Products To Make You Smile This July
21 July 2021
Well, we’re over halfway through the year and the Smile Edit beauty picks are hotting up. Yes, July is the 7th month of the year and is typically the warmest month for those in the Northern Hemisphere… although we’re not sure that the UK always gets the memo with regards to providing sunshine!
The month of July is arguably the month for taking a moment out with some Summer glossies, and what’s a glossy without a crossword and a horoscope or two? Horoscopes are a guilty pleasure at allbeautyHQ – and if you were born in July, this next paragraph is especially for you.
July beauties, your star sign will either be a Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd) or a Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd). Cancer is a water sign represented by the crab, and these star signs are said to be famed for their versatile ability to control emotions. Famous celebrities with this star sign include Meryl Streep, Lana Del Rey, Tom Hanks and Ariana Grande. Step aside, meanwhile, for the Leos – these star signs are typically very theatrical and ruled by the dazzling light of the sun. Famous Leos include Jennifer Lopez, Shawn Mendes, Mick Jagger and Jason Momoa. Now that’s some star power!
Another favourite summer pastime from Summer days gone by in seaside gift shops is picking out a friendship bracelet or gemstone ring corresponding to your birth month. When it comes to gemstones, July beauties will be pleased to note that they can lay claim to one of the most beautiful gems of all – the Ruby. And an honourable mention here goes out to one of our coveted fragrances at allbeauty – Michael Kors Ruby.
Take a look at this month’s Smile Edit and you might just find that sparkling Summer feeling quicker than you can say the word SUNSHINE.
