Published Sep 23, 2019
When they aren’t advocating for social justice or pioneering the next beauty craze, you can always count on your Libran friend to keep you balanced and support you in all that you do! In honor of Libra season, shower the trendsetting charmers of the zodiac with a box full of clever gifts that reflect their personality.
I’ve rounded up 5 Libra-friendly gifts that embody the main characteristics of this charismatic zodiac sign. Place all five within a cute package for a fun birthday unwrapping!
As members of the group of air signs and cardinal signs within the zodiac, Libras are natural born leaders with strong communication skills. Represented by the symbol of perfectly balanced scales, Libras are concerned with justice, fairness, and truthfulness. This levelheaded air sign is one of the most diplomatic of the zodiac, approaching all decisions with empathy and open-mindedness. Whenever there’s a problem, allow these peacemakers to intervene, see both sides of the story, and stabilize the situation. So, it’s only fitting that you gift this even-keeled air sign a facial toner that mimics their balanced approach to life. Boscia’s Balancing Facial Tonic rebalances skin’s pH levels to create a soft and hydrated foundation for maximum product absorption.
Easy-going Libras can literally get along with anyone, making them one of the friendliest zodiac signs. As expert conversationalists, Librans can light up a room with clever and captivating banter. Their charismatic personality attracts more friends than they can keep track of, so be sure to remind the Libra in your life who holds the title of #1 BFF. BECCA’s Ultimate Lip Definer in Charming is named after one of Libra’s most prominent traits and provides waterproof, smudge-proof color with 8-hour staying power.
Much like their free-spirited personality, a Libra’s creativity can’t be tamed. These trailblazing air signs think outside the box making them trendsetters in all that they do—especially in the realms of art and beauty. In fact, Libras are ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty! It’s not uncommon for them to achieve recognition as fashion icons, famous artists and of course, beauty influencers! So, gift the makeup guru in your life a golden eye shadow palette that’s earned a cult following amongst professional MUAs. The Petit Pro Palette in Soleil features a travel-friendly collection of triple-milled pigments in a variety of finishes, so Librans can create unique looks that everyone will want to copy.
According to astrological literature, Libra’s ruling planet also informs their peaceful and loving nature. While Librans aren’t ones to engage in conflict, they are willing to mediate and restore harmony. If you have Libra friends, you’re familiar with their calming aura that makes you feel like everything’s going to be okay. This year, make sure you give these peacekeeping air signs a gift that gives them the same happy glow that you get when you’re in their presence. Sulwhasoo’s Radiance Blusher delivers a harmonious blend of soft-focus blush and highlighter shades for a healthy-looking flush.
The party doesn’t start until a Libra walks in the room. These social butterflies basically invented fun and are usually the heartbeat of any event. Lively Libras happily take on the role of host and they’re known for throwing unforgettably lavish events. Just expect that when this air sign gets to party planning, there’s going to be some 24K magic in the air (à la fellow Libra, Bruno Mars). This year, make sure that your friend’s gift is just as extraordinary as the legendary birthday bash that’s in the works. The BECCA Party Popper Lipstick Kit is a trio of botanical oil-enriched lipstick that lasts for a full eight hours, so your Libra friend can focus on keeping the party poppin’ without having to reapply!
