Eschew the bob and red lips this Chinese New Year. Take things in an unexpected direction with unusual colours — both vibrant and muted — and hair that is slightly undone and gorgeously, gloriously textured


Want a rich and luscious lippie shade without going the scarlet or ruby route? Try a highly-pigmented, purple-red or magenta with a touch of silver liner around the eyes for a strong yet slight off-centre combination.

Blue and turquoise shades actually look great on Asian complexions when well-applied. Try a smoky yet dimensional blue shadow, smudged electric blue liner and plush, pink lips. For the hair, a soft, textured ponytail is the fashion take on girly-pretty.

When it doubt, try purple. This eye-catching shade can be worn on both the lids and lips if you want to raise eyebrows. Put the focus on your face and keep the look elegant with a chic updo, adding volume at the crown for a flattering, elongating effect.

You don't have to go wayang to grab attention with soft pastel shades and fluffy waves. Eyes are washed in
a ring of powder blue shadow, with only mascara for definition, while lips are dusted in a pale lilac for a
subtle, ombré effect.
