Lady Gorgeous Makeup Looks this Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year Look

We love period dramas – engrossing storylines, lavish sets, but most of all, we love the makeup looks! Here are our fave looks from recent Chinese films and TV shows.


1. Arise, The Golden Sun

Empress Phoenix in The Curse of the Golden Flower

In “Curse of the Golden Flower”, the use of gold and red of the eyes remind us of a sunrise. We think it’s sexy and confident!

2. Scarlet Red

Zhang Ziyi - The Banquet stills Empress Wan in The Banquet

Red is such a royal colour! We love how confident this makes actress Zhang Ziyi look. The bold red on her eyes is statement-making.

3. Lady Gorgeous

Empress Zhen in Legend of Zhen Hua

It’s all about the contouring here. The use of neutral earth tones helps define her delicate features and bring out her bambi eyes.

4. Plum Blossom Kiss

Empress Wu from Empress of China

A defined winged eyeliner, matte ruby lips and porcelain skin is always classic and looks good on virtually everyone.

5. Pretty in Pink

Empress Zhao from The Queens

Sweet pink lips with a soft wash of pink eyeshadow looks feminine and demure. Perfect if you’re wearing a 50s style fit-n-flare dress this CNY!
