How to Keep Mercury Retrograde From F*cking Up Your Beauty Routine
An Aries, Leo, and Capricorn walk into a bar.
The Aries shamelessly hits on the bartender, effectively taking all the attention away from the Leo (who, obviously, is trying to order the $38 glass of cabernet sauvignon). But, while the Capricorn has calculated that the situation could implode in 2.5 minutes, the night seems to go off without a hitch.
Had the scenario played out while Mercury were in Retrograde, however, and things might look entirely different — which is exactly how you should think of your beauty routine from July 26 through August 19, regardless of your sign. Like the AstroTwins Tali and Ophira Edut told POPSUGAR: "Mercury in Retrograde is all about messing up people's schedules, so be sure to leave yourself enough time for appointments and come prepared."
Luckily, you needn't stumble over your astrological to-dos. The AstroTwins teamed up with popular nail brand Essie to deliver your updated beauty horoscope for the summer — and offered a few fun tips on looking good while getting through the trying times. Better to be prepared than drunk, no?
