2022 is the year of the Tiger, with Tigers said to be “vigorous and ambitious, daring and courageous, enthusiastic and generous, self-confident with a sense of justice and a commitment to help others for the greater good.” While some of us may not be born in Tiger years (Goat squad what’s up), we could all use some more of the features that make Tigers so great.
To get you into the mood of becoming the best Tiger you can be, we challenged ourselves to put together a whole look with just Lunar New Year products. Read on to check out what goodies we have found for you!
Every great makeup look begins with skin prep, and since no one does Lunar New Year like Clinique we recommend starting off with the adorably packaged Limited Edition Jumbo Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. The moisturizer itself is designed to keep you hydrated all day and works well for sensitive skin but what really gets me hyped about this product is the tiger lid.
Remember when I said no one does Lunar New Year like Clinique? Well I’m back with another adorable limited product – this time a highlighter. Every year they release a limited highlighter stamped with the animal of that year. This years tiger Cheek Pop Highlighter is almost too cute to use, but if you must then it will give you a dewy, golden glow.
Huda Beauty’s Lunar New Year Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ticks all the boxes and then some. Cute packaging? Tick. Mattes and shimmers? Tick. Shades that suit all skin tones? Tick. I have three addictions in my life: caffeine, cute packaging and neutral eyeshadow palettes. While I might not get caffeine out of this palette I will definitely get the others.
Charlotte Tilbury has released a limited Lunar New Year run of her Matte Revolution Lipstick in three shades: K-Romance, Only Muse and Walk of a Star. While these three shades are super wearable for all skin tones, I’m especially partial to Walk of a Star. It’s a gorgeous rose shade and we love the longevity of a matte lipstick!
The powder of the pros, the powder of your peers, the powder of perfection. Laura Mercier has released their iconic finish powder in limited packaging to celebrate Lunar New Year, and since I think EVERYONE should have this powder in their collection now is a great time to get a super cute version. This powder is lightweight, sheer and has no flashback! Ya’ll know how hard it is to find a great powder with no flashback – even Angelina Jolie has been caught with a flashback faux pax at a premier before – so do not sleep on this powder.
Westman Atelier have put together a Lunar New Year The Shanghai Edition Set, which despite not having the wild Tiger themed packaging does include their volumizing mascara alongside a lip palette. It uses galactoarabinan to hydrate your lashes while being gluten and cruelty free so it is a great addition to your collection even if it doesn’t come with tiger print packaging.
So… what about foundation? Since there aren’t very many Lunar New Year themed foundations, I’m going to recommend one that will at least give me that hit of caffeine that I desperately need: the Marc Jacobs Extra Shot Caffeine Concealer and Foundation. Infused with caffeine, hydrating and full coverage in super luxe packaging – need I say more?! Find your perfect foundation match here (matchmymakeup.com) now.
So there you have it – a full face of Lunar New Year products! What Chinese zodiac sign are you? If you’re a fellow caffeine addicted Goat - let’s be best friends.
