It is currently the age of Aquarius. Those with this sign tend to be the most eccentric of all the zodiac signs. They love to be original and independent. An air sign, the Aquarius is known for bringing water. The fluidity of air and water, like the Aquarian, is always adaptable.

During this time of the year we stumbled upon a new find, so pure, it could be compared to air or water. S.W. Basics products can now be found on shelves in Target stores all over the U.S. This is a huge change from the traditional products sold at stores like Target. The price tag is not cheap, but the quality is worth it. Their ingredients are extremely simple . Each bottle boldly displays the number of ingredients in the product. Some are so pure, they’re even edible! Our favorites by far are the Cream, which consists merely of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and Olive Oil and the Makeup Remover made up of only Almond Oil, Olive Oil and Jojoba Oil. The Cream is hands down the best moisturizer we have ever used! And did we mention, it’s all organic?

We’ve just cracked the seal on this brand, but are excited to try their growing list of products, including natural exfoliants, dried aloe, and serums.

Our model champions water while being a breath of fresh air. We livened her makeup with pigments from Adorn Cosmetics in Allure, Citrine Orange, Clarity, and Kyanite. We also used mineral colors from Honeybee Gardens in Castaway, Rendezvous, Tryst, and Wicked.


2017 may be a bit more serious for Aquarius. Relationships might be getting more serious, and it may be time to start focusing more on work. You may not have your usual energy levels this year, so try new exercises, and meet new people to keep things exciting.
