Hello all! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Lunar New Year! I love celebrating the Lunar New Year! Unfortunately, it’s not so fun when the family aren’t around. Like Christmas, the Lunar New Year is all about family and friends. For me, traditionally, the eve of the New Year is the happiest as everyone in family and extended family come together at my grandparent’s for the biggest dinner of the year! Since my family isn’t here, I thought I would celebrate with some Lunar New Year Makeup Inspiration!
Monolids. Some people who have monolids despise them and go ahead with plastic surgery to have them changed to double eyelids. For me, I’m proud to have them. My eyelashes are a tad bit shorter because of my monolids but nothing a good pair of falsies can’t fix!
Eyebrows are probably the most important piece of a puzzle to completing a makeup look – for me, at least. If I were to go out without any makeup. I would at least “wear” my eyebrows. I’m one of those people makeup who doesn’t have much hair on my body (i.e. no shaving required) but that means I don’t have any eyebrows or eyelashes. Yes, that means I literally have to draw my eyebrows every.single.day. Well, I don’t have to but after seeing what a difference it makes, I need to.
I look froward to IMATS every year. Last year, I thought I could get away with not going to IMATS but I regretted the minute that Saturday came around. To be honest, I was a little bit disappointed with IMATS. I thought there would be more speakers and more stalls to shop at. It was still a good time all the same! Let me share my shopping haul and some of the tips the speakers shared.
How do you clean your make-up brushes? With make-up brush cleaners bought at the stores? Maybe with some shampoo and olive oil? I usually wash my brushes with baby shampoo. However, with my recent bout of eczema from the constant washing, I’ve decided that maybe I should come up with another way of washing my brushes without getting my hands wet.
