Friday Night Out: Chinese New Year Make Up

Bonjour tout le monde!

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! We, Albert and Mechele wish you a prosperous year this year as well. May your wealth come to fill a hall. May you realize your ambition. Greet New Year and encounter happiness. 

This is the year of the horse according to Chinese Zodiac. To keep up with the theme, we present you an earth tone makeup. It is modest, gives you a younger overall look and compliment with almost any typpe of clothes. So if you are celebrating the Chinese New Year in a casual clothes but change it into party dress for night, there'll be no problem for you!

So, without further ado, let's take a look. 

Hey there!

Start off with applying a base eyeshadow all over your lids. Make sure to choose a warm color, this will make your overal eye makeup to be warm and neutral. Apply shimmering silver eye shadow, or whatever color you would prefer, on the half corner of the eyes. This color will brighten your look and make you appear fresher and brighter.

Apply soft brown color on the outer side of your eyes. Not only this will strengthen the warm vibe, but also slightly contour your eyes.

With your grey eyeshadow, or black if you prefer more intense look, make a cat eye shape. It doesn't have to be perfect since we will blend it all over. But just try to make it as balance as posible to reduce any unnecessary effort hehe.

Blend the grey eyeshadow until it left this hazy effect. Reapply the brown eyeshadow. Makeup is all about making slightly different with little bit effort little by little. Layering is one of the biggest strength to achieve the perfect look. Line your eyes with eye liner.

We keep layering the eyeshadow to achieve the vividness we want. As you could see, the color is much more vivid right now. Always use the brighter eyeshadow on the center of your eyelids. This will brighten your overal look, gives more dimension and balance. Use the highlighting color on the corner of your eyes.

This is where the magic happen. Dab a cotton swab in the makeup remover, and swap it to make an eyecat shape. This little action will change your whole look into a more mature overall. Doing this method is much more easier than trying to keep it in shape from the start. 

If you like more drama, apply fake eyelashes. Chinese New Year will definitely include a bunch of photo session, so you will want to make sure picture perfect face. Curl your lashes and apply mascara. Don't forget to coat your bottom lashes too to balance the look! Hehe.

The rest of the make up is definitely up to your liking. The eye makeup is perfect for any lip color experiment. But for this look, we want a delicate lips look. We apply the concealor all over the lips and dab lipstain on the inside part of the lips. This will make your lips appear smaller and more delicate. Don't forget to apply blush and contour your face for more define face.

And TA-DAH...

That's it. Your Chinese New Year makeup look has finished. Put your hair up and wear pretty dresses!

Once again, we wish you a prosperous time. Until we meet again!

à bientôt!
