“Ensure you have good base makeup. I love Becca primers and Urban Decay’s Naked range of concealers, which will help to hide tiredness due to lack of sleep or pesky spots. A long-lasting matte lipstick – one that will last through all the feasting – is also a must-have.” – Marie Soh

Tom Ford Lip Colour In Something Wild, $76

“Tom Ford’s Lips & Boys clutch-sized lipstick is handy for quick touch-ups when you’re making your visiting rounds. YSL Beauty’s cushion foundation, which is lightweight and gives a matte finish, covers up blemishes well too.” – Sha Shamsi

Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Brightening, $80

“The Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Brightening cushion foundation comes packed with skincare properties and offers great coverage. I also love Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes as you can create many looks with it while travelling on the go. They have great colour payoff and a smooth texture too.” – Grego Oh

“The Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Colour lip stain in #142 Creatif lipstick is used as a stain and its long-lasting coral shade will help your complexion appear fresher. Another must-have is the Chanel eyeshadow palette in Codes Subtil – its light, soft shades with slight shimmer will perfectly complement the strong colours in your Chinese New Year outfits.” – Benedict Choo

YSL Volupte Tint-In-Balm N°2 Tease Me Pink, $54

“I love that the new YSL Beauty Volupte Tint-in-Balm moisturises your lips without giving an oily finish. Cle de Peau Beaute eyeshadow palettes, which usually come in muted, earth colours, will give you a healthy, natural look. Nars’ Navagio Beach Sheer Pop Multiple is also a favourite – I like the luminous, slight shimmer and non-powdery effect. Besides the cheeks, you can apply it on the T-zone and use it as an eyeshadow.” – Manisa Tan
