Who else takes it upon themselves every Chinese New Year to do something extra auspicious? Be it wearing red, going all out with decorations or bellowing your loudest at every yusheng toss…what’s CNY without trying hard to huat ah!! So this year, we took our endeavours up a notch with an extra auspicious makeover from Milani Cosmetics. Yup, we got ourselves the ultimate CNY makeup look for good fortune using our zodiac’s 2020 lucky colours!


We love this diffused glam look with warm, golden tones on Andrea to match her zodiac’s lucky colour for 2020 (yellow!):   


How Andrea Got Her Auspicious Makeup Look

Base: Milani’s Screen Queen Foundation (SGD26)

Keep your eyes peeled for Milani’s newest foundation with a Digital Bluelight Filter™ to guard against all that prolonged exposure to phone/laptop screens. Launching March 2020 in selected Watsons stores islandwide!

Cheeks: Milani Luminoso Glow Shimmering Face Palette (SGD36.45)

Like Milani’s iconic Luminoso Baked Blush, the shimmering face palette features buttery and buildable rosy hues for an incandescent glow. Mix up the shades to illuminate, sculpt and make a statement!

Highlight: Milani Strobe Light Liquid Highlighter 01 After Glow (SGD20.28)

This was hands down, my favourite product of the lot! The highly concentrated formula is ultra-fine, flexible and buildable. The possibilities are endless, it’s liquid brilliance. 

Lips: Milani’s Ludicrous Lip Gloss (SGD19.50)

The decade rewind we’ve been waiting for — it’s out with the matte and in with the shine! Milani’s Ludicrous Lip Gloss sure lives up to its name with its lustrous, full-bodied high-shine finish (you should see the way it catches light). The rich colour payoff makes the glosses great both as lip toppers, or on their own. They launch February 2020 in selected Watsons stores islandwide.
