The Chinese New Year festive mood is ringing subtly in the atmosphere, seemingly reminding us that it’s less than a month to receiving big fat hongbaos, chomping down twister fries, feasting on CNY goodies and decking in brand new outfits from top to toe.
You’ll want to look your best for your full day back-to-back house visiting schedule, and your makeup can very well define your look-of-the-day.
If you think that putting on make-up is time consuming and you’ll also need to touch-up throughout the day, you’re not wrong. However, with the right products and techniques, it can be a breeze for you to achieve the look you want without having to spend hours on end in front of the mirror.
Watch this step-by-step tutorial where Shiseido Make-up Artist, Alison Tay, dishes out the secrets to achieving a 24-hour picture perfect look.
