Lunar New Year will arrive on February 1 as we welcome in the year of the tiger.
The tiger has an energetic and risk-taking energy, which might just be the mood you embody as the Chinese new year begins.
As always at this point in the calendar, brands release themed makeup to celebrate and mark the occasion – usually to suit the animal in the spotlight.
Red is a colour that’s often used, too, given it’s thought to be lucky.
What’s always guaranteed though, is pretty packaging.
So whether you’re celebrating the New Year or are in need of a makeup refresh, now’s a good time to snag classic bestselling products in limited edition cases – making them that bit more special.
These are our top Lunar New Year beauty products – which will sell out sharpish.
