Chinese New Year Makeup

Today is Chinese New Year, it’s the start of a brand spanking new year for us Chinese people lol. It’s going to be Year of the Snake. People born on a snake year are said to be intelligent and wise. Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar, so every year New Year’s day falls on a different day. Luckily, this year it fell on a weekend! Past years have been quite tiring staying up late and then going to work the next day. Today I wanted to share my makeup look I have on for the holidays.
Chinese new year makeup look Colours associated with Chinese New Year are red and gold which symbolises happiness and wealth. For my eye makeup, I used both red and gold eyeshadows. The photos didn’t capture the red shadow I was using and it ended up looking kind of bronzy. Chinese new year makeup look
For some reason, every time I’m not wearing glasses my face looks and feels naked. So I also took a photo with my new glasses on lol.Chinese new year makeup look

      Saera! I was kinda scared of red eyeshadow too but then I made sure I used very minimal. I was scared I’d end up looking like I got in a fist fight lol It’s so funny when I wear those glasses. It’s so big, when I smile the frame touches my cheeks.

    Happy CNY, Kerri! You look lovely! I think you’re just not used to looking at yourself without glasses on (I was like that initially)!

    Loving that red lip on you!

      Nalini! You wear glasses? I wish I could wear contacts everyday, my eyes are too dry so once in a while I can wear them.

    happy lunar new years! btw, you look just fine without glasses. i think your just too used to know u look with glasses on. i used to have this problem a long time ago until i started wearing contacts 24/7. haha but now im back to glasses again cuz my eye doctor yelled at me.

    you look great! i love the look, its not too much but still looks gorgeous. perfect for the new years. love the red!
