Chinese New Year Makeup

Since the Lunar New Year is just around the corner, I’ve decided to create this Chinese New Year makeup inspired by the year of the Red Monkey! This look is filled with gold and red which represent wealth and luck! I know that there’s a lot of different cultures who celebrate the Lunar New Year, so I’ll be referring it as Lunar New Year instead of Chinese New Year. I wrote Chinese New Year on the title for SEO purposes. I hope that’s ok with everyone!

Anyways, for the video tutorial I do apologize for the blurry clip towards the end of the video. I didn’t realize my camera went out of focus when I was doing my blush and highlighter..newbie mistake…sorry 🙁

Oh, I also want to mention, I just bought the Chanel foundation I used for the tutorial. This tutorial is actually my first time using the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow foundation (shade 30). I do like this foundation, but I find it a little bit too pink on my skin. I’m going to give this foundation another try and perhaps do a little review for you guys next week.

Enjoy the tutorial below, and see you guys next week for a new tutorial! Leave me comments for requests! 🙂
