DIY Birthday Box for Beauty-Loving Aquarians


When they aren’t inventing a life-saving gadget or supporting philanthropic causes, your Aquarian friend is always there to help, share advice, or talk on the phone with you for hours on end. In honor of Aquarius season, shower this forward-thinking air sign with gifts that reflect their personality and ignite their trend-setting tendencies.

I’ve rounded up 5 Aquarius-friendly gifts that embody the main characteristics of this powerful zodiac sign. Place all five within a cute package for a fun birthday unwrapping!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost, “Uranus”, $29

According to astrological literature, Uranus endowed Aquarius-born individuals with a humanitarian personality and visionary way of thinking. This year, give Aquarians a gift that honors their ruling planet! Jeffree Star’s Skin Frost in Uranus highlights the face and body with pale gold warmth that can go from a multidimensional glow to head-turning shine. I love how this limited edition powder is stamped with the celestial body surrounded by stars to reinforce the Aquarian belief that the universe is a galaxy of possibilities.

Inglot Cosmetics O2M Breathable Nail Enamel in 665, $17

Zodiac signs are organized into four categories based on element: water, earth, air, and fire. Aquarius belongs to the action-oriented air signs, along with Gemini and Libra. Aquarians can be likened to a strong wind of positive change—they’re all about keeping life fresh, innovative, and liberated from limitation. That’s why breathable nail polish in a whimsical shade is the perfect gift for this free-spirited sign! Inglot Cosmetics O2M Nail Enamel allows oxygen to pass through the polish, so fingertips can get the airflow needed to maintain proper nail health. This inventive formula coupled with the bright aqua color of shade 665 pays tribute to water bearers keeping them energized and inspired as they continue to push boundaries.

Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray, $14

Aquarius is a fixed sign, known for possessing control, rationality and reliability. Aquarians are always there for you when you need help without overreacting or coming off as overbearing. Forever calm and collected, this air sign deserves a beauty product that keeps their makeup just as cool as they are. Skindinavia’s The Makeup Primer Spray offers a lightweight, breathable formula for smooth makeup application and heat regulation. Formulated with patented temperature control technology, this meltdown-proof primer draws heat away from skin to keep makeup fresh and cool.

Indie Lee Bath Soak, $28

If you have Aquarian friends or family members, you’re most likely familiar with their energetic nature. They’re constantly creating, travelling and socializing to keep their mind sharp. They love having imaginative conversations, and it’s not uncommon to talk to an Aquarius-born for hours, bouncing from topic to topic. As much as they crave mental stimulation, Aquarians need periods of peace and quiet to restore strength depleted from their highly active lifestyles. I love how this Indie Lee Bath Soak features a refreshing blend of sea salts with an uplifting citrus scent to detoxify skin and renew overworked muscles.

By Terry Sun Designer Palette, $55

By Terry’s Sun Designer Palette is my favorite makeup manifestation of Aquarian characteristics. To me, its interior design resembles the Water Bearer symbol, which represents the life-giving energy Aquarius offers. The finely-milled powders deliver an airy glow bursting with vibrant color for a fresh flush or bold contour to match this air sign’s effortlessly striking personality. The curious Aquarian in your life might create a variety of eye-popping shadow looks with the blush, highlight and contour shades. To them, the possibilities are endless!
