9 Beauty Gifts For Gemini, Straight From An Astrologer | Good + Good
ICYMI, Gemini season is in full swing, ringing in the early summer with much-needed playful energy and light, airy vibe. From May 21 to June 20, it’s birthday season for twins galore, which begs the question: what else could you get your talkative, always-on-the-go Gemini friends and family? Especially if they love everything that is beautiful?
Fortunately, Brooklyn-based astrologer and intuitive psychic coach, Alex Caiola, is here to help. She explains that twins are generally playful and curious types who like to socialize and learn. Their natural charisma makes them excellent hosts who can quickly charm new friends and acquaintances with witty icebreakers and fun facts, as they know a little about a lot of topics. “Geminis are the life of the parties, but they’ll also fill their schedules, spreading themselves too thin, making it difficult to ‘do it all,'” Caiola explains. “This is where they can get a bad reputation for being fickle or fickle.”
Their busy schedules tend to mean that their personal care slips. While many Cancers or Pisces have no problem skipping the party (and the after party and the after, after party…), Gemini wants to wrap it all up, often putting self-care on the back burner. Luckily, it’s a perfect excuse to celebrate his birthday with a beauty or skincare gift that will give him a little boost, even when he’s on the go.
“Geminis love having a quick, easy, and adaptable routine,” says Caiola. “They’re totally open to going where the wind blows them, so they need a routine that can keep up with them. That said, sample sizes or variety packs work really well so they can try out different products. and keep things interesting. They’re also always talking and laughing, so a fun set of lip glosses would be perfect for them.”
Like their big, dynamic personalities, look for products that stand out aesthetically. Bright colors, seductive scents, beautiful packaging – buy gifts with charisma that will charm them as soon as they tear open the gift wrap.
And, unsurprisingly, multitaskers will also win their hearts. “As twins, they also like products that do two things at once. I don’t see them as totally adhering to one brand or flagship product, unless they have very specific skin concerns. “, says Caiola. “They like to play in life, so of course that reflects on their skin and their beauty.”
