight it.

The multi-chrome, high impact Twin Flames liquid eyeshadows from Danessa Myricks Beauty have an ethereal, bold quality no Aquarius will be able to resist.

Pisces:

Give what’s on your head as much attention as what’s in it.

Pisces are constantly torn between their fantastical ideals and the harshness of reality, which Neptune and Mars’ opposition will only aggravate, especially so since Pisces is ruled by Neptune. If you find yourself needing to slip away to your inner world for a bit, here’s what to do: Take a break, place your feet firmly on the ground in the shower, and massage your scalp with Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Scalp Scrub to ensure you’re giving your physical body the same attention you’re giving your thoughts.

It may or may not be *actually* written in the stars, but your back-to-school cart is begging for you to add one of these treats to your everyday routine.
