Get inspired by these Lunar New Year-themed beauty looks

1. Smokey Red

Match your make-up to your red Chinese New Year outfits by playing with different shades of the auspicious colour, from bright scarlet to earthy burgundy. 

Tatler Tip: Cream and pencil products are the way to go because it's easier to control the intensity of the colour and transition from a casual pop of colour in the morning to alluring smokey eyes at night.

2. Peachy Cheeks

One of the biggest trend on TikTok's sister app, Douyin, right now is to brighten the face with peachy and salmon pink shades on the cheeks. Differing from trends in the West, Douyin users prefer blush on a lower part of the face, below the apple of the cheeks for the full youthful effect.
