There’s no denying it—everyone dreads when Mercury is in retrograde. Things just feel…off. And while you may be taking precautions in other areas of your life, chances are you’ve been overlooking how this astrological event can affect your beauty routine. Get ready to take notes, because we’re breaking down how to change your beauty routine—from your go-to makeup look to your daily skin care routine—when Mercury is in Retrograde, based on your sign. Because yes, your retrograde experience will differ depending on your zodiac sign!
You tend to be impulsive and quick-tempered, Aries. And while normally this is a good way to get what you need, it’s best to take things slow when Mercury is in retrograde. Take your time with your beauty routine this month by using a vitamin C serum. You won’t see instant results, but with the patience you should be embracing during this time, you’ll be able to reap the benefits. Try adding the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum to your daily regimen to help boost radiance and reduce wrinkles over time.
You’re used to being patient and reliable, Taurus, but this is not the case when Mercury is in retrograde. In fact, you may notice yourself becoming more impatient. This means your beauty routine calls for a product that’s fast and effective, like one of our one-minute daily deep conditioners! Take your pick from the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, or the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, all of which work in just one minute. How’s that for quick results?
Lucky for you, you’re pretty adaptable, Gemini. Even with Mercury in retrograde and the various obstacles that will likely come your way, you shouldn’t have an issue switching things up to fit the current situation in our solar system. As far as your beauty routine goes, be prepared for whatever comes your way by adding a water, sweat, and transfer-resistant foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight, into your daily makeup look. We promise you won’t regret it!
Let’s be honest, Cancer. You can be a bit overemotional, and when Mercury is in retrograde, this is taken to a whole new level. Prepare for any unexpected tears by wearing waterproof mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Waterproof Mascara Blackest Black.

You can be dogmatic and a bit pompous, Leo. You like when things go your way. Of course, when Mercury is in retrograde, things may not go as smoothly as you like. Plan your beauty routine thoroughly to avoid any mishaps by using a coordinating facial cleanser and face mask. If you have two products targeting the same skin care concerns, the results are more likely to go in your favor. Pair the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser with the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser with the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, or the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser with the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask.
You’re a perfectionist, Virgo, and when it comes to your beauty routine, you count on products you know you can rely on. When Mercury is in retrograde, your go-to products may not be working as well as they usually do. Conditioner not cutting it? A few times a week, swap it out for a hair mask like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask or the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask to ensure your strands stay looking their best.
Sometimes you can be easily influenced, Libra, and Mercury being in retrograde will have you gravitating toward new products you can add to your beauty routine. While change isn’t a bad thing, make sure you pay close attention as you stray from what you know. Swapping out your usual makeup products for something new? Just make sure to set your look with a setting spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray, so you can count on it to last all day.
While you’ll be in for some ups and downs of your own, Scorpio, your powerful and intuitive qualities will allow you to adapt to whatever comes your way while Mercury is in retrograde. Keep the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Precision Pen handy should any unwanted roots or grays make an appearance. This small, temporary gray concealer can touch up your hair color in just a few quick minutes—even on the go.
Your freedom-loving personality won’t be too happy while Mercury is in retrograde, Sagittarius. Mercury being in retrograde will take a toll on your schedule, so be sure to incorporate some multi-tasking beauty products into your daily routine in order to speed things up. Instead of using multiple moisturizing products, use the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm - Face/Neck/Chest/Hands to keep your face, neck, chest, and hands hydrated.
As someone who tends to be ambitious, you’ll have to take a step back while Mercury is in retrograde. Take a break from being a go-getter and invest in some beauty products that do the work for you. We’re talking heat-free hairstyling products. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to towel-dried strands, braid, and allow your hair to air dry. When your hair is dry, remove your braid to reveal effortless waves with minimal effort. Score!
Aquarius, when Mercury is in retrograde you can expect a number of setbacks in regards to your beauty routine. Luckily, your inventive and independent personality will allow you to quickly come up with alternate solutions anytime mishaps come your way. For those unfortunate situations, have the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Shake & Glow Dew Mist at the ready. With a quick spritz, this spray will awaken your complexion with a natural, dewy glow and refresh your makeup.
You’re usually intuitive, Pisces, but Mercury being in retrograde can throw this quality off. The skin care products you find yourself reaching for may not be the perfect match for your skin care concerns this month. Prepare for all circumstances by investing in a multi-masking kit, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Multi-Mask Clay Tripod Kit. Mercury, who?
