Celebrate Lunar New Year with these limited edition make up releases

This year’s Lunar New Year is held on February 12th, 2021. The date changes every year as it is based on the traditional Chinese calendar. More commonly celebrated in Asia, it is also known as the Spring Festival or Chinese New Year.

There are many traditions that are associated with Chinese New Year, such as giving money inside a red envelope (紅包, read as “hong bao”). Furthermore, households are decorated with red and gold decorations, because red represents luck, happiness and is typically known as a lucky colour. Moreover, each new year has a dedicated zodiac animal, and this year is the year of the Ox.
