Get your good fortune face on this Lunar New Year with these red and gold beauty finds

Lunar New Year is upon us, which means a lot of dinners with family and friends. Brighten that smile with these red and gold beauty goodies; everyone knows a "Kung Hei Fat Choy"and a grin will get you more lai see!

1 Borghese Hydro-Minerali Overnight Oxygen Crème Mask (HK$500)

Nothing beats the food at this time of year, but dishes do tend to be a little oilier than usual, which isn't great for your skin. Treating your face to a hydrating mask like this one after cleansing at night will help keep breakouts at bay.

2 Shu Uemura Laque Supreme in RD01 Charismatic (HK$230)

If you want to try rocking a red lip but are still a little intimidated by bold shades, this lipgloss is perfect. It sets like a hydrating stain and it's fairly sheer, but with a buildable texture. Plus, it stays on for hours!

3 The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Blush Brush (HK$199)

Yes, there are other blush brushes out there, but look how cute this one is! Adorable!

4 Too Cool For School Glam Rock Extreme Color Eyes Eyeliner in #4 (HK$150)

Next time you're applying liner, try reaching for a crimson shade instead of black. It's more unusual, and the colour will brighten your eyes and make you look more awake.

5 Tony Moly Gold 24K Mask (HK$208)

To stop your skin looking dull from all the nights when you stay up late eating and playing mahjong, apply a quick mask in the morning after cleansing and before moisturising; it'll help makeup look more natural too.

6 Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in China Flower (HK$60)

Give those fingertips a festive touch with a pop of red nail polish. This range from Revlon goes on nicely and the scent actually does stick around for a while, which is a fun quirk.

7 Schwarzkopf Extra Care 6 Miracles Oil Essence (HK$69)

While the weather is still dry, it's common that your hair will lose moisture and become brittle. To battle this, finger-comb one or two pumps of oil through your locks from the mid lengths to the tips to keep them looking healthy and glossy.

8 MAC eyeshadow in Strike While Haute (HK$150)

Pat a gold or bronze shadow over your entire eyelid, then apply this eyeshadow just on the outer corners. It's a fun and easy way to use red on your eyes without it looking like you've been punched! Remember to blend it well into the metallic shade.

9 MAC Cremesheen Glass in Meteoric (HK$185)

If you're comfortable wearing a bold red lip, this high shine gloss is the way to go. The lush, creamy texture keeps it on your lips for ages, and the high pigmentation means just one swipe gives you an intense pop of colour.

10 Les Merveilleuses Ladurée tinted lip balm (HK$270)

This deep pink lip balm is housed in a cute and festive gold tin. It adds just a touch of colour to your lips while keeping them moisturised; and because it's a balm, you can also dab and blend it on your cheeks for a subtle glow of colour.
