Makeup artist Setareh Hosseini created 12 stunning makeup looks complementing the signs of the zodiac, from Aries to Pisces, posting them on Instagram complete with captions of the qualities that inspired each look. They're a stunning blend of literal and figurative interpretation -- a bright red lip for Cancer; a plump pucker for Pisces; a half-and-half look for Gemini -- and though they may be too dramatic for daily wear, you just might find attributes to copy (think dark lashes, just the right amount of shimmer, and creative hair).

    "She's a mad scientist in her lab, inventing and creating night and day. Her rapid influx of thoughts and subsequent surprising actions make her unpredictable and rebellious. Anarchy is her specialty. Forever fighting valiantly for the soul of the world, she pours forth her wisdom and equilibrates your mind. She is dazzling and terrifying; those words are not as removed from one another as you may think. Always seeing a thin line between genius and insanity. She lives in the future and who she is comes in waves. ♒️ #AQUARIUS" - @starlit_makeup

    "Ethereal, and deeply mysterious. Her mind swims at a depth most would drown in. She's always floating in opposite directions, this represents her soul's duality. She is the ultimate enchantress & her heart is an ocean of emotion; always dreaming of realms that only she may enter. ♓️ #PISCES" - @starlit_makeup

    "Recognized by her contradictory nature, her mind is always alternating between logic and absurdity. She's a combination of high intelligence, wit, and eloquence.

    "She is the tide, the gentle glow of the moon, the waves crashing on the shore. She feels everything deeply, even though she doesn't like to show it. Her shell may be hard and at times unbreakable but it is forever guarding her tender soul. Surely it is harder to break something soft rather than rigid. You touch her and she is far more real than anything you have ever felt before. Cosmic particles of moon dust line her veins. For she is like the moon, you'll see her with a new face everyday. ♋️ #CANCER" - @starlit_makeup

    "You can usually pick her out from a crowd – she’s the one with the loudest laugh, the brightest smile, and the most confident strut of them all. Her hair is a mane made of gold, and her skin glows like a sunset. She is an alpha, a lioness, a leader and a warrior. She may appear soft like a daydream, but she has a never ending inferno burning inside her. ♌️ #LEO" - @starlit_makeup

    "It's all in her penetrating stare. Dark and calculating, her eyes are foreboding yet hypnotic. Powerful, passionate and intuitive.
