#1: Ditch the red lips for coral
#2: Match your lip colour with your outfit
The easiest way to make your look stand out: By matching your lipstick to your Chinese New Year outfit. Just keep to more neutral hues for the rest of the face to avoid overwhelming the look.
#3: Turn heads with graphic eyeshadow
Whether it’s a bold swathe of colour right below the eyebrows (left) or a more painterly, brush-on effect (right), these looks will definitely make any red outfit stand out even more.
#4: Have fun with glitter
Dusting glitter on your eyelids = Been there, done that. Take reference from this runway beauty look and apply it to the centre of your lower lids for a more fashion-forward look. It’ll also help to open up your eyes without being too garish.
#5: Play with unconventional eyeshadow shades

Try unconventional eyeshadow colours such as a metallic pink (left) and a subtle gold paired with dark blue eyeshadow on the outer corner of eyes.
#6: Do draping
Contour your face using blusher – by that, we mean sweeping your blush along your cheekbones up toward your eyebrows – for a fresh-faced appeal.
