TIPS: CHINESE NEW YEAR BEAUTY GUIDANCE

Hello!

Whewww, February is here and we all know that this month is full of celebration and as i would love to call it, the month of red :)

We've got Valentine for everyone and Chinese New Year. 
Since they are closed together, I decided to do one post for a beauty guidance tips for you ;)

*DO KEEP IN MIND THIS IS HOW I LOVE DOING THE BEAUTY & MAKEUP STEPS, IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN VERSION, IT IS OKAY :) *

As we all know that, to celebrate and welcome the new year, new attire and look is a must. It is a believe that to get rid of all the previous bad luck and welcoming the new luck and life :)
But i love to see this as, a whole new makeover for me ;) 


#1. NEW CLOTHES
- Chinese believe that to welcome the new year, a new attire is a must ;D so i see this as an opportunity to be able to shop for a whole new attire mainly for top, bottom and footwear! well if it is possible, to buy new bags, makeup, skincare and accessories :P.
I do suggest to buy these in a few weeks in advance so that you can have time to think and consider everything and of course, prices would be cheaper too!




#2. NEW HAIR
- Another believe is to have a new hairstyle :D This is usually done like a few days before the celebration. You can color your hair, cut your hair or do something to have a new hair look but as for me, i am not the type of person who can change hair easily because i have a very round face so that kinda limit me to hair styles and.. i dont go for short hair :P so i always cut a little bit of my fringe, just to keep the believe and tradition of throwing away the bad luck :P




#3. SKINCARE
- This is important even if there is no ocassion, a good and routine skin care for your skin. I do suggest to buy and use skincare that are suitable for your skin :) Do a facial scrub & mask at least once every two weeks or a week :) because it will get rid of the dead skin cell, leaves your skin silky smooth and somehow it gives a glowing effect on the face :) well... at least that is how i feel :P
If you have acne, use a spot acne treatment to reduce the redness or swelling. Dont forget to ALWAYS use a cleansing milk, facial foam and toner :) Believe me, a make up remover wont remove ALL of them that's why you need the three step of cleansing :)  and of course dont forget to moisturize your face!

As for the body, this is optional but some girls would love to go all the way to make them presented nicely :) so i suggest to do a waxing/shaving a week before :) and a body scrub 2 days before.



#4. MAKEUP
- As for makeup, I always go for a natural look :) but i know some people would go for a more dressier look :) and that is fine. The way i think is... I am going to be in a house full of cousins and relatives and it is going to be packed, crowded and hot and busy, I know i have a very oily skin so I am trying to avoid a cakey look, so a natural make up it is for me. The Makeup Essentials for me are: Primer, foundation, powder, eyebrow and lipstick :)
(psst.. to see the kind of natural make i love, simply click here )




#5. HEALTHY DIET
- This is also important, I usually take a healthy supplement like vit c, calcium etc because i dont want to fall sick when the celebration is around the corner :) and also try to have a good diet before the yummy feast because we all know the food! So there will be no guilty feeling!



so.. i hope my tips and guidance help you in sorting out the basic beauty needs!
