We all need as much luck as we can get this Chinese New year. Fend off the negative vibes with our auspicious colour list this year of the pig. Stick to this colour palette and Chinese New Year luck might just be round the corner!
Blue – Rooster/Monkey/Ox/Dog/Goat
Blue is the perfect cool toned colour for those who are afraid of red this Chinese New Year. For those veering toward a more mild look, try blue for your eyeliner and add that tinge of horoscope magic in your makeup look.
We recommend this lovely beauty by Natasha Denona. The perfect blend of sparkle and vibrance, this eyeliner is sure to be the star of your CNY OOTD. Try it out for some extra glitz this Chinese New Year and watch your luck roll in!
Pink – Rat/Rabbit
Pink is an extremely versatile colour that suits any skin tone. With a variety of shades to choose from, pink adds that tinge of girly or edge to any makeup look.
For a subtle pinkish nude we recommend our girl Kat Von D. Though the formula may be a little drying, it springs to life with a little lip balm applied first on the lip. Pair this with natural eyelashes extensions and a strong cat eye for a balanced and chic look.
Silver – Horse/Tiger/Dragon
Silver highlighter is a great way to bring a slight edge to your Chinese New Year beauty look. Great for fairer skin tones, silver often comes off as mere shine and can add an iridescent quality to your overall look. Our favourite part about adding silver highlight is that it adds a touch of glam without much effort at all!
This miracle product is a hybrid of cream and powder. It adds the perfect touch of sparkle to any cheek and can be applied over foundation. Our Beauty Insider tip is to use this on the inner corners of your eyes. Borrowed from the K-Pop world, this tip helps your eyes pop without any makeup.
Yellow – Snake/Pig
Not for the faint hearted, yellow can be the perfect touch of shine on your lids. We love how it brings out the yellow tones in Asian skin without overpowering the complexion.
This matte masterpiece is the perfect buildable coverage for your eyelids. We love pairing this with a no eyeliner and enough mascara to touch the heavens!
